Carry that weight
First problem: I didn't have one of the joints in just right, so the hoop flew apart while I was twirling to Gloria Estefan. Beer coasters and flamingo parts flew everywhere, but no one got hurt, and after I did properly assemble my hoop, I realized that I could actually turn the beat around and go in the opposite direction!
The added weight of these hoops makes it easier to keep them going, so that I can easily hoop for a solid half-hour.
Second problem: I'm sore and slightly bruised on one hip. I googled this problem as I do all my others, so now I know that lots of people have this reaction, and that what I need to do now is to wait until I'm no longer sore to hoop again. People gradually toughen up and it stops bothering them. Hooping is addictive, so I'm a bit impatient. And maybe I should learn to twirl somewhat above my right hip....
