Rest Day.

My abs are sore. I have been training lots of 4 in one hand, and I think that really hits the abs. The level of fatigue that I am experiencing seems consistent with exercise. I do feel tired a lot. It has been cold and rainy for the last several weeks and I think that contributes to my fatigue.

This seems like a pretty common tend in the NorthWest. On average, people around me are ten pounds heavier in February than they are in August. In wintertime, the foods are so rich and the days are so short. In summertime, the days are 16 hours long and it's possible to recreate outside that entire time.

I currently weight 192. I have been at this weight for quite a while now. I feel this is the maximum weight that my frame can sustainably support. It's a good weight for juggling. Going forward, I feel that it's okay to lose weight, but it's imperative that I don't gain any. Muscle atrophy is something that I am okay wight, but muscle hypertrophy is not going to work for me.

3 balls, 4 balls, 5 minutes

5 balls, 15 minutes

Flash. Until I had got it 10 times.

6 catches. Only got it 5 times.

A few attempts at 10 catches, mostly to try to feel the rhythm of a 5b cascade. Not even close... I think my best attempt was 8 throws, 7 catches.
