3 clubs, 20 minutes

I really wanted to go to juggling practise in Stockholm today, but I don't want the fever that kept me home last Thursday to come back so I had to skip it. The cold is not over... Haven't been to work all week, haven't juggled either until now, so I just felt I had to juggle at least a little bit.

Took it really easy and tried not to raise my pulse too much. Lots of short breaks, and switching to doing something with just one club for a minute or so.

club balance, 3 minutes

Just one of the things I did when just doing something with one club.

mixed objects, 2 minutes

ball, ring, club

machine, 210 minutes

I set up the incline plane juggling machine to juggle three balls. It ran for 3h3min. I stopped it because the camera ran out of space. Need to find a way to make the video interesting.

Maria

3 clubs, 4 clubs, 100 minutes

Warm up

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
534 four times and back to fountain
Sync fountain, doubles

3 clubs:
Cascade on 1 1/2 spin, worked OK.
Backcrosses on doubles: Once and back to cascade, every 3rd throw, twice and back to cascade. Maybe doubles is easier than singles... S have been saying this since I started trying, but I have barely practiced it on doubles. Singles I can practice at home.

passing, 60 minutes

(With S)
We asked E and D (who don't pass much) to give us a 6-object siteswap not containing any 1 or 3. E said 567, so we showed how that looks as 4-handed siteswap.
972 was difficult, but after a while it worked well enough for us to ask E if he could figure out which siteswap we were juggling. He got it on the second guess, with a few hints.
972 vs 978
7c 2-count singles
Gallop pattern "330", or right hand doing pass pass zip.
"330" vs "534" (or Long Beach Popcorn, or right hand doing single triple double-self)
Gallop pattern "42333", or right hand doing pass pass self pass double-self. Just a few attempts... I didn't catch the double very often.

Total practice time: 160 minutes

5-7 balls, 3-5 Clubs, 55 minutes

I walked to my juggling spot and tried to juggle, the sun was too bright and I forget my sunglasses. I walked home and got the sunglasses, and then I was much more comfortable.

I haven't juggled for a whole week because the gym has been really busy, and I came down with a cold on Friday.

In spite of being sick and training in 50 degree weather, I still managed 100 catches of both 7b and 5c.

Total practice time: 55 minutes

3 clubs, 35 minutes

Warm up

Backcrosses:
Every 3rd throw
Two backcrosses, back to cascade
Two backcrosses, 3 regular throws, 2 backcrosses, 3 regular throws. Got it on less than half of the attempts, I believe I was better at this a couple of years ago, but haven't done it in a while.

(4,2)(4x,2)* with a thumb roll on the first 2. (Like 423, but singles and the same height on all the throws.) This worked OK.

...and a little bit of some other stuff. Ended with a few attempts at cascade on half-spins, but couldn't do it. I didn't drop much, but got many clubs in the wrong end and had to go back to regular cascade to fix it. I believe I have been better at this, too. I guess I should do low ceiling stuff a bit more often.
