I set out to have an hour long session. I’ve been tense and stressed as hell. No reason really, hormonal…just hurting…maybe it’s early onset of menopause.
It was 830 before I got started and I took my very tired toddler outdoors with me to keep him out of trouble.
I hooped in the sand pit. Baby boy played with the hose and then moved to the swing.
I put it on shuffle and left it to fate. I don’t normally do that.
Started with the biggest hoop and on down until I got to my normal one. I wanted to spend a good few songs with the big hoop hoping to get more core work in. (I’m huge right now).
Fast and slow, playing with different styles and trying to really be in tune with the music. This is my favorite way to hoop…playing and moving freely.
30 minutes in, baby boy wants to go in and go night night. I let him in then went back to it.
Bach cello suites on my ipod, oh dear, how to hoop to this? I started stretching with the hoop. oooh my goodness. I put the hoop down and stretched and stretched and breathed.
At the end of the stretching I did a whole bunch of chest and back rolls until they felt really smooth. I then tried them in the opposite direction which I never do. Sloppy but I was still proud for having tried.
One more song…Adele, “that’s it, I quit, I’m movin’ on” then into the house.
