Describe an activity that made you feel tired

  • You should say:
  • When and where it took place
  • Why you took part in it
  • What the activity was
  • And explain why it made you feel tired
  • I am not very athletic, but I had always thought of myself being fit.
  • However, this illusion got shattered pretty badly recently
  • My friend is very religious and he invited me to visit Vaishno Devi with him.
  • Vaishno Devi is renowned Hindu Temple located in Jammu and Kashmir.
  • The temple is at a 12 km trek from Katra.
  • Till Katra, people go by car and then people walk from there.
  • A lot of people go there every year from very young children to even 80 and 90 year olds.
  • So, I didn’t think it was going to be difficult journey.
  • In fact when we reached,I was pretty excited and was happy to be out walking after sitting
    in the car for a long time.
  • That excitement soon turned into misery and regret for coming to this journey unprepared.
  • The first two kilometers were easy but after that I started feeling it. My ankles and feet
    started paining.
  • I asked my friend if we could take a break, but he said we had to be back before nightfall so
    we didn’t have time for a break.
  • He told me people only take a break at the halfway mark, where there is another temple.
  • So, I slowly dragged my feet and kept on walking.
  • By kilometre 5, I felt like I had no strength left in my legs anymore.
  • I still pushed myself and reached the half way mark somehow.
  • I told my friend that I would wait there and he can go complete the rest of the journey by
    himself.
  • However, he didn’t listen.
  • We took a short break and then we started again.
  • The break relieved some of the pain but after 500 meters I was miserable again.
  • I complained a lot, but my friend just kept on motivating me.
  • I still don’t know how I completed the rest of the journey.
  • I was dead tired by the end of it
  • That day I decided to work on my physical fitness.
  • Due to studies, my life had become sedentary and I had let go of my fitness.
  • I knew if I felt tired so easily at such a young age, I wouldn’t be able to do anything when I
    grew older.
