I feel you! Those damn speed ropes with leave some nice welts. The first few days I was hitting myself in the shins so much I was bleeding.

If you're still learning I would stay away from the speed ropes until you find your rythm. I used a heavier rope until I figured out a good rythm. Plus a thicker rope is easier to see and believe it or not it helps with timing when you can see the rope coming around. Also a heavier rope doesnt need to be spun as fast to keep its form. You have to spin the speed ropes pretty fast to keep them from collapsing.
