# 7 balls, #outstandingRuns, #mentec, #endupatt, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, 215 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
5b 56752 - 25 min.   Two 7th to collapse.   Two 6th sides clean.
9b flashing - 30 min.   Five times 7 gathers, one of which out of 10 throws.   2 and 3 rethrows (once each. =11, 12 throws).
7b casc - 115 min.   43, 51, 45, 75[*], 49 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 75 ]
        [*] - #outst'runs, #mentec(?), #endupatt - did not focus on top's shape well, as usually works best, but had had several ~35-37 runs seeming like a barrier right before and wanted to do what I'm actually out for and dare and keep 'em up for a longer run  ( sort of went for it(?), put less focus on counting(?), did with extra spirit(?), sth of the kind, .. mainly "kept going", I guess .. ).  The run itself wasn' to tensed, rather fluent, just had to fight just a bit with right height at around six sets of eight throws.
5b fastest - 10 min.   Very very low & fast, partly racketing, but hardly over 30 throws a few runs. (need 50 throws safe, or a minute)

5b casc varied - ~5 min.
5b 52567 - ~15 min.   (4th and 5th sides)
8b wimpy - 15 min.   Two times 8 c cl, only after calibrating first throws to collect.
7b casc - 125 min.   47*, 42, 47, 43, 43, 53, 45, 55 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]   * - this was best gorgeous run, a lower one, but didn't seem fast at all; perfect stable pattern; felt just like 5b.

# 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #PR, #outstandingRuns, 5prop mix, #StagesOfLearning, #psychologic, 195 minutes

55' - 5b "easiest" \ endure - #outstandingRuns - Exceptional 1468 throws run (tensed only above like 320 th) is new #PR.

25' - 5 mixed props, 4b1c - Upto 9 rounds.   #psychologic - I was a bit too eager to get this well soon, soas to go over to 3b2c, then didn't underestimate that 1c anymore and got it better.
          [ n.t.s.: 7 tcl½, 7 tod½, 9 (10?) tbd, 7 tbd½, 8 tod½½½, 9 V, 7 tbd½, 8 tod, 7 (8?) tod, 7 V, ]

20' - 5 mixed props, 3b2c - 2 rounds into attempt on 3.rd (5 tinyclubs caught).   #SoL - I think sticking to clean pattern (e.g. constant height, geometry, scoop) - as so often generally - and relying on the club throws and spins to come well, without then main focus on those, does best here (at my current level). Else - focussing too much on single throws - will not keep the pattern together well and tear it apart rather soon than late, with awkward timing and spread shape issues coming up.

95' - 5b rev casc - 71, 63 cl, 65, 69, 112 cl (but horribly klutzed collect) #PR (not smooth & swift, but fought for, and misshaped pattern), 53 throws longest runs.

Two new PRs = great yield today. Things slowly start taking shape.

# 7 balls, #PR, #session, #outstandingRuns, #breakthrough, 5 ball tricks, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 225 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.   97 throws 7-high.
9b flashing - ~30 min.   Four times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g clearly in reach (but blundered somehow with full catchhands). Felt okay. Some pattern in the air worth that name.
5b 52567 - ~40 min.   Best was a seventh side thrown to drops, once. Nextbest, once 21 catches clean. Furthermore 20 gathers; and 20 throws with 19 gathers and 1 drop. Six more fifth sides thrown to drop(s) or collapse. Eight times 16 catches clean.   Felt so near a new PR or getting it down, now (once again - but thought this somedays earlier already).
7b casc - ~135 min.   45, 41, 49, 61(? 65?)  ( this one was wide and forced after fighting past my strange attractor at about 35 throws, hasting behind the beat all rest of the run ),  41, 45, 49 cl  ( this was a nice & clean run, well near my chest ((sort of standing right inside the front plane, it seems)) & swift, rolling - much better than the very long run before ),  43, 49, 41, 56, 51, ~51 (only started counting this one after about two periods), 75 catches clean!! (9 sets of 8 + 4 launch throws never counting 'em ./. 1 last weakhd afterthrow mostly lacking) #PR  ( more than that .. it's a landmark I always wanted in the past: 10 times seven throws all caught [*] ),  61, 41 throws runs longer than 40 th.         [ dailyLongestRun7b: 75 ] ( A'll make that chart bend & curl back to its origin! ;o]) .. and shoot right past it into free open space )
5b fastest - ~5 min.   One long run 40+ at least, maybe ~50 throws. Felt utterly snapped in .. all I had to do was "go on" exactly like that. Nirvanic. Haunted. Could relaxedly watch myself doing stable several periods after I had gotten a left turn controlled.

