Steve: what is important is that you did something.. i tell you that jumping rope for 50 min can be brutal !! great job on the DU.. I still have yet to string 2!! :)
Hope you are feeling back to your "ol' self" soon!:highfive:

[quote=Aushion Chatman;751997]Glad to hear you can get back on it Steve...now GET ON IT!![/quote]

Thank you, Aush! This cold seems to be trying to hang on like a kitten on a new set of drapes.......but it feels wonderful (until I end up hacking like an old chain smoker) to be getting back into it!

Thanks ET and Marianne! The jump rope work was both fun........and frustrating. Getting the timing, the actual "jump" technique, and movement of the wrists down are simply crazy concepts I just can't seem to master.......yet. Probably just like my kipping, it'll just click someday soon. While I am at times a klutz, I still am reasonably coordinated (or at least I thought I was).

BTW, I didn't know a person could experience DOMS from jumping rope. OUCH! Calves, hammies, and insides of my elbows were NOT happy with me today. Throw in the thrusters and SDHPs we did for our WOD today and my whole body is rebelling.....

[/B][I]Glad I scaled this one back a bit. Legs felt like rubber and didn't want to work when I tried to run......Really glad I pushed through this WOD. It was fun in a perverse (yay, CF) sort of way and will be fun to do again when I'm back up to snuff.[/I]

That is a nasty looking WOD! I love (hate) couplets broken up with running/rowing. They are a special kind of evil.

Welcome back!

Hey Steve! Sucks to see your still fighting off DOMS, but Annie has always been one of my favorite WODs to looosen up all that tightness.

And that thruster/SDHP madness with the sprinting sounds fun....as in evil fun. ;)

Dave,

Annie is one of my faves also - - If I ever get the DUs down, I'll be able knock it out in short order.

You would think I'd have learned in a year of CF not to [U][B]ever[/B][/U] do 50 minutes (even with breaks) of jump rope work the day before a Thruster/SDHP WOD! :rofl::rofl:

Forgot to mention we did a quick Tabata (Mountain Climbers) after the WOD today. My score: 11 (legs kept trying to cramp)
