# 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

# vision research, 4 clubs, balance, 1 minutes

I hurt my elbow training handstands on Wednesday. Did light juggling today because it still hurts pretty bad. Went from 4ftn clubs to 3cas+bal back into 4ftn (for the first time). I was really happy about it until I saw the video. It looked really sloppy. Definitely a cool trick though.

Worked on juggling data set too: https://sites.google.com/view/jugglingdataset/juggling-tricks

# 7 balls, 5 clubs, 50 minutes

I was juggling at a park, and a lady with and a shy girl approached me. The girl asked if she could juggle the clubs, and I was like, "Do you want all three?" I handed them to her, and she juggled three club singles well and attempted under the leg (doubles), but failed. Impressed.

Worked on 753 and 75751. It was overcast, and I got dizzy when I tried those tricks. Ran 7b and 5c for 100 catches to collect.

# April Fools, 1 minutes

Working on April Fools Video:

The idea is VR JUGGLING LESSON. This is a series of videos where the user downloads the videos and watches them in a vr headset. The videos explain basic tricks. After a trick is shown several times, the person wearing the VR headset mimes the actions of the juggler in the video, except without the juggling balls. After watching the trick and miming the trick, the person takes the VR headset off and tries to preform the trick with juggling balls.

I have been watching Wes Peden and Gatto 6 club videos in VR. Technique is clearly displayed, and VR has a higher effective resolution than traditional video. VR is a promising possibility for teaching skills like juggling, hand tool use, tying knots, etc... VR is a good teaching tool for any skill that requires a lot of manual dexterity.

So why is this a joke?

Spoiler: I can juggle with my eyes closed!

I am going to pretend to be a beginner juggler. I will play the video where I put on the VR headset and then:

  • watch the trick
  • mime the trick without balls
  • preform the trick using juggling balls with the headset on*


*This part is the joke. Normally, the person learning juggling would wear the VR headset while watching the trick and miming the trick, but take the VR headset off before preforming the trick with juggling balls.

New 4 club routine:

  • Transition from async to sync and back

# 5-7 balls, 3-5 Clubs, 75 minutes

Felt good; juggled well. Established lots of PR's on tricks in the 200's and 300's of catches range.

Ran 5c for 201 catches to collect. First time collecting a run that long. I finished with a new five club trick. I landed it twice. It goes:

  • 10 throws of 5 club doubles (Start with RH)
  • One club thrown really high with the RH (4x, I think)
  • Collect two clubs in each hand
  • Go back into the cascade starting with a double with the LH
