# Explorative, 50 minutes

A bit sore from the four hours of juggling yesterday (note to those scrutinizing these logs: I normally don't log practice at my local juggling club because it's not particularly fruitful practice time) so I thought I'd do some exploration today. Glad I did! I found an interesting tap that throws a [31]. Found this while trying a 97531 variation that turned out to be impossible (the way I had imagined it, anyway).

Looking forward to trying to run the 3b version of this cleanly and eventually putting it into some siteswaps. It can replace a 5_1 string.

Also made a little progress on (4x,4x)* bth and got a personal best of #ISC.

# Explorative, Mini session, 30 minutes

Came up with one of my favourite ideas yet! Walking around a broken-plane split-synced 4b in columns. Hoping to have it recorded and posted before the panel discussion on the 29th.

Otherwise, focused completely on fundamental components of some long-term projects. Cross-columned, cross-2xed inverted box will be mine, hopefully by the end of the year. I haven't smacked my arms against each other for years!

# Explorative, 60 minutes

Figuring out and practising some squeezes. I have enough ideas for a new video, need to nail them doing a bit before recording.

Got more frustrated than usual, this session.

# Explorative, Mini session, 80 minutes

First real practise session in a while (was too busy during the week to practise...blech). Things were understandably rusty, #HLAIB was surprisingly okay. I should be getting some more beanbags tomorrow!

# Explorative, Mostly full session, 90 minutes

Everything was average. #7b was pretty clean, but no really long runs. Got 12 catches of #HLAIB a couple times.

# Full session, Explorative, Recording, 170 minutes

Not feeling quite as invincible as yesterday, but still very good. Qualified #HLAIB 3 times consecutively, and got 12 catches of it a few times. It's starting to feel runnable. Dear god, finally. It's easily my hardest pattern, and it'll be nice when I can run it long enough to make recording it worthwhile.

Recorded the footage for my #4bdots video. Hoping it makes some waves, I really like that family of patterns and think it's a general idea with interesting applications.

# Explorative, Mostly full session, 75 minutes

Less energetic today than the last few days.

#HLAIB was hitting nicely, got many consecutive flashes and a couple qualifies. Elbows held up well, it feels a little more efficient than it used to.

#4bdots was okay today, but a little slow. I wanted to see how my form was doing, so I decided to film:

That pretty much ended my session for today. It was quite a bit harder than a typical nutshot with this pattern.

I did some token 5 and 7b, but nothing fantastic.

# Explorative, Mostly full session, 75 minutes

First 30 minutes explorative, recorded some ideas (sloppy runs for further refining).

#bxrbxbth was working smoothly and well. #HLIDB was running fairly well, a clean, short run would seem to be well-placed on jugglingrock soon.

#4bdots is coming along well. #HLAIB was working well, was getting flashes pretty consistently and elbows didn't hurt at all. I'm optimistic about taking another run at it.
