# 7 balls, #form, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 253 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 48 min.   8 consecutive penguins (which I usually don't do, but at most in 3-count).
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
5b 56752 - 65 min.   Hardly over 6 sides clean once.
7b casc - 135 min.   Upto two times 43, but forced to limit for result. [ short break <10 min. #form - after drinking some, felt much fresher, better form, much better not so weary arms, but can't tell if it was causal or unrelated. ] Last hour got 53, 57 throws longest runs. Rest again 43 and below. Never got pattern's top well controlled, hardly any snapped-in rhythm to settle on.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

# 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.

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, 3 heavy balls, #otu, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 296 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 47 min.   [among usual ..] #otu - Tried 423 (which I have nearly never done), intending to ``actively´´ let my arm hang all way down on every 2 - 423 was great to now know how it feels, but deplorably didn't get any constant swaying arms gimmicks done (doing without throwing and in rhythm was puzzling here).
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   ~120 throws about 6-high. 200 throws on low pattern.
9b flashing - 52 min.   Twelve times 7 gathers, only one of which 8 g in reach. Hardly any rethrows (only very few unreasonable or bad late ones).
5b 56752 - 57 min.   6th adn 7th clean sides and an 8th side to one last drop.
7b casc - 135 min.   49, 44, 47, 49, 45, 43, 57 cl throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.

5b 56752 - 50 min.   6th, 7th and an 8th sides, also clean ones each.
7b casc - 150 min.   49, 43 throws longest runs. A 10+ min break amidst.   2 weary unfresh hours, then good form last ½ hour, just no results.   [ daily7b II: 49 ]
.. every once in a while on a dropped ball foot-flicked up, did triplexes [654][22]2 reverse throws; raised my #PR from three triplexes thrown and caught to five (higher and ``bigger´´, more well spread and split, did it).
7b splits - 3 min.   9 duplex thrown into 16 catches + 2 last drops.

# 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 ]

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 297 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 60 min.   Among usual, stuck to some 3-dimensional "triangle wave" [ Cf. user noslowerdna @ youTube ].   Also did an arythmic pattern:   ..--3--3--3--5--(2x,2x)--3--3--3--a.s.o.   feels a bit like 531 shapeshifted or sprung or so; - didn't plan, not even intend this - it simply ``happened´´ (queer, interesting!?).
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 8 min.
9b flashing - 47 min.   Six times 7 gathers.
5b 56752 - 42 min.   Round 7 sides.
7b casc - 140 min.   44, 45, 43, 43, 59, 45, 55, 53, 55, 43, 43 throws longest runs. Good phases felt great again.   [ daily7b II: 59 ]

# 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 ]

# 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.
