# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 4 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 230 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 43 min.   Special attention today for my "fastest"-pattern, but big & slow; other than assumed, it's not   rev--normal--normal,   but   rev--rev--normal--normal   ( took a while to find out, as the first rev is almost a slam .. puzzling ). Also tried   rev--rev--normal   which was pretty puzzling ( upto ~3 rounds only ).
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   88, 128 cl wristy 6-high.   192 th normal 5-high (~head-high + 1 handwidth).
9b flashing - 28 min.   iv 7 gathers' launches.
5b 56752 - 16 min.   Two 8th sides. Two 9th sides. One 10th side(?), i think.
4b 66161 - 3 min.   Messy, bad, maybe sort of 6--6--1--6--[collapse]. Tried 626262626262..6616[a.s.o.], (start from 1hd 3b), but was even worse with that get-in being puzzling on top of getting it anyway not.
7b casc - 134 min.   45, [break], 51, 47, 51 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
in between, after break, for re-warmup, a bit (2-3min?) more 4b-66161 .. #SoL - " feed every empty hand ! "  ( + " throw a 6 with every full or just fed hand! ", or: " get rid of everything with a 6 ! " ((when no hand is empty)) )  seems to work just great, so far  ( got like [launch]--661616616--[collapse or collect] or so iirc ).

# 7 balls, #StagesOfLearning, #endupatt, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 9 balls flashing, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 315 minutes

3c basics - 5 min   298 doubles (tensed, one fight with halves amidst run). 36 triples. Quads bad.
3c tricks - 5 min   Two to three rounds of 441. ( had hurt the insideward middle limb/joint of my middlefinger on quads and didn't feel 100% secure anymore, so skipped 34530 )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 70 min.   Today's ``stuck with´´ went to all up + 90° - got it uglily twice; to 441 - worked myself up to 12-13 rounds; and to variations of reachovers ( Singles in #n-count. Half-a-windmill like clawed 3-counts. Doubles = two columns = two reachovers. )
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   113 throws wristy 6-high.   157 th comfortable head-high 5-high.
9b flashing - 43 min.   iv times 7 gathers. Droppy; many slips on dusty ground.
5b 56752 - 55 min.   Two times 8 sides, one of which clean. Two times 9 sides. Once 12 sides to collapse.
7b casc - 127 min.   43 throws was longest run. #SoL #endupatt - Hardly got over that strange attractor hurdle at about 33-35 throws; often a drift into too wide went into collapse there, but when scooping more to inside, I had too slow handspeed and got early landing balls in even shorter runs. ( no full fresh form, no unleashed arms, .. dunno what to blame ) Maybe not ``speedy´´ enough in mind; also didn't vary a lot, high & slow \ low & fast, soas to find a good in-between ..   [ daily7b II: 43 ]
5b casc, reverse casc - 5 min.

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 60 min.   Consecutive claws.   Once around into stronghand throws' direction with bx + 90°.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 3 min.   107 throws wristy 6-high.   241 throws comfortable 5-high.
9b flashing - 55 min.   Twelve times 7 gathers, only one of which clearly almost 8 g.   A few times two good rethrows.   Another "something is possible"-stint, but didn't happen.
5b 56752 - 35 min.   An 8th and a 9th sides' run, both to collapse. A 10 sides' run full caught (ugly last round's throws).
7b casc - 147 min.   43, 45, 43, 45, 49, 43, 43 cl, 61, 44 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 61 ]

