# 7 balls, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, #endupatt, #otu, 9 balls flashing, 156 minutes

(m.)
9b flashing - 30 min.   Five times 7 gathers.
7b casc - 126 min.   43 cl, 43, 51, 47, 48, 55, 45, 51, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]
#SoL #technique - Tried to do "Rather too far behind, then ahead!" and standing right under the pattern, also putting back the head more into the neck (looking upwards in a steeper angle), all of which made me do that tiny and constantly stepping backwards as sometimes seen in long numbers runs. But most importantly doing like that gave very easy juggling, yet no result corresponding to that felt improvement.
.. in between, tried [ #otu ] stick balancing during a minute or two. The impression of balancing my 7b patterns, when standing right under them, made me do this (stick and 7b pattern would then correspond, be parallel or so, I fancied). Tried on forehead, chin, but nose seemed best, but I didn't get it very well, so it would need an own stint.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 80 minutes

I have a cold so I took it easy today.

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
534534 and back to fountain

3 clubs:
423 (double, thumb roll, backcross)
Multiplex practice, I think I'll try to learn the pattern that P showed me last time. It is a 4c pattern but I mostly practiced with 3.

# passing, 60 minutes

(With P)
3-count with tricks
pssps with some early doubles
ppsps, also with some early doubles
75666
4p 2 3 3 3, P also turned around throwing a pass or two as a dropback. I tried passing that way too, but didn't get to a point where it was any idea trying to switch between that and normal face to face.
ppf
ppppz
7c 1-count

(With A)
4-count
3-count

S didn't show up today. Too bad... P would have liked to continue with the 3-count with double passes and walking pattern that we tried last time.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 175 minutes

9b flashing - 70 min.   Five times 8 gathers! (yet, all to the point, so nowhere near 9 c today)   Several rethrows, best was 15 (17?) throws (to collapse).   Working on getting (more) launches ``all of a piece´´.
7b casc - 105 min.   49, 49 cl, 46, 49, 59, 43, 65, 47, 46 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 65 ]

# Performance Prep, Mini session, 40 minutes

Finally got over my mental barrier for 7b! Before, I couldn't get much over 100 (full stop at 121). Today, I got over 150 catches three times! Take that, brain!

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 229 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 18 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 7 min.   55 throws wristy 6-high to collision.   225 t 5-high.
9b flashing - 47 min.   Two times 8 gathers, plus one ``almost´´ with three or four rebounds before drop into 7 g.   Another 9 c in reach: should really have gotten it, but the last ball miraculously fell right through the space occupied by catchhand (i suspect a wormhole or higher mights or lifeforms beyond human perception and awareness teasing me, you know).   One or two attempts on unreasonable hasted rethrows.
7b casc - 157 min.   50, 61, 45, 47, 54, 45, 51, 53 throws longest runs. Best clean was 41 c cl.   [ daily7b II: 61 ]

# 4 clubs, 3 clubs, 45 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
534534 and back to fountain
four times 534 and back to fountain, got it once.
Sync fountain

3 clubs or 2 clubs:
Some easy juggling
Trying some multiplex throws. P helped giving tips on how to juggle 4 clubs with multiplexes, didn't really try it but will probably do that another time.

# passing, 75 minutes

(With P, who is visiting Stockholm)
3-count with tricks. Tried switching to 2-count (slow/fast pattern, one of us kept doing regular 3-count, P showed me how to do it) I did the "steal a club and juggle 4 until the next pass beat".
5-count popcorn, mostly with heffs, also did triple single but my triples are usually not very good. P did some more variations.
Practicing zaps, first with 1-3 clubs.
zap zap zip
75666 (pass self self zap self)
zaps ultimates (5)

