# 5 balls, 7 balls, 60 minutes

While training 5b overheads, I was hit in the eye with a ball. My eye hurt and watered a lot. I had to stop juggling for several minutes. It was pretty frustrating, but I did some jumprope and then moved on to 7b.

Ran 7b for 100 catches (to collect) on the fourth or 5th try. Working on 7b endurance has really helped my control with 7b.

Didn't sleep well last night, and didn't really feel well today. Juggle anyway, why not?

I have been working on overheads a lot lately, and tried 5b overheads today. Some good runs, around 11 catches (I'll call that a PR and log in records).

After juggling a lot of 7b cascade the last two days, my arms were tired. After a few runs of 7b cascade I rage quit and threw the balls like an angry child. Probably should have skipped 7b. all together. Need more optimal training structure.

Got a few blind catches with 3. Not too hard but need a lot of work.

5 ball 3-ups are becoming pretty consistent.

66661 with 1 behind the back is getting good.

68 catches of 7.

(8x,6)* felt great today, because the start was cleaner (not throwing balls backwards).

Got 8 rounds without much trouble, eventually managed to get 9.

10 rounds of 774 (didn't take very long).

40 rounds of 8040 in both hands. It got sloppy towards the end.

**5b casc varied - 5 min.****9b flashing - 30 min.** Five times 7 gathers, two of which 8 g in reach. Also precious rethrows again of the 100% reasonable kind, not only "up, no matter what". Again felt like something goes there.**5b 56752 - 30 min.** Alltogether few 5th (?! only!), 6th, 7th sides and one 8th side, all mostly to drop(s). (In fact really a lot of 4 sides clean only, let alone early fails). Only towards end of stint, dared to do really hearty
