#peripheral

List, outcome, after trying everything out:
- okay: ___ .. 3b casc. .. 2b-01414 .. 3b freestyle, fastest, reverse-mix, (single) back of hand, (single) claws, (single) penguins, (single) backcrosses ( short spotting required so far ) .. 3b 4 2=ELCURL 3 .. 3b elcrook stalls ( 3_THROW_INTO_STALL 3 3 3_WITH\WHILE_2nd_BALL_STALLED 3_TAKE_STALL_REACHOVER_INTO_COLUMN_THERE ) .. contact butterflies (str'hd) .. catching bbb, fx, rev bx, (except w'hd st) .. 3b box (synch, try a bit only until it `clicks´) .. 3b-441 (great!) .. 3b roll-to-elcrook-and-flick .. 3b roll-past-wrist-and-take-up .. gorilla flicks.
- difficult \unclear yet: ___ .. 3b inv box ( rather: yes, with some practise ) .. 5b casc low ( rather not ).
- refuted \adjourned: ___ .. 3c casc (spins need constant spotting) .. contact anything incl. weakhand .. 1c flourishes (rather with looking) .. ball spinning (needs watching the ball) .. pinball (awkward, mabe at most with 1b learning).

costa rica : serbia

trying out more ideas out of my 3b repertoire today:
3b casc "roll-to-elcrook-flicks" - 7 mins - ___ jus' perfect in a 4-count. difficult in a 2-count so far.
3b casc "roll-to-el-and-take-from-there-while-rolling", resp. 2b (for w'hd) - 4 mins - ___ same, 4-count okay. Even makes sense to put one ball away for weakhand.


(river's meadow)
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~35 min. ___ Not 8 gathers. Two launches nearly worth 9 c, all spotted, landing `slowly´, bad catching with full hands. Once 12 throws.

#peripheral

germany : mexico

3b casc gorilla flicks - 19 mins - ( = with fingers bent inward (almost fist), then flick up with back of fingers ) ___ took a while, unstable, throwing, more than flicking, until I got it fluent and better flicking; still liable to become droppy. Okay so far as an option, but does a bit not seem to make sense to have to do it with handicap.

Am through with trying everything out, so now can do what I've been keen to redo what was most fun and-or most fluent (elcurls, 441, catching blind behind).

2b elcurls ( in a 02ELC2T33 way ) - 25 mins - ___ Not trivial. Around 5 in a row (and in a rhythm). Sometimes my chest helping with the curlover or inhibiting a drop. Needs strong(er) concentration.
3b-441 - 4 mins - ___ .


(sport's parking)
5b casc varied - ~5 min.
7b casc - ~48 min. ___ 55, 49, 49, 61, 60, 57, 53, 43, 52 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 61 ]

#peripheral

brazil : switzerland

3b-441 - 76 mins - ___ worked myself up from several early around 33 throws runs to later several over 50, then 66 and 63 throws today's best. Didn't very much get to trying nicer, wider Ones, but rather went back to stable on failing those.
2b-01414 - 4 mins - ___ Not trivial, still, in the beginning, a bit puzzling to find into.
Rather felt like dulling the trivial ..
3b casc - 12 mins - ___ I think, one longer 7-8 or more minutes run (if not there might have been a forced collect amidst?).

Total practice time: 254 minutes

# 9 balls, 7 balls, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, 3 heavy balls, #peripheral, 1 ball, #blind, 3 balls, 3 ball tricks, #ThinkAs, 1 club, 350 minutes

#peripheral

So yesterday - even though I'm not through yet with trying everything in question out - already gave, that there's a lot of tricks, I can do looking through the pattern, but not anytime right away ( then not "watching", but "staring at" and missing the soccer game with full focus on the pattern needed ).

