# Mostly full session, 50 minutes

Continuing to feel fatigued...trying to make my last practice before rest day count. Didn't do anything spectacular.

# 4 clubs, 90 minutes

Warm up

Fountain, doubles. Got 199 catches. Not a new PR but close.
534534 and back to fountain. Also tried to continue but didn't get far...
Gallop rhythm double single
Sync fountain, doubles. Didn't work well today.

# passing, 60 minutes

(With S)
Jim's async ppsps with flips (pfpspfsppfsps). This is now the pattern we start with when not saying anything... Probably not the "default passing pattern" for most people. ;)
Odnom (9647772)
psphpzphz
phpspsh, today I didn't do the wrong throw too often, I'm starting to get the pattern. Most mistakes were just bad throws.
7c 3-count
5-count popcorn, with tricks/variations. I didn't do anything more advanced than switching between 3.5p 3 3 4 4 and 3.5p 3 3 5 3 on my side of the pattern.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 133 minutes

9b flashing - 33 min.   An early 8 gathers (5th attempt). Five 7 g. No pattern good enough for rethrows.
7b casc - ~100 min.   59, 45, 45 cl throws longest runs. Rest smaller-equal 41 t. Smooth, nimble, easy as five, right after doing 9b, then slowly by slowly more and more tensed, trying, partly forcing, then got it a bit better towards end again.   [ daily7b II: 59 ]

# Mostly full session, 75 minutes

Oof, starting to feel the effects of so many days of consecutive practice and other exercise. That said, still made some progress on #FISC, almost getting a single 2x to be over the entire pattern. It will happen!

Also back to practicing #dots. I think that'll be a video by the end of November.

Need to start thinking about Cleveland Circus Fest act.

Harder to get good juggling spaces now that classes have started again. I'll need to make a schedule of when my usual places are free.

Got another flash of #FISC with a gap. It's starting to get easier.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, ball passing, 40 minutes

Lunch break juggling

Warm up

4c fountain
534534 and back to fountain

45123

Some other 3c juggling while talking...

Ball passing (with L):
5b 1-count, got at least 40 passes (20 each). We could also juggle while talking about other stuff today, so there were some rounds where I didn't count the passes.

Also did a few pass-throws with 1 club.

# 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 55 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
Sync fountain

Siteswap 5 as doubles:
55500
50505
525
55550
...didn't work... Tried a 5c flash anyway but failed.

# passing, 60 minutes

(With S and J)
Feed 3-count/pps with walking
10c 2-count/ 4-count feed with walking. I don't do good triple passes so it worked better for me to do a double to myself when walking
Roundabout (because we wanted to do something that works for the last 4 minutes... Didn't quite get it running though. )

# 7 balls, 82 minutes

7b casc - 82 min. [ daily7b II: 46 ] .. next best were a few 41 t runs. Overall awkward, mostly too tensed, rather "trying", finding into pattern, than "juggling", but `not all that bad´. Too short obviously.

# Full session, 60 minutes

HUGE DOPAMINE RUSH! It was a good practice session for a few reasons, but the main one: I got a flash of #FISC (fully inverted sprung cascade) with a gap! That's where you do (6x,2x)(2x,6x)(0,2x) with the 2x above BOTH of the 6xs. There is/was lots of doubt whether #FISC is actually possible for human hands, and this is a big step toward doing it. Ah. So happy.

Also went from #SC to #ISC for the first time today, and managed to repeat that a couple times. AND got a flash of #663bbth (663 with the 3 blind behind the head). Starting to finnagle some of these medium-term goals into fruition. =D =D =D

Flash. It took me 11 minutes to get it 10 times today (with lots of failed attempts between the flashes)...

...but it only took 2 more minutes to get 6 catches once. :)

# 7 balls, #mentec, 9b flashing attempts, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 239 minutes

9b flashing - 88 min.   Twentysix(!) times 7 gathers. Several 8 g in reach. Two 8 g gotten. Very few rethrow attempts, one good one: 13 throws. Sometimes I do: "First two or four throws rather too wide than narrow!" (cos too narrow as usually happens is sort of `granted´ anyway). Whole stint felt great again.
5b 56752 - 19 min.   Rather bad, into 9th side to collapse, an 8th side clean, a 7th, all fought for, tensed.
7b casc - 128 min.   43, 49, 45, 43 throws longest runs. A few nicely rolling runs. But mostly not doing smooth, nimble enough - [ #mentec ] guess, the thing is, when doing with unleashed wrists, you give away control at first and I have to awarely actively decide to now do wristy as should and go through re-seizing control (get the aiming well) doing that way; unwristy is simply the intuitive way that happens when not thinking about it or not noticing or focussing on sth else (e.g. top of pattern).  [ daily7b II: 49 ]

# Mostly full session, 55 minutes

Back to campus! Party. Some good 7b runs, shoulders were a bit sore (maybe from #HLAIB yesterday?)

