**5b casc varied - 15 min.****9b flashing - 35 min.** Five times 7 gathers. Once 9 in reach, but only 6 g (fumbled on 4th last catch too many milliseconds, so the nice ones after dropped). #SoL - really need to do ``relaxed´´ (as would go), meaning: not put any too strong emphasis on any pair or sequence of launched throws; but do ``hearty´´ height on *every* launched throw (or pairs) just a bit of ``good´´ thrust, and that well evenly distributed. ( No need to try to do (insanely) *very* much higher than 7b, as it's only two balls more, and *not* double height or sth required (7x7=49, 9x9=81 in theory, not accounting for ((only two more)) dwelltimes) )**5b all up 180° - 15 min.** Positively said: got it two times into at least five rethrows; bad: nothing clean, all into drops, not bak to stable acscade, nothing to collect.

**5b casc varied - 10 min.****5b fastest - 7 min.** Again, stuck at this. .. Usually I do this only a bit to nimble up wrists and fingers and racketing, speediness, without going for long runs.

I think, then I did well to not even try

#conditions - powdery soil on the plated cobbles acted like talkum, so had to rub-roll the balls clean on my shirt all the time.

100' - 5b rev casc - After four times 57 throws, got an 87 th longest run. - Getting the right howto enduring feeling still isn't obvious and always needs a while (~1h) to fully find back into. .. Weakhand tends to not scoop well to the outside; and aiming well is into smaller regions (left up \ right up), I think, than e.g. normal cascade - less room for bailout of bad throws -> more precision needed; and constantly *anticipating* [ #mentec ] where last ball up will be on its highest point when already throwing next needs either that special (deep strong right) focus, concentration, just that *mindset*, or else a snapped-in pattern flowing by itself, which all I haven't yet reliably automized.

**3c basics, tricks - 25 min** 124, 179 doubles. 32, 21, 34 triples. After simply thinking *423* as *234*, got 6 consecutive sides of it np (earlier could only do *42333*), #mentec #SoL. *34530* Twice one round back to cascade plus an attempt on second per run. Got a run with four rounds of either *4414* or *441* with cascade in between. Feels great to be gettin' somewhere with three clubs now; it's a gorgeous feeling when a *5* in triples, forgotten right after release, lands to the point when spotting it later.**3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 57 min.****5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 8 min.** 61 throws 7-high. 151 th 5- to 7-high.**5b 56752 - 43 min.** A 7 sides' clean run.

5' - 3b inv box - #SoL - got a few consecutive faint ``active´´ *2*-s (thinking it *423*) with stronghand - guess when making these extra times (for both hands) another ball, it would make it that ``3b cascade with a 1b lid´´ pattern ( https://gfycat.com/ChubbyDecentKinkajou [ *noslowerdna / Quinn Lewis* ].

Perfect #conditions .. mostly sunny, 16°-17° Celsius, mild breeze just strong enough to keep early year's moskitoes away, a bit fresh too partly from breeze or under a cloud, which in turn freshened me up. **3c basics, tricks - 27 min** 124, 133 doubles. 21, 24 triples. Three times one round of *34530* back to casc (2 str'hd, 1 weakhd). Two times one sequence of *4414* from casc to clean collect. Also tried casc with bottleneck (catches &) throws as exercise for flat fronts (that aren't easy as continuous throws), but these aren't any easier.**3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 90 min.****5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.****5b all up 180° - 13 min.** Early, once into cascade throws caught clean - couldn't confirm within the rest of this stint.

Currently doing that [

First I warmup on that challengin pattern by calibrating first four throws only until I get them well enough to dare the whole flash \ launch. (~5-10 min)

Then (upto ~10-20 more min), I get chaos up there: either well-timed, but spread astray out of reach, or most balls within range of reach, but badly spaced and -timed, or all well-timed, well-spaced, well-aimed, but overall way too fast. In that phase I get like 5 gathers and less. So, at least then I got sth up in the air to work with:

I will try doing near the body (feels like throwing right above me), to stay within front plane well, or I will try speedier from wrists, or I will try to get my crescendo launch well-spaced. Bailing out any of such flaws that occur, I will get 6 gathers (in that session a first success!?) a lot and casual 7 gathers (success.). (~15-30 min)

And during this latter part, I can after a while get a phase where 8 gathers are possible (success!).

And that on and on since about a year or sth. Got the flash clean once before with small balls, but not with normal size yet.

I am not ever "hoping", but I listen how my arms, forearms, wrists feel, how speediness, spacing and aiming are okay or not, always keen on feeling that confidence of launches feeling ripe for next step which is doing "unleashed" and fire everything up in a rhythm, relying on good throws. I think of the height (and visualize it for aiming), I think of the front plane to be done within, I think of the angles (the visualized vector at release even), .. I'll then "empty the hands" no matter how many balls they might keep.

And that's the phase, where I can go for rethrows, .. that is, ignoring any drops, to rethrow as many balls as possible, and I got like upto 13-15 throws (success!!), with like 6-7 (.. you know --> success.) gathers or so, which feels really great and much different from flashing exactly "nine" balls to a collect - the pattern then also feels even 'bigger', higher, speedier even, yet not hasted, not "too fast", but "well in its right rhythm", and I then know, that nothing that I flash to an awkward collect is the final pattern that will stay up, but only those rethrows give an impression of the jugglable pattern. Any well thrown rethrow is worth tens of flashes and opens the door to the feel of the continouus pattern.
