#peripheral

columbia : japan

2b-01414 - 16 mins - ___ Would like to improve the Ones, wider, more slammy, but anything but the blunt pattern will much more easily fail. ___ Started off with higher 4-s, which did control on the pattern well. ___ Then also fancied to get into active 0-s by merely clapping my hand at my body or - even more simple - briefly snap my hand closed, but also that was puzzling and completely brought me out of tact. ___ A few 3-s that didn't belong there. ___ Still unstable, busy with the ground-state and getting it fluent running ``by itself´´.

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~35 min. ___ Once 8 gathers. Around seven times 11 throws, best were into 7 gathers, and a nice pattern spotted landing with 11 c in sight, but collapsed on catching.

poland : senegal

2b-01414 - 70 mins - ___ Dared a go on 3b-0161616, but was impossible ( way to high 6-s required that I didn't even get indoors and from scratch). ___ Again, difficult to get active 0-s, so preferred to simply endure the pattern as is. Got 50-80 throws, then longer runs of ½ a minute, one maybe near or above a minute.

5b casc varied - ~5 min.
7b casc - ~40 min. ___ One 87 throws run (into drops), then had to fight for two more runs longer than 40 throws, 41 and 43 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 87 ]
#peripheral

russia : egypt

Had a preference for 3b-441 or 3b-inv box or simply dull & endure an easy 3b cascade, which I chose the upside down box of ..
3b inv box - 65 mins - ___ Longest runs: roughly 160 (200?), 120, 120, 132, 152 throws. ( longest ever of this, iirc having crouched around 30 throws, maybe 50 formerly )

Total practice time: 246 minutes

#peripheral

sweden : southkorea (shitty game, lots 'a fouls)

2b - 0 2T 2ELCURL 3 3 - ~50 mins - ___ Over five, but not ten rounds, I think.


3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~47 min. ___ Three times 8 gathers. Two times 11 throws into 6 gathers.

#peripheral

belgium : panama

Missed one goal merely staring at the tv, but not actually "watching", but obviously then all concentrated on the pattern. Got Lukaku's goal well later.

3b inv box - ~47 mins - ___ Seems, I had not been using the thumbs well last time; got it better after `activating´ them. Not all straight horizontal throws, but slightly bowy. Longest runs of 103 and 116 throws. __ (Doing the asynch 423 variation ..) I am into active 2-s now, but Thrown Twos were too puzzling yet, so to start off, tried to simply give the held ball a short squeeze (\squish) as an ``action´´ on it in the right tact; that was still difficult being one more action in a then pauseless tact, but that's where to go on from.


Started 7b from cold, but felt very strenuous, so preferred to do a short warmup with 5b ..
5b casc varied - ~5 min.
7b casc - ~40 min. ___ 41, 45 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 45 ]

#peripheral

tunisia : england

3b el-roll-flicks - 38 mins - ___ Did them comfortable in a 6-count, got near ten rounds. About 5 mins for weakhand doing a hold, the roll-flick, then duplex back to pattern.
3b el-stall-then-takeup - 31 mins - ___ Around five per run.
3b takeup-while-rolling-to-el - 7 mins - ___ Under five per run.

#peripheral

List, outcome, after trying everything out:
- okay: ___ .. 3b casc. .. 2b-01414 .. 3b freestyle, fastest, reverse-mix, (single) back of hand, (single) claws, (single) penguins, (single) backcrosses ( short spotting required so far ) .. 3b 4 2=ELCURL 3 .. 3b elcrook stalls ( 3_THROW_INTO_STALL 3 3 3_WITH\WHILE_2nd_BALL_STALLED 3_TAKE_STALL_REACHOVER_INTO_COLUMN_THERE ) .. contact butterflies (str'hd) .. catching bbb, fx, rev bx, (except w'hd st) .. 3b box (synch, try a bit only until it `clicks´) .. 3b-441 (great!) .. 3b roll-to-elcrook-and-flick .. 3b roll-past-wrist-and-take-up .. gorilla flicks.
- difficult \unclear yet: ___ .. 3b inv box ( rather: yes, with some practise ) .. 5b casc low ( rather not ).
- refuted \adjourned: ___ .. 3c casc (spins need constant spotting) .. contact anything incl. weakhand .. 1c flourishes (rather with looking) .. ball spinning (needs watching the ball) .. pinball (awkward, mabe at most with 1b learning).

costa rica : serbia

trying out more ideas out of my 3b repertoire today:
3b casc "roll-to-elcrook-flicks" - 7 mins - ___ jus' perfect in a 4-count. difficult in a 2-count so far.
3b casc "roll-to-el-and-take-from-there-while-rolling", resp. 2b (for w'hd) - 4 mins - ___ same, 4-count okay. Even makes sense to put one ball away for weakhand.


