Too sore to touch the rope yesterday as I really tried. But I was pushing for other things like meeting my 1000 minutes goal mark.

Congratulations to STEPH and FATHINSN!!!

I did four shots at 100 blind jumps for time today...
100 = 58.6s / 100 = 51.43s / 100 = 43.2s / 100 = 48.7s

1177 - 400

BALANCE = 777

With it being the final day of the month and being this close, I can't possible do no more jump rope today... haha so I am off to time myself to do the remaining 777!!!!

Just did some blind interval skipping. Just eyes shut, I have to open them a little every now and again to check where I am - I catch my rope on a matt.
I also did this barefoot! Well... I wore socks, because that rope hurts so much when it hits!!! I did get a slap around the back of the head when the rope touched the door behind me too, OUCH!
15 rounds of 10/40s
87-94-78-87-79-77-80-78-78-82-83-82-83-8
9-86
=1,243

I alternated each interval between double foot regular jump and high knee jumps.

BALANCE = 3,700 - 1,243

= 2,457

I started! I sway a lot too and have to peak every now and again to get myself back on track. I don't have a small enough mat to use as guidance just yet.
I did this tonight.
50 x blind jumps (2 feet regular jump)
50 x left eye shut, right leg jumps
50 x right eye shut, left leg jumps
50 x blind jumps regular
50 x blind jumps regular
50 x blind high knee jumps --- much harder and so much more travel haha... more practice with these!

Total = 300.

BALANCE - 4000 - 300

So, any idea how to remove the dizziness? If I close both eyes, I feel like a drunk, my direction will be sway from side to side LOL But closing one eye is better, less feeling dizzy.

6.8.2013: 10.6 minutes blind jump ropes (both eyes)

I did something that help not to swerve and that is I kept something on the floor as guide, (the tip of the rug). When am no more feeling it I know am swaying forward, when am too much on the rug I know ave swayed backwards, I also kept paper bags by each side so that I know when am swaying to the left or right.

It made it easier, exciting and awesome this evening.

Yeah, the % seems to help to know where you are and bt the end month, see how much you have jumped towards your goal :D

I hope you will get prize for june so a smaller goal should be achievable :D

And thanks, I can't believe that I can blind jump that fast and no tripping :D

I am in, FATHINSN. Thanks for the summary of the jumps in June, I did not believe I did half of the goals 54% is good.

Meanwhile this month, I think I better set a smaller goal so that I should outdo it and still win a gift, lol. I am always proud when I meet my goals.

So I go in for the 30 mins blind jumps in June.

I can see that you jump real fast, 300 jumps in 3 mins! That is awesome.

Sadly, I no longer have access to the big and empty room at my gym. That is where I did all my blind rope jumping in the past. What I have continued to do in small confines of another area at my gym is the 60x JR + 3 pushup burpees. I LOVE this mix. I don't know what I'll do for a JR goal yet. I won't be joining you in blind jumping although I would very much like to. It's amazing, at first I would get very dizzy. By the end of the month, not at all. At first, I 'traveled' around the room quite a lot. By the end of the month, I 'traveled' much less. I would very much like to do some blind rope jumping again but it isn't looking possible. Sigh.

My goal is 2000x blind jumps plus 2000x not blind jumps :D

06-01 = 300x blind jumps in 3 minutes.
Total = 300x blind jumps, 0x not blind jumps; balance = 1700x blind jumps, 2000x not blind jumps.

The first 200x, I alternate closed one eye then the rest of jumps, I closed both eyes. A bit dizzy when I closed both eyes, I somehow moved to one side LOL

Inspired by our team members (you know who you are!), June 2013 is all about closing your eyes and let's other senses guide you when you jump rope!

The challenge:
Close one or both eyes, either you can just use the natural way (use your eyelids) or put a blindfolds, and aim the maximum total for either total jumps or total minutes!
Harder = close one eye and jump only with the opposite leg (which means the leg with the same side with the eye keep off the ground all time).

Try to do at least 2000x jumps or 30 minutes for June 2013!

What's your blind jump goal, post it here!
