First time in UCD.
Tried a rola bola and it wasn't a disaster.
Taught a french kid some basic 3 ball tricks.
New PR for (8x,4)(4,4)*.
Got 34 throws with 7 once.
6 club passing with Des. Threw/caught some early doubles in 4-count for the first time.
Total practice time: 210 minutes
Regular 7 ball practice. Almost got 28 catches once.
Some basic club passing with Joe at the end. 4 & 2 count on the right. 4 count on the left. 3 count. Went quite well.
Overall: Decent session.
Total practice time: 130 minutes
Location: Goldsmith Hall
Solo juggling was mainly fails with backcrosses of 5, 6 and 7 balls.
Spent quite some time passing clubs with Misha and comparing the common wild edible mushrooms of Britain and Russia. Passing mainly consisted of me trying to master some tricks out of 4 count and getting some decent runs of ultimates.
Ball passing with Heydar to finish. Highlight was in excess of 200 catches of 9. Feels good now. Should be able to run solidly soon.
Total practice time: 120 minutes
Lazy practice following a nice couple of hours of workshops at a local event in the rather glorious sunshine.
Didn't focus on much in my solo session. Managed to kick up from 3 to 7 balls in one run which was nice. Done it before but haven't tried for a while.
5b back crosses getting slowly better. Feels nicer and more consistent but long runs are still sadly lacking.
Tried handstands a few times. Was failing miserably so got some help from Andy. Maybe I should finally try and get these.
Spent a long time trying to get "countdown" passing with kerry. After some frustration managed to get complete rounds (4321234321234count) to a clean finish twice which was highly satisfying. Hope it will just be runnable next time I try.
20mins of unexceptional ball passing with Heydar to finish.
Total practice time: 180 minutes
Unexceptional club juggling session. Working on usual backcrosses, balance and a few other bits.
Club passing with Misha. 4 count tricks (tomahawks, half contortion throws, bxx, under leg, shoulders etc.), 3 count, 2 count lefthanded, ultimates and countdown.
Ball passing with Heydar. Filmed most of this. Noticeable improvement over last week:
9b - best 90 catches. Me throwing crosses and slightly higher. 4-5 runs in the 70-90 passes range.
10b - best 39 catches. Very collision prone, but began to feel manageable once we raised the pattern a bit
11b - 5 minutes at the end in pretty shoddy light with no decent runs. Felt almost easier than 10 though. Something to work on.
Total practice time: 250 minutes
