# 5 balls, 7 balls, 60 minutes

While training 5b overheads, I was hit in the eye with a ball. My eye hurt and watered a lot. I had to stop juggling for several minutes. It was pretty frustrating, but I did some jumprope and then moved on to 7b.

Ran 7b for 100 catches (to collect) on the fourth or 5th try. Working on 7b endurance has really helped my control with 7b.

Didn't sleep well last night, and didn't really feel well today. Juggle anyway, why not?

I have been working on overheads a lot lately, and tried 5b overheads today. Some good runs, around 11 catches (I'll call that a PR and log in records).

After juggling a lot of 7b cascade the last two days, my arms were tired. After a few runs of 7b cascade I rage quit and threw the balls like an angry child. Probably should have skipped 7b. all together. Need more optimal training structure.

# 5 balls, 1 minutes

I was juggling in a basketball gym. There were five people shooting baskets.

Juggling was good. Single rounds of 744 were going smoothly. One high throw, and then two low throws; and then back into a five ball cascade.

Then a mistake. A high throw was inaccurate, too far out of reach to be caught. I could see it sailing behind me, out of sight. Continuing to juggle was impossible. I collected four balls, anticipating the sound of the fifth ball hitting the floor behind me.

There was no thud. The ball never hit the ground. The milliseconds dilated into seconds as I turned around confused.

I turned to face a basketball player who was walking off the court. He had caught the ball and tossed it back to me.

# 5 balls, 4 clubs, 50 minutes

Three weeks after having my wisdom teeth extracted, I required another surgery. There are currently 5 sutures in my mouth. I have lost a 10 lbs since the first surgery and am very weak.

One of the last nice days of the year, so why not juggle?

I can't look very high, so I didn't do any throws higher than a '6'.

5b: smooth transitions between (6x,4)* and (6,6)(6x,2)*
4c: sync - async transitions

Starting to feel good again after having wisdom teeth removed (surgery) three weeks ago. The surgery was necessary to maintain good oral health, but it also had other benefits. I believe the wisdom teeth were a source of constant headaches which caused mild vertigo, making juggling difficult. Track stops of the bicycle are much easier after having my wisdom teeth removed.

Still taking it easy with jumprope and spins.

3b - one handed cascade
4b - three in one hand, one hand behind the back
3b, 4b, 5b - use all white except one pink ball. Throw the pink ball higher using 522, 53155, 53444, 7445555, etc...
