# ball passing, 20 minutes

(With L)

L can't use her right hand for juggling right now, but I figured we could pass 5 balls with 3 hands.

7706 (4-handed siteswap where only 3 hands are used), L did crossing passes, I did righthanded straight passes and lefthanded selfs.

Also did a little bit of 3 balls between my right hand and Ls left hand, tried it both face to face and side by side.

# 4 clubs, 3 clubs, 70 minutes

# 4 clubs, 45 minutes

We were locked out for the first 40 minutes of our practice time, but eventually someone opened the door for us.

Warm up

Fountain, doubles. Practiced to stand still. I know I said earlier that I would do this every time, but I haven't. Took me a bit longer than usual to get 50 catches, since I didn't allow any foot movement.
534534 and back to fountain
Double single
Sync fountain, doubles
Transition from async fountain to sync fountain. Best attempt tonight: Dropped the 3rd pair of doubles after the transition. Most of the times the triple landed in the wrong place, or the lefthanded double in the first sync pair was bad. Very satisfying the times I got the triple to land nicely at the same time as the following double though!

# 7 balls, #technique, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 170 minutes

5b casc varied - 10 min.   warmup. high. 135 throws wristy 7-high. fastest.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Four times 8 gathers.   Maybe one or two launches somewhat near 9 c.   Two times 11 throws.
7b casc - 110 min.   49, 57, 59, 43, 51, 45, 47, 47, 51 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 59 ]
#technique #endupatt "easiest pattern" - For 5b enduring, I little by little optimized posture, pattern, rhythm, many things, details finetuning, from the running pattern. Today, with 7b, it struck me, what seems logical, that a throw is an ``element´´ of the pattern after all and it would make sense to start right off with one ``easiest´´ throw, and then try to keep doing all subsequent throws alike. I actually tried that starting with 5.fth(?) or 7.th(?) throw from launch, and got very smooth rather low patterns, extremely easy throwing with spare time plenty, but into early fails.   Kind of ``inductive´´ vs ``deductive´´ approaches so to say - from the pattern to best way to do the throw versus going from the single, individual throw to the desired pattern. (As we all know..) Often, in general, there's (at least) those two options to achieve a goal, those two ends from which to approach a pattern and improving on it: going for the maximum, that you can't do (then e.g. pumping, forcing, going for it, risking all), as opposed to starting and improving from the minimum, that you can do (then e.g. pyramid practise, short controlled runs).

# 7 balls, 5 balls, 117 minutes

Started off with a cold start on 7b, but it was so stiff and sedate that I preferred to warmup with 5b:
5b casc varied - 17 min.   Didn't want to do that long, but enduring wristy 7-high was hardly longer (127 throws and way below) than I want 7b runs to be.   Also (very) high and also fast runs.
7b casc - 100 min.   63, 55, 49, 49, 44(? 46?) throws longest runs. Okay yield and feel after two not so good days' practise.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]

# 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.

# 5 clubs, 15 minutes

Trying to do a flash. Almost got one: actually kind of caught all clubs, though the last one was too low and was caught between clubs only, not between my hands like on my previous flashes. Tried for a few more minutes but then felt like it started to get worse instead of better so I stopped.

# 7 balls, #psychologic, 9 balls flashing, #PR, 3 heavy balls, 185 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 9 min.
9b flashing - 53 min.   Two times 8 gathers.   First ever normal size balls flash, 9 catches clean. Overdue, but definitely "gotten" still is relieving and, yeah, cool to finally have it accomplished. Wonderful pattern, not narrow, not too wide, not very high, perfectly well-shaped and ~timed.   Several times upto 13 throws in matters of more than 9 throws.
7b casc - 123 min.   43, 53, 45, 45, 55, 43, 43, 49 cl (last run, stopped) throws longest runs.   #psychologic - Tried to not get into tensed mode trying to tie up with yesterday's great practise, but the memory was still too fresh, so forced for result a lot and didn't get it smooth enough. Twice over 50 is okay so far though.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   111 throws 6-high into collision.   173 t 5-high to drop(s).
9b flashing - 75 min.   Six times 8 gathers.   Sort of 11, 11, 13, 15, 13, 11, 12(? 14?) throws' launches.
7b casc - 135 min.   °woueeee°: 57, 53, 43, 45, 69, 53, 83 c cl new #PR, 49, 45, 51, 49, 43, 48, 75 (near old PR was only second best today!?), 45 throws longest runs.   #outstandingRuns - (outstanding by being longest and PR, else like other runs before) - bad start, pattern too fast or I was behind with handspeed .. had to struggle to keep it up at all (but after that, it's always good to have the worst part done and behind) .. got a pattern a bit too high for my taste (~4 ft above head), but managed to pull it down a bit (~3 ft sth) and get it ``comfortable´´ .. had one or two ``explosive´´ full power corrections at about 35 and or 40+ (50?) throws .. then it rolled as easy as can, ``cascady´´, untensed, downright relaxed, and went on and on .. lost control on a few flawly throws in a row, and managed to go to an ugly (selfthrow? a low 5?) full collect after slight collision and with two clustered balls. I've had over 80 throws formerly, but to collapse. Confirming with 75 t later this stint was very important to me (to not have it be an irrationally lucky peak run).   [ daily7b II: 83 ]

I was really tired tonight (jet lag) but decided to go and juggle at least a little bit anyway.

Nothing new, not very good juggling either.

Will go to bed now and hope to not be too tired tomorrow evening.

# 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.
