Decline In Jumprope Ability

I’ve been noticing these past few days (weeks) that my ability to jump rope has dwindled to nearly nothing.
As you recall, I started a morning exercise routine as a new years resolution on the 2013 to 2014 new years. Jump rope has been part of it since the beginning. Although I never got really good, I could jump a dozen or so times before tripping up, my record number of jumps is 50 or 60.

But lately I trip up on the first, second or third jump. Can’t explain it.

Doing OK on the sit-ups and leg lifts and pushups though.

Sheba our dog is really fat. Maybe she needs me to take her  running regularly….

Thursday Thoughts

Today the best I could get was 14 jumps.
The dogs are out in the yard and I am posting before my shower.
I have nothing in mind to post about so I’m just rambling
After I posted day-before-yesterday, I downloaded Wunderground. It seems by far the best weather app.
Glad it’s almost the weekend
That is all for today.
Over and out!

Jumping Rope

Day before yesterday, in the afternoon, I made a jump rope. I read an article about how good it was for you and thought I’d give it a whirl.

Yesterday morning I did 12 jumps without tripping up. Today was  23. I try  to go about 5 minutes.

I never jumped rope in my life till yesterday, but it got my heart pumping good.

Also yesterday, I stopped after work and swam. First time in a long time.

Try it! you’ll like it!

I could tell I was in a better mood last night and I slept relatively well.

Have a good day!
