Well well well... I have been looking all over for you for months and you have been nowhere to be found. Welcome back double unders!
I was finally able to work my way out of my mood by end of day on Monday... if the 75 degree Monday in March wasnt enough, the ride home from my afternoon meeting with the windows down and my radio blaring certainly was. Sometimes you just need that release.
This morning the WOD was a great continuation of that. I was able to clean and do walking lunges with minimal pain in my hip. This is good news... I have ben babying in trying to get back to 100% in case there are any type of squats in the Open WOD this weekend. Still have a twinge when I move the wrong way or try to lift my leg to the side... but its getting better! Remember that whole "patience" thing that I said I lacked... here it is in full force.
Anyway... After the WOD (which I loved) was complete the skill was double unders. I knew, just like the toes to bar and pullps that somewhere in the Open WODs we would see double unders so I have been working on them a lot. I have the whole "double single double single" thing down pat... but once I try to link the doubles together I trip up. I dont know what happened... I had them a few months ago.
All I can picture is the part in the movie Mary Poppins when they show the weathervane on the cupola change from one direction to the other... all of a sudden today it just clicked. I was stringing them together and double under-ing (is that a word) away!!
For all the aggravation... for all the missed double unders, all the trip ups, all the different length jump ropes, all the new jump ropes... I was FINALLY able to get them! Never ever ever ever give up!!
Heres hoping they stick!
