Trying to do a flash. Wasn't a good day for this, gave up after lots of club collisions and sometimes not catching a single club.

3 clubs, 5 minutes

Cascade on half-spin. Not easy. Got 12 catches the best rounds. Always started with the same hand (which matters since it's not symmetric)

534 once and back to fountain, this is so much more difficult with balls than with clubs (I mean, probably not for real, but for me, due to lack of practice)

5 balls, 10 minutes

Flash, until I had got it 10 times. Took me longer than it should.

Bruno's Nightmare
Combining different lengths of Bruno's Nightmare into a longer pattern. First we tried going from 9-beat to 7-beat to 5-beat version, then we came up with a 19-beat pattern with 9 passes with each of us walking once. A bit "boring" that the 3 of us don't do the same thing, we figured we should have came up with a pattern with 15 passes instead so that we change roles (as well as sides and hands), but we didn't do that today.

9 balls flashing, 7 balls, 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 rings, #StagesOfLearning, #propcare, #conditions, #jugglingSpots, #injuries, 147 minutes

Stiff neck on one side from a sudden reachout for a ring yesterday.

One day 30° C (not muggy), sunny. Forecasted 2-4 bft were 0-2 bft at my spot - so way more moskitoes than expected - downright the wrong spot then, should be under bridge or roof.

21' --- 5r --- Awkward, tedious handling, picking up, flicking up. Forgot to mention, I'm throwing the large rings first. --- They're simply made of pipes; ends melted on a heating plate and stuck together. --- Near giving up (took to long), 5 c cl at last.
9' --- 5b ≥9-high --- 91 c cl.
59' --- 9b --- i 8 gathers.
15' --- 5b °34567° --- ~3 rds.
43' --- 7b --- (≤46 throws).

made two new rings - before even warming up, tried \ went for ..
17' --- 5r (diff' sizes) --- #new #SoL --- Difficult start with more rings (not balls) left in throwhand ; worked on the first two throws for a while; was near giving up \ adjourning, when I realized, the 3rd throw would also be a difficult yet-another-ring-left-in-that-hand throw.
Somehow got it by holding the rings with flat fingers to flat thumb and throwing from between the fingertips, or so. So 5 throws after a while were a success.
Soon after, at last, 5 c cl °yo°.

Wonderful weather but moskitos disturbing when little wind.
