# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 75 minutes

Some of the regular stuff

Also did/tried:
Over the top (flat front) on singles or doubles
Tennis
Backcrosses on doubles, every fifth throw, every third throw... Throws between them were singles.
Transition from async fountain to sync fountain (didn't get it today)
A backcross throw at the same time as a crossing double (only with 2 clubs), this was difficult, especially when the backcross was from the left hand.
Cascade on 1½ spin

# 3 balls, 10 minutes

Outdoor lunchtime juggling! A bit too windy, though... I had to wear my coat sometimes to not get too cold.

Cascade (varied)

# 5 balls, 5 minutes

Flash. Got it 5 times! Happy, because this was with my MMX balls, not the small beanbags that I usually use for 5 balls.
Some catches needed a little help from the other hand, one or two were caught between hand and body. Maybe I should get some standard beanbags that are a bit bigger than the ones I have practised 5 with, but a bit easier to catch 3 in one hand than the MMX balls.

Total practice time: 25 minutes

# 5 balls, 11 minutes

Flash. Today it only took 3 minutes to get it 10 times. :)

7 catches: only got it once. Common problem: Ball number 4 too low (the throw before the first catch...)

# 5 balls, 15 minutes

Flash. It took me 8 minutes to get ten successful flashes. Realised that I have a bit more time than I think to throw the balls.

Tried 7 catches. Got it once in the beginning, this time I'm sure, so, maybe new PR, but I think I have got it once before. :) Tried to get it one more time but failed. A few attempts felt pretty close, though. Most common problem: balls landing too far in front of me.

Total practice time: 32 minutes
