hmmm, I did 1 hr of skipping in the new shed today (the weather is really cruddy) and am sooo stuffed. I was very wet with sweat puffing and I'm all shaky now. It definitely feels like twice the intensity of cycling, at least. But I had some extended skipping periods hen I got into he groove with some musing thumping.
it's been so long since I did something new exercise wise. My legs are so tight and crampy I kept having to stretch them out, particularly the calves (though I expected that from the cycling - it shortens the calf muscles making running more difficult).
The cute thing was the neighbours over the back fence had their little grandchild (I think) there and he was waving to me through the window, so everytime I stuffed up with the rope I waved back. What a cutie, he was very entertained.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
