# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 95 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:

Fountain, doubles
53 once and back to fountain
534534 and back to fountain, got it once from each hand.

525 on doubles, starting with 3 clubs in my right hand. Best round: 7 throws, 4+1 catches.

3 clubs:
531 with the 5 as a double, first once and back to (a low and fast) cascade, then with fewer 3s before the next one, then just 531. New trick for me. Rhythm was not even, but it got better towards the end.
55500 on doubles, once with hand clap, from 522 (slow cascade) and back
55500 on doubles, once with hand clap, from a low cascade and back was a bit easier. Also did a few consecutive rounds, have not done that before.

1up 360 (on a triple) is starting to work, dropped a few times before I got the first one for today, but after that I think I got about 7 of 10 attempts. I just need to keep calm and throw a good triple before turning around.

the club knocking thing, tried both hitting the body and the handle

55500 on triples, once with hand clap and back to cascade

# 5 clubs, 5 minutes

Trying to get the start of the pattern. Best attempt: 5 throws, 3 catches. The last two throws are often really bad, either colliding or landing far away from me.

# mixed objects, 5 minutes

Ball, ring, club
Cascade
423 with active 2, once and back to cascade, tried with all the different objects but not sure if I tried all combinations from both hands. Worked ok after a little bit of practice.

Total practice time: 105 minutes

# 5-6 balls, 3-5 Clubs, 90 minutes

Last night I dreamed that I was juggling outside and one of my balls rolled into a lake when I dropped it. In the dream I dove in after the ball. I am ill with a head-cold and had taken some cough medicine. That always makes my dreams vivid.

Even though I was feeling quite sick, today was an unusually nice day for February, so I decided to go to the park to juggle outside in the sun.

I had a minor bike crash on the way to the park, but was able to recover without hitting the ground.

Juggling was smooth though. None of the balls rolled into the lake.

I started with 5 balls. To warmup I juggled a 5 ball cascade a different heights. Once I was warm, I did some siteswaps and ran my short 5 ball routine several times. Switching to 6 balls, I hit the async to sync (and back) transition 17 out of 20 times. Felt good.

Next was clubs. 3 clubs was terrible. I don't really do three clubs very often. 4 clubs went well. I have juggled outside around 400 times, and I am always amazed by how much people are impressed by 4c async/sync transition. I had some really good runs of 5 clubs. Mostly, I ran 5 clubs to collect because there were lots of people watching. I don't think that I have ever had that many people watch me before.

Total practice time: 90 minutes

# 3 clubs, 3 balls, 4 balls, mixed objects, 30 minutes

3 clubs:
Warm up
backcrosses, every 3rd throw
(4,2)(4x,2)*

3 balls:
45123 with active 2

4 balls:
Fountain
552, best attempt: 5 throws, 5 catches.
Fountain as fast/low as I could

...did a few attempts at 5b flash too, but never even managed to throw all 5 before catching the first one. Worse than with clubs, though of course I only try with clubs when the ceiling height is better.

Mixed objects:
Ball, ring, club.
Cascade
423... or rather (4,2)(4x,2)*, easiest with the ball as the crossing throw, hardest with the ring crossing.

A bunch of kids on the other riverside had the idea to chorus (to be louder on that distance) lol, what I were doing, what I were juggling with ("white balls"), and they chorused, it looked like with eggs :o)

# 7 balls, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, #mentec, #endupatt, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 155 minutes

5b warmup, casc varied, shower - 15 min.   Clean flash of shower; and 6 and 7 throws' attempts of it to collapse. #technique (focus) - Firing up to the same not all too high spot.   Also some "fastest" here already again.
5b 52567 - 25 min.   Bad; was happy with only a 5.th side clean at last.
7b casc - 110 min.   Never got that wheel turnin'; hardly ever got a well-shaped top of pattern to go on from .. guess my main fault that kept me from finding my pattern and connecting to its top well, was, that I wanted too much and did too tensed most the time.
[ #technique, #SoL, #mentec(?), #endupatt ] - Maybe, for the pattern to snap-in, once it's up and finished launching, you have to do a lot of things - if not everything - right in just one instant .. do an extra switch into "keep-up"-mode, which is a hurdle to take to get it rollin'.
Got 43, 41, 43 cl, 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 45 ]
5b fastest - 5 min.

