Question: Were You Ever Good at Jump-Rope?

I really liked jump rope when I was a kid. I was decent at it, but never could do anything fancy which mainly involved using two/three ropes or a group effort. 

Did you like jump rope?

My warm-up and cool-down involves jump roping, but I live in a small house, so the jump rope I use is more of the invisible kind. Even so, I would not say that I'm very good at it.

It's hard remembering that far back but I doubt I was any good at it.

Oh yes, I loved to jump rope. Used to jump rope to all those silly little songs. : )
Love double Dutch too where you jump with two ropes. Boy this sure brings back memories.

When I was a girl in the 1960s, skipping was a major activity for girls, using both individual ropes and a long rope. Doing double dutch was too hard for me though. Like Happyone, I loved all those goofy skipping verses too. Wish I could remember them now! All I can remember is: "so-and-so and so-and-so / sittin' in a tree / K-I-S-S-I-N-G!"

I did like jump rope a lot, I was 'decent' as you said, nothing fancy.

Only if I was holding both ends of the rope and going at my own pace.

I was the queen of jump rope AND double-dutch! Although I was a little scared of jumping in first. Hahah

I liked jump rope and the songs we used to sing along. I was okay at it.

I was just ok. Never did get the hang of double dutch though.

Jumping rope was one of the most fun things when I was a little girl...that and sidewalk skating.
