# 5 ball tricks, #endupatt, 5prop mix, 175 minutes

5' - 5 prop mix, 4b1c - 5 rounds.

105' + 65' - 5b rev casc - 129 (tensed. after as many as 30 minutes - reads: it's still difficult and takes its time to find on level, even on average), 107 (@ 50'), 101, 131 (in a trot, di'n even pay attention, but was listening to soccer talk. also relaxed low pattern, now), 138 cl, 169, 136, 114, 121, 169, //15' break//, 147, 106, 102, lost that automatic feeling, now trying to somehow do mechanically, like a metronome, the right mindstate for enduring is generally surely an issue now, 133, 141 (but both rather too tensed again, partly fought for result), 106, throws runs longer than 100 throws.

# 5 ball tricks, #endupatt, #StagesOfLearning, #focus, 203 minutes

133' + 70' - 5b rev casc - started with bad weakhand, after somewhat fixin' had then still bad angles, .. 95 (@ 65'), 96 cl, 107, 99, 91, 134 smooth, fluent, 145, .. ( #SoL - ) can't tell what is now distinctly different compared to the beginning of this stint and to yesterday, just overall lower, speedier, better in shape and rhythm; ( #focus - ) I was, though, at start swimming a bit with different focusses on now this then that. ( #endupatt - ) Maybe going for a pattern that is about as high as wide is a clue to getting it good ( instead losing time and effort on high narrow patterns when trying to find into pattern, if that's possible ). .. 111, //20' break//, 101, 100, 101, 103, 131, 96, 99, throws runs longer than 90 throws.
throws longest runs. [ 5b reverse cascade progress: 145 ] (new season's best, fourth longest run ever)

120' + 75' - 5b rev casc - 87 (30'), 91, 105, 104, 82, 114, 101, 97, 112, .. , So, what or which is the "weakest element" of my 5b reverse cascade? - Dunno, ... in good phases with good patterns it seems, the issue in a given moment is simply relaxing and settling in that pattern versus losing the pattern there, maybe a casual slip, ... when i don't get it in bad phases, several issues might be that "weakest, worst element": maybe a slightly too bad height per beat ratio, maybe too little scoop to the outside a bad width, a too narrow pattern, gotta find out if can unless that "weakest element" is maybe dynamic and changes from time to time and pattern to pattern and is difficult to nail. If there is any such weakest elemment in my 5b revs, I'd expect it to be there both, in good and bad phases. Maybe it's simply my weaker hand doing wrong in any case. .. 91, //10' break//, 107, 93, 84, 95, 103, 93, 119, 93, 88 cl, 87 throws runs longer than 80 throws. [ 5b reverse cascade progress: 119 ]
It's going half well, though, - #chartread 5b rev casc - I've increased my average, just haven't gotten the very long runs (~150+ throws) like in spring, nothing way above that daily over 100 throws since over three weeks now.

/* - had not been scooping wide enough (got columns, several collisons), and also didn't focus on pattern's top well - not that I wouldn't have tried all the time .. simply didn't manage, it didn't work. - Guess, I was too much fixed on doing relaxed, gettin' the easiest way, with smaller pattern, thus smaller hand movements, thus smaller scoop, yet doing on good height, so, getting too narrow patterns. - Varying patterns a bit would have found that out earlier!? Also more awarely reflecting what kept me stuck at 73 throws would've. ( but, doing "easiest", which is imo an optimal way to practise, I never got the idea, there might be anything else that could improve my practise ) - More precisely: daring to free and move the arms, the elbows out wider a bit, instead instinctively keeping the pattern near with me (and trying to scoop more, but with arms stuck to the body), is the thing.

[ daily7b II: 0 ]

193' + 65' - 5b rev casc - 71 (30'), 73, 85 (35'), 83, 91, 75, 77, 79, 103 cl, 75, 111, 94, 75 cl, 95, \20'\, 89, 77, 89, 101, 82, 98, 103 cl, 77 longest runs (throws). Got over a weary tedious first hour by merely drinking (without really being thirsty), i think (will look up "dehydration when doing sports" in that context). Mostly watched, oriented on and focussed pattern's top 1 to 3 balls - felt good, fun to get good swift smooth stable patterns and good and longer runs again after a few overall unfruity days.

60' + 65' - 5b rev casc
[typing while practising:] .. Don't want to bother with reducing to one distinct main focus. .. Rather make sure, weakhand does well and is active. .. (57, 65), .. Priority on control, doing right, easy relaxed pattern, avoiding effort. .. (63, 61, 63, 63 cl), .. avoiding columns when under timing-pressure is an issue right now, so trying to make sure ev-ver-ry single throw gets an inward angle, .. 85 cl, (65', 63)., //break, 15'//, .. doing "remote controlled 3b top" now, or at least orienting on pattern's top, that I seem to have neglected lately, .. (63, 63 cl), 84 more fun, now that sth keeps the wole thing together, .. 75, 77, 72, (65), 87, 79, 84 cl, 73. [end typing while practising] [ 5b reverse cascade progress: 87 ]
Reads like "fun" was the clue (lol?) to do better and get somewhat longer runs, but no, the fun came from good focus on pattern's top with nicer juggling, of course.
Another thought I had: Anticipating, knowing shortly in advance, where the last ball up from other hand lands in the top and how and where it will come down (instead of waiting to actually see it up there in or near the apex), is helpful, speedier thinking, gets better timing.

