Broken rope and #Growyourown

  • Apr 5th, 2016 at 4:58AM


My skipping rope broke!! No fear, I wasn't feeling the skipping today anyway and have a new one arriving tomorrow morning. I went for a 50 minute run instead and it was so beautiful in the countryside. I felt so tired and lethargic all day today but decided to pull it together and get the bod moving. I then ended up doing a 2.5 hour workout and am now feeling physically tired, mentally merry and generally very zen.

I have also started to grow my own coriander and chilli, as my boyfriend and I cook with both, every day. I bought mini foil packs of the soil ready mixed with the seeds in packets, inside. All I had to do was bury the seeds and water them. Tadaaaaaa. I'm still waiting on the chilli but I've been told they take slightly longer..... I may have over watered them though.

Great work pivoting to the alternate cardio, Tam! What rope did you snag for your replacement?

Nothing beats home-grown herbs!

    Did your rope break from wear and tear? This should be celebrated! It's a symbol of all your hard work. Put up a pic.

    I've been telling myself for a year that I'm going to grow my own herbs. I hate that I buy them and then use 1/5th and the rest ends up going bad. You've inspired me to go to the damn nursery and buy some. Are plant stores called nurseries in the UK as well?

        I am loving the running at the moment. Went on another hour long run last night and it was amazing. Back to the skipping today though as it's raining and I have terrible blisters!

        Brett- I've got quite a cheap rope from amazon but with wider handles as I started getting cramp from my small handles!

        Ed- I threw the rope away but I don't feel like it's such an achievement as I had the rope for a couple of years, so it was about bloody time it broke! It also cut£1.99 so it's done really well. And yes they do call them nurseries i think! It's quite liberating and very satisfying when they start to grow.

        Jess- I agree, mine do look much better than yours, don't they? Better luck next time love!