[*] - things have meanwhile changed, of course, .. I want it mastered, but above all no more early fails which I still get a real lot. So, this is an enormously sweet peak run (and it was worth a 1 mile-radius yell), but not the breakthrough I'm after, like to get a nice & familiar good dozen of seconds run anytime.
The pattern itself wasn't fully controlled .. it slowly walked away with me like so often; so, I rather held it up, kept it up, starting speedy & lower, then towards middle of run slowly becoming higher, then awkward and greater 3d spread towards end. Managed to go to collect when control was completely lost. I've had runs with more control, easier, swifter, but this run shows, I'm getting better at keeping non-optimal patterns up, too.

# 7 balls, 5 balls, #outstandingRuns, #endupatt, 115 minutes

5b casc varied - ~30 min.
7b casc - ~85 min.   39_(1.st run),41,,,41,65!_(but only 58-59 c),,,, throws runs longer than 38 th. [Commas = timeline; " - " = consecutive runs] *65: great very easy ``movin' on´´-run, feeding pattern's top. Had before done speedy with unleashed wrists for a while (short runs, fails, uncontrolled). After that tried speedier thrown launches, but at a slightly slower, comfortable beat (compared to normal). A good launch makes it so much easier to get into controlled, endurable pattern (and the right cascady feel) right with 8.th-9.th throws. (other than having to `find into pattern´ after so-so manageable launches).   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 65 ]

# 7 balls, 5 balls, #outstandingRuns, #endupatt, #technique, 85 minutes

5b casc varied - ~10 min.   Constant 9-high (~20 throws). Pulse wide\\narrow 5-7-high. Fastest.   Should do walk with pattern back 'n forth again (for control over getting patterns near body).
7b casc - ~75 min.   (29, very 1.st run - rare, such an offbeat), 35, 37, 41, 36, 39, 39, 35, 36, 39, 43(47?), 53, 47, 43, 37, 39 throws runs longer than 33 th (great yield). The 53 t run was queer, different: I did high elliptic slow(!?) scoops with my dwell-time. I have no idea, what to think of that - it does match timing frequently being too fast a bit, then having too much space 'til next ball landing. (But I usually then simply can do lower at same beat). Pattern was normal, though, average wide (about hip to hip), average high (about 3 ft above head). - - - Apart from that, also for sure now spotted a downpull after ~27 throws, and this time, it came back regularly (unintended) (with breathing?) every like 6(?)-7(?)-8(?) throws, where I had to lift pattern up again each time. (So, controlling this, going with it, is an issue for such runs).   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 53 ]

# 7 balls, 5 balls, #session, #outstandingRuns, #breakthrough, 115 minutes

(no sun, even stronger colder wind than yesterday --> gloves and thick unsporty clothing
5b casc varied - ~10(?) min.
7b casc - ~105(?) min.   ,, ~35/37,, 37, 36, 39, 37,, 36, 38, 37,, 38, 37, 35, here took off gloves and pullover for last ten minutes: 44, 41, 45, 53 throws runs longer than 33 th. After taking off gloves, pattern felt `thinner´, balls smaller, tunnels broader, whole pattern more `airy´, more space in between to throw into, easier aiming and controlling.   So many good runs in such a short time and the patterns, feeding their top well, and feeling as easy as enduring 5b very `cascady´, felt like a breakthrough. (Once again). I really should hold the pattern up for a while (>=100 c) by spring, now, under good conditions (=sunny) in a long, unhasty session.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 53 ]

