Today was the CrossRope JRPC Event 4: 500 Single Under jumps with a 2 pound rope. I was all excited for this challenge until today when the hours flew past and it was actually time to go to the box to get it done.
The battle for my workout mind took place between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. The subliminal whining began at 5 p.m. and never let up until I was down to the last 150 jumps. Well, maybe that was the last 120 jumps. It took me thirty minutes just sitting around to get to my rowing warm-up, and I love to row, normally.
But not today.
Actually it was not until the last 60 jumps that I finally felt my heart and mind align for a moment, just to hear, then believe, that I could push through to the end with gusto!
Thanks be to Heavenly Father for hearing my prayer to help me focus and not quit. It was His spirit touching my heart to move forward with that wonderful push through at the end.
