# 3-8 balls, 3-5 rings, 3-5 clubs, balance, headbounce, 120 minutes

Mixed Session. Started well and generally went downhill.

Did achieve a couple of things I've not done before:
2 consecutive rh backcrosses from 5 clubs back to pattern and 4 single backcrosses in 1 run
3 ball high low shower with passes behind the back, to and from shower with same throws
5c plus balance 9 catches (dropped last throw of attempted collect). Had a few runs that were longer in terms of throws but ended in dropping balance and/or everything else. First time it's felt semi-runnable though.

Something new I want to work on at home - was attempting to get a chin balance flipped up into a fat end forehead balance. Got close a couple of times having never tried it previously. Would love to get this with a juggle underneath. Long way to go though...

Finished with a few games of gladiators, at which I was destroyed by Brook. Need to seriously improve my technique.

Total practice time: 120 minutes

# 3-5 rings, 3-5 clubs, 3-7 balls, balance, headbounce, 6-7 club passing, 270 minutes

Nice session at Camcircus. Started with some ring stuff. Was trying to get 4 ring scissors. Found it pretty tricky. Managed 5 sets back to pattern a couple of times and 6 to a drop on the 7th once. Feels harder than I'd expect given the time I've put in to the ball version and 3 ring backcrosses.

Also with rings - 4+bal, 4r pancakes, 645, 753 and single bx out of 5.

Spent 30 mins passing with Kerry, working on tricks out of 4 count and just getting 7 working again. Enjoyed putting some time into passing as rarely do so.

Nothing else too special with clubs or balls.

# 3-4 clubs, 3-5 balls, 3-5 rings, balance, 75 minutes

First things first, had to crack Heydar's 3 ring cascade plus balance. Thought it would take some time but surprisingly got it on 4th or 5th try. Pleased that this is now starting to feel solid.

Tried some 4 and 5 rings plus ring balance after (under low ceiling) which were far less pleasing.

Various other pockets of juggling through the evening but wasn't feeling very dedicated to anything so didn't achieve much else.

Total practice time: 75 minutes
