Getting aggressive with the double unders..LOL....

Through kindness, the world softens. Be kind to all beings and things, in this way, creation returns to it's natural state of beauty.

Good luck! I hope you don't get too much snow - I had a surprise 6 inches of snow in Desolation Wilderness last weekend :)

That sounds like a super scenic run and you so destroyed my Annie time. Double Unders are the bane of my Crossfit existence second only to Thrusters.

That run sounds amazing! And through the night? Epic! I'm inspired your dedication and work ethic. You help drive me to find something I love that much, and to place my heart and soul in it. Great to have you around lately girl. Be good!

Hey there, I haven't stopped by in a while so I had some catching up to do. I'm sorry about the breakup. Good luck on your run!

I hope there's no snow. Might be a little from last week.

Hey Darcy-
I was only able to do two double unders at a time. I should note I did count my failed attempts. Or else it would of been more like 4 hours ;) I need to get to the point where I can rx everything. Working my way up to that point.

Have a great run Catra! Looking forward to seeing your photos. I can't wait to get back out to Yosemite in the spring.

Yosemite is such a beautiful, healing place. You're so lucky to be able to enjoy it as often as you do! Hope you have a great run!

When I do Double Unders it's jump, jump, double under, repeat. I'm sure I jump that rope 100 times to get 20. Sounds like we are at about the same level. My coach doesn't let us count failed attempts so I curse a lot when I miss one :)

Catra said...

Hey Darcy-
That's the only way I can do it too. I count 2 then jump. I was getting good six months back. Now I have to practice. Carl thinks my form is shit so need to work on it with him.
