Two new girls at the practice today! They could both do 3b cascade.

Helped them with clubs. S got 5 catches.

Taught 5b 1-count (they could do it together after a while).
5c 1-count will take a bit longer, but S could get a few catches when passing with me.

(After 45 minutes they went to try dragon staff and poi.)

Custom juggling balls , 90 minutes

Got enough smaller juggling balls made to get back into fun numbers attempts.

The 5 white ones are really nice for numbers stuff. Not so much for 5 ball, definitely prefer sportco for that. But yeah.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/522629508629528576/632548070185369600/CAM01538.jpg

Got 12 catches with 4 in one hand in a really nice pattern on my right hand (weak hand) and 11 in my left. The right hand just has some kind of programmed ability to get a ball in the air without thinking too much. Hard to explain but it is good for numbers and high throws if the pattern isn't being ran long. Probably developed this habit from starting even numbers with my weak hand forever.

Got 36 high throws with 5 ball shower with my left hand. I have a PB of about 50 from years ago, think with these numbers balls I can beat that. I'll keep experimenting with different fabrics colors, making balls by hand is somehow rewarding.

I also noticed I fatigue slower with these. They were 90g instead of 140g (the sportco bags) so as I suspected, short sessions were mostly the result of heavy beanbags.

Pittsburgh, 3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 105 minutes

Good sessions today. One for an hour, one for 45 minutes.

Highlight was (8,8)(4,4) for 3 rounds (qualify) into a 6 ball sync fountain qualify. I only got 10 throws before the trick, was hoping to qualify, but it's okay. It's a big improvement.

31 catches of 7 ball. 20-25 catches twice in a row. Once each practice, so twice today. Good day for 7 ball cascade.

Qualified (6x,4)* overheads.

5 ball siteswaps felt good. I had good visibility today. I have glasses so it feels super important. Need to try contact lenses...

663 into a round of 88441 back into cascade. Should try this one more.

2 rounds of hi-lo shower with 5 balls. I can do more if I try, for sure.

3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 70 minutes

My wrists are a little sore and the session was...mixed. Overall good though. I got a new PB with 6 ball sync fountain! 58 throws, 56 catches. Well, 57 catches but I dunno if the last catch counts if you miss the other sync one. Anyway, felt awesome!

7 balls I got 21 catches 3 times, but I couldn't run it longer today. It's okay.

6 ball async felt good. I got over 40 catches a couple times.

5 ball 84445 for 2 rounds a few times.

Lots of 6x,4 variations.

771 for 5 rounds back into cascade.

Tried 5 ball overheads some, couldn't get 20 catches but got like 18 a couple times. I have a PB of over 50. Man I wish I lived near other jugglers, it's the key to getting better for me.

50+ catches of 5b reverse cascade on first try. Same with both half showers.

Still, need smaller beanbags... I am close to cracking and just splurging on a set of 10 small ones. Cause I'm having ups and downs with making my own. 2 have torn (I fixed them) and they are all just a bit too underfilled. Seems impossible to fill them to the brim unless I get some kind of equipment the pros use, but I don't even know what that would be lol.

Pittsburgh, 3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 60 minutes

Good session, though was a little tired/worn out from a bike ride.

28 catches clean of 7 within about 10 attempts

40+ throws with 6 async and learned a sync to async transition. Got to get better at it though.

Sync got like 40 throws once or twice.

5 ball siteswaps were okay.

I really need to practice multiple times a day and earlier in the day so my energy is good. Still, good session...

machine, 1 minute

New PR for 5 ball cascade is 9m30s. I think this means that the Pantograph Juggler can juggle the 5 ball cascade for longer than I can myself. Where I am actually juggling the balls.

I'm starting to think about the John Henry story. If endurance juggling competitions stick to a base pattern (like when O. Snir set the 5b world record), it would be possible for a machine to win. I would like to see a competition between a real-juggler and a juggling machine.
