Laps Not Reps

Unread post by Highfly »

Alaina was doing some endurance training today, and using a different method than usual to do so. The 46 year old was clad in a red bikini as she hit the pool of the gym. Alaina was set on doing some laps and trying to keep up as fast a swim pace as she could while not stopping. today was about the long haul and how much she could keep up a tough pace but not an all out swimming sprint. The amazon was still in peak shape but at 46 now she was far from the youngest woman on the roster. She knew she had to keep at it as her window to get another title around her waist was a limited one.

Alaina was in a peaceful mindset, eager to keep working and improving herself without stressing about a recent bumpy patch in her record. She was confident she could find her way again with this surge taking her to the top. She needed big wins consistently in order to pull that off. She had tunnel vision of sorts while she trained doing lap after lap oblivious to the world around her as she continued to seek to improve herself.

It had been a quiet day at the gym. Something Sophia preferred in all honestly. She did not interact too well with others, and kept her distance. She had already spent hours in the gym, working on various machines to help further fine tune her body and form. Satisfied with her workout for the day, all that she had left to do was to spend one or two hours in the pool. It was much less impactful in forms of exercise, but still worked the entire body... plus, Sophia had always found something relaxing about the pool. Today she was fortunate, as it was completely empty when she first entered after having a quick shower.

Sophia was clad in a black and red two piece bikini outfit, leaving most of her stunning figure bare. She had a slender yet powerful looking form, alluring to the eyes like her own beauty. A few minutes would pass after Sophia made an elegant dive and began to swim the length... when another would enter the pool room. Sophia sighed under her breath, realising she had lost the exclusivity of the massive swimming pool, and continued to press on with a casual breaststroke.... that was when she caught the sight of the older woman clad in the two piece bikini outfit.

She stopped... and she felt her heart catch in her chest when she realised who it was after she dived in and intensely began to swim. Standing waist deep in the shallower end, Sophia couldn't help but just stare at the woman as she began to do lengths. Sophia felt an unusual knot in her stomach... something she had not felt before. She blinked a few times and looked as the woman passed her...
"Alaina the Amazon..." Sophia spoke... but her words were barely a whisper by the time they passed by her parting lips. Swimming in the pool was one of her childhood heroines... Alaina Sanders-Haines... Sophia felt nervous all at once, not knowing what to do. Part of her wanted to try and stop Alaina... to speak even though she did not know what to say... another part of her wanted to swim away in terror and get out of the pool and out of the gym!

Alaina kept on swimming doing her laps as she was starting to tire. She was doing her best to keep going when she noticed that the other woman in the pool had stopped to watch her. Alaina glanced over and kept swimming but decided to reach out. "Hey there, are the laps tiring you out too?" Alaina asked as she kept swimming keeping her ears open for a response even though it was clear to her that the woman was standing in the shallow end not swimming. She was hoping that this woman was up for nice conversation as perhaps if Alaina could distract herself then she could keep pushing through how tired she felt in the pool.

"I..." Sophia's words caught in her chest. It was very unlike her. Normally Sophia was not without something to say the moment someone asked her... but this was The Amazon. Sophia had memories of climbing the neighbours tree to watch wrestling in the window. Alaina had been one of the fan favourites even back then when she used to watch from the tree, a young up and comer who rose through the ranks in quick succession. All these years later... all the struggle and all the changes that would occur... Sophia never would have guessed she would have such an opportunity to be within her presence.

Alaina went past again, and Sophia had yet to move. She was not sure what to say or what to do... but when Alaina next came by during her exercise, Sophia was finally able to get something out... but felt ashamed in asking it without thinking.
"Can... can I have your autograph?... Please?" Sophia whispered meekly... very much unlike herself given she normally spoke with command and total authority. If only her younger self could see her now. She felt a mix of emotions... shame for how she acted... excitement... it was a blend of emotions that did not go well together, and here Sophia was drinking them all.

Alaina was an old veteran and knew many of the women on the roster saw her when they were little girls. This type of reaction was somewhat common reaction.

Alaina heard the young lady ask foe an autograph and Alaina stopped, starting to swim over with water cascading off her body as she stepped up, running her hands through her hair to push it back. Alaina reached out to shake this womans hand and smiled. "You see to know me, so what is your name?" Alaina asked ready to sign whatever she had and happy for pictures afterward.

