# 7 balls, 5 balls, 5 clubs, 70 minutes

Warmup. 15 minutes.

Running 7b and 5c to 100 catches. 40 minutes.

3 clubs in one hand. 12 minutes.

Before juggling on colder days, I do some cardio activity until my hands feel warm when I hold them against my face. I usually do an exercise bike.

# 4 clubs, 5 balls, 7 balls, 1 minutes

I was freezing all day and when I got to the park, I had a hard time warming up. Once I got warmed up, I started sweating really bad. It kept getting in my eyes, because I forgot my sweat towel.

Spent like 30 minutes to get 121 catches of 7b clean. Totally worth it.

Ran 5c for 100 catches after a few tries. 5c is definitely easier than 7b.

Finished with 7531 (quintuple, triple, single, flat) with 4 clubs. Hitting this trick about 1 in 5 now. Still super scary.

Total practice time: 1 minutes

# 6 clubs, 7 balls, 5 clubs, 1 minutes

I warmed up on an exercise bike. This was really helpful. I juggle a lot better when my hands are warm, cold hands have been a problem lately.

Ran 7 balls for 100+ catches (clean) on the first try. Ran 5 clubs for 100 catches.

Did 6 clubs for a little while. Need more efficient practice strategy for 6 clubs.

Total practice time: 1 minutes

# 5 balls, 5 clubs, 7 balls, 6 clubs, 80 minutes

I felt really good today, more confidant than usual. I just got Youtube Red, so I listened to music on my phone while I trained, which I don't usually do. Uninterrupted music is helpful.

Juggling went well.

7 balls: 130 catches (clean)
5 clubs: 100 catches (clean)
6 clubs: 6 catches (clean - while several people were watching)

I accomplished the above in under an hour. Normally I would have left at this point, but I decided to stay and work on some 4 club stuff and 7351. Lots of people watching.

Props looked really good in the sunlight today.

# 7 balls, 5 balls, 45 minutes

I have found that a short training session geared toward getting to 100 catches with 7b and then 5c is quite enjoyable. This is the format for my short training session (each bullet is about 5 minutes):

  • 5b cascade
  • Warmup exercise from Doug Sayers Video
  • 5b high throws and chases
  • run 7b to 100+ catches
  • 3c tricks
  • 4c tricks
  • run 5c for 100+ catches

Total practice time: 45 minutes

# 7 balls, 4 clubs, 75 minutes

Warm up with 5b. Trained 7b cascade until I hurt the tip of my right index finger. Then I juggled 4 clubs in the breeze. 633 with 4c is really going well.

I juggle in a large open field. The sun sets in the west, so I juggle facing east for maximum visibility. There is a bathroom east of the field. When I juggle, I can see the bathroom.

In the past few weeks I have seen two drug sales at that bathroom.

This evening, I saw something more disturbing:

A disheveled man walked to the bathroom carrying a large box of donuts. At 46 years old, 183cm and 114kg he looked moderately diabetic. He loitered at the bathroom (typical behavior for a drug transaction). A few minutes later an 11 to 13 year old girl walked up to the bathroom. She had started to open the door when the man engaged her in conversation.

While they talked she stood still with her hand on the door handle. He walked from her right to her left, coming within arms length.

Rant: The bathrooms are always destroyed too!

Total practice time: 75 minutes
