Spring is a fickle mistress [May. 11th, 2010|10:09 am]
Cold and yucky day out. Started with 40 minutes on the Nordic Track, which warmed me up, but now chilled again. Down to move laundry from washer to dryer, then some juggling practice to warm myself up before round two of work.

The biggest thing with the juggling right now is to remember to keep throwing the balls. Not hanging on when I lunge for one that's a little far away, and not letting them dribble out of my hand. Continual rising arcs.

It's a lot to think about.

So... are you doing the regular "tossing" juggling? or contact juggling like your icon?

And- yeah, i woke up to a picture perfect February morning with a fresh layer of SNOW on the hills around me... (No WONDER my tomato seedlings all died!)

Tossing, but trying a bit with contact - haven't made a breakthrough there yet.

according to the BF, a lot of contact juggling really is tossing the ball just as regular juggling is - only you're tossing it ~just~ high enough to clear your fingers, so it looks like you're just rolling it. but you really are tossing it about. and a lot of the 'rolling the ball here-and-there on your body' is really moving your body under the ball. *shrug*

I need to concentrate on that for a while. Thanks!
