My new best friend !
Tuesday, July 14, 2009
My new best friend is really skinny, and about 8ft tall...well, I guess I mean long really.
Whilst looking for my shoes in the garage I came across a skipping rope that had long been abandoned because it is miles too long for me to use. Oh, but not today...pliers? check! knife to get the handle end off? check!
I had a vague memory about having it long enough that your arms will be perpendicular when both feet are on it...so that's what I went for.
BF finished the putting back together as I could not get the metal ring back on the rope, and I beamed a big smile when he handed it back. I tried it, it perfect!
So, Ropey and me will be sharing the next few weeks at least, at it has to be THE MOST PORTABLE item of fitness equipment.
Turns out, SP has a 10-min workout video and also an article giving you workout plans...once again SP delivers!
I am still pondering over the travel plans..I am starting to get mildly panicky that I will be flying solo for the next 2 weeks...but I will try my best to plan!
