# 4 clubs, 3 clubs, 110 minutes

Very low motivation level today, took many short breaks, got frustrated when dropping too much.

Did some old 3c tricks that I haven't practised much lately.

4c fountain singles felt OK, considering I have never done very many catches of that.

55550 (doubles) didn't work.

# 5 clubs, 10 minutes

Trying to do a flash. Only caught all 5 clubs once, and even then the last throw was bad (too low)

# passing, 30 minutes

(With A)
5c 1-count

(With S and S)
2-count/4-count feed. New member(?) S had never done passing before today, but tried 4-count and 5-count with S before I joined them.

# 3 clubs, 30 minutes

Motivation level even lower than earlier today.

Tried to think of a new trick to try. Ended up trying to teach my hands to "auto-correct" wrong-ended catches by doing 3c cascade on 1½ spin + half flip.
+ some other 3c juggling

531 with the 3 as a backcross. Once and back to cascade worked most of the times, twice didn't. Common problem: lefthanded triple landing too far back (almost on my right shoulder).

Flash.
Got it four times! I'm pretty generous with what counts as a successful flash so far... If I catch the clubs in the right order and not obviously in the wrong hand it is OK, last club may be caught with both hands. The first flash was the best (on my second attempt), but there were several failed attempts that were good too.

# teaching, 5 minutes

Showing G some good practice patterns for 4 balls.

# passing, 50 minutes

(With A)
6-count. Was planning to do 4-count at first but started by letting her just receive a pass, juggle and throw to me whenever she wanted to. Noticed that she did 6-count every time so I thought it might be a good starting point, it also has the advantage that we could color code it. Got a few passes.
Wonder if we should try 5-count next?

(With J)
3-count with tricks
Why Not, only got a few passes.

# teaching, 1 minutes

Visited a slackline meeting in Humlegården, trying to recruit a club member or two to our juggling club since I knew some people there juggle too.

Probably spent about an hour teaching different people to juggle either balls, rings or clubs.

Approximate time juggling when I was not teaching, passing or trying slackline.

Flash.
Got it on the third or fourth attempt! And it was one of my better flashes. Tried to get it once more. Only got one that wasn't good (last catch close to the floor, strange angle on the club, caught between the clubs in my left hand and the ones I held in my right hand).
