I feel so bootleg! My jumprope is just a length of the cording I use for clothesline! It's a nice weight and since it's cotton it absorbs the sweat from my grip when I get hot...

Cool. Is that a Valeo jump rope? I used a Valeo rope for a long time. It looks a lot like yours. It's a rubber rope I think. I like the way the weight of the rope keeps it turning steady and not too fast. With that rope I could jump between 1000x and 2000x. These days I don't jump nearly that much. Enjoy your rope!

I like counting my own jumps. I need my gaze and mind both to stay focused in order not to mess up. Counting helps me do that. But, when my mind does wander, and I can't remember if I am counting 300 something or 400 something, I pick the lower number and start counting from that point. That's the penalty I get for daydreaming. I also like a rope that is light and simple. I use a cable rope. I posted a photo of it a long time ago in our team's photo section. Ball bearings are a must for me. They allow the smooth and easy turning of the rope. Maybe the ball bearings have something to do with my rope not getting twisted. Hmm....

I've been inconsistent, too, but I did it yesterday, and hopefully will get to it this afternoon, too. Where are you seeing these jump ropes that count for you? Maybe I'll make a 30-day jumping streak as a goal and reward myself with a counting rope! I do LOVE my FitBit and am kinda coveting a bicycle computer, too.

Okay, I only got 358 jumps in 5 minutes - spent a lot of time detangling myself after I messed up. But I did my five minutes of jumping, and I'll do better tomorrow. Thanks for keeping me accountable!

All day I've had this on my computer to remind me to get in a mere five minutes of jumping rope, and now I'm 30 minutes from needing to leave for the weekend and I'm not fully packed. So much for that!

I'm jumping tonight for cardio 'cause it's pouring outside and that ruins the appeal of running for me.

I'm back, too. I've been focusing on swim/bike/run, but I'm ready to return to more strength training and jumping.

Hello everyone, I joined the challenge on Monday, 7/7 after jumping two sessions (20 minutes) on my second day of watching the jumping rope video. I have been absent from Sparkpeople sporadically since, 2012- I am a returning spark member, participant within several teams and this one challenge. I hope to become an active and consistent member of Sparkpeople. Please wish me well while I jump rope without the rope emoticon . I am jumping anyway and I enjoy jumping emoticon emoticon !!!
