Laura (makeRoom4Me) posted a blog and a challenge about jump roping and I used to love jump roping as a kid so on Saturday I bought a jump rope and on Sunday I tried to jump rope and oh man am I out of shape. It used to be so easy! But I am 47 years old! I managed to do about 15 but I could only do about 2 in a row.
Today my 8 year old niece told me that she can't do any on grass and I should them on the hard pavement. I was trying to do it on the grass so if I fell I would not break anything! So today I did it on the pavement and oh my gosh, I was able to do 48 and about 20-25 in a row! She is one smart cookie. So tomorrow I will try again. I was really out of breath after the 48 so I decided to take a 30 minute walk and tomorrow she promises to bring her jump rope so that we can jump rope together. She told me that I could jump rope better than her!
I have to tell you I was actually impressed with myself for the first time in a very long time!
