The workout was not that difficult. I chose to do the baby WoD, the Beginner WoD.
I felt like a baby elephant doing the baby elephant WoD.
Could have challenged myself by doing the advanced WoD but no.
Oh well. I am started and I will keep going because it will get harder, no doubt.
Love those CrossRope.com guys and the ZenDudeFitness.com guys.
Thirty days of fitness. Thirty days.

Listening to Diamond and Silk on Facebook Live talking about a lot of different things. Love those Ladies. They preach it and teach it and they live it. They are all about having the conversation. Catch them on Facebook and Twitter and everywhere! Be sure to check out their merchandise too.
Great news about the fence, icymi the before story:
Take a look at the after story as of today, thank you Officer Bret for finding the right fencing team for our adjoining fences! You are the best neighbor!
Excellent work by Professional Grade Fence on a very hot day!
Getting excited for the new CrossRope #ZenDudeFitness Challenge. You can join me and my Guns Out CrossFit teammate, Lance Winstein, by signing up here and tagging me or Lance with #TeamBooGah #GunsOutCrossFit in the CrossRope Jump Rope Community page on Facebook. All you need is a JUMP ROPE!
And yes, I love CrossRope. I love their jumping program so much that I joined the ZDF just so I could order smaller sized ropes with ZDF colored handles. By the way, my jump roping is just about as good as my CrossFit but at least I am still working at it.
Another tidbit of good news. My niece was crowned a runner up for Ms. Veteran America 2017.
And that is it for today. Pip-pip. Cheerio!
Oh my gosh. Years ago, like way more than twenty, I could jump rope fairly well. I could one foot, two foot, run up and downhill while jumping, criss-cross, boxer step, and alternate feet jumping, heel touch, jack jump, and sissor jump too. Now, I am happy to just keep the rope turning after years of inactivity.
In 2014, when I started at 26.2 CrossFit, jumping rope well again became my goal. Here I am four years later and I still stink at it, in my mind. What is worse is I still have never done a proper double under. Honestly, I am happy if I can string 30 consecutive jumps together with a speed rope. Granted, I had three, yes 1 – 2 – 3, foot injuries this year so that has slowed my progress down but that is no excuse.
This year I discovered CrossRope. Picking up the Limited Edition Heavy Set and falling in love with it (having not yet jumped with Brunhilda – rolling my eyes) I ordered the complete serious of ropes with an extra set of handles. And finally, over all of my injuries, I have made it through this, my first Jump Rope Performance Challenge, except for….
Tomorrow’s dreaded double under event. And with a one pound rope!
I will work to get that double under tomorrow. Yes. YES I WILL!
Even if my max is one, at least I will be done. I will never quit. I will do my very best at Guns Out CrossFit.
