Yesterday I dragged myself out of bed for my workout. I knew what was coming... and I was NOT excited.
I drank my water, popped in the DVD and got started. Toward the end of the 2nd set of exercises I was really impressed with myself. I was still going strong - my HRM wasn't beeping at me - I was actually feeling GOOD! I wondered why I had found Tabata so difficult before.
A couple sets later I remembered as sweat poured off, my breathing got heavier, and my muscles groaned in protest. Yep, a workout I love to hate. Oh so effective! But, oh, so tough!
After taking a couple weeks off from Tabata and coming back to it I was definitely impressed with the number of reps I was now able to do of most of the exercises in a mere 20 seconds. And as I did today's new workout - Chest/Shoulders/Tris - I was surprised to feel the muscles definition on my arms as I worked the triceps. I am definitely making some BIG progress.
