DH gave me my own BOSU as a gift at Christmas and yesterday was its maiden voyage. What an eye-opener! I had used one a little bit in physical therapy when I was working on my ITB issues, but this workout was totally different.
It never ceases to surprise me, no matter how fit I may view myself, when I try something new, I feel like a complete klutz! Ran a half-marathon? - good for you ! Now bounce on top of this crazy contraption...yeah, right. Made it through weekly RIPPED classes? - way to go! Now try to make it through a Zumba class without damaging any body parts. It clearly emphasizes the need for cross-training in my life!
So this morning, I'm feeling it in my glutes and calves and ankles. Hopefully, with practice, it will get easier and then I can try some of the harder balancing moves. Meanwhile, I'm trying to come up with a name for my BOSU, but the only ones I can think of that start with a 'B' aren't suitable for blogging
Have a great weekend, everybody!