(river's meadow)
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~35 min. ___ Not 8 gathers. Two launches nearly worth 9 c, all spotted, landing `slowly´, bad catching with full hands. Once 12 throws.

#peripheral

germany : mexico

3b casc gorilla flicks - 19 mins - ( = with fingers bent inward (almost fist), then flick up with back of fingers ) ___ took a while, unstable, throwing, more than flicking, until I got it fluent and better flicking; still liable to become droppy. Okay so far as an option, but does a bit not seem to make sense to have to do it with handicap.

Am through with trying everything out, so now can do what I've been keen to redo what was most fun and-or most fluent (elcurls, 441, catching blind behind).

2b elcurls ( in a 02ELC2T33 way ) - 25 mins - ___ Not trivial. Around 5 in a row (and in a rhythm). Sometimes my chest helping with the curlover or inhibiting a drop. Needs strong(er) concentration.
3b-441 - 4 mins - ___ .


(sport's parking)
5b casc varied - ~5 min.
7b casc - ~48 min. ___ 55, 49, 49, 61, 60, 57, 53, 43, 52 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 61 ]

#peripheral

brazil : switzerland

3b-441 - 76 mins - ___ worked myself up from several early around 33 throws runs to later several over 50, then 66 and 63 throws today's best. Didn't very much get to trying nicer, wider Ones, but rather went back to stable on failing those.
2b-01414 - 4 mins - ___ Not trivial, still, in the beginning, a bit puzzling to find into.
Rather felt like dulling the trivial ..
3b casc - 12 mins - ___ I think, one longer 7-8 or more minutes run (if not there might have been a forced collect amidst?).

#peripheral

morocco : iran

( cf. https://www.jugglingedge.com/forum.php?ThreadID=3301 : )
3b casc - 21 mins - ___ 13 drops :o( one forced collect. longest runs upto 4½ mins. ___ balls crossing the monitor aren't a problem, as, first, they're fast, second, balls are too near to cover both eyes' view. ___ never intended any reverse throws, but my hands did reverse bail outs ``all by themselves´´; also saved a few collisions back to pattern. __ seemed to run best when fully focussed on the game (ugly game, many fouls), felt like walking then.___ when my wades got tensed from standing straight, bent my knees a bit or swayed from one foot to the other.
overall a good exercise, .. chills, reveals basic flaws (it was weakhand mostly failed).



5b casc varied - ~10 min.
9b flashing - ~20 min. ___ My minimum once 8 gathers.
7b casc - ~25 min. ___ 45, 55 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 55 ]

#peripheral

portugal : spain

3b inv box - 8 mins - too droppy, possible, an option, but a bit too challenging for the moment, can't really watch the game.
3c casc singles - 12 mins - short runs to collect, still drops, spins need spotting it seems. unapt for peripheral (for me).
2b-01414 - 9 mins - tricky .. landed in a mix with °423°, didn't click yet. had to focus on the pattern, even though plain looking literally at the game, missed ronaldo's 2 : 1 and couldn't have told, how it happened.
[short break]
more 2b-01414 - 14 mins - ___ much better, got it very low, fluent and speedy and caught Costa's 2 : 2 and Nacho's 2 : 3 with one eye or one and half.
5b casc - 16 mins - ___ hardly over a qualify, best runs around 14 catches. An option, if I manage to get used to doing while looking through the pattern and downward on the tv set, or to respectively position my tv higher; else not.
3b casc, freestyle, div - 16 mins - ___ intended to chill with a smoothly stable 3b cascade, but from a few reverse throws that unintendedly ``happened´´ - and I let it happen and go on - got into a reverse + normal mix, then into freestyling including back of hand, claws, even backcrosses are possible with a brief look for spotting their catch ( like when waiting for a corner or a free kick ). Then stuck a while with 4 2=ELCURL 3 which worked a couple 'a times, but got many fails after that. Also cascade with an elcrook-stall is possible, though also can get droppy.

