# 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!

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.

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.

Mucked around with some new stuff, I've been having fun exploring as a warmup for my practise sessions. Qualified high-low, cross-columned inverted box, which might even be easier than a standard high-low inverted box. Need to learn it from the other version of cross columned inverted box.

Been practising 771 (with entry and exit) and transitioning to (and between directions of) five ball shower. Slow going, but I feel like I need to be able to do those things.
