I’m back to the torture day 1 program and I am not scaring you. It’s not easy to be in my position, a newbie gym – health buff if you call it. I’m adjusting. My “undeveloped” muscles are in pain and I don’t have the energy to lift weights.
Trainer Dennis told me to do the treadmill for 20 freakin’ minutes. I did not complain. He could be raising the bar higher this time. I’ve poured tons of sweat and the feeling was like taking a bath under the rain. Next stop is the warm up exercises – manageable. I know have the proper posture to do it. Would you wanna be the picture shown below? I bet not.
The legs and shoulder exercises were doable with 3 sets to complete. Going towards the biceps, triceps and the abdomen was really painful. My trainer told me to do the dumbbells worth 5 pounds, but I wasn’t able to surpass it – you could imagine the pain. So he took out the weights and I just carried the metal “thing”. I have to pause every minute for me to be able to meet the requirements that the trainer set. I know people were already staring at my immobile or just slow in doing everything. Wow! Again, this is not easy.
A lot of things are going around my mind, questions like: Shall I continue this? Is it okay to tell my trainer to lower down his expectations? Shall I go ahead and just run? I felt really down.
Thanks to Pinterest where I can get all the motivation I need to hopefully keep me in the go as always.
