Gosh, I was planning on being really good and start a 'skipping' workout, which consists of a minutes jogging and stretches to warm up.

And then varying your skipping: speeds, style, enthusiasm etc. 20 mins in total.

Well, I gave it a go this morning, I could only manage 4 mins before completely sending my heart rate through the roof. How shameful.

Should I just build up gradually? I'm planning on doing another 5 mins later, but I'm just so unfit at the moment, I felt like my heart was gonna fall out..:eek:

I find skipping really hard, 20 mins is a bit ambitious. How about breaking it down into 4 sessions of 5 mins if you can manage it. If you can't I'd go for 4 min sessions and then gradually add on 30 secs-1 min each time.

skipping is a best exercise.It is also a very interesting game.Where one or more persons can jump in one rope.It is a indoor and outdoor activity.You no need to go to playground and also no need partner.I can at least 500 jumps at one time.
skipping is great exercise. I would suggest you take it easy hun and build up slowly. If you do too much at first you will suffer and need to take a few days off so it pays to be sensible. Also remember to stretch to avoid pulled muscles :)
