I visited the gym in ISB once during my stay there as a student and never went again for reasons best known to most one day gymmers. A few days back, I had this wonderful idea from somewhere to start using the office gym. Armed with the required accessories and a determination to not let it end as a one day affair this time, I started using the gym this Monday. I was content doing cycling and using the treadmill when one of my colleagues here suggested that I talk to the gym instructor. After two days of following the regimen prescribed by the gym instructor, my arms started aching badly. The pain has now extended to the shoulders too. My hand-to-mouth existance (literally and otherwise) has now been converted to a mouth-to-hand existance as I have to now move my mouth towards my hands to have food due to inability to lift my hands. The determination still persists though and I hope I continue visiting the gym at least for some time to come.
As the gym instructor in ISB used to say to my quad-mate Vikram – “No pain, no gain”.
