# 3-7 balls, 3-5 Clubs, 78 minutes

I was training in the basketball court when a man and a child entered. The child was wearing a MAGA hat. I glanced at the child's hat, because wearing a baseball style hat while playing basketball is dangerous. I then glanced at the man. We made eye contact and he thumbed his nose at me.

This series of events affected me psychologically, until the timer on the Routine Builder app went off. I tapped, 'NEXT' on the app and went on to 5 ball cascade.

Felt good, juggled well.

Tried using the app I made during a training session at the gym. It's the worst! But, it's still better than nothing.

The only music included in the app was four short folk songs played on the piano. Wow, that gets old quick!

This was the second time that I completed the lesson. Lessons need to change frequently.

# 3-5 clubs, 3-7 balls, 3-6 rings, 210 minutes

Nice relaxed first juggle of the new year. Juggling interspersed with significant periods of standing around chatting.

Nothing very impressive juggling-wise. Need to get working on my goals and carry on pushing for improvement.

My 4 club scissors were feeling pretty solid. No long runs recorded but short runs were feeling consistent. Also 3c backcrosses with a balance feeling good again but wasn't counting the length of runs. Other than that didn't really get anything new or special.

# 3-5 clubs, balance, 3-7 balls, 70 minutes

Excellent little juggle in what was glorious weather for hk in December. Almost exclusively clubs apart from 5 minutes when I had an audience and thought I better do something other than drilling 5 clubs!

3c bxx plus balance was the highlight. Felt natural and "easy" for the first time ever. Broke my old record several times in the space of 6 or 7 runs. Bests of 78 and 82 plus a run of c50 isolated.

Did a fair bit of 5 club endurance. Consistently getting 160-200c but struggle to go further. I think a mixture of bad form, low pattern and lack of strength. Need to get back to the gym.

Will probably juggle some more later as loving the chance to train without work getting in the way. Would have carried on now but for lunch with my brother.

Total practice time: 70 minutes

# 3-7 balls, 3-5 clubs, balance, 150 minutes

First day of juggling in a week owing to illness and then jetlag.

Was really nice to get to juggle outside in the warmth today though. Winters suck for juggling. Just need to get over my reluctance to practice anything I can't already do in public places though.

Was focusing mainly on clubs today. 5 clubs was feeling good. Spent a while practicing 5c bxx. Single throws to and from cascade getting seem to be getting more solid. Got a couple of 2 connected back to pattern.

Highlights: sunshine, 200+ catches of 5 clubs first try, 5c triples feeling good, 5c bxx improving, lots of applause from passers by!

Lowlights: 7 balls decidedly dodgy today, too many passers by!

Total practice time: 150 minutes
