# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, #conditions, 255 minutes

#conditions - Forecast said warm, so I expected another hard day with moskitostrying to kill me in a common effort of stuffing and blocking my nose, ears, eyes and mouth, and expected weary form. But it were pretty good conditions, very few moskitos (guess due to meadow having been mown where I was) and not airless at all, almost agreeable in the shade, just sweaty, needing my wet towel a lot, not full fresh form.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 35 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Two times 7 gathers. Very few attempts on (upto once 4) rethrows. Got swiftly a few nice patterns in the air, though.
5b 56752 - 25 min.   6th and 7th sides clean, an 8th side to drop(s).
7b casc - 140 min.   47, 43 cl, 46, 61, 43, 55 throws longest runs. Some patterns felt like settling in them and simply going on and on (but, well, got a slip or bad throw).   [ daily7b II: 61 ]

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, #conditions, 235 minutes

#conditions - moskitoes of the kind that keep bouncing onto your face and don't mind a notable breeze made it hard to focus even only five minutes in one go today.
3c basics, tricks - 25 min   4-5 attempts below 100 for doubles. 21, 30 triples. Two or three bad attempts on quadruple spins.
Trying single rounds from and back to cascade:
  441, 441423 - got single rounds, better with stronghand. Also a 441441 to collect.
  34530 - same, .. got it once on both sides, but weakhand with halves. No two rounds per run today.
  first time trying 552 from cascade in singles into 5-s as triples - got two or three ``valid attempts´´ into like four throws to drop(s).
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 38 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
9b flashing - 27 min.   Three or four times 7 gathers. One 8 gathers with one ball caught pressed against the neck and one more in the other elcrook.   No rethrows.
5b 56752 - 20 min.   8th side full caught (not very "clean" last round). 6th and 7th sides to drop(s). Best clean was 6 sides, i think.   Did bend knees, instead standing straight, for a (needed) change, which seemed to work a bit.
7b casc - 120 min. ( lost a lot of time fighting moskitos with a) incense, b) alcoholic spray, c) a brailer, d) spray-spitting at those right in front my face, e) bluntly clapping them, f) not caring .. thinking "Ommm..." - nothing really worked - was near giving in?!! )   A pretty smooth 67, and a rather tensed 53 throws longest runs. Rest 39 and below.   [ daily7b II: 67 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #new, #StagesOfLearning, #conditions, 271 minutes

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.
5b all up 180° - 12 min.   Again, only close ``almosts´´. At a point, chose to not "do until" anymore, but go on in schedule.
5b tricks, s'swaps - 25 min.   single sequences with cascade in between ..
75751 - 5' - bad. nothing. just found that trying weakhand 7-s too made no sense so far.
8552 - 4' - Got two times two sequences plus attempt on third with cascade in between per run. (stronghand 8-s only)
7772615 - 8' - Once back to cascade, then clean collected. Two times once plus a second attempt per run into fail.
88522 - 8' - #new - got an early once the sequence back to cascade, then clean collected. Then couldn't confirm, but only got ``almosts´´. - #SoL Queer: something simple hides in that pattern that I couldn't easily seize .. you throw that 5 under the first 8, then you have two holds, to time an initial 5 over the last 8 to get back to cascade. Just "which hand? when exactly?" got me puzzled a bit.
  I think, then I did well to not even try 7733 and 95551
5b 56752 - 65 min.   Best runs were a 10th side clean, an 8th side clean, then two more 8th sides to collapse. A few 7th sides. And a good bunch of 6th sides half of which clean.
7b casc - 152 min.   63 cl, 47, 47, 52, 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]

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

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, 7 balls splits, #StagesOfLearning, 8 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, #conditions, 366 minutes

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.
5b 56752 - 60 min.   Upto a late 8 sides clean run. More than 6 sides are still not obvious and granted.
7b splits - 14 min.   Upto 14 c cl (7 duplex).   #SoL - Speedy tact about 4b-height-speed-ratio ( I tend to do it too slow). And should spread better with help of thumb.
8b wimpy - 12 min.   11 throws max. Nothing clean.   Should throw more from middle with lower to no crossing point for balls to not interfere so much. Goes for 7b and 9b too.
9b flashing - 10 min.   <= 6 gathers.
7b casc - 120 min.   53, 45, 43, 49, 56 throws longest runs.   No real break whole session, so somewhat weary & worn here, but just want this to roll preferably soon than too late. Some shorter good phases with nice throwing into top well and or easy fluent rhythm (in spite spent form) were remunerating for effortish and-or many early fails in longer bad phases.   [ daily7b II: 56 ]
5b fastest - 15 min.

# #conditions, 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 167 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 27 min.
5b 56752 - 25 min.   Not over 5 rounds clean.
9b flashing - 35 min.   Three times 7 gathers.
7b casc - 80 min.   [ daily7b II: 35 ]
#conditions - unnervingly irritating and freakin' disturbing wind plus windchill where I expected perfect spring weather - usually I take this as a challenge to do with modifier "with notable wind", but not today - it's not mainly any balls slightly aberring, but when looking high with nothing but the sky as background, with wind pushing now more, then less a.s.o., you slightly lose stable orientation and stable stance on an anyway also uneven meadow (comparable to standing still on a wobbly platform or mattress) - very very bad session - rather a futile fight to the marrow today

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #conditions, #jugglingSpots, 165 minutes

( #conditions, #jugglingSpots - started raining just when i started, unexpectedly with wind & rain coming under the bridge, so I stood in windshade facing the pillar doing 5b .. later without or less rain, at my normal spot there, the cobbles were muddy and had to clean dropped balls a lot :-| another lesson on for when in doubt to choose a spot with granted conditions )
5b casc varied - 10 min.
5b 56752 - 60 min.   Upto 6 rounds clean.
7b casc - 90 min.   51, 43, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]

# 7 balls, 5 balls, 8 balls, #PR, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, #efficiency, #otu, #conditions, #ballproperties, 160 minutes

3' 5b warmup.
5b 52567 - 12 min.   No great yield (4th and 5th sides), but okay for short stint and it felt okay.
8b wimpy - 20 min.   #SoL, #technique, #otu, #efficiency - remembered I did too narrow last time, so wanted to use width better; on that behalf, other than usual, did the first pair of throws to collect for calibration once or twice to make sure I wouldn't be throwing ``somewhere up somehow´´, which was very helpful!?   10 catches clean, awkard last 2 catches with several contacts tilting them up before catching them arm to body, new #PR, and confirmed soon after. Further 8 c cl twice, 9 gathers, 12 throws.
7b casc - 115 min.   41, 51, 41, 53, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]   4 gathers on an impulsive 7 up 180° - maybe not impossible.
5b fastest - 10 min.

#conditions - partly in the rain, made balls slip when wet or stick to hands when slightly moist.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #injuries, #conditions, #anatomy, 110 minutes

5b warmup, casc varied - ~5 min.   #anatomy - Ripped a fibre \ small bundle in my upper right wade when jumping up for a very high throw. I seem to have been lucky that it seems to have been a muscle used for jumping very high mainly with utterly stretched leg, so I since got along just hobbling some, now. Still, surely a question of weeks to heal unto full leg movement, walking, stance.
5b 52567 - ~15 min.   Into 6th side. Two times into 5th side. Two 4 sides clean collected.
7b casc - ~90 min.   37, 39, 35[*], 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 43 ]
      [*] 35 th - this was best run .. smooth, low, snapped in right from launch, then rolled like by itself.

#conditions - Oh, .. forgot:   used vinyl gloves against chilly temperatures - worked great, almost like barehanded.
