3-7 balls, 3-5 Clubs, 1 minute

I had a really bad morning, and a bad day at work. I was really frustrated, and I just wanted to go juggle a little bit because I haven't juggled much lately.

After a warmup, I trained 7b cascade with my MMX balls. They are heavier and larger than the Russian style balls that I usually use, and that makes them more difficult to juggle the 7 ball cascade. My goal was 100 catches (of course). I kept failing, for two reasons. About half the time I get a bad launch. Most of the runs with a successful launch ended between 50 and 80 throws. I kept failing and my frustration was snowballing.

The more errors I made, the more frustrated I got. Being frustrated caused me to make more errors.

Then a double amputee walked by. The sun glinted on the shiny metal hooks. My paradigm changed.

Successfully completed a training session with 100 catches of 7b cascade and 100 catches of 5c cascade.

Total practice time: 1 minutes

3 clubs, 4 clubs, 40 minutes

Was hoping to catch the last rays of sun after a nice day, but there were a couple of small clouds above the treetops so I was too late.

No wind tonight, 4c tricks worked better (though not as well as they do indoors).

534 four times and back to fountain
3[43]2

3-club tricks, the same shoulder drops as last time, some siteswap stuff.

Total practice time: 40 minutes

3 clubs, 4 clubs, 45 minutes

Couldn't go to Stockholm for juggling today because I had a sore throat that might mean I have a cold (symptoms means stay at home and don't meet anyone). Boring.
At least the weather was OK, though I still blame the wind for the fact that the 4c juggling didn't work.

Spent too much time trying to get 534534 and back to fountain, I can usually do this...

3c tricks worked better. Did some shoulder drops in 423, also with the 4 as a single. Got the "high triple, synchronous shoulder drops, back to cascade" from both hands.

Two girls watched me for a while. Maybe I should learn how to entertain kids...

I'm gonna miss juggling conventions this summer, but I hope that I will at least be able to get a lot of nice juggling days in Stockholm with my friends. Hoping for good health and nice weather!

4 clubs, Inverted Box, Weave, Flats, 93 minutes

I'm back juggling! My wrist is mostly better, but just to be safe I'm avoiding anything too strenuous like 6b or 5b endurance.

Worked on flats a today, and they felt better than ever :D I forgot just how helpful working with 2 balls and 1 club is.

Also did a lot of 4 club singles. Best I got was about 11 catches, which was a new record for me :)

And I attempted to get my Weave better, though I have a sinking feeling I'm not flowy enough haha

And in my ongoing goal to get inverted box, I practiced inverted boston mess for a while, and got about 3 rounds of it. Hopefully by the end of the summer I'll be able to run the actual pattern haha

Total practice time: 93 minutes

passing, ball passing, teaching, 3 clubs, 30 minutes

Played with my niece (who is almost 8), did some "passing" with 3 clubs, also threw a ball to each other a few times, but clubs worked better.

Taught my sister to pass 5b 1-count and 5c 1-count. Got 10-12 catches in total (5-6 each) on the best rounds. She can get a few catches of 3b cascade, I also showed how to throw clubs and she got to the 2-club exchange.

Total practice time: 30 minutes

3 clubs, 4 clubs, 60 minutes

A little bit of this, a little bit of that.

passing, 60 minutes

(With S, S2, S3 and T)
4-count star
3-count star (outsides)
pps star (outsides)
W-feed on doubles (2-count/4-count, 17 clubs). S3 on one end, the rest of us trying two different positions.
W-feed, 3-count/6-count (17 clubs), we mostly wanted to see that this is a valid pattern, it definitely was correct but we couldn't make it work.
W-feed (normal 2-count/4-count 15 clubs) with walking through the pattern. Everyone walked at least once, but not in the same round.

Total practice time: 120 minutes

3 clubs and balance, 5 balls, 60 minutes

3 clubs and balance: Worked on this a little bit. Mostly focusing on trying to get good flashes and collect cleanly.

5 balls: Practiced going from a 5b cascade to a high throw, then back to 5. Also I started working on making my 5b half shower better. At the moment it’s pretty sloppy, and pretty narrow.

Gonna do some 6b later tonight probably. It’s too hot to write more about juggling lol

6 balls, 39 minutes

60 days of 6: day 5

I started practice kind of late at night, so I didn’t get the chance to write this up. I got to use the tripod though! It made things a lot easier, but I think I’m going to make some adjustments next time. It’s a PITA to have to sort through all those videos. So today, every time I get a good run, I’m going to walk over and heart that video. But other than that, practice was OK. Not great (because it was so humid), but alright. Got in a good run of 6b wimpy, which was surprising since I was practicing inside.