(With P and S)
Civil War feed with walking. Made it so that feedees got the 4-count on the right side, so we could walk easier.
3-count on doubles, but with only 9 clubs in total, walking when you get 2 clubs (so, doing 3 passes in each position). Some kind of 3-jugglers version of the "shooting star" on doubles that we often do when we are 4 jugglers. Took us a while before we got a full round. Also tried something similar on 4-count with crossing passes, didn't spend enough time on that one for me to understand exactly how it worked.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 247 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 20 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min. 95 throws wristy 6-high to collision. 209 t 5-high to collision.
9b flashing - 65 min. Two times 8 gathers. Again, theoretically 9 c in reach: time plenty after spotting around 3(?) last balls, but had bodycaught already and inevitably leaving bodycatches only, for those incoming last balls (ended 6 gathers). No rethrows. (m.)
7b casc - 142 min. 47, 47, 47, 51, 53, 49, 45, 45, 43 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 53 ]
5b fastest - 10 min. Good runs, speedy, low, but no very long runs.

# 3 balls, 3 clubs, teaching, 20 minutes

Arrived a little bit late to circus practise. Found the other participants waiting outside of the hall. Apparently someone had forgotten to unlock the door for us.

Well, I was not that motivated to do outdoor juggling, just did some easy stuff. Then asked if anyone wanted to juggle with me and got two girls who wanted to learn juggling (they couldn't practise their usual stuff like silks and stuff outdoors...). They got the 2 ball exchange after a while and did a few attempts at a 3 ball flash, at least they managed to throw the 3 balls but without catching them. I hope they will give it some more time.

(Logged time is approximate juggling time, I was there for about 1 hour, outside of the gym...)

# 7 balls, #focus, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 208 minutes

( after two partly chilly, down to 15°C and below, rainy days, now near perfect again and more warm & dry & sunny days ahead )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 12 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Around 100 throws wristy 6-high.
9b flashing - 63 min.   One million times 7 gathers.   Two times 8 g.   11 throws into 7 gathers. 13 throws. (only rethrow attempts, i think)
  #SoL #technique - new little insight / tuning:   It struck me towards end of stint, that in the past I have been throwing the first two throws to abrupt, with abrupt movement up as if i were throwing from loose wrist, which doesn't make sense for the first ball from stronghand - a fifth ball on top of diamond gripped four others (and weakhand then following with its first launched fourth ball on the index where it would make sense to try wristy already, but so far, I let it ``follow´´). I am doing them a bit slowlier in any case, but somehow, I managed to even then do them in an abrupt way.   If I do those two throws softer and explicitly get their thrust from forearms almost only, I should get more control over my launches becoming well structured (upto now, I wasn't sure, what exactly makes me sometimes get it well, sometimes bad). Gotta try like that again and track this.
7b casc - 128 min.   44, 43 cl, 43 cl, 44, 53, 53, 45, 49 cl, 55, 66, 53 throws longest runs. Pretty great yield, but I wasn't satisfied, for example, I lost several good runs on ~35 throws' mental (or whatever physiological) barrier, and also did tensed a lot and didn't easily get or stay in snapped-in patterns; no question of ``settling´´ in good patterns, which is my next step & level. Nonetheless, happy with a good yield of course.   [ daily7b II: 66 ]
  Also here, found yet a new aspect, "issue" even: #SoL #focus #endupatt - I am often focussing on stronghands' balls up for orientation, while I should rather partage my attention equally on any / both hands' last balls up. It's surely a result of my alltime stronghand \ weakhand asymmetry that never bothered me, but the issue is one of focus mainly. [Note to self:] Also work on, work with, and track this!
5b fastest - 5 min.   (no long runs)

# 5 balls, 10 minutes

Flash. Took me 5 minutes to get 10 successful attempts (with fails between them)

Then tried 6 catches for 5 minutes (instead of just until I got it once). Got it 3 times, though the first of them was bad with the last two throws caught more or less at the same time and at least one of them hitting the ceiling

Common problems: Strange rhythm (usually not throwing fast enough), balls colliding, throws too high (hitting the ceiling), throws too much forward

