#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.
#peripheral

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 )

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.

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

So yesterday - even though I'm not through yet with trying everything in question out - already gave, that there's a lot of tricks, I can do looking through the pattern, but not anytime right away ( then not "watching", but "staring at" and missing the soccer game with full focus on the pattern needed ).

- 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 ).
- difficult \unclear yet: ___ .. 3b inv box ( rather: yes, with some practise ) .. 5b casc low ( rather not ).
- refuted: ___ .. 3c casc (spins need constant spotting)

france : australia

contact butterflies - 10 mins - ugly, but valid and okay. bad with weakhand.
contact on arm to arm horizontal - 1 mins - can get it with chest helping, but still awkward, droppy anyway, very difficult anything involving weakhand. ( So: no )
1c flourishes - 5 mins - better with full focus, got a few "over index + thumb" rolls, mostly dropping, arm was in the way for rolls over handback. ( no )




( on river's meadow )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~24 min. ___ One 8 gathers, several almosts. One 7 c + 2 (full-hands-)touches in the rhythm.

#peripheral

argentina : iceland

ball spinning - 2 mins - ___ impossible - need to watch the ball.
1b bbb, or 3b pinball style - 4 mins - ___ pinball: not my thing, balls won't roll. leaning foreward is awkward juggling in an uncomfortable tensed position (esp. shoulders). ___ touches: tried 1b and touches at apex only, which worked well; even leaned back now to have the arms hanging more and the balls touch more against my back and that also worked well. still not really fun. ( no\maybe )
1b catching bbb , rev st , fx , rev bx - 54 mins - ___ routine: rev st -- fx -- a.s.o. weakhd much worse. upto four throws. did without aiming at first. whd still bad (at aiming, at catching, at knowing where the ball lands). makes sense to start a stint with whd only shoulderthrows for calibration. .. it's the weakhand's rev shouldethrows that are worst. fx only went well (always both hands involved), over 10 catches. also rev bx. ___ better now without whd rev st. ___ did another few bbb (throws and catch), shoulder is better trained now from those few minutes; and alternating them with front throws is also an option. ___ #exercise: bend foreward, then do with hanging arms, hands pointing inward to excise with same handholding, but looking. ___ stuck to frontcrosses now, that seem easiest so far, and got upto 16 catches in a row and a rhythm. soon time for this with one more ball. __ great practise, nice fast improvement (well, 1b), increases general bodyawareness in the blind zone behind the back. ( ok )

#peripheral

peru : denmark

3b box - 7 mins - not used to synch, did 3s instead 1s. better when I focussed on aiming the columns nicely straight up. got it fluent briefly, like 12 throws (6 synch pairs), so felt, like this could be very easy, once the moves will be burnt into the brain. .. didn't feel like learning sth new right now, tho, and couldn't really fully focus on soccer. ( maybe )
3b-441 - 65 mins - notably better with asynch 1s and4s, stuck to this for a while; not all stable or fluent, but can go into collects rather than dropping a lot. around 12 to 24 throws, improving. .. .. .. thinking it 4 | 14 now [typing while practising], kind 'a (in a three beat, but) in two movements. #ThinkAs .. .. .. got aware of its alternating pistons' optics now, but orienting on that on the long run takes focus off from getting the Ones well and is therefore somewhat puzzling too. .. .. .. could just do and count now, got upto 36 c cl. ( ok )

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).

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.

# 3 balls, #experimental, #focus, #otu, #technique, 3 ball tricks, 5 balls, 7 balls, 75 minutes

Radar looked like rain would stop soon, but didn't, so i stood under a small roofed area doing 3b.
3b cascade - ~20 min.   Had for a while been wanting to do this: find out exactly when the  c a t c h e s  happen: Like when pulling on the one end of a rope hanging with both ends over a branch, in order to uplift sth tied to its other end, I focussed on the downward movement of the catches imagining I'd be doing the other hand's upward throwing movement with that catch movement of catchhand. In other words: Doing / thinking the throw by the countermovement of the opposite catching hand.   It seemed like the / my throws - in the yet normal pattern - were a bit earlier than the catches, so it felt like for doing as described above, throwhand had to shortly wait, delay a few millisecs (until catchhand got its ball to pull down). Or else - in a higher, slower pattern - I had to catch later for also the throw in question to be later. But I might be completely wrong, as it's unusual and difficult to focus on the catchmovement + other hand's throw at the same time. I did get that clear feeling / impression of ``pulling´´ the throws up with the opposite catch though.   Interesting tweaks of dwelltime and I'm not through with finding out exactly what goes on there and how to use it.
Tried blind a bit, but got too many drops.
3b 52413 - ~20 min.   (4 thrown reachover, so it looks like ongoing cascade)   went well in spite of a few drops.
A few minutes of 3b "fastest", rev--rev--normal--normal.
5b endure - ~20 min.   219, 373 throws longest runs.
7b casc - ~8 min. ( rain had stopped, but it was darkish and didn't feel warmed up well )   A hearty 23 throws run with good focus and rolling well for those two periods was best I could get from scratch. ( rest were bad launches and blunders )   [ daily7b II: 23 ]

# 5 ball tricks, #mentec, #focus, #endupatt, #ThinkAs, 3 ball tricks, 166 minutes

Too rainy, overcast, grayish-darkish, cold, windy outdoors. [ daily7b II: 0 ]

12' - 3b elroll-takes - got upto five or six in a row in a two-count. It's not as presumed yesterday a 423 variation, but indeed maintaining crossing throws(?), the cascade(?), a ``three-beat-all´´(?), (but it's unclear how to fit that roller into s'swap notation).

1' - 3b 524RO13 - fluent (but sometimes a few back to cascade throws in between).

153' - 5b rev casc - started with short controlled runs to find into an endurable pattern - 73 (12'), 99 cl (30'), 109 (60'), 93 cl, 89, 79 cl, 71, [ #mentec #focus #endupatt #ThinkAs ] tried throwing over the whole pattern into the middle upto here, but from now on aiming along the steep sides of an imagined trapezium (with shared flightpoint very high up there somewhere), thus throwing angles with portionned thrust in the first place, only then with secondary focus on right height, 77 cl, 83, 79 cl, 71, 90, 71 cl, 75, 74 throws longest runs.

5b casc varied - 10 min.
7b casc - 40 min.   51, 51 throws longest runs (next best was 45 two or three times, maybe once 47).   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
3b casc varied: piroujoggling - 3 min.   #inventions #exercises - run + keep turning - difficult, but got it with about no/one/two drops per lane.

# 3 ball tricks, 25 minutes

Had no plan, just "juggle" (sth easy with few or no drops, sth fun). Started off with cascade, open for whatever would cross my mind .. it turned out:

15' - 3b backhandclaws ( between index and ringfinger on the back of the middlefinger ) - thrown back to pattern as reverse. Did them in a four-count (swaying out\\in) for about over 50 throws.

10' - 3b `elroll-takes´(? dunno how to call this) = cascade -- roll a caught ball to the wrist/forearm/el -- allthewhile catching and rethrowing next without dropping the still rolling one -- take the rolling ball with the other hand reaching over and throwing it as column, guess it's a 423-variation - could soon do half a dozen of them in a row in a six-count, two in a row in a four- or two-count. Speedy stuff using half-beats.