[ to be continued, roughly scheduled: ]
contact butterflies
contact arm to arm horizontal
1c flourishes
ball spinning
1b bbb, or 3b pinball style
3b box
3b-441
..

overall a bit unsatisfying doing ``handicapped´´ all the time and droppy a lot, so ..
.. so, felt like really juggling a bit for epilogue.

5b casc - 5 mins - ___

a bit groggy now of all that switchin' and hoppin' from this to that, changing indoor\outdoor spot and back, plus documenting in between.

4b (2b) - 10 min. 66161, catastrophe --> 2b-01414 fast, then pretty high --> back to 4b got maybe 5 or 6 caught to collect. 56702 went and felt great, just like a slow version of 534 - very apt as "good for" the latter.

# 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 ball tricks, 2 ball tricks, 250 minutes

Doing most of my winter schedule for indoors.
2b 'drop-offs' - 7 min.   One (rather passive) hand always up, only dropping off. The other (rather active) hand throws high columns and hands these same columns over to 'drop'-hand (at that hand's level), then catches the last dropped off ball low to do next column with it. Sort of Statue of Liberty, but high balls are handed over (instead simply dropped).  
3b freestyle; 52413 - 5 min.   (reachover 4-s as described earlier)  
3b freestyle; rev casc; ellrollers to skip up - 7 min.   led to: 3b consecutive 3.rd beat my ellrollers to a skip up - 20 min.   I can do ellrollers to skip up almost anytime and half well aimed, but with stronghand only. Doing an ellroller to skip up with weakhand takes much longer and more concentration, so in a cascade, I catch two balls with stronghand to have plenty of time for weakhand's ellroller + skip, then throw as multiplex the two held balls into that skip landing ( 3 3 3 2 3_ELLROLLED+SKIP [34] 0 3 3 3 ). So, I tried to get these done consecutively on every like 3.rd beat (on same ball), each hand doing different. Got three consecutives with stronghand-weakhand-stronghand. Gotta & wanna work on that to get it somewhat fluent.  
3b single under the arm - 10 min.   Three variations: caught & thrown normal, with backhand or as penguin. I can do it with penguins in 3-beat making the pattern look like sprung, that ball doing sort of 'bottoms'.  
3b single reachovers - 10 min.   Consecutive 3rd beat reachovers (and clawed) seem like they could be a mills mess variation.  
3b single wide + 423 - 10 min.   Single very wide throws take longer flight time which can be caught up with by e.g. doing a 423, or by e.g. racketing the ball back into the pattern with like no dwell-time.  
3b more ellrollers + takeaway - 5 min.   = in cascade, a ball caught and instantly rolled towards ell slowly, but, while rolling, taken away with the other hand to instantly be thrown from there (all the while going on cascading the other balls).  
3b single backhand claws - 5 min.   Forked behind middle finger or behind middle and ringfinger on every 4.th beat. With stronghand only. As outside throw clawing next ball after.  
3b single penguins; single bx; single half-contort. - 13 min.   (just to have them done)  
3b single bb(behind back) - 15 min.
5b endure, easy, fast, fastest - 45 + 33 + ~65(?) min.   One robotic run very very stable, snapped in for many periods. Pattern just a bit over head-high, thrown mainly from wrists, underarms just sort of 'following', elbows, i think, slightly away from body, i think also, with shoulders involved for tuning.   Longest run counted 363 throws.

2b, 3b s'swaps with 4-s and 1-es - 20 min.   2b-411, okay.   2b-14140, not better 'n yesterday.   3b-441, 48 throws (thrown 1-es, not given over, but not smashed).   Think, I'll leave all these at that.   Some 3b-52413 with reachover-4 as crossing throw following the 5 before.   5b endure - 100 min.   Didn't get anything > 320 throws. [ dailyLongestRun5b: 250 ]   5b single bx - 20 min.   Once or twice 2/run - didn't find into yesterday's good timing.

2b, 3b s'swaps with 4-s and 1-es - 32 min.   2b-411, got it okay after a while.   2b-14140, got that one pretty low & fast but no chance to ever add a 5 and upgrade to 3b-51414.   3b-441, not so easy .. got three or four periods at last.   5b endure - 43 min.   451, 611, 843, throws runs. Getting longer runs with less recovering fights. [ dailyLongestRun5b: 843 ]   5b single bx - 25 min.   Nine times 2/run, once 3/run.
