5 balls, 22 minutes

Flash. It took me 9 minutes to get it 10 times, but at least it worked pretty well at the end of those minutes (I probably only had 3 flashes after 7-8 minutes...)

Trying to do 9 catches. Failing.

5 balls, 3 minutes

Flash. Just wanted to give the small beanbags another try, only until I had got the flash 10 times (with failed attempts between them). Success rate might be higher than with the MMX balls, but the flash still feels sloppier. Often the last throw was too low.

5 balls, 6 minutes

Flash. Back to the MMX balls. It took 6 minutes to get it 10 times.

5 balls, 2 minutes

Wasn't planning on any morning juggling, just wanted to try to do a flash with the small beanbags that I used to practise 5b last year. Got a few flashes. They are easier to catch 3 in one hand, but I think that's the only advantage compared to my MMX balls.
