# Targetted, 40 minutes

Dots were looking good, especially 94444. Made some progress on #FISC, which is super promising. Thinking I might be able to get a good run of it by the end of the year.

# Targetted, 65 minutes

Focusing on some patterns to put in videos. The videos are:
Raging against inadequacy - assorted technical and angry patterns
Dots - ...dots.
Throw ins - throw-in patterns that I think are interesting. It's been fun thinking about content for this that isn't the boring, typical ones.

I've been working on:
A (6x,4)* dots variation
A 94444 dots variation
Three dots fundamental patterns
Half dots with the other hand interacting in some way

#HLAIB
#ISC
#I4BB (inverted 4b box)

534 with 3 bbth
#bbth (3b)
663 with the 3 bbth

Today I got my first connection of 2 (6x,4)* dots variation, which was nice. It's pretty simple, but I'd still like a minimum of 4 rounds for a video.
Got about 70 catches of split-sync 4b dots
3 rounds of #I4BB. Feels like I could run it indefinitely with some practice. It's got a fun swoopy motion right now.


Monday I did my first connection of 2 of the 94444 dots variation. Looking for at least 8 rounds for video.

# Targetted, 30 minutes

It still hurts to grip things. Almost positive it's just muscle pain, though, so I opted to do a gentle session today instead of straight up skipping practice.

Made a tiny breakthrough on half bth (4x,4x)*: I should be throwing from a bit wider than I'd been trying before. I think I was trying it that way because that's how I see everyone doing it: kind of hunched over, throws traveling horizontally very little. Since I have so much experience doing a pretty wide 3b bth. I'm going to try to adapt that form rather than work on the traditional one.

I also worked a little on 4b blind because it seems to be a popular world record to chase right now. Michael Hendriksen beat my record from a few years ago, leaving me with no blind records at all. That's no good.

I've realized a mental thing that I do: if one person does something, that person is an anomaly. If two people do it, then I figure EVERYONE can do it.

Typically I don't log club meetings, but this one was surprisingly efficient. Ate a very large meal beforehand, and was energized for practically the whole time. #5bbx were going the best they ever have. I got 7 out of 9 catches on a few runs, and some 7/8 catch runs. The throws seems /perfect/.

Crushed my very old #5bendruance record, going from about 5.5 to 12 minutes (+/- ~15 seconds, I was going by timing of songs). It seems to be benefiting my #7b form, which was the goal.

Mostly worked on 3b body throws preparing for the #TotM video. It went pretty well. Sore from yesterday's one hour practise, then four hour club meeting.

Very focussed on 5b backcrosses, specifically getting my left hand to throw a bit more quickly and more forward. Also did a little bit of 4b levels.

This is probably the highest 5b:3b ratio I've had in a practise session since 2011. Hands just couldn't handle 3b today, still sore from climbing/canoeing this weekend.

Thought about squeeze catches, came up with a bunch of variations on a theme. Don't know if I'll ever record them, but they're okay.

Worked on handspeed stuff, elbows held up well. 4b dots was running like I'd never seen it before, very fast and clean. It's almost ready to record and post publicly!
