Pushing Tin

Finally after some months of pondering over the question of "to go or not to go".."again" , I finally decided to hit the local gym yesterday. I used to workout regularly a couple of years back until one day that gym got sealed all thanks to the mcd ***holes. Haven't pushed tin since then.

Reasons to start again were ranging from being inspired for the 100th time from rocky movies to looking like a stick figure due to the lack of exercise my work brings. So here is a brief description of my first day at the gym:

Sunday (The following is a conversation with myself in my head)
3:30 p.m. - I have got to go today to the gym no matter what
3:32 p.m. - Maybe I don't look that bad after all
3:33 p.m. - Flexing my non existent biceps. Hmmm... Maybe I should go..
3:34 p.m. - First week - The pains will start again. Should I reconsider?
3:35 p.m. - Checking my bicep one more time.
3:36 p.m. - OK I AM GOING.

5:00 p.m. - Back home : Mom asking "Everything ok? You're home early?!"
5:15 p.m. - Changed into my good ol Tracks (which are now pretty loose)
5:20 p.m. - Prepared 2 boiled eggs and lemonade.
5:30 p.m. - Gulped the 2 boiled eggs, Filled one bottle of water and we're off to AL's Muscle

5:40 p.m. - Enter gym. Look for instructor. Nervous as hell.
5:42 p.m. - A "JAT" with bouncer like body approaches.
5:50 p.m. - Negotiations over n hit the treadmill. HUff.. Huff.. Huff.. O look i'm running again! :D
5:53 p.m. - Break. TIme out.. Huff. huff.. Maybe I should walk before I run.
5:56 p.m. - Slowly increasing speed. Huff Huff. this aint so bad after all.
6:00 p.m. - Siiirrrr warm up ho gaya!

6:01 p.m. - Instructor : 30 pushups - 3 sets, 10 reps each