- okay: ___ .. 3b casc. .. 2b-01414 .. 3b freestyle, fastest, reverse-mix, (single) back of hand, (single) claws, (single) penguins, (single) backcrosses ( short spotting required so far ) .. 3b 4 2=ELCURL 3 .. 3b elcrook stalls ( 3_THROW_INTO_STALL 3 3 3_WITH\WHILE_2nd_BALL_STALLED 3_TAKE_STALL_REACHOVER_INTO_COLUMN_THERE ).
- difficult \unclear yet: ___ .. 3b inv box ( rather: yes, with some practise ) .. 5b casc low ( rather not ).
- refuted: ___ .. 3c casc (spins need constant spotting)

france : australia

contact butterflies - 10 mins - ugly, but valid and okay. bad with weakhand.
contact on arm to arm horizontal - 1 mins - can get it with chest helping, but still awkward, droppy anyway, very difficult anything involving weakhand. ( So: no )
1c flourishes - 5 mins - better with full focus, got a few "over index + thumb" rolls, mostly dropping, arm was in the way for rolls over handback. ( no )




( on river's meadow )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~24 min. ___ One 8 gathers, several almosts. One 7 c + 2 (full-hands-)touches in the rhythm.

#peripheral

argentina : iceland

ball spinning - 2 mins - ___ impossible - need to watch the ball.
1b bbb, or 3b pinball style - 4 mins - ___ pinball: not my thing, balls won't roll. leaning foreward is awkward juggling in an uncomfortable tensed position (esp. shoulders). ___ touches: tried 1b and touches at apex only, which worked well; even leaned back now to have the arms hanging more and the balls touch more against my back and that also worked well. still not really fun. ( no\maybe )
1b catching bbb , rev st , fx , rev bx - 54 mins - ___ routine: rev st -- fx -- a.s.o. weakhd much worse. upto four throws. did without aiming at first. whd still bad (at aiming, at catching, at knowing where the ball lands). makes sense to start a stint with whd only shoulderthrows for calibration. .. it's the weakhand's rev shouldethrows that are worst. fx only went well (always both hands involved), over 10 catches. also rev bx. ___ better now without whd rev st. ___ did another few bbb (throws and catch), shoulder is better trained now from those few minutes; and alternating them with front throws is also an option. ___ #exercise: bend foreward, then do with hanging arms, hands pointing inward to excise with same handholding, but looking. ___ stuck to frontcrosses now, that seem easiest so far, and got upto 16 catches in a row and a rhythm. soon time for this with one more ball. __ great practise, nice fast improvement (well, 1b), increases general bodyawareness in the blind zone behind the back. ( ok )


(on river's meadow)
5b casc varied - ~10 min.
9b flashing - ~33 min. ___ 12, 11, 11 throws, 8 gathers, 12, 11 throws.

#peripheral

peru : denmark

3b box - 7 mins - not used to synch, did 3s instead 1s. better when I focussed on aiming the columns nicely straight up. got it fluent briefly, like 12 throws (6 synch pairs), so felt, like this could be very easy, once the moves will be burnt into the brain. .. didn't feel like learning sth new right now, tho, and couldn't really fully focus on soccer. ( maybe )
3b-441 - 65 mins - notably better with asynch 1s and4s, stuck to this for a while; not all stable or fluent, but can go into collects rather than dropping a lot. around 12 to 24 throws, improving. .. .. .. thinking it 4 | 14 now [typing while practising], kind 'a (in a three beat, but) in two movements. #ThinkAs .. .. .. got aware of its alternating pistons' optics now, but orienting on that on the long run takes focus off from getting the Ones well and is therefore somewhat puzzling too. .. .. .. could just do and count now, got upto 36 c cl. ( ok )


(on sport's parking)
5b casc varied - ~6 min.
7b casc - ~54 min. ___ 54, 52, 42, 43 cl throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 54 ]

#peripheral

morocco : iran

( cf. https://www.jugglingedge.com/forum.php?ThreadID=3301 : )
3b casc - 21 mins - ___ 13 drops :o( one forced collect. longest runs upto 4½ mins. ___ balls crossing the monitor aren't a problem, as, first, they're fast, second, balls are too near to cover both eyes' view. ___ never intended any reverse throws, but my hands did reverse bail outs ``all by themselves´´; also saved a few collisions back to pattern. __ seemed to run best when fully focussed on the game (ugly game, many fouls), felt like walking then.___ when my wades got tensed from standing straight, bent my knees a bit or swayed from one foot to the other.
overall a good exercise, .. chills, reveals basic flaws (it was weakhand mostly failed).



