# 4 clubs, 3 clubs, 45 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
534534 and back to fountain
four times 534 and back to fountain, got it once.
Sync fountain

3 clubs or 2 clubs:
Some easy juggling
Trying some multiplex throws. P helped giving tips on how to juggle 4 clubs with multiplexes, didn't really try it but will probably do that another time.

# passing, 75 minutes

(With P, who is visiting Stockholm)
3-count with tricks. Tried switching to 2-count (slow/fast pattern, one of us kept doing regular 3-count, P showed me how to do it) I did the "steal a club and juggle 4 until the next pass beat".
5-count popcorn, mostly with heffs, also did triple single but my triples are usually not very good. P did some more variations.
Practicing zaps, first with 1-3 clubs.
zap zap zip
75666 (pass self self zap self)
zaps ultimates (5)

(With P and S)
Civil War feed with walking. Made it so that feedees got the 4-count on the right side, so we could walk easier.
3-count on doubles, but with only 9 clubs in total, walking when you get 2 clubs (so, doing 3 passes in each position). Some kind of 3-jugglers version of the "shooting star" on doubles that we often do when we are 4 jugglers. Took us a while before we got a full round. Also tried something similar on 4-count with crossing passes, didn't spend enough time on that one for me to understand exactly how it worked.

Total practice time: 120 minutes

# 3 balls, 3 clubs, teaching, 20 minutes

Arrived a little bit late to circus practise. Found the other participants waiting outside of the hall. Apparently someone had forgotten to unlock the door for us.

Well, I was not that motivated to do outdoor juggling, just did some easy stuff. Then asked if anyone wanted to juggle with me and got two girls who wanted to learn juggling (they couldn't practise their usual stuff like silks and stuff outdoors...). They got the 2 ball exchange after a while and did a few attempts at a 3 ball flash, at least they managed to throw the 3 balls but without catching them. I hope they will give it some more time.

(Logged time is approximate juggling time, I was there for about 1 hour, outside of the gym...)

Total practice time: 20 minutes

# 5 balls, 10 minutes

Flash. Took me 5 minutes to get 10 successful attempts (with fails between them)

Then tried 6 catches for 5 minutes (instead of just until I got it once). Got it 3 times, though the first of them was bad with the last two throws caught more or less at the same time and at least one of them hitting the ceiling

Common problems: Strange rhythm (usually not throwing fast enough), balls colliding, throws too high (hitting the ceiling), throws too much forward

Total practice time: 30 minutes

423 (double, thumb roll, backcross)

Siteswap 5 as doubles:
50505

55550

# 5 clubs, 15 minutes

Trying to do a flash. Failing.

# passing, 45 minutes

(With S)
7c 1-count
Techno
7c 2-count doubles, S also threw early triples and late triples
7c 4-count triples was too difficult
8c 2-count doubles, difficult. Did 5 passes before dropping sometimes, not sure if we got more than that.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 70 minutes

Short warm up

3 clubs:
45123
423

4 clubs:
4c fountain, doubles
534534 and back to fountain

Sync fountain, needs more practise
Transition from async fountain to sync fountain (by throwing a triple). Got it 3 times with at least 4 pairs of doubles caught after the transition, but never got to a nice sync pattern.
Transition from sync fountain to async fountain (by throwing a triple with the right hand and double with the left), didn't get it, but a few attempts were close (meaning: at least I caught and re-threw the double and the triple before dropping anything). Common problems: Triple too low, triple underspun, double too high

Total practice time: 235 minutes

# 4 clubs, 45 minutes

Warm up

Kick-up from 3c cascade to 4c fountain
552, starting with my left hand
525, starting with my right hand
55550
...none of the siteswap 5 practices were particularly good.

# 5 clubs, 5 minutes

# passing, 60 minutes

(With S)
Jim's asynchronous ppsps with flips
phpspsh, starting to work, at least got more than a full round a few times
7c 3-count
7c Why Not, difficult but didn't feel impossible.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, ball passing, 30 minutes

Lunch time juggling with L (on a Wednesday instead of Thursday this time, because it's supposed to rain tomorrow)

Warm up

4c fountain
534534 and back to fountain did not work today. Might be able to blame the wind for some of the failed attempts, but not for all of them.
Kick-up from 3c Cascade to 4c fountain, only got it once.

Ball passing, 5b 1-count, we got over 60 catches (30 each) once.

My juggling was not very good today, but L did 12 catches of 3b cascade. :) I don't think she has even tried to do more than 4 before.

Total practice time: 30 minutes

# 4 clubs, 90 minutes

Warm up

Fountain, doubles. Got 199 catches. Not a new PR but close.
534534 and back to fountain. Also tried to continue but didn't get far...
Gallop rhythm double single
Sync fountain, doubles. Didn't work well today.

# passing, 60 minutes

(With S)
Jim's async ppsps with flips (pfpspfsppfsps). This is now the pattern we start with when not saying anything... Probably not the "default passing pattern" for most people. ;)
Odnom (9647772)
psphpzphz
phpspsh, today I didn't do the wrong throw too often, I'm starting to get the pattern. Most mistakes were just bad throws.
7c 3-count
5-count popcorn, with tricks/variations. I didn't do anything more advanced than switching between 3.5p 3 3 4 4 and 3.5p 3 3 5 3 on my side of the pattern.

Total practice time: 150 minutes

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, ball passing, 40 minutes

Lunch break juggling

Warm up

4c fountain
534534 and back to fountain

45123

Some other 3c juggling while talking...

Ball passing (with L):
5b 1-count, got at least 40 passes (20 each). We could also juggle while talking about other stuff today, so there were some rounds where I didn't count the passes.

Also did a few pass-throws with 1 club.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 55 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
Sync fountain

Siteswap 5 as doubles:
55500
50505
525
55550
...didn't work... Tried a 5c flash anyway but failed.

# passing, 60 minutes

(With S and J)
Feed 3-count/pps with walking
10c 2-count/ 4-count feed with walking. I don't do good triple passes so it worked better for me to do a double to myself when walking
Roundabout (because we wanted to do something that works for the last 4 minutes... Didn't quite get it running though. )

Total practice time: 155 minutes

# 3 balls, 4 balls, 27 minutes

I told L today at work that I had done 6 catches with 5 balls, and said "Lets see who gets 30 catches first; me with 5 balls or you with 3"... So now I better practise my 5 balls. ;)

# 5 balls, 16 minutes

Flash. Took me 10 minutes to get 10 successful flashes today (with failed attempts between them). Common problems: the last two throws too low. The last throw landing too far in front of me. Balls hitting the ceiling.

Then went for 6 catches. Got it once and stopped after that. Very messy.
