So, the jump rope thing...
I really like jumping rope.
It doesn't hurt when I do it. It doesn't even hurt later that day.
But the next day and night I feel like someone used my rib cage for a punching bag. I'm guessing it's because when I jump, there's more movement of body than would be on the average person.
I'll just let that image sink into your brain.
So last night, when I could barely breathe, I decided to try something new. Usually, I take about 3-5 days to recover, but I decided to get back on the horse.
I got out my jump rope again.
This time, I was wearing my Spanx. (lovingly known as my science fiction magic pants....)
And it DIDN'T HURT!!
(until I crawled into bed.)