# 5 ball tricks, #list, #exercises, #focus, #mentec, #StagesOfLearning, #efficiency, #endupatt, #ThinkAs, #structuredPractise, #reflecting, #technique, 160 minutes

[ daily7b II: 0 ]

60' - 5b rev casc -

Systematically - easy going, no fights to keep up or sth - went through all kinds of focusses, ways of aiming, ways of thinking the pattern, modes indeed:

  1. - trapezium - throwing along the sides of a trapezium, with shared flightpoint high up - ~40 throws, .. it turned out, that focussing either on aiming the shared flightpoint or else on doing the throwing movement along the trapezium's sides in that angle are two different focusses

  2. - ``over´´ the pattern, along it's inner part - seeing where I'm throwing, what I'm doing + a second focus on height are better here, .. got ~24

  3. - similar: "to the middle", through an imagined horizontal ring, focus on where balls should land (less on right height) - chaotic, already a little landing spread disconcerts, useless without also scooping well (didn't even pay attention to balls on collision course) - had 21 throws

  4. - nice bowy weakhand throws (no matter anything else, but including height of the bows thrown course) - 24 t

  5. - along the high incoming ball - 47 cl, .. in case of bad timing gives unconstant height (corresponding to - in the moment that I throw and aim - .. to where the oriented on ball is, when, early or late, it's on a different height), .. is also pattern's top, i just realize, .. merged into remote controlling a top's 3b rev cascade!?

  6. - with active thumbs, in a scope of a) thumb in case helping or sustaining, stabilizing, to b) gripping every throw with also the thumb and it being active also at release; overall catching nearer to or in the palm then (rather than in a fingerbasket) - ~23 t?

Not easy or obvious to switch between mindstates or focusses.

40' - repeat:

  1. - trapezium, to shared flightpoint - 39, 41 throws

  2. - over the pattern - clear view, nothing to imagine, .. doesn't in any way enforce scooping well, .. maybe nothing to orient on when pattern (is about to) fall apart, .. 53 cl

  3. - similar: "to the middle" - not so good. ~16-20

  4. - whd leads, prio & focus on nice bowy whd throws - 47 cl, ~40?, 67, couldn't soon soon confirm this longest upto now run in this session

  5. a variation of this could be with prior focus on anything weakhand does, on nothing of that in particular, in no special distinct mode.

    /break, 25'/

    35' -
  6. - along highest incoming ball / remote controlling a 3b rev cascade top - 49 throws (actually doing "over the pattern" here), .. one bad throw and your orientation is gone in this mode

  7. - active thumbs - 33 t

  8. - trapezium, along sides - 31, 31 ("over the pattern"), 53 t (loosely, merged into "over the pattern" again).

Too few data to draw any conclusions but from how it felt, what it seemed:
Above and before anything else, a well scooping weakhand needs be granted in the first place.
"remote control", "remote controlling only the 3 ball top", is most fun for sure, (it also downright asks for scooping, aiming, doing well in general), but needs a period or two of a good, stable pattern, and relaxed juggling first; first "doing along the high incoming ball" seems the easier exercise;
"over the pattern" was often what came merging; (also somewhat enforces good scoop, but still, nonetheless allows for too narrow patterns); seems to be the most direct, concise, the most obvious option within a small frame with best view on the whole;
"active thumbs" is in any case a good exercise for more options on finetuning and bail outs; it seems to entail low wide patterns (thus a bit more difficult, more challenging); also feels different, but makes a lot of sense to own as a technique;
"focus on weakhand only /whd leads / bowy throws" is a good necessary exercise;
.. but it remains unclear, how much a good pattern results from those ways, or else, is necessary to have it already gotten up rolling shortly, before even getting the opportunity to do in those ways (e.g. when going through imagining a trapezium).

25' - unrestricted, now, going for some result, high prio on whd scoop, now - 79 ("remote controlled 3b top" + "over & into the pattern" that was), 82 cl ("over & into"), 82 cl. [ 5b reverse cascade progress: 82 ]

[ 5b reverse cascade progress: 108 ]   #technique #endupatt #aiming #SoL - Got short phases with very relaxed low patterns, simply throwing over the pattern to the middle, or up to an outward aiming region in a slight inward angle, with some spacing to the rest of the pattern.   #focus #technique #endupatt - Then also sth queer once again: what was (often exaggerated) "wiggling" with the shoulderbelt in past practise units (to get over a bad start or bad phase), today was ( an impression of (?) .. ) actually aiming fromout the shoulder (especially for weakhand side), the shoulder helping, sort of either finetuning or else, providing for the blunt rough basic movement (to then be finetuned by forearm and wrist). But in any case, the shoulder taking part in or even actually doing the aiming (or thinking the aiming fromout the shoulder's movement, an awareness of it), if that makes sense and anyone can follow that impression (or maybe it's `mental´, however, it worked for a few runs).   Good practise, good yield, good feel .. gettin' there.

# 5 ball tricks, #mentec, #focus, #endupatt, #ThinkAs, 3 ball tricks, 166 minutes

Too rainy, overcast, grayish-darkish, cold, windy outdoors. [ daily7b II: 0 ]

12' - 3b elroll-takes - got upto five or six in a row in a two-count. It's not as presumed yesterday a 423 variation, but indeed maintaining crossing throws(?), the cascade(?), a ``three-beat-all´´(?), (but it's unclear how to fit that roller into s'swap notation).

1' - 3b 524RO13 - fluent (but sometimes a few back to cascade throws in between).

153' - 5b rev casc - started with short controlled runs to find into an endurable pattern - 73 (12'), 99 cl (30'), 109 (60'), 93 cl, 89, 79 cl, 71, [ #mentec #focus #endupatt #ThinkAs ] tried throwing over the whole pattern into the middle upto here, but from now on aiming along the steep sides of an imagined trapezium (with shared flightpoint very high up there somewhere), thus throwing angles with portionned thrust in the first place, only then with secondary focus on right height, 77 cl, 83, 79 cl, 71, 90, 71 cl, 75, 74 throws longest runs.