# 5 ball tricks, 5prop mix, 115 minutes

10' - 5 mixed props, 4b1c - With a 14 rounds run went over to 3b2c   [ n.t.s.: 9 tcl½, 14 tcl½, ]

5' - 5 mixed props, 3b2c - Over 3 rounds, but no fourth full collected.   [ n.t.s.: 3 tcl½½, 3 V, ]

100' - 5b rev casc - 83 (too high, too narrow, slaving to pattern), 63, 55, 71 cl, 68 cl, throws longest runs.

# 7 balls, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, 5 balls, #theory, #ballproperties, 115 minutes

Now that its notably warmer outdoors, I can definitely say that my MMX1 have become much softer again after, during winter in the cold, they were feeling almost like the hard Babache's Bubble Balls that I used to juggle with. - #ballproperties
5b warmup, casc varied, shower - 5 min.   A few attempts on shower again; got a flash at last by throwing all up as fast as I could to a spot high up there, but not too high in order to not need much longer dwelltime and effort for little gain of even more height. [ #theory ? #``optimal perfect throw´´ ? ]         
7b casc - 100 min.   An hour not over 39 throws, many 35 th.
#SoL #technique - I tuned on my launch, which I regularly get problems with all of a sudden, and today found out, that I sometimes tend to not scoop the first throws, not throw from rather the middle. Focussing on that, I then got too narrow patterns in turn.
No idea, how I got out of that puzzle, but then finally found nimbleness, speediness, smoothness, found automized good launches again, found my pattern with focus well connected to its rolling top, and got acceptable runs (in matters of result & feel for pattern's top) with 43, 41, 51, 41 cl, 45 throws.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
In between got a   quadruplex backcross -+- triplex (front) from launch to clean collect.
5b "fastest" - 10 min.

# 5 ball tricks, 5prop mix, 3 ball tricks, 125 minutes

25' - 5 mixed props, 4b1c - Not over 9 rounds today.     [ n.t.s.: 8 V, ii 9 tod, ]

97' - 5b rev casc - 57, 59, 69, 61, 58 cl, 54, 69 cl throws longest runs.

3' - 3b inv box - chilloff. awkward, (needs more reasonable amounts of time).

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 80 minutes

Circus class was cancelled, but the hall was still booked and I had brought my own clubs so I went there anyway.

Kick-up from 3c cascade to 4c fountain did not work as well as last time, took about 10 attempts to get it once.

Did 2 consecutive double backcrosses and back to cascade, starting with my right hand. Didn't get it starting with my left.

Tried to "throw" a club down to land in "kick-up-position" on my foot, of course helping with the foot... Not while juggling, just with one club. Got it to stay on the foot a few times, not without touching the floor though.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #anatomy, 150 minutes

t-shirt weather, good session
5b casc varied - 15 min.   incl. a few bad attempts on 5b shower; and lately always been doing a bit "fastest", too.
5b 52567 - 20 min.   Last run was best run with 6 sides clean collected.
7b casc - 105 min.   52, 53, 43, 41, 43, 43, 63, 51, 41 cl, throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]
.. a slight ache had come up in mee back's muscles on stronghand side at height of chest below shoulderblade [*], so preferred to finish the session with some ..
5b fastest - 10 min.
[*] - by all the muscles getting their 'turn' to ache, I'm over the years learning what they're used for .. this region at the back is for higher forced throws from arm too far in front :o| #anatomy, this is particularly interesting for non arm or shoulder muscles also involved in throwing.

The usual, but less backcrosses.

Had not done head rolls in a while, but doing one with my right hand and back to cascade worked on most attempts.
