It’s so snowy here, it makes me crazy. Snow is stupid. It’s slushy, it’s everywhere, it’s cold, it melts on you and makes you wet and cold.. and driving in it blows. This is probably the worst winter we’ve had in as long as I can remember… I don’t EVER remember it snowing THIS MUCH!!!!!!
I had absolutely no motivation to workout today, but obviously I did. Because I ate half a pan of bacon wrapped dates that I made last night… hehe 😀

SKILL: DOUBLE UNDERS.
Since the competition, I’ve been doing millions of double unders and trying to figure out what went wrong. And, I figured it out. I always relied on the sound of the rope hitting the floor to dictate when I would jump and when I would snap my wrists… and at what pace. Well, at the competition, with the sound of 10 other ropes next to me AND music blasting, I completely lost my rhythm. it had nothing to do with muscle fatigue, because I’ve practiced doing TONS upon TONS of double unders when I’m absolutely exhausted. So, today, I put the music so loud to the point that I couldn’t hear my jump rope… and I was in a little studio area with 4 or 5 other people. Who were making their own noises. I also used to stare straight ahead when I did dubs; today I looked not straight down at my feet, but in that general area so that my hands moving and the rope hitting the ground was in my field of vision. They surprisingly went really well…. I felt fast and smooth and in all of my 5 or 6 sets, I went unbroken for all 50+ reps.
