3 clubs, 60 minutes

Warm up

423 with a shoulder drop, was difficult today for some reason. Many drops.
45123 with a shoulder drop
522 with a backcross triple, once and back to cascade.
1up 2up. I still find everything synchronous difficult... Probably because I don't do it very much.

...and a little bit of some other stuff.

4 clubs, 40 minutes

Fountain

534, the triple were hitting the ceiling at first (4,85m) but after a few minutes it worked better. I still didn't get many catches, but I didn't spend much time on it, either.

passing, 50 minutes

after getting b & r caught a few times in a row (ss:330), did w\ three. lots'a 2 c 1 drop, then, right after thinking: "in a tiny pattern, there's not so much aberration.", got them all caught, 3 c cl. got another one doing "not throw ahead!", and one more later. [ iii 3 c cl #prEx ]
74' --- 3b fast tennis ( ins'--ins'--outs'--outs' ) --- hoping on >100, maybe PR .. [ wrong!: yesterday, counted sets of 8 throws instead what they are actually sets of 4 throws. ] .. but now, for real,: 52 t. .. and back to blundering at 4 t launches. tried:
• do 5th throw no matter what,
• normal only + rev only, just a few rounds for (re)calibration of frontplane, beatspeed, ratioes, crossing point.

16' --- 5b 7-high --- 294 throws. #endupatt #mentec - imagining jogging on the Chinese Wall ( now flat, then steps, then steep, a.s.o. throws~steps ).

• , , , reachovers blindf'. - caught a few!
• , , , propmix 2b1pole: the pole ~1,10m standing in the middle, me (all sitting) swaying its top over at its turn (balls cascading) - fun! got 16 catches (#prEx then).

Flash. Got it once in the end.

(With S)
Jim's asynchronous ppsps with flips (pfpspfsppfsps)
7788289247772 (phzdfpzphhzpp) We used a siteswap generator to find a new 13 beat 6 club siteswap to learn, and randomly decided that one hand has to do pass heff double at some point, to eliminate some boring siteswaps. Got a list of 100 siteswaps and just clicked one that looked like it might be fun. We didn't get a full round, but somewhere between a half round and a full round both starting with the right hand and with the left, so we have seen the whole pattern. Took a while, but it shouldn't be a too difficult pattern once we get past the stage of often forgetting what to do. It's only six clubs. ;) Kidding... I think it's easier than a few 5-club passing patterns I have done or tried, so number of clubs is definitely not everything.

50' --- 3b rev blindf'd. --- a wealth of options to try and get over that distortion:
• , , , exaggerate it then try to come back where it was,
• , , , adopt it and try to control and stabilize it,
• , , , avoid it already at launch,
• , , , vary in any way ( for a change to come ),
• , , , mix it w\ 'slammy' and-or 'towards middle',
• , , , do nothing, just hope for long runs to learn from,
• , , , vary posture,
.. now, tried:
• , , , do within a plane through where the foot-tip touches the ground, ( or knees or vertical underleg ) for orientation,
• , , , to throw (low) over whereabouts I think the incoming ball is.
all in all got 85 throws twice, and 53.
