# Full session, 135 minutes

EXHAUSTING! Whew, a 2 hour practise by myself is very taxing. Sweating practically the whole time.

Got 16 catches of #HLAIB three times today, including one fairly clean one recorded. Very close to a #9b flash, got 8/9 a bunch of times in the 15 minutes I practised it. Realized I'd been forgetting to practise #4bdots lately, but I remembered to tack on 10 minutes of it on the end of my practise today. #5bbx were bad.

# Full session, 110 minutes

Still loving my space's restored lighting. Gorgeous.

Feeling a bit sore today, still had fun. Came up with some great half #4bdots variations, hoping I'll be able to polish them up by the end of September. Worked on 753 and another simple 5b siteswap that I can't remember right now, which was a nice change of pace. #7b was much better today, probably from the additional time on task of 5b.

# Full session, 55 minutes

Worked very hard through this one! A bit sore from the 4 hour club meeting yesteday, but ah well.

#5bbx didn't have their same magic as a couple days ago, but still felt good. Got a flash of 3 starting with each hand. #7b felt pretty good, but I was too exhausted to have a long go at it.

#4blevels patterns are really coming along nicely. Starting to get better extension on the catch. Some of this stuff should be Tricks of the Month-worthy, so that's nice.

# 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.

# Full session, 80 minutes

Back from the break. Tried high-low inverted dome box #hlidb which I think will look super cool. Doesn't seem to hard, got a qualify of it today. Looking forward to cleaning it up.

#5b siteswaps went well, ran 771 for a personal best 18 catches from and into a cascade. Starting to feel better.

#7b also went well, broke 60 catches often, got up to 80 catches a couple times. Feeling more reliable.

Mostly tech practise, with a little exploration.

# Full session, Explorative, 90 minutes

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.

Great practise today!

Two days ago, I noticed a problem with my high-low-around inverted box that was allowing for flashes, but stopping me from running the pattern. I started to make some headway on fixing it. Jeeze, that is a hell of a pattern, I'll be ecstatic when I can run it well enough to have it worth putting in a good video.

Synced #4bdots went well, was getting consistent runs with a good shape most of the time.

#5b siteswaps were hitting very well. Got flashes of most of them, going back into a cascade, without dropping in between. Was hitting qualifies of 97531, switching the starting hand sometimes. 771 needs work.

My fitness level has been noticably higher, and I've been able to practise fatiguing patterns (like #hlaib) for much longer periods than previously.

Not juggling related, but...I achieved my semester's goal of completing a traverse at my campus rock climbing gym! Woohoo!

Was there for a good time, not a long time. Unfortunately, left elbow starting hurting, despite taking the weekend off. Grrr!

Another pretty good practise! Couldn't push #boxes or even #numbers too hard today, as my elbows are feeling off. I'm going climbing tomorrow, hopefully they're better by then...