Sophia looked upon Alaina, who stood as a marvel of a woman before the German, rising from the water like a bond girl. There was a strength to her form, with plenty of her Amazonian like physique left exposed to the elements as only a two piece bikini covered her body. Sophia herself was just as alluring... though more slender her physic was well defined from hard years of training. However she did not stand as proudly as Alaina was right now... her stance and smaller position all but giving away that nerves were getting the better of her.

It took Sophia what felt like a good minute or so to realise Alaina was offering her hand in welcoming, and with a bit of a rush Sophia took her hand with her own, shaking firmly but perhaps a little too enthusiastically. She felt instantly ashamed as she retreated her arm soon after, and barely had the courage to even look Alaina in the eyes right now.
"Me? My name is... Sophia Wolfe..." Sophia spoke in a halting and meek fashion. Sophia was a household name herself, she was a former champion of the FMW which was once considered one of LAW's biggest rival federations before it went bankrupt due to mismanagement. She was one of the top wrestlers in that federation, and the LAW took no time signing her on once her contract became invalid.

She was still new to the LAW however, and getting used to the roster here. She knew Alaina was an established member of said roster... but Sophia never imagined she would get to meet her in person.
"I... I'm a fan..." Sophia added nervously... which was one hell of an understatement...

Alaina smiled and nodded as Sophia shook her hand in a very rapid way. "Sophia Wolfe.... I am a fan of yours as well, I have seen some of your impressive work in FMW. I try to keep up on wrestling everywhere. You are quite impressive in the ring perhaps we can get to grappling some day in front of a crowd?" Alaina said with a wink.

The amazon waded through the water to a gym bag, grabbing her phone and getting it ready to take a picture. "All right how about a picture of us flexing like the wrestling warriors we are?" Alaina proposed as she was moving close to Sophia to snap a few pictures of the two.

Sophia opened her mouth to speak... but no words came out. She was in awe, that much was clear. She felt her heart skip a beat within her chest when Alaina began to speak to her, knowing who she was. The thought of Alaina watching her wrestle... it stunned Sophia. Alaina was one of her heroes, and she never considered the fact that perhaps Alaina had taken time to see some of her matches.
"I...." Sophia tried to speak... normally she always had something to say... but today words were failing her.

Alaina was no doubt used to such reactions by now, but Sophia wondered if she was used to it happening with fellow wrestlers? She watched as Alaina moved away for a moment, going to her gym bag at the edge of the pool before she began to walk back towards her. Sophia was beginning to realise she had not moved from her spot for a good while now... but she didn't know how to react or what to do. Alaina was all smiles, coming back with a camera in hand. Before Sophia knew what was going on, Alaina was besides her, a powerful arm coming behind her to flex before holding the camera up.

Sophia finally moved... but the moment was a blur to her once the flash went off. She can't remember what pose she was pulling, she just remembered doing something. Needless to say, the poor woman was star struck around the Amazon.
"Was... was that okay?" Sophia whispered, finally glad just to get some words out.

Alaina snapped a few pictures and then began to show them to Sophia. "Yeah they came out great! You look like you are showing off some serious power here!" Alaina said to Sophia as she looked over the picture. Both women were smiling and flexing. "This is like your victory pose after ya tossed around that large German lady in one of your final title defenses. I tell ya, you really pack some punch and have far more strength than most women your size." Alaina said giving her a pat on the back.

"So, how long have you been here in LAW? How many ladies have ya pinned in one of our rings so far?" Alaina asked looking to find out a bit more about her fan here.

Sophia looked at the camera photo upon the small preview screen. She was taken a little aback by herself... seeing she had quite a strong pose, holding a fist out... it wasn't that however that caught her off guard so much... but the smile she had on her lips. Sophia smiled rarely, and when she did, it was always subtle.. small... Standing next to Alaina, she had never seen herself smile like that before, she never even felt herself do it. She looked happy...

She was so distracted by looking at the photo of herself standing next to one of her childhood heroes that she hadn't noticed Alaina asking her another question. She snapped out of her daydream and looked upon Alaina again after getting a pat on the back, still looking a little bewildered but slowly managing to get a bit of a grip...
"Here at the LAW?... Not long. I.... I've only had one match so far. I defeated Kira Scylla... on my LAW debut." Sophia whispered. It wasn't a dream debut by any means, given Kira wanted to squeeze the life out of her, but Sophia had prevailed in the end.

"Can... can you send this photo to me a bit later?... I'd love to have it framed. If... if that's okay with you?" Sophia whispered, slowly beginning to finally come out of her shell a bit.
