# 3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 5 clubs, balancing, 90 minutes

4 clubs: 82 catches

5 clubs: 7 catches
Any tips on how to not have to run forward to catch all the clubs? I guess it's just lack of time/bad throw technique (?). Some 4 club exercises would probably do the job. Any tips?

Hit myself in the eye with a club and made it bleed while warming up with 4 clubs. Hurt a lot.

# balancing, head bounce, 3 rings, 4 rings, 5 rings, 6 rings, 7 rings, 8 rings, 120 minutes

Very speedy ring session today. Most things worked, despite having been driving for 4 hours by the time I got to the sports centre. No real standouts, but very close to a 3 up in flats, and 10 catches of flats with 4 rings so I guess they were going well. 8 felt very good too, and I think the launch of 5 from my left hand is improving.

Need to remember not to juggle balls at Romford. The lighting is shit- I'm not sure what's wrong with it, there's definitely enough and it's not glaring but balls just seem to disappear. As such 360s were abysmal but overheads and shower went pretty well. Tried connecting a behind the back pass to a 3 up 360 in 4 ball shower but didn't quite get it. Felt nice though- will do it outside this week. Not terrible attempts at 9 at the end, but the less said about 6 and 7, the better.

Total practice time: 240 minutes

Went through club and ring stuff. Nothing worked particularly well apart from 6 clubs, which felt like it was getting somewhere. Tried 75 properly for the first time and got 8 good throws out a couple of times.

# club passing, combat, ring passing, 5 balls, balancing, 5 clubs, 7 balls, head bounce, 420 minutes

Always a good convention, Bath. Arrived a bit late due to a unintended diversion to Bristol, but got passing with Cameron straight away on arrival.

Had already printed a sheet of things to work on and blasted through it pretty quickly. My tomahawks and treblas were working well, shoulder throws still crap though. Got a 6 up 360, but found it tricky enough that the 2 stage seems overly ambitious at the moment. Transition into back to back was harder than expected with straight early doubles (one each).

7 club b2b really nice, got 80 passes easy then tried some tricks. Singles was hard, as were 360s. I got 7 club singles into me doing 5 clubs with a bit of work and a lot of correcting, naturally Cameron got it first time.

8 club singles felt a bit strained, but got the 4 up 360 in just a few tries, and wasn't massively far off the 8 up. Got a couple of good runs of 8 b2b too- probably beating our pb, but wasn't counting. 8 and 9 on triples felt better than ever- my triples feel almost controllable now.

9 worked much better when we both took a step back from each other. No super long runs, maybe just over 40 passes. Tried singles (dropping down from a few passes of doubles). Flashing 9 back to back felt vaguely plausible in triples, not in doubles. 10 clubs was pretty good- probably just over 5 passes each (11 or 12 total), but not counting and not clean.

Combat started well, then I lost to a couple of people I felt I should have beaten. Total was 8 won 5 lost, but then lost in the quarters again. Felt like my opponent had learned how to deal more effectively with my attacks since we met in the qualifiers. Cameron went on to be 2nd though, which was good, and I felt I played well on the whole.

Did some work on Chopabout with Cameron and Elina before and during the games, but took part in some. 4th-ish in club balance (bloody seal roll again), reasonable in 5 ball endurance (bloody halfshower again), 3rd in 5 club endurance and maybe joint 3rd/4th in 7 ball endurance, but that one was hard to call. Did head bouncing in random trick endurance which I felt was one of the hardest tricks there. Had to stop because I was moving about too much and I thought I was going to trip over the spectators.

Ring passing with Varkor before dinner- just 2 counts. 8 and 9 rings went well- beat our records and moved on. 10 rings improved massively when I slowed down lots and sorted out the angle on my passes- beat our record with at least 15 passes each. Tried 11 to finish, Varkor starting running 5 and me starting cold with 6 like the pros seem to do with clubs. Don't think I was doing my selfs high enough because he was getting the 3rd pass too early. Very flashable though, and possibly easier than 10 in some ways.

# balancing, head bounce, 3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 9 balls, 110 minutes

Another ball session before work. Bit windy so didn't bother with most of the balance or bounce stuff. 3b ass catch needs more work. Did a cool 5511 overhead behind the back thing but didn't get the 4b version. 3 rounds of 552 bxx, 5b bxx good. 97531 good- maybe 7 rounds but felt right. 5 up 180 and 360 good. 6b generally crap, but worked out some problems with 756. 7b felt nice, but was randomly droppy today. (8x,6)* better for focussing on the 8xs. 9b at the end went very well due to keeping the height up with the rh throws- especially the first one. Only spent 5 min on it, but got 10 catches and 11 catches clean, which equals my pb.