5b casc varied - ~10 min.
9b flashing - ~20 min. ___ My minimum once 8 gathers.
7b casc - ~25 min. ___ 45, 55 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 55 ]

#peripheral

portugal : spain

3b inv box - 8 mins - too droppy, possible, an option, but a bit too challenging for the moment, can't really watch the game.
3c casc singles - 12 mins - short runs to collect, still drops, spins need spotting it seems. unapt for peripheral (for me).
2b-01414 - 9 mins - tricky .. landed in a mix with °423°, didn't click yet. had to focus on the pattern, even though plain looking literally at the game, missed ronaldo's 2 : 1 and couldn't have told, how it happened.
[short break]
more 2b-01414 - 14 mins - ___ much better, got it very low, fluent and speedy and caught Costa's 2 : 2 and Nacho's 2 : 3 with one eye or one and half.
5b casc - 16 mins - ___ hardly over a qualify, best runs around 14 catches. An option, if I manage to get used to doing while looking through the pattern and downward on the tv set, or to respectively position my tv higher; else not.
3b casc, freestyle, div - 16 mins - ___ intended to chill with a smoothly stable 3b cascade, but from a few reverse throws that unintendedly ``happened´´ - and I let it happen and go on - got into a reverse + normal mix, then into freestyling including back of hand, claws, even backcrosses are possible with a brief look for spotting their catch ( like when waiting for a corner or a free kick ). Then stuck a while with 4 2=ELCURL 3 which worked a couple 'a times, but got many fails after that. Also cascade with an elcrook-stall is possible, though also can get droppy.

[ to be continued, roughly scheduled: ]
contact butterflies
contact arm to arm horizontal
1c flourishes
ball spinning
1b bbb, or 3b pinball style
3b box
3b-441
..

overall a bit unsatisfying doing ``handicapped´´ all the time and droppy a lot, so ..
.. so, felt like really juggling a bit for epilogue.

5b casc - 5 mins - ___

a bit groggy now of all that switchin' and hoppin' from this to that, changing indoor\outdoor spot and back, plus documenting in between.

# joggling, 3 balls, 3 clubs, 4 clubs, learning, practising, 17 minutes

Special short training for things that I do worst probably
• 5 min of joggling 3b
• learning juggling 4 clubs (it is impossible probably, because every time I throw it and it fells down it hits my wrist and it is too painful)
• practising 3 clubs tricks

Clubs are probably my worst props - I mean like I can´t master it at all, maybe because I have received them as my last juggling prop and because my trainings are too short.

# 3 balls, workshop, 1 minutes

This wasn´t like real juggling, I was teaching few people from karate to juggle 3 balls, so I have showed them how to do it and few tricks

Total practice time: 18 minutes

# 3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls, 3 clubs, 3 rings, 4 rings, 5 rings, freestyle, learning, practising, routine, 49 minutes

Tomorrow is my big show! I am so scared.. You never know what weather will be like - if it will be too windy, I can´t juggle rings, clubs, scarves, oven gloves.
And it was very bad idea to run yesterday 11 km, my right arm is in pain.
Okay, so, what I was doing all the time:
• 3b - basic tricks, learning blind juggling, juggling on the tummy, forked cascade
and everything other were just basic tricks + practising (or even learning) pancakes with 3r

Total practice time: 49 minutes
