The problem I'm having is that I've been jumping rope for about 3 weeks now, since I just started jumping I'm taking it slow and then working up to jumping for longer intervals. Right now I jump for 1/2 hour every day and I jump for 35 seconds take a break for 1 min and 55 secs and then jump for 35 secs and I do this for 1/2 hr. Slowly I 'm going to increase the jumping time and decrease the resting time until I can jump for 1/2 hour straight. Now, my problem is that my shins, the bone that runs down from the front of my knee to the front of my ankle, have been so sore. I stretch (especially my legs) before and after but the bone hurts, it's sore. Is this normal? I used to run but cause of winter I stay inside but running didn't ever hurt like that. I mean i'm not hurling over in pain or anything but if i touch the bone it's sore. Do u think the jumping is causing this? Does this happen to anyone else? Can I do something about it.
Thanks in advance