# 7 balls, 5 balls, #outstandingRuns, #endupatt, #technique, 130 minutes

5b casc varied - 15 min.   9-high ~30 throws.   Very high. [Maybe I can one day leave gravity :o]) ]   Pulse wide\\narrow.   Fastest.
7b casc - 115 min.   66, 39, 40 (42?), 41,,,, 35,,, 37,,,, 49 throws runs longer than 33 th.   66 th - run not very high, max ~3 ft above head, but my favourite pattern is yet about a foot lower and speedier. Scooping a bit only (naturally?), not so exaggerated. Not narrow, not wide, just fine. No effort / tensions, but not wholly relaxed but somewhat finetuning a lot without that feeling of going by itself. Maybe a bit speedier than many other practise runs. Top of pattern felt more above the head (not actually in front some) - I know it, but doing it feels like throwing behind myself and falling backwards a bit before it usually snaps in just right after one-two periods [but didn't wholly snap today, as mentionned above]. Thus, tripping backwards (instead being pulled forward) is, I guess, a good sign.   Not surprised myself with such long not had peak run out of nowhere, but expecting such to happen more and more now - just a bit relieved, satisfied for really doing it.  [ dailyLongestRun7b: 66 ]

# 5 balls, #PR, #outstandingRuns, 100 minutes

5b endure - 100 min.   (~316), 329, 937 (#PR) throws. Crazy, mental: nothing in between many many early fails, and that one peak run. No outbreakers that run, but tensed pattern a lot, lots 'a `palm-juggling´, fighting to keep the `turning-wheel´ stable up. Am much more satisfied for a very long run at last and this day at end of practise and bad yields last days, than deploring, it wasn't >=1,000.   [ dailyLongestRun5b: 937 ]

# #PR, #list, #endupatt, #outstandingRuns, 1 minutes

Old PR: 53 catches last late fall.
71 throws run. Think, it were like 67 or 68 caught before drop.
Overdue by mere statistics, after getting several 53 throws runs and a few estimated round PR uncounted very long runs this year.

It was another of those rather high runs. Not narrow at all. No fight to keep it up in between. Actually not much effort needed.
I think, all I did, was to throw rather a good bit too high rather than a tiny bit too low .. make dead sure to be on height all the time, but hard to tell, what - if even - was different. I think, I also scooped well without thinking about it.

Felt very simply cascady. Felt so 'normal' during the run, like I've been doing this before and would later again. Not felt like sth 'new' or extraordinary or 'other'. So, --> no yell, no outburst, no kiai.
But some great relief, maybe satisfaction for being on the right way, and against some casual doubt of maybe practising wrong, thinking wrong, doing sth essential wrong, even though knowing that my average has risen since last year. One or two moments of deep peace sensation also for having taken this hurdle of breaking by number that last old PR after feeling so much like having improved considerably.

I was really now running out of any new preliminaries or recipes after having done
  - 5b cascade varied in any way
  - attempting to flash 9b a lot
  - controlling a pattern (or 5b) partly mainly from wrists
  - focussing on drifts in 7b pattern and working against these by e.g. scooping more
    or e.g. training wide\narrow-control with 5b, or e.g. pulling patterns near my body
  - and enduring 5b a lot.

Even though I couldn't, in one hour's remaining practise time, confirm by getting another run like that, higher than old PR, I can now have an outlook and hope to get long runs in less practise time. And getting into 7 ball tricks (!?) is getting nearer as an option. And I can hope to improve even faster now (my longed for "breakthrough"). I can hopefully soon now go out for practise to actually juggle and not try or find into pattern. But find back into pattern anytime during an actual run :o)