# 7 balls, #otu, 9 balls flashing, #mentec, #conditions, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 240 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 22 min.   Behind back can't seem to get them in a fast count, only 5-count at most, let alone consecutives (impossible so far).  "Fastest".
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 3 min.   160 throws wristy 6-high, also smooth, rather untensed. (i think, this is important for enduring 7b cascade, .. i will later think: "Keep going just like with these").   239 throws comfortable 5-high.
9b flashing - 35 min.   Three times 7 gathers. Two times 8 g in reach. Also some good upto 3 rethrows again. Something really seemed possible today.   #SoL #mentec - hard to explain, but i think, it works best to sort of visualize the pattern running on height right before launching  ( instead trying rhythms and heights for each pair (stronghand throwing, weakhand following) of balls launched, and instead of working on tuning, calibrating and coordinating a lot on merely the launch itself ),  or just imagine and visualize a good height, then orientate on that `result´ of the launch when launching, sort of anticipating all balls up and intending to focus on feeding the top. Maybe this goes with focussing more on the later throws sort of `fulfilling´ that intention. (if all that makes sense).   #conditions - the meadow was just a tiny bit moist making the balls only slightly sticky (not too much) - which was bad for fast stuff with few balls before - but now it prevented unwanted double-multi-releses and was now also good for catching with much fewer slips and better grip. ( I was prepared to skip my 5b s'swap stint for those very good 9b conditions and good form that i also had, but rain came, so left it at that. )
5b 56752 - 32 min. [under bridge, now]   A few 8th sides. Two 9th sides. Best clean was 7 sides.   #SoL - I don't need so much focus on emphasizing the 6-es anymore, so i shift between those and not delaying the sidechange-5 (or actually focus on both those throws' turn). I'm that way also getting a 5675 | 2 rhythm again (not that "two high throws over two low throws"-stuff 525 | 67 or what else i had there before), which works good and feels fluent once i found into pattern. Also those 2-s now indeed feel like a "pause" (not like some unclear uncontrolled necessity of the s'swap that needs built in somehow without a good feeling for its timing).
7b casc - 142 min.   61 (60 c), 49, 75 cl (or 76 cl? wonderful smooth run, no real fighting needed), 59 cl, [short break], (nothing after break), throws longest runs. wow! what a yield .. weather was almost chilly unless you moved which i did, so great temperatures for juggling.   #otu - A few attempts on reverse cascade in between: no chance doing reverse right after launch throws, but then did one try with one period of regular cascade after launch and only then switch into reverse which went much better (6 gathers); so, that's the plan, and looking foreward to casually trying this again and getting a round or two clean.       [ daily7b II: 75 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 220 minutes

5b casc varied - 3-5 min.   Short warmup on 9-?-b-high throws.
9b flashing - 65 min.   Four times 7 gathers. A few good rethrows, well in beat and height from good pattern, some bad hasted ones in bad pattern.
7b casc - 85 + 57 min.   45, [changed to other riverside here], 43, 59 (°whew°, relieving) throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 59 ]
in between 5b 56752 - 2-3 min.   No long run, but felt ood, promising.

# 5 ball tricks, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, 7 balls, 5 heavy balls, 110 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 23 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   69 throws wristy 6-high. 221 th 5-high.
9b flashing - 27 min.   Two 7 gathers one of which almost 8 g.   A few rethrows.   #SoL - (not a new issue, but) I'm waisting a lot of effort on throwing the later throws unnecessarily way too high; that also explains, why sometimes speediest launches are still too slow to get all balls out before the first two drop, while another time speedy works great and there's spare milliseconds for rethrows. (It's trivial, but trying hard and not watching yourself or focussing on sth else, you don't always notice)
5b 56752 - 35 min.   7th and 8th sides (one clean). One 9th side clean.
[ on upcoming rain, changed spot from shady to near home ]
7b casc - 20 min.   [ daily7b II: 41 ]
Rain stopped the session early and I drove home, but the big dark cloud passed sideways and there wasn't to come any soakin' strong or long rain (yet unpredictable then). Would've had time to do indoors (which feels so `second best only´), but didn't make it - I'm not so unconditionally keen on indoor 5b rev casc or 3b+2c stuff.

# 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 heavy balls, 65 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 43 min.   Elcurls to handback-flick on 423.   ``Roll-to-elcrook-and-flick´´, cascade (s'swap 3), in a 2-count, consecutives, that is for that hand; didn't get more than three to a clean collect.

9b flashing - 15 min.   One 7 gathers. One launch with good rethrows.

more 9b flashing - 15 min.   Two more 7 gathers.
5b 56752 - 58 min.   10 sides clean, 10 sides to collapse, 9 sides to collapse. Rest, a few each, 6th, 7th and 8th sides, very few clean.

5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 12 min.   Wristy 6-high. ~140 5-high.
9b flashing - 10 min.   Smaller-equal 6 gathers. (warm, droppy, tedious, no halfway fresh speedy moving - didn't seem to make much sense, so stopped)
