# 5 balls, 7 balls, 60 minutes

While training 5b overheads, I was hit in the eye with a ball. My eye hurt and watered a lot. I had to stop juggling for several minutes. It was pretty frustrating, but I did some jumprope and then moved on to 7b.

Ran 7b for 100 catches (to collect) on the fourth or 5th try. Working on 7b endurance has really helped my control with 7b.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 292 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 35 min.   [among usual ..] A few bx per run, down from 4-count to 3-count [it's stone-hard balls .. no fail onto head allowed].
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 12 min.
9b flashing - 55 min.   Eight times 7 gathers. One 8 g.   12 throws into 7 g !   #SoL - I need to un-automize 3.rd & 4.th launched throws; do slower, controlled 1.st & 2.nd, then controlled 3.rd & 4.th (also not so very fast, not at unleashed speed), only then fire the restly five balls up fully automized - all in order to get controlled patterns (not just lucky nice ones).
5b 56752 - 43 min.   7.th, 8.th sides, full or clean collected, a 9.th and three(!) 10.th sides to drop(s).
7b casc - 135 min.   51, 43, 57, 47, 47, 48 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]
5b casc - 5 min.   just cascade - wanted to do sth not so challenging that I can - , tried to endure, but hardly got over 100 c (just once).
5b fastest - 7 min.   felt great, insane speed, but no long runs (~30+, maybe 40).

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 8 balls, 7 balls splits, 207 minutes

5b casc varied - 7 min.   high.   wristy 9-high (won't work - too much forearm involved).   fastest.
9b flashing - 35 min.   Five times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach. An 8 g in reach became 6 g.   (no pattern up allowed for rethrows).
5b 56752 - 13 min.   Two 6th sides clean.
7b casc - 142 min.   43, 48 cl, 53, 43, 45, 51, 55 throws longest runs.   Mostly tensed, forced, fought for, today. Little swift, well in rhythm; maybe a short good phase, but not really ``on level´´.   Fresh weather, good physical form.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]
8b wimpy - 5 min.   8 c cl. (yess! .. at last, .. been a while failing only)
7b splits - 5 min.   Best attempt was 9 duplex thrown 17 catches, one last drop.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 8 balls, 245 minutes

5b casc varied, warmup - 15 min.   High.   Spontaneus attempts on 95551, fails only - got 9--5--5--5--[hesitate or wrong].   A bit fastest.
5b 56752 - 65 min.   8 sides clean. More 8th sides to collapse. A 9th side to collapse. An 11th side (=near PR) to collapse.
As a tiny compensation for not doing any 9b today, did some ..
8b wimpy - 5 min.   Upto 6 synch pairs thrown once. Nothing clean.   Need to aim better.
7b casc - 160 min.   67 (high, wide), 43, 51, 49, 47, 49, 45, 53 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 67 ]

# 5 balls, 7 balls, 25 minutes

Didn't sleep well last night, and didn't really feel well today. Juggle anyway, why not?

I have been working on overheads a lot lately, and tried 5b overheads today. Some good runs, around 11 catches (I'll call that a PR and log in records).

After juggling a lot of 7b cascade the last two days, my arms were tired. After a few runs of 7b cascade I rage quit and threw the balls like an angry child. Probably should have skipped 7b. all together. Need more optimal training structure.

# 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 70 minutes

Got a few blind catches with 3. Not too hard but need a lot of work.

5 ball 3-ups are becoming pretty consistent.
66661 with 1 behind the back is getting good.

68 catches of 7.

(8x,6)* felt great today, because the start was cleaner (not throwing balls backwards).
Got 8 rounds without much trouble, eventually managed to get 9.

10 rounds of 774 (didn't take very long).

40 rounds of 8040 in both hands. It got sloppy towards the end.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 215 minutes

5b casc varied - 5 min.
9b flashing - 30 min.   Five times 7 gathers, two of which 8 g in reach.   Also precious rethrows again of the 100% reasonable kind, not only "up, no matter what". Again felt like something goes there.
5b 56752 - 30 min.   Alltogether few 5th (?! only!), 6th, 7th sides and one 8th side, all mostly to drop(s). (In fact really a lot of 4 sides clean only, let alone early fails). Only towards end of stint, dared to do really hearty 6-es as should and also forcing them some, and adapting the pattern to those, instead vice versa, fitting the (then half-hearted) 6-es into the pattern.
7b casc - 150 min.   43, 51, 43, 43, 43, uncounted ~45-50(?), 53, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]
