Yes, I went back for a second Tabata workout and made it through alive! So what did I learn on Day 2?
1. The beautiful Australian woman is actually from Great Britain. Ooops.
2. The half balance ball thingie is called a “Bosu.” (Are you impressed by my knowledge of exercise equipment?)
3. Receiving a high five from a 6’4″ man after completing a set of mountain climbers is great motivation to attempt another set. (I have no clue why he was so freakishly happy while torturing himself, but he was. I think his exercise endorphins kick in much faster than mine do.)
4. My backside jiggles in disturbing ways when doing jacks from a plank position on the bosu. (Go ahead, try it. Position yourself in a plank with your hands on a bosu and your legs, feet together, stretched out behind you. Now stay in the plank while jumping so that your legs spread as if doing a jumping jack and then come back together. Parts of my body were bouncing that should never, ever bounce! Thank God I was on the back row!)
