# 3 balls, 4 balls, 27 minutes

I told L today at work that I had done 6 catches with 5 balls, and said "Lets see who gets 30 catches first; me with 5 balls or you with 3"... So now I better practise my 5 balls. ;)

Thought maybe I should learn to juggle 5 balls after all... It might help me learn 5 clubs.

Warm up, struggled with the 531 part

4b fountain
55500 with hand clap, from Cascade and back to Cascade. Then from Cascade and continued with 55500.
552 didn't work
55550 from Cold start, one time worked, continuing didn't
45123 works OK
441
3b Mills Mess
4b sync fountain, fewer catches than with clubs.

4b Fountain-Day / Attacking the 4b fountain - ~250 min

Had to wait in front of the house, so took this opportunity to eradicate my fountain- stumbling block / repugnancy / aversion:

Hardly got over like 12 throws with it. I knew before, I'd dearly need most trivial exercises in order to get anywhere with this:
- started off with 1hd 2b joining in for single throws ( s'swap 4[22]4[22]..4[42]424[22]..a.s.o. ). Then in a joining-hand's 2-beat ( 4[22]4[22]..4[42]424[42]42..a.s.o. ) as long as would go, then every now and then two consecutive throws from the joining hand ( 4[22]..4[42]44424[22]..a.s.o. ). Then more throws.
Those exercises got me to about 20 throws of the regular, 'full' fountain.
- Weakhand did unwanted columns. Hands weren't `connected´.
- Figured out this: one `main´-hand shall keep on doing 1hd 2b, the other goes to collect as soon as I lose control after a few consecutive fountain throws. So there wouldn't be any drop. And changed this main-hand during the run, alternated it. This was a good exercise for both hands to re-join the other doing 1hd 2b into full fountain.   The interruptions (one hand needing to collect and re-join in) got less, and I got longer and longer and lower runs; lower also means a flatter angle to throw away from middle (like away from middle in "V" shape so to say). Worked myself up like that, and also by doing on different heights, to an about 100 throws run [ #prEx ] and longer poised snapped-in phases, yet more slaving to the pattern than really having full control (so, still not ``owned´´, but I now know what it's supposed to be and feel like - I've once and for all `seen it before´ now).

[ #SoL #mentec #exercises(?) .. ? ]

All this felt like 2½ (hoping for maybe 3) hours passed, and I couldn't believe it had been over 4h when I looked at my watch. There were a few  "Djeeses, how can such a simple pattern be so hard to get down?!"-moments, as even half-long runs upto like 30 throws still felt awkward, tensed, klutzed, very unsatisfying (whereas the exercises with early collects were very much okay). Hadn't I have had to wait for a technician, I might in between have adjourned to another day. So, yeah, unconditionally "doing until" got me through it (and made me forget how long this really took).
