thanks for your replies!
Ok, first, I think I'm jumping too high...
For some reason I seem to trip if I try to only jump ~ 2" above ground. Probably also because the rope (leather) is still a bit 'wiggly' from being packed up, so right in the middle it makes like a little loop all the time and by jumping higher I try to avoid tripping over LOL.
Secondly, right now I'm wearing cheap kind of sneaks (20$ from Payless) as my good ones are already in the move/packed..
Third, yes, I'm jumping on concrete, so I guess all 3 points together is the worst combo, huh?
That really sucks as right now jumping rope is my only way of doing cardio (other than workout DVDs) and I feel that today, for doing Tae Bo for ex., I'll have to take it easy as even this morning my knees hurt while walking...
I guess I'll have to take it really easy today (rest completely?) and see how it goes tomorrow. Maybe I need to really build up and try to not jump too high?
