2,344...

...is the number of jumps I completed while jumproping today.

I needed to shake up the workout regimine a little bit and i have a semi-busy day ahead of me (but i still have time to blog, of course); so i couldn't take a ton of time out to go running mid-day (and, when running with leah mid-day, it takes a lot of time out...promise). So, i decided to jump rope outside of her bedroom window during her morning nap. i set my stop watch (yes, julia, i got a stop watch!!) to 30 minutes and off i went.

Can i just say that jumping rope as a 26 year old is much harder than jumping rope as a 6 year old? I was the third grade champion for those jump-a-thon things when i was little and don't remember sweating or being tired at all. not the case today.

I did go 412 jumps without messing up, though. yay. and now leah's awake. perfect timing.

30 minutes??? Could you even walk after? I did about 5 minutes a couple months ago and my calves screamed at me for days!! You're awesome.
