# 5 balls, 5 minutes

Flash. Got it 5 times! Happy, because this was with my MMX balls, not the small beanbags that I usually use for 5 balls.
Some catches needed a little help from the other hand, one or two were caught between hand and body. Maybe I should get some standard beanbags that are a bit bigger than the ones I have practised 5 with, but a bit easier to catch 3 in one hand than the MMX balls.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 85 minutes

5b casc varied - ~10 min.
9b flashing - ~25 min. ___ Four times 7 gathers.
7b casc - ~50 min. ___ 39, 39 cl, 49 cl, 45 cl, 40, 51, 39, 42 throws longest runs. ___ [ daily7b II: 51 , daily7b III: 51 (overlap) ] ___ Tried a °975° a few times, but the 5-s fell too late and the 9-s too soon. ___ #health \form - had a few weakness attacks (kind 'a threatening to faint) with breathing feeling airless, surely an acidose \under-acidose problem. I then never know whether to breathe fresh air in deep or else to breathe with the shirt over my nose to get more of the previously outbreathed CO² back into the lungs - I think, the latter is right. I could well imagine, that panting \hyperventilating in the beat of the throws might play it's part in all this.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 57 minutes

5b casc varied - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~10 min. ___ Four times 7, once 8 gathers. Roughly doing "until 8 g" these days, if not I get one early \soon or it takes too long or doesn't feel like efficient practise (e.g. too droppy, e.g. bad conditions).
7b casc - ~42 min. ___ 39 cl, 47, 40, 45, 43, 39, 41, 59 throws longest runs. ___ [ daily7b II: 59 , daily7b III: 59 (overlap) ]

# 5 balls, 15 minutes

Flash. It took me 8 minutes to get ten successful flashes. Realised that I have a bit more time than I think to throw the balls.

Tried 7 catches. Got it once in the beginning, this time I'm sure, so, maybe new PR, but I think I have got it once before. :) Tried to get it one more time but failed. A few attempts felt pretty close, though. Most common problem: balls landing too far in front of me.

# #conditions, 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 70 minutes

5b casc varied - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~20 min. ___ got my once 8 gathers again.
7b casc - ~45 min. ___ 39, 52, 43, 42, 41 throws longest runs. ___ [ daily7b II: 52 , daily7b III: 52 (overlap) ] At first did low on that hill, then went up on top of it where it was much better ( slightly more wind, notably less moskitoes there ) and nicer with an all around view on the landscape. [ #conditions ] A halfway exposed spot also one could say - although very few people, very little traffic around - but anyway for a moment I had the feeling of deserving to juggle in such exposed position, (other than in the park) like two stories above the ground, to be ``entitled´´ to and to indeed have sth to show, skills worthwhile watching and to be admired if any passerby would watch and be it only a droppy 7b cascade with a longer run every several attempts.
