# 7 balls, 4 clubs, 75 minutes

Warm up with 5b. Trained 7b cascade until I hurt the tip of my right index finger. Then I juggled 4 clubs in the breeze. 633 with 4c is really going well.

I juggle in a large open field. The sun sets in the west, so I juggle facing east for maximum visibility. There is a bathroom east of the field. When I juggle, I can see the bathroom.

In the past few weeks I have seen two drug sales at that bathroom.

This evening, I saw something more disturbing:

A disheveled man walked to the bathroom carrying a large box of donuts. At 46 years old, 183cm and 114kg he looked moderately diabetic. He loitered at the bathroom (typical behavior for a drug transaction). A few minutes later an 11 to 13 year old girl walked up to the bathroom. She had started to open the door when the man engaged her in conversation.

While they talked she stood still with her hand on the door handle. He walked from her right to her left, coming within arms length.

Rant: The bathrooms are always destroyed too!

# 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 25 minutes

It was too windy to use Norwiks, so I used my SRX Russians.

They wobbled a lot when I juggled 6.

I could barely get past 7 catches of 7.

62 catches of 7.

12 rounds of (8,8)(4,4).

3 rounds of 9555. Haven't tried more than 1 round in months. My technique has improved massively, but still needs work. I throw with just my arm now (on both sides).

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 185 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Wristy 6-high (below 50 th).   136 th 5-high.

7b casc - 123 min.   (41, 41, 41, 41), ~45+ (uncounted estimated), 43, 58 (nice and smooth run, but °whew° for only good result today), 43, throws longest runs. (hard concentrating with moskitoes bouncing onto and into eyelashes, eyelids, ears an' everywhere)   [ daily7b II: 58 ]

Transition from 7 to 3 rounds of (8x,6)* on both sides.

10 rounds of 7733 on both sides. This is feeling much easier now. Technique is improving: only throwing with my arms.

Very good session.

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 4 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 230 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 43 min.   Special attention today for my "fastest"-pattern, but big & slow; other than assumed, it's not   rev--normal--normal,   but   rev--rev--normal--normal   ( took a while to find out, as the first rev is almost a slam .. puzzling ). Also tried   rev--rev--normal   which was pretty puzzling ( upto ~3 rounds only ).
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   88, 128 cl wristy 6-high.   192 th normal 5-high (~head-high + 1 handwidth).
9b flashing - 28 min.   iv 7 gathers' launches.
5b 56752 - 16 min.   Two 8th sides. Two 9th sides. One 10th side(?), i think.
4b 66161 - 3 min.   Messy, bad, maybe sort of 6--6--1--6--[collapse]. Tried 626262626262..6616[a.s.o.], (start from 1hd 3b), but was even worse with that get-in being puzzling on top of getting it anyway not.
7b casc - 134 min.   45, [break], 51, 47, 51 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
in between, after break, for re-warmup, a bit (2-3min?) more 4b-66161 .. #SoL - " feed every empty hand ! "  ( + " throw a 6 with every full or just fed hand! ", or: " get rid of everything with a 6 ! " ((when no hand is empty)) )  seems to work just great, so far  ( got like [launch]--661616616--[collapse or collect] or so iirc ).
