# 5-7 balls, 5 clubs, 1 minutes

Juggled well.

Ran 7b for 100 catches in 4 minutes.

Ran 5c for 100 catches on third try. My expectation for 5 clubs is to run 5 clubs for 100 catches to a clean collect. Every time.

5c triples a little painful, considering gloves.

Total practice time: 1 minutes

Location: Full Court Gym

# 7 balls, 5 clubs, 1 minutes

ran 7b for 100 catches on first try; spent another 20 minutes to get 150 catches.

ran 5c for 100 catches on the first try.

new 4c pattern 55244. Easier than 534, more fun to juggle, and looks cooler.

# 5 clubs, 7 balls, 1 minutes

Felt so fat. Like a week ago, I started eating a ton of candy. Eating lots of sugar makes me puff up and feel bad. After warming up today, I had to stop and use the bathroom :(

No juggling since Friday. Even though I felt bad, I juggled well:

Time to run 7b (110 catches): 2 minutes
Time to run 5c (100 catches clean): 3 minutes

Total practice time: 1 minutes

# vision research, 1 minutes

One of my vision research goals is to detect which pattern is being juggled.

Using Keras and Tensorflow, I have been able to determine the pattern that is being juggled with an accuracy of 0.9766667.

The model is only trained with 4 three ball patterns, but it's a start.

# 7 balls, 5 balls, 5 clubs, 70 minutes

Warmup. 15 minutes.

Running 7b and 5c to 100 catches. 40 minutes.

3 clubs in one hand. 12 minutes.

Before juggling on colder days, I do some cardio activity until my hands feel warm when I hold them against my face. I usually do an exercise bike.

# 4 clubs, 5 balls, 7 balls, 1 minutes

I was freezing all day and when I got to the park, I had a hard time warming up. Once I got warmed up, I started sweating really bad. It kept getting in my eyes, because I forgot my sweat towel.

Spent like 30 minutes to get 121 catches of 7b clean. Totally worth it.

Ran 5c for 100 catches after a few tries. 5c is definitely easier than 7b.

Finished with 7531 (quintuple, triple, single, flat) with 4 clubs. Hitting this trick about 1 in 5 now. Still super scary.

Total practice time: 1 minutes

# 6 clubs, 7 balls, 5 clubs, 1 minutes

I warmed up on an exercise bike. This was really helpful. I juggle a lot better when my hands are warm, cold hands have been a problem lately.

Ran 7 balls for 100+ catches (clean) on the first try. Ran 5 clubs for 100 catches.

Did 6 clubs for a little while. Need more efficient practice strategy for 6 clubs.

Total practice time: 1 minutes

# 5 balls, 5 clubs, 7 balls, 6 clubs, 80 minutes

I felt really good today, more confidant than usual. I just got Youtube Red, so I listened to music on my phone while I trained, which I don't usually do. Uninterrupted music is helpful.

Juggling went well.

7 balls: 130 catches (clean)
5 clubs: 100 catches (clean)
6 clubs: 6 catches (clean - while several people were watching)

I accomplished the above in under an hour. Normally I would have left at this point, but I decided to stay and work on some 4 club stuff and 7351. Lots of people watching.

Props looked really good in the sunlight today.

Total practice time: 80 minutes

# 7 balls, 5 balls, 45 minutes

I have found that a short training session geared toward getting to 100 catches with 7b and then 5c is quite enjoyable. This is the format for my short training session (each bullet is about 5 minutes):

  • 5b cascade
  • Warmup exercise from Doug Sayers Video
  • 5b high throws and chases
  • run 7b to 100+ catches
  • 3c tricks
  • 4c tricks
  • run 5c for 100+ catches

Total practice time: 45 minutes