Getting some good runs of #ISC. Still not perfect, but getting better. Trying to do transitions in and out. #SC to #ISC is surprisingly difficult for me.

I'm liking the idea of throwing what looks like an inverted 2x, but chasing it down and stopping it with a fork after catching a different ball and turning that into a true 2x. IMO, forks are super underappreciated. They are sometimes the fastest way to make a catch. I like that they become a tool to make things possible, rather than exist for their own sake.

# 3 balls, 4 balls, 27 minutes

I told L today at work that I had done 6 catches with 5 balls, and said "Lets see who gets 30 catches first; me with 5 balls or you with 3"... So now I better practise my 5 balls. ;)

# 5 balls, 16 minutes

Flash. Took me 10 minutes to get 10 successful flashes today (with failed attempts between them). Common problems: the last two throws too low. The last throw landing too far in front of me. Balls hitting the ceiling.

Then went for 6 catches. Got it once and stopped after that. Very messy.

# 3 balls, 4 balls, 30 minutes

Thought maybe I should learn to juggle 5 balls after all... It might help me learn 5 clubs.

Warm up

# 5 balls, 11 minutes

Flash. Got it 10 times within 6 minutes! That's pretty good, considering I had only done two 5b flashes before.

Then went for 6 catches. Got it once, stopped after that. New PR. :)

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 185 minutes

9b flashing - 62 min.   Eighteen times 7 gathers (two of which 8 g in reach).   Two times 8 g.   12 and 14 throws launches.   Seems so feasible, feels so greedy and often looks and feels structured now.
7b casc - 113 min.   47, 59, 67(! long not had so much), 47, 43, 59 cl, 45, 44 cl throws longest runs. Really got it well again today. Even tried a few catastrophic 9-s: all up-s and °9955° into ultimate collapses.  [ daily7b II: 67 ]   (wet meadow and balls towards end)
5b fastest - 10 min.   One longer run >40 throws, but not so low (nose to head-high, throwing from lower chest).

One more thing I lately noticed: [ #anatomy #technique #posture ] - when doing pretty high throws with hips counter-wiggling to shoulderbelt via torus, I can feel small muscles along my spine and when they're sore; doing with slightly bent, thereby stabilized back gets completely rid of that (if needed). I'm not sure, where that force then lands .. guess hips (or now the whole stabilized torus) still wiggling, but less(?), then give that motion down to legs, knees, feet and stance(?).

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 195 minutes

( humane temperatures those last days, not so breeding warm anymore; looks like, after spring, the second part of the best time of the year for doing outdoors, fall, is ahead )
9b flashing - ~50 min.   Ten times 7 gathers, one of which I lost a caught ball when catching next (8 g almost).   No 8 g, but gorgeous rethrows: 10 t 6 g. 12 t. 14(? don't think so)-15(?)-16(?) throws.
5b 56752 - ~10 min.   Very bad, not even 6 sides. Didn't do "until", but prefered to move on to ..
7b casc - ~135 min.   (41 cl, 41,) 47, 43, 51 throws longest runs. Overall okay stint; started off bad, like from cold; then had a hurdle at about 35 throws; then got longer runs, but tensed; but also had a couple of good runs with good focus on controlling the pattern by its top well (but rather somewhat too tensed and not all smooth & swift). Also did very high and very low & fast just one or two attempts each again, when I didn't seem to get anywhere (seems to work, i think it felt better after that, but can't tell for sure). [ daily7b II: 51 ] One run went into reverse cascade that I could keep going for about one-two periods.

# 7 balls, 55 minutes

7b casc - ~55 min.   45, 45 cl, 47, 47 throws longest runs.   Klutzing at first with a `strange attractor´at 27 throws (a few clean ones too), suddenly got also smooth feelgood runs. I mostly focussed on swiftness, right height-speed ratio, rhythm rather than only later on pattern's top, which wouldn't (then) snap-in well. I am also lately noticing a drift into doing too wide and (unwantedly) higher and higher, which I remember to have had some control of last fall. So, maybe, I should really consider exercises of the kind (pull a high pattern down, try going from narrow to wide and vice versa, even if it's chaos when not getting a "pattern" at all in a so-so phase).   I don't remember when exactly, but I did one or two attempts each on very high and very low & fast, that didn't even give a "run", but maybe that `gauged´ soas I then got that better part of this session.   Good unit.   [ daily7b II: 47 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 243 minutes

9b flashing - 80 min. Ten times 7 gathers (three of which could possibly have become 8 g). One 8 g. A few rethrows - went for some a few minutes (else wouldn't have gotten any).
5b 56752 - 20 min. Upto once 8 sides to collapse.
7b casc - 73 + 70 min. 50 cl, [break], 49 throws longest runs. Tried "easiest" a lot; forcing for result after that didn't really make it happen. [daily7b II: 50 ]
