# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 8 balls, 6 ball tricks, 120 minutes

6b 525[75] - ~2 min.   Two duplex thrown.
5b 52567 - ~20 min.   Two times same: 20 throws, 19 catches, one drop.   Three 16 catches clean.
7b casc - ~85 min.   41, 43, 45 cl throws runs longer than 40 th.   Plus a pretty long run uncounted roughly estimated on ~50+.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 45 ]
  .. amidst that stint did some 8b wimpy - ~3 min.   The 7 catches I got, aren't what I want there.
5b fastest - ~10 min.   29 throws counted of "fastest" (= at highest speed i can do = notably below chin).

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #PR, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 6 ball tricks, #otu, 230 minutes

#conditions - perfect. Not so warm anymore, windy + some clouds, few or no mosquitos, great form good arms good balls .. jus' gorgeous weather & conditions for juggling.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~35 min.   Two times 7 gathers with 8 g in reach. Six more times 7 g. No 8g, but did upto three re-throws, no matter them being unreasonable .. still a step towards it feeling like juggling (not batter 'em up and save as many as can).
#SoL new flaw / error detected: have been launching with hands too narrow, both throwing from middle, all the time - can and should do notably wider.
Also, the third throw from stronghand, between ringfinger and pinky, (is the one that) tends to slip most - so having an eye on keeping that one well gripped (tight enough) gives more reliable launches and-or less fails.
5b 52567 - ~45 min.   Took a good while, until I got into and some results.
Best was, i think 24 catches clean; but it came surprisingly and trying to verify, I checked anything doubtable  ( four balls in one hand: check. Stronghand start: couldn't remember for sure, but should have if had done weakhand start, also those don't get that far. Anything else? Wrong hand catch: not that I noticed. Wrong order of throws: not that I noticed. )  and in the end couldn't tell for sure anymore. I think it was #PR 24 c cl, but won't record, cos' I had those queer doubts. I'm not going for peak runs (not even near confirmed), after all, .. I want to get the pattern down and running, so if I can do 24 c cl, I will want it and more than that again!
Furthermore, got 20 c cl; two fifth sides (19 and 20 throws to drops); and nine times 16 c cl.        
7b casc - ~125 min.   47, 42, 49, [snackbreak], (5' 5b - 180°), a long uncounted run ~50+ raw estimate, 41, 42 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 49 ]
.. in between, after break, did some 5b all up 180° - ~5 min.   Once 3 rethrows (going for "back to cascade"); once 4 c collected (going for "to collect").
5b fastest - ~5 min.
.. and also have #otu been trying just a few attempts on 6b 525[75] these last days getting only a first round or so. http://fs5.directupload.net/images/160830/fks83wsc.gif

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 3 clubs basics, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 6 ball tricks, 215 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min. Dots, claws, reachovers, penguins, rev--normal--normal, only sometimes uta, bb (looking).
3c basics - ~5 min Doubles - 112 catches. Triples - twice ~20 c.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~15 min. ~70 catches 7-high.
5b casc varied - ~15 min. Walking with, and pulsing wide\\narrow with 7-high each, sometimes goes good with longer runs and few drops, sometimes I don't get it and get short runs only and more frequent drops. 9-high still lacks accuracy, except on a good day - I can then attempt to walk with it.
6b-[53]55 - ~5 min. Too hard. Better 5b-355[75]50 needed first.
7b casc - ~165 min. ,, 55, 43,, 59 (57 c), 45, 49, 47,, 49, 45 -- 43 -- 43, 41, 50,, 40, (snack-break),,, 44 -- 49, 40, 39 cl,, 50, 61,, throws runs longer than 38 th. [Commas = timeline; " -- " = consecutive runs; "cl" = "c cl" = catches clean]   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 61 ] Great run. Normal, natural, flowing well in beat, hands like guided by some nirvanic alien ;o]: But lots of awkward or forced or bailed out other runs.
