Hi sha~sha,

If you could do 30 minutes of jumprope you would be getting an excellent cardio session in. Most people CAN'T do 30 minutes without stopping at least once.

You say you can do 300 without stopping. What does that take you....about 4 minutes or less.....depending on how fast you jump? What you could do is jump for as long as you can....then take a break to get your breath.....then start again before your heartbeat drops below your target level.
