# 5-6 balls, 3-5 Clubs, 90 minutes

Last night I dreamed that I was juggling outside and one of my balls rolled into a lake when I dropped it. In the dream I dove in after the ball. I am ill with a head-cold and had taken some cough medicine. That always makes my dreams vivid.

Even though I was feeling quite sick, today was an unusually nice day for February, so I decided to go to the park to juggle outside in the sun.

I had a minor bike crash on the way to the park, but was able to recover without hitting the ground.

Juggling was smooth though. None of the balls rolled into the lake.

I started with 5 balls. To warmup I juggled a 5 ball cascade a different heights. Once I was warm, I did some siteswaps and ran my short 5 ball routine several times. Switching to 6 balls, I hit the async to sync (and back) transition 17 out of 20 times. Felt good.

Next was clubs. 3 clubs was terrible. I don't really do three clubs very often. 4 clubs went well. I have juggled outside around 400 times, and I am always amazed by how much people are impressed by 4c async/sync transition. I had some really good runs of 5 clubs. Mostly, I ran 5 clubs to collect because there were lots of people watching. I don't think that I have ever had that many people watch me before.

Total practice time: 90 minutes

Location: Outside!
