Working out with Pain

Different kinds of pain.

Muscle ache pain? The result of accumulation of lactic acid in muscles.

3,2,1 Beep.

Go as fast as possible. Just whack and tahan the pain. Within seconds of the workout, panting hard and fast. The number of the PM5 monitor starts to plummet. Taking longer break in between reps and sets. The workout becomes a pure grind and just about counting down. Start questioning about life.

When the next beep is heard, collapse on the floor.

This was pretty much the life cycle of a workout.

Painful? Yes.

Did I enjoy working out? Initially, yes.

Is this sustainable? No.

Why not sustainable?

Fight or flight.

Stress to the body.

Intent of the workout.

Play the long game.
