sso back in july/august i began doing jump roping before my workouts as a warmup and a bit after for some conditioning. i really enjoyed it, and thlught i was progressing quite nicely. each week i added 50-100 jumps, starting with 100 a day the first week for 4-5 days a week, and every 2 weeks i dropped back 100 jumps. so my weeks went something like this…100/200/250/200/300/400/250/450/500/550/400.
it was around this 11-12th week that i noticed i had a good deal of burning sensation in my feet, and it felt worst upon waking in the morning in my heels. i could still lift but jump roping had to be put to the side. well fast forward til today (4 months later) and i still feel it somewhat upon waking and dont feel confident in doing any conditioning besides some sled walks.
i know its plantar fasciitis, im just baffled by how sudden it came on and how it just does not go away. i think if i had kept this to hill sprints and box jumps it wouldnt have happened, i think the constant jumps were just too much for my feet to handle. anyways, just a thought for those considering doing jump ropes.
