# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 80 minutes

Spent more time than usual talking to people instead of juggling, so practice time became a bit shorter than usual.

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
Sync fountain, doubles
53 once and back to fountain
534534 and back to fountain
Kick-up from 3c cascade to 4c fountain

3 clubs:
Some easy juggling. Demonstrated 423.

Siteswap 5 as doubles:
52512
55500 with hand clap

...I'll miss the evening practice that is not taking place tonight, still easter school holidays so no halls available in Norrtälje... But this is too little juggling for a Sunday. I wish I had a good practice space with high ceiling at home.

# passing, 60 minutes

(With L)
4-count

(With L and S)
2-count / 4-count feed, L tried walking (taking the clubs down) so S and me took turns feeding

(With S and H)
Trying to set a routine for the annual performance. About the same things as last Thursday.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 25 minutes

Well... It was actually decent juggling weather when I walked home from the bus, so I thought maybe I could get some more juggling practice after all. Sun, almost no wind, just a little bit cold. It had been raining with some snow or hail when I was on the bus though, so I didn't dare to wait until after dinner.

Unfortunately, a very large cloud started covering the sun and sky just as I started juggling. No sun for me.

First outdoor juggling with my new clubs. First stains of grass and dirt on the knobs and tops... Well, summer will be here soon, so it was just a matter of time anyway.

The clouds made me a bit stressed, felt like I had to hurry before it started raining. Gave up when I felt a few drops of rain, but now the sun is shining again. Should have stayed.

Ah, juggling...
Short warm up
A little bit of 4c fountain

Siteswap 5 as doubles:
55500, usually got it once or twice before either dropping or having to go back to regular cascade to not drop.
52512
50505, starting with 3 in my right hand. Got 6 throws to collect a few times.
552, starting as 525, still difficult.

...also got 3 people watching towards the end so I showed them a little bit of 4c fountain and 3c tricks.

Total practice time: 165 minutes

Locations: Södermalmsskolan (Fritidsjonglörerna), Ute på gården

# 3 clubs, 30 minutes

Nothing new.

Started with my old clubs (since I had a set of those in the living room already) but then juggled my new ones.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 35 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles

Siteswap 5 as doubles:
52512
50505 (starting with 3 in my right hand)

Starting to get used to my new clubs, at least getting closer to doing as well with them as with my old ones.

# 5 clubs, 10 minutes

Trying to do a flash. Failing, but not worse than earlier.

# passing, 70 minutes

7c Why Not, still too difficult. Had many collisions between my last (straight) righthanded pass and the incoming pass to that hand. Not sure why. Also did many heffs too high, my brain is not used to heffs being lower than the passes.
5-count popcorn

(With S and H)
Trying some patterns that should be easy, we should choose something to do at our small annual performance in the beginning of May...

10c feed, started with H feeding, then S walked. Not solid. Also tried going into this from S and H passing 7 clubs.
Line, long / short feed, me in the middle doing short passes in 4-count. Also with me turning around to face the other person (who then became feeder). This works.
Dropback line with H doing dropbacks to S, me just doing 4-count or 2-count. Worked in 4-count, could work in 2-count too.
Me doing 6-count with S and H doing 12-count while walking around each other in a circle. Easy.
S and H doing Runaround (or is it walkaround...) and replaced the throw they did from right hand to themselves but in front of the other person with a pass to me (I did 4-count), worked OK after a while.
Bruno's Nightmare, 9-beat version, H said he had not done that before but it was not far from working, we got about a half round (so everyone walked once).

Total practice time: 115 minutes

2-count / 4-count feed

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 20 minutes

# club balance, 10 minutes

Trying to balance a club on my nose while sitting on the floor.

# passing, 20 minutes

(With P)
4-count with tricks

# 3 clubs, 20 minutes

Relaxed juggling. I'm getting tired, but some things still worked a little bit better than earlier today.

Last evening of Swedish Juggling Convention... Maybe a little bit more juggling... Or not.

# passing, 60 minutes

Yay, more passing!

W feed 2-count / 4-count with walking through the pattern. First time I successfully walked through this kind of pattern... Seems to work fine if I just watch each pass in front of me and walk forward after that.

(With J,O and P)
Shooting Star, 9 clubs, 4-count. Then tried 2-count.

(With O and P)
10c feed 2-count/4-count with walking, though we took down the clubs when walking.

(Mostly with O and A)
10c 2-count /4-count feed with walking, (preparation for Ambled V, but we didn't get that far). Found out that I probably find it easiest to actually do a 5-count while walking, just doing one of the throws to the same hand.

# club balance, 35 minutes

Workshop club on club balance, including trying to catch that way.
