# 4 clubs, 45 minutes

Have been juggling way less than I am used to lately, don't feel that motivated to juggle in the livingroom. Happy that it is Thursday.

Warm up

Fountain, doubles
534534 and back to fountain
53, tried to continue. Doing too bad triples.
Columns, asynchronous. First attempts.
Sync fountain, doubles

# passing, 70 minutes

(With S and T)
11c feed, S feeding in pps, me and T doing 3-count, all passes 4.5p. Didn't get many passes but it felt doable.
10c feed, 3-count / 6-count with walking. Felt a lot better than last time, and worked better too.
10c Bruno's Nightmare, just spent the last minutes on this pattern, we got my walk and halfway through the next one a few times. Feels doable, too. I really like this pattern, but also want to do it in 2-count/4-count... But S says the 3-count version is easier and I am getting used to it too (though we mostly practiced the feed).

Total practice time: 115 minutes
