# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 215 minutes

( lacked about two or three hours of sleep, so I mostly did easy going, and just wanted to stand a long session ahead. )
3 heavy balls, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~7 min.
9b flashing - ~90 min. ___ Around twenty times 7 gathers (shouldn't count these in long stints). Four(!) times 8 g. Again, alas, hardly any rethrows that I went for a while, I think one once, and once two or three (but in hopeless pattern). One or two launches felt just like it were 7b only, and all of a piece ( while usually the first throw plus it's weakhand ´´afterthrow´´ get special attention to get them accurate, and, I guess, a minuscule slight delay aswell ). Gettin' there - it's waitin' for me to just do it.
7b casc - ~103 min. ___ 49, 43, 45, 57, 43 throws runs longer than 40 th. ___ [ daily7b II: 57 , daily7b III: 57 (overlap) ]

# 7 balls, #PR, #outstandingRuns, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 225 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   111 throws 6-high into collision.   173 t 5-high to drop(s).
9b flashing - 75 min.   Six times 8 gathers.   Sort of 11, 11, 13, 15, 13, 11, 12(? 14?) throws' launches.
7b casc - 135 min.   °woueeee°: 57, 53, 43, 45, 69, 53, 83 c cl new #PR, 49, 45, 51, 49, 43, 48, 75 (near old PR was only second best today!?), 45 throws longest runs.   #outstandingRuns - (outstanding by being longest and PR, else like other runs before) - bad start, pattern too fast or I was behind with handspeed .. had to struggle to keep it up at all (but after that, it's always good to have the worst part done and behind) .. got a pattern a bit too high for my taste (~4 ft above head), but managed to pull it down a bit (~3 ft sth) and get it ``comfortable´´ .. had one or two ``explosive´´ full power corrections at about 35 and or 40+ (50?) throws .. then it rolled as easy as can, ``cascady´´, untensed, downright relaxed, and went on and on .. lost control on a few flawly throws in a row, and managed to go to an ugly (selfthrow? a low 5?) full collect after slight collision and with two clustered balls. I've had over 80 throws formerly, but to collapse. Confirming with 75 t later this stint was very important to me (to not have it be an irrationally lucky peak run).   [ daily7b II: 83 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 277 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.   (also:) all up 90° ('got it once), single bx 90°, fastest.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 3 min.   85 throws 6-7-high. 239 t endured.
5b 56752 - 35 min.   Once into 9th side. Two times 8th side collapsing.
9b flashing - 82 min.   Four or five times 8 gathers.   After an hour, noticed, grip wasn't good - left out some air and it felt notably better, balls squishier again, better grip, better launch, but didn't get anything anymore.
7b casc - 127 min.   43, 48, 51, 53, 53, 43, 43, 53 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 229 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 18 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 7 min.   55 throws wristy 6-high to collision.   225 t 5-high.
9b flashing - 47 min.   Two times 8 gathers, plus one ``almost´´ with three or four rebounds before drop into 7 g.   Another 9 c in reach: should really have gotten it, but the last ball miraculously fell right through the space occupied by catchhand (i suspect a wormhole or higher mights or lifeforms beyond human perception and awareness teasing me, you know).   One or two attempts on unreasonable hasted rethrows.
7b casc - 157 min.   50, 61, 45, 47, 54, 45, 51, 53 throws longest runs. Best clean was 41 c cl.   [ daily7b II: 61 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 247 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 20 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min. 95 throws wristy 6-high to collision. 209 t 5-high to collision.
9b flashing - 65 min. Two times 8 gathers. Again, theoretically 9 c in reach: time plenty after spotting around 3(?) last balls, but had bodycaught already and inevitably leaving bodycatches only, for those incoming last balls (ended 6 gathers). No rethrows. (m.)
7b casc - 142 min. 47, 47, 47, 51, 53, 49, 45, 45, 43 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 53 ]
5b fastest - 10 min. Good runs, speedy, low, but no very long runs.

# 7 balls, #focus, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 208 minutes

( after two partly chilly, down to 15°C and below, rainy days, now near perfect again and more warm & dry & sunny days ahead )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 12 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Around 100 throws wristy 6-high.
9b flashing - 63 min.   One million times 7 gathers.   Two times 8 g.   11 throws into 7 gathers. 13 throws. (only rethrow attempts, i think)
  #SoL #technique - new little insight / tuning:   It struck me towards end of stint, that in the past I have been throwing the first two throws to abrupt, with abrupt movement up as if i were throwing from loose wrist, which doesn't make sense for the first ball from stronghand - a fifth ball on top of diamond gripped four others (and weakhand then following with its first launched fourth ball on the index where it would make sense to try wristy already, but so far, I let it ``follow´´). I am doing them a bit slowlier in any case, but somehow, I managed to even then do them in an abrupt way.   If I do those two throws softer and explicitly get their thrust from forearms almost only, I should get more control over my launches becoming well structured (upto now, I wasn't sure, what exactly makes me sometimes get it well, sometimes bad). Gotta try like that again and track this.
7b casc - 128 min.   44, 43 cl, 43 cl, 44, 53, 53, 45, 49 cl, 55, 66, 53 throws longest runs. Pretty great yield, but I wasn't satisfied, for example, I lost several good runs on ~35 throws' mental (or whatever physiological) barrier, and also did tensed a lot and didn't easily get or stay in snapped-in patterns; no question of ``settling´´ in good patterns, which is my next step & level. Nonetheless, happy with a good yield of course.   [ daily7b II: 66 ]
  Also here, found yet a new aspect, "issue" even: #SoL #focus #endupatt - I am often focussing on stronghands' balls up for orientation, while I should rather partage my attention equally on any / both hands' last balls up. It's surely a result of my alltime stronghand \ weakhand asymmetry that never bothered me, but the issue is one of focus mainly. [Note to self:] Also work on, work with, and track this!
5b fastest - 5 min.   (no long runs)