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 208 minutes

5b 56752 - 25 min.   Hardly over 6 sides, but one 9th side into 10th collapsing.
[ short rainbreak 5' ]
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 18 min.
[ break - tried to roughly dry the grass with a towel attached to a long branch 15' ]
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   161 c cl wristy 6-high.   119 throws into collision 5-high.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Many 7 gathers.   Two 8 g.   No rethrows.
7b casc - 53 min.   49, 43, 47, 51, 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
[ next rainbreak 15' ] meadow was soakin' wet now and wiping off every dropped ball wasn't really "practise" ..
7b casc - 5 min. trying to not drop at all gave 7-11 throws  a n d  drops. Very bad.
.. so I rather did where I can expect fewest drops:
5b endure - 30 min.   359 throws.
more 7b casc - 17 min.   (no long runs)

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, #ballproperties, 192 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Short run 7-high.   Longer run wristy 5-to-6-high.
9b flashing - 45 min.   About ten times 7 gathers. One 8 g. No rethrows iirc.   #ballproperties - Balls felt too big and bouncy, not so squishy, and had several ringfingerballslips at launch; presuming they had blown up from cold to warm, I left some air out and indeed a bit whizzed out, but it wasn't much better.   Okay stint, though, structured promising patterns, little spread (smaller radius - used to pick up drops upto one and half yard away - now often they drop right near me or just a step away).
7b casc - 127 min.   Meager yield: 44 cl, 61, [short break 8'], 43 throws longest runs; felt much better 'n that. Hadn't done speedy enough yesterday I now realized. "Nimble" wouldn't get an also comfortable, smooth pattern if not paired with speediness  ( of throwing movement, dwelltime, handspeed, that is, ((not of tact, beat cadence)) ).  Same with "swift" or anything, ratios an' all, done right - without a certain speediness it'll be tensed or doing `behind´ the pattern's speed.   After break had completely lost ratio, pattern, swiftness and it stayed like that. Better again tomorrow!  [ daily7b II: 61 ]

(With S)
7c 1-count
Techno
7c 2-count doubles, S also threw early triples and late triples
7c 4-count triples was too difficult
8c 2-count doubles, difficult. Did 5 passes before dropping sometimes, not sure if we got more than that.

Short warm up

3 clubs:
45123

4 clubs:
4c fountain, doubles

Sync fountain, needs more practise
Transition from async fountain to sync fountain (by throwing a triple). Got it 3 times with at least 4 pairs of doubles caught after the transition, but never got to a nice sync pattern.
Transition from sync fountain to async fountain (by throwing a triple with the right hand and double with the left), didn't get it, but a few attempts were close (meaning: at least I caught and re-threw the double and the triple before dropping anything). Common problems: Triple too low, triple underspun, double too high

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 1 min.   149 throws run 5-high.
9b flashing - 65 min.   Over 20 times 7 gathers. No 8 g (?!), and only two or three 8 g in reach. Maybe 9 c in reach, but spotted late and last balls came fast. Two or three launches with not so reasonable rethrows.
7b casc - 137 min.   Mediocre yield: 57, 47, 47, 43 throws longest runs, and corresponding performance: got it well only shortly, but mostly struggling to get it comfortably snapped-in.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 193 minutes

5b casc warmup - 12 min.   That 555..55f..f00..-thing needs fast ``explosive´´ full-thrust throws (partly with hopping) - nothing like healthy and it doesn't really make a lot of sense either.   Very high.   Fastest.   Wristy 5-high.
9b flashing - 47 min.   Around twelve times 7 gathers. Three times 8 g. And around five times 13-14 throws. One 9 in reach, time plenty since spotting last ball, but didn't find a nest for it in my full hands and still fumblin' last catch so it bounced off. Felt like "gotten", though.
7b casc - 129 min.   47, 45, 45, 45, 59, 45, 57, 55, 57, 45, 47, 63 throws longest runs. Good. Continue like that!   [ daily7b II: 63 ]
