# 7 balls, #PR, #outstandingRuns, 9 balls flashing, 100 minutes

9b flashing - 30 min.   Seven times 7 gathers. One 8 g. No rethrows.
7b casc - 70 min.   47, 47, 75 cl [*], 51, 59 cl throws longest runs.         [ daily7b II: 75 ]
[*] - great run, somewhat higher than usual (as so often with PR-s), but not narrow at all; smooth, very little if any effort at all, maybe tension in the shoulders coming up. Stopped the run at a round number of nine sets of 8, believing, it were new PR, but it's only one catch near last fall's PR. [will log anyway, as it's been a year now ..]
[ rain stopped the session ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #PR, 5 balls, 202 minutes

5b casc varied - 17 min. Warmup. High. Pulse fro to high & narrow \\ wide & low. ( I should not try to do very narrow and not very wide, but pulse right back when getting any near to losing the kept going pattern! )
5b 56752 - 40 min. A 9th side. Then a 12 sides run to collapse. Aaand 55 catches clean (=almost 14 sides), among my longest runs of this ever, indeed confirming last #PR.
7b casc - 145 min. 47 cl, 44, 55, 43, 47, 47, [short snack and sit break, 8'], 45 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 55 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #PR, #outstandingRuns, 5 balls, 258 minutes

5b endure - 10 min.   From cold, did until a 500+ throws run - took ten minutes. Got ~525 th.
5b casc varied - 20 min.   9-high a few.   Then, same idea as above, getting long ednured runs and the corresponding feel and technique and mindset, did wristy 7-high wanting like 200 throws (about double of what I currently want with 7b); dunno how long it took, but after several attempts got 197 throws.   A bit "fastest" too.
5b 52567 - 68 min.   Upto two 9th sides, one of which full caught, three 10th sides, one of which full caught. Then 14 sides with one last drop = new #PR 55 catches. #outstandingRuns - The run was forced, slaving to rhythm and heights as good as I could without really controlling anything. Also a slight drift left ahead took me walking around and away from my spot in a big half circle not seeing where I was stepping on those bold cobbles needing to do every step ``individually´´ so to say. Didn't learn anything from that run, yet hopefully my subconscious will on occasion remember how to keep this pattern up even longer. Couldn't confirm, so no ``breakthrough´´, but good stint with good yield and some smooth shorter runs, and glad this is moving on.
Had chosen a spot (under the bridge) on the other riverside, where I happened to originally start to work on just this pattern about a year ago.
7b casc - 150 min.   43, 45, 45, 48, 65, [short snackbreak and lie down two minutes], 51, 49 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 65 ]
5b fastest - 10 min.   No long runs.

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, #PR, 5 heavy balls, 265 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 73 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 7 min.
5b 56752 - 40 min.   11 sides, 44 catches full caught; bumped last ball over from weak catchhand to stronghand caught - I'll call that "clean" #PR in records section. No where near confirming in remaining time of stint - second best were 8 sides thrown to collapse and 6 sides clean.
7b casc - 145 min.   55, 47 throws longest runs plus one or two uncounted longer runs. Sounds worse, little yield, than it felt like good practise, no really bad form phase in between as often, just also failing a lot and got no longer constant really good phase providing results.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]

# 5 ball tricks, #PR, 3 ball tricks, 70 minutes

65' - 5b rev casc - 80 cl, 74, 71 cl, 69, 85, 86, 95, 63, 167 th [*] (#PR, 169 throws, i think, but not 100% sure) throws longest runs.
        [*] - still not ``poised, mastered, fully controlled, utterly stable´´ at all, but rather slaving to the pattern with a bit of control and tensed correcting skills a bit.

5' - 3b inv box - (423-version, 3 on top as horizontal as can, low, short 4-s)   Got one round with active 2 back to normal - feels ``piston´´.   "Slammy" is becoming better.

# 5 ball tricks, #PR, 3 ball tricks, 80 minutes

75' - 5b rev casc - 103, 77, 75, 131 cl new #PR [*], 79, 65, 93, 67 throws longest runs.
[*] - some stumblin' amidst, can't remember what exactly, collision saved(?), bodycatch back to pattern(?), two-hands-clutched-catch back to pattern(?), something, .. so, ugly, maybe invalid. Was a good run, though and also felt like my best ever on this and mostly stable, fluent, feelgood, yet slaving a bit to "go on exactly like this" or it'll crash, some control, but not utter. (+ way to go still)

5' - 3b inv box - exaggerating clawed columns into penguin position of catchhand.

# 5 ball tricks, #PR, 3 ball tricks, #experimental, 80 minutes

70' - 5b rev casc - 67 cl, 117 ~3rd last drop new #PR, 72+, 65 throws longest runs.

10' - 3b inv box - #exp - with a fourth ball parked in stronghand all the time, thinking there might be a spare moment to figure out what to do with it (but didn't, that ``plan´´ only merged into an active 2 with the regular column ball, to instant collapse).

# 7 balls, 5 balls, 8 balls, #PR, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, #efficiency, #otu, #conditions, #ballproperties, 160 minutes

3' 5b warmup.
5b 52567 - 12 min.   No great yield (4th and 5th sides), but okay for short stint and it felt okay.
8b wimpy - 20 min.   #SoL, #technique, #otu, #efficiency - remembered I did too narrow last time, so wanted to use width better; on that behalf, other than usual, did the first pair of throws to collect for calibration once or twice to make sure I wouldn't be throwing ``somewhere up somehow´´, which was very helpful!?   10 catches clean, awkard last 2 catches with several contacts tilting them up before catching them arm to body, new #PR, and confirmed soon after. Further 8 c cl twice, 9 gathers, 12 throws.
7b casc - 115 min.   41, 51, 41, 53, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ] 4 gathers on an impulsive 7 up 180° - maybe not impossible.
5b fastest - 10 min.

#conditions - partly in the rain, made balls slip when wet or stick to hands when slightly moist.
