It was about ten in the morning, when Zahira entered one of the gyms in the central area of Gotham City. Today just happened to be a day off work. As with wintery weather and most recent the blizzards. It was around the time, the museum closed for a week or maybe two. Although Zahira still had paper work to do here and there, but there was more free time. Rather than use this time for leisure, Zahira used most of it for chasing down leads and of course training. To keep trim and healthy. She had stronger senses, but she still was human. She had to have discipline. Usually she would do more training at the park or even at home, but it was cold out. It was also good to switch up the routine and one thing she surely enjoyed. Swimming. Zahira had never really been to a gym until Gotham, but she had mostly fell upon this gym by accident… A good accident it would seem… As the egyptian beauty entered the building. It was rather low key today, least for now, a couple people, perhaps because of the weather… Although once inside, it was certainly warm. Dry most of all. Of course not for long… Zahira swiped her card and headed straight for the ladies changing room. Met with perhaps one lady, maybe two. Otherwise, it was rather quiet. Stripping down to her black snake skin patterned bikini. Slipped on a casual pair of black shorts and a loose dark grey tee, bunched it a little to the side. Exposed her torso. Zahira dressed in the dark tones, perhaps to not to stand out that much and keep to herself. She wasn't one to point to herself, but with that said she did take pride in keeping her body in shape and well toned. She was expecting to sweat. To get a little bit wet. She wasn't really sure in what order, but she certainly had the time.
Putting the rest of her belongings into a locket and secured that, along with her glasses. She'd be a little blurry to begin with, but they often cleared doing her training. Slipped a pair of cheap sneakers on and hung a towel over her arm, plus a water bottle in her hand. Checked, she didn't need anything else. Leaving the changing room. Zahira decided before hoping into the pool. To warm up a little. So she headed to where the treadmills were, least one of the machines she knew how to work… Mostly… She didn't exactly go to a gym back in Egypt… Placing towel and bottle down. Zahira motioned and tied her black hair back in a loose pony tail. Flicking on the buttons. Soon Zahira fell to the gentle beat of the machine. Starting at a slow jog and slightly build up from there, not too high, least for now. Feeling the adrenaline start to kick in. The little beats of sweat. Kept her breathing in check. Zahira kept at that for the next ten minutes. It defiantly aided in waking her up and warming her muscles… Though she did desire and ached a little to get into that pool… To swim. She was normally used to rivers. Lakes, but well given how cold its was, not to mention it would get a lot more heads turning. A pool had to do, she had to say, perhaps even better, apart from the length, but this one certainly was a decent size. Plus heated… Yep, she was defiantly ready. Switching off the machine down to a walk and then to a stop. Taking a deep breath and catching it. Picked up her towel and dabbed her forehead a little. Her neck. A light sip of her bottle and off Zahira hopped to the pool. It wasn't far at all.
Through a door and a small passage way. Another door and Zahira was in the pool room. It was a little like walking into a large team room, it was so nice and inviting. Huge pool. A spa or two. A few chairs and space between. Plus smell of chorine! Zahira was certainly getting use to that. Making her way to an empty chair. Though from the looks, there was a lot of them. It was most relaxing when it was this quiet. Zahira smiled humbling to herself, before placing her towel. Bottle down on the chair. Slipped off her sneakers. Placing them, closely beside the chair. Slipping her shorts down from her dark toned legs and lastly lifted her top off. Put them on the chair and headed for the pool. Nearer to the deeper end. Came down to the edge and took a seat. Dunking her legs into the pool. Up grew the warming sensation hitting every part, tickling and with the desire for more. Smiled a little warmer. Feeling. Hearing the soothing ripples that broke on the surface. Swirling her toes ever so subtly, felt it between every toe. Reaching an arm up, Zahira pulled out her pony tail and place the tie on her wrist. Ran her hand gently through her hair and tousled it lightly. Before Zahira made that move and pushed herself off the edge. Into the water, fell momentarily deep. Sank into the warm water, before reaching the surface. Taking a deep breath.
