Jump Rope Rack #Fitness

This month is not as active as April when it comes to my fitness routine.  I slowed down from running and using the Bowflex Max Trainer 2 because my left  lower leg was so painful.  I am not sure what hurt it, its either my 2 10ks that I did or the constant use of the MT2 programs.  I am just slowly getting back to it now because  I don't want to  have a painful leg or knee again.  
Anyway, I got this stainless steel 5 hook rack from Cavetools.  I was gonna use it for my husband;'s tool in the garage but decided to use it in our gym to hang our  jump ropes.  This rack is multipurpose, you can use it in the kitchen for your kitchen wares and other BBQ tools, for your bathroom, or anywhere that you need a sturdy rack for stuff.  
 I love that it comes with all the hardware that it needs to install it.  Installation is not  hard, I did it myself, which I always ask my husband to do it when it involves some drilling and stuff like that.  This one, I didn't need his help, I was  proud  to do it myself lol.
I love the screwdriver that comes with it because  you can either use it as a flat tip or slot head and philips head.  All you need to do is insert it in the handle and voila, you have a heavy duty screwdriver.  
You can buy this multi purpose hook rack via amazon or the link I provided above.  You can use this coupon code HOOKRACK15 for 15% off upon check out.
As I have mentioned above, April was my super active month.  I did my first 10k Run on the treadmill (I haven't tried  joining any race).  This way, I am only  racing with myself so I can stop anytime or  speed up, it is up to my brain what it tells me lol.  
My 2nd 10k Run was also in April, this one is a lot better.  I improved my calorie burned and also  shorten the time that I spent  during my first time.
I was trying to  change up my routine a little bit so I stop running and tried to use the Max Trainer.  I think I used it three days in a row, which was a big mistake because after that, my leg was hurting so bad.
I was happy with the result of my workouts though.  I can actually fit into the dress that I tucked away a couple of years ago because my tummy was bulging everytime I wear it. Now I can confidently wear it without sucking in my stomach ha ha ha.
I am slowly testing my leg  now and it still hurts a little bit but not as much.  I am taking it  slow and light this time, no more pushing too hard.  I gotta say though, it's awesome to push yourself, you get to learn that you can do better than what you think.  You also  learn your limits.  No matter what, just keep moving, do not give up.  Below is a video of my favorite jump rope exercise.

  2. That is a lot of different jump ropes. I can see why you need storage and someplace so they don't get tangled up. Easy project.
