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
Nice session working on clubs, rings and balls in equal measure. Filmed some of my practice to review technique and (in theory) stop me counting catches of some patterns which I think is leading to tension in my less stable patterns.
Most pleased with 4 club singles plus balance dropped down into 5c cascade. Took a while but ended up getting it into a decent cascade several times - think I should be able to get this pretty solid in time. Now to move from 5c to 4 with bal and back....
Also new/improved for me:
6 rings - 18 catches
3 balls + headbounce - 4 catches clean with bounce maintained. Very nearly got 6 catches a few times but couldn't keep the hb going after. Feeling much better thanks to raising the height of the bounce a couple of inches and a bit of coaching from heydar.
7 and 9 ball passing in 1-count with Heydar. Never properly passed balls before. 7 came quickly and a few decent runs of 9 (along with quite a few bad ones!). Need to review footage taken before battery died to review technique.
Otherwise working on club, ball and ring backcrosses. Got 15 catches of 5b bc which is good for me.
Total practice time: 240 minutes
