So today when I was hooping with Andrea and the neighbor kids. We had on one of my favorite CD’s, Harem 2. I started with 3 medium bodyhoops. I usually start with two, but being with Andrea I had access to a third. It was hard… I loved it.
I can only keep 3 going for a brief time, and when they fell I did my off direction. Yikes! I didn’t make it through the first tune before I lost it on both sides. So I went down to 2.
It was then that I flashed that not so long ago, I couldn’t keep two going my “good” direction. And now I can. And I do for a good while say, ½ a tune, then switch to my off side, or out flow as some call it.
Then I hooped with just one. It’s like a walk in the park with a friend. Well, till the music gets hopping and I rock out. But in fact I can keep my medium hoop up at almost any tempo now. And that feels good.
I am grateful for Hooping.org for posting about the 30 minutes for 30 day in January. I was very random in my hooping till then. Now I rarely go a day without.
This is at a Castro Vally Hoop-Jam. I had every medium hoop there, and kept them going for about 8 revolutions.
Can’t wait for 6 hoops to be easy. *:)
