3-7 balls, 3-5 Clubs, 140 minutes

There was a "Bill of Rights Bash" happening in the park.

08: 00 Arrive and start training session. Another group of two individuals is setting up a pop-up canopy. I trained my normal 7 ball and 5 club training routine. I ran 7 balls for 240 catches (Outside PR) and 5 clubs for 160 catches. Good training session.

09: 00 I move on to training my routine. Several more people arrive. I notice that one of them is open carrying a pistol in a hip holster. The gun is being carried openly, and there is no attempt to conceal the weapon. Around this time I also noticed that one of the people setting up the event had a holster in between his shoulder blades.

10: 00 More people arrive, some are waving flags that are yellow. A black flag appears briefly. Roughly 50% of the people were openly carrying guns. One person had an AR-15, and the rest of the guns were pistols.

11: 00 More people arrived. I saw a gun that was tucked into the waistband of a pair of jeans.

Total practice time: 140 minutes

3-7 balls, 5 clubs, 1 minute

Training went well, and a few people were sitting on the grass watching me.

I finished my training session with a short run of 5c triples (to collect). While I was walking back to my bag to pack things up, one of the children watching me said, "I wonder what he is going to do next." The statement was not directed toward me, but I replied anyway.

I said, "I am going to go eat dinner, see you later."

One of the parents in the group said, "Good job."

It was super awkward for me because it felt like she was congratulating me on my plan to eat dinner.

Also ran 7 balls for 21 catches (to collect) for some dude's insta.

3-7 balls, 60 minutes

Ran 7 balls for 100 catches to collect on the first try. This usually takes more than 5 tries. I did better than usual because I trained 7777716 before going for 7 balls. Also, rest day yesterday is helpful for endurance.

Total practice time: 60 minutes

3-7 balls, 3-5 Clubs, 78 minutes

I was training in the basketball court when a man and a child entered. The child was wearing a MAGA hat. I glanced at the child's hat, because wearing a baseball style hat while playing basketball is dangerous. I then glanced at the man. We made eye contact and he thumbed his nose at me.

This series of events affected me psychologically, until the timer on the Routine Builder app went off. I tapped, 'NEXT' on the app and went on to 5 ball cascade.

Felt good, juggled well.