Async: I think I need to spread the pattern out a little bit, and make it higher. Hopefully that’ll decrease collisions.

Sync: got 10 catches which was nice. It’s feeling more stable, until the end when it usually gets a bit wonky.

Total practice time: 99 minutes

3 clubs, 4 clubs, 40 minutes

Well, we weren't really at Eiraskolan for very long, the sports hall was locked and the people we are supposed to call if there are any issues couldn't find the keys...

Went to the area next to the subway instead.

We were 8 people today. :)

passing, 70 minutes

(Still not really at Eiraskolan, but close enough.)

(With S2 and T)
S2 feeding doing Why Not, me and T doing either 5-count popcorn (didn't work) or 5-club Why Not.

(With S, S2, S3 and T)
pspfs Star (simplified Why Not Star) didn't work very well
4-count Star worked
3-count star (outsides)
2-count star
1-count star was difficult but fun for the few passes that we got.

Went to the usual pub for After Juggle Beer.

Total practice time: 110 minutes

5 rings, 6 balls, 23 minutes

5 Rings: So I drove my dad to this place today, and then tried to juggle in some shade by a tree. I warmed up 5 rings for about 10 minutes, and then the wind started to blow really hard :(

6 balls: Thought I was going to be able to film for my 6 for 60 days thing, but 10 minutes later we had to leave cause he was done.

6 balls, 63 minutes

Day 4: 60 days of 6

Practiced outside today. Worked through a pyramid in an attempt to improve my right hand. It went alright, but I’m still struggling. Definitely glad I didn’t cut the practice short at 30 minutes though, because I think the longer grind on the warmups and a better focus on relaxing helped a lot. I tried to focus on making 8 catches using a new technique: focusing on two specific catches and letting the rest go by memory. It worked well, and I think I’m going to continue using it.

There is one other thing that’s been bothering me lately; catching the third ball with my right hand seems to be rather tough. And I’ve been wanting to make russians for a while now, so maybe I’ll make a few that are smaller than my current ones, and give it a shot.

Async: Got a nice solid batch or two. Still working on making it higher, as I think that might help. Also nearly got two rounds of 66661 which was exciting. Also I might have gotten a new pb of 10 catches :D

Sync: Better than ever. Got a new record of 11 catches (dropped the last one). I keep throwing the final two at different heights, something that I think will get better with practice.

Total practice time: 86 minutes

6 balls, 37 minutes

Day 3: 60 days of 6

Decided to practice earlier than usual today, which turned out to be a mistake. First off it was really freaking hot, and secondly if I looked toward the camera, the sun was in my eyes. And I think I got sunburned which kinda sucks. But, I did get 10 catches doing async. I didn’t actually realize I broke my record until I rewatched the video :P The ending wasn’t too clean, but I was happy with the feel of the pattern. Also tried some 6b wimpy and it wasn’t too terrible. I think I might add it to the daily regiment just cause I think it looks cool. So far I’ve been making my practices like this:

* Warm up (stretch, jump around, etc) - 3 min

* Basic 3b and 4b tricks to warm up hands - 5 min

* 3 in 1, 66661 - 5 to 10 min

* 666600, 4b at different heights and speeds - 5 min (sometimes included in the previous)

* filming (till a semi ok run) - usually 15 - 20 min


This doesn’t feel like enough. My 3 in 1s need a LOT of work, and doing a few minutes every day isn’t going to get them where I want them. So tomorrow I’m going to try something different.


Async: Pretty wobbly. And I keep leaning back and too the right. Not sure what’s up with that, but I suspect it has something to do with my right hand being kinda trash.

Sync: I mean I got 10 catches, so yay! Unfortunately I’ve noticed that I’m doing this bouncing thing when I throw the balls. Gonna work on staying still next practice.

5 rings, Inverted Box, N-box, 53 minutes

5 rings: Wasn’t feeling too hot in the beginning. Things were unstable and the pattern felt wobbly. But then I ground through my juggling pyramid, and ended up getting 36 catches!! :D It didn’t feel quite as good as when I hit 20, but it was still pretty exciting.

Inverted Box: Lots of struggle tonight. I keep throwing the 2x forward, so my left hand has to reach out really far. That makes the crossing 3 (I was practicing inverted boston shuffle) go off kilter and the whole thing collapses. It’s frustrating cause I’ve been stuck at this point for a long time, and it hasn’t got much better. But, I like the way it looks, so I must soldier on :( So I worked on….

N-Box: I managed to get a round and keep the pattern going several times. It wasn’t pretty, but that’s something that I haven’t done before. My hand definitely needs to go more out and less up.

Total practice time: 90 minutes
