5b 52567 - ~50 min.   Five times a full fifth side thrown to drop or collapse. Once 21 throws. Only two times 16 c cl - fourth sides, it looks like, were good enough to go on into fifth more often.

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

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~35 min.   Only one 7 gathers launch. (Many 6 g, several 7 in reach.)
5b 52567 - ~45 min.   Max 21 throws to collapse. Two times full fifth side. Two times 16 catches clean.   #SoL - Yet another way of doing with focus on sidechange and focus on which side's turn to be thrown to. That was also a bit about not thinking the first 5 as single throw, but rather "(whole) other side now", thus taking focus away from that (then more automized) 5.   Other issue: I can or should wait longer with the 6-es.
7b casc - ~127 min.   49, 43, break, 43, 45 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 49 ]
7b splits - ~3 min.   10 c cl. Max 7 throws.
#conditions - Lost a lot of time and constant practise feel lighting, relighting and positioning incense and fighting disturbing moskitos.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, #conditions, #injuries, #form, #session, 260 minutes

Hard today: started okey with sun, then it became cold and very windchilly on top; got an ache in the shoulder and couldn't unrestrictedly reach out anymore; also tired, weary, worn; then also my knee gave moderate alert.   Considered abandoning on such conditions, and do some few prop at home under low ceiling with Olympics on, but well .. "anything can happen anytime" and you don't want to give up just like that as long as it's not impossible or badly negligent to go on.   The ache got better and even went away towards end; wind and cold stopped; and somewhat zealous form came back towards end.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.            
9b flashing - ~45 min.   Four times 7 gathers, two of which 8 g in reach. Some good high well-spaced patterns, but never well aligned today.
5b 52567 - ~40 min.   One full fifth side only.   #SoL - went back to thinking it as crescendo ( 52 | 567 | 52 |567 |52 | .. a.s.o., instead "highs over lows": 525 | 67 | 525 | .. a.s.o.), which felt much more fluent, not so staccato, but the necessary emphasis on the 6-es made me drop back to former, or actually a mix of both.
7b casc - ~155 min.   45, [break], 43, 45 cl -- 43 throws runs longer than 40 th. [" -- " = consecutive runs; "cl" = "c cl" = catches clean]   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 45 ]

# 7 balls, #StagesOfLearning, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #conditions, 235 minutes

5b endure - ~5 min.   One attempt 5-high 273 throws. 7-high 89, early fail, 123 throws.
5b fast(est) - ~15 min.   "Fast", eye-nose height throwing from lower chest, 60+ throws. "Fastest", chin-high and lower, not so good, ~20 throws.
5b splits bx - one try, 8 c cl. Didn't feel like doing this, did anyway, but changed to 180° right away ..
5b all up 180° - ~15 min. (from cascade)   One to clean collect. But I was going for "back to cascade".   Also got one 6 or 7 throws consecutives (first stint ever tried this).   Also tried a lot of flashing all up without bodyspins, which was worse than with 180°!? .. got like three full collects for 7- and 9-high in a good lot of attempts.
.. did in between: 5b shower - ~5 min.   Max 8 throws. (nothing clean caught)
5b 52567 - ~75 min.   Max throws was 24 = 6 full sides. One or two more runs into sixth side (>=21 th).   Three or four runs upto 20 throws (full fifth side), partly only one drop on collect (no complete collapse, 2 x 19 gathers, but only 17 catches + 1 drop + 1 gather, each).   Max caught clean was 16 three times (full fourth sides).   Felt like very very near getting it and towards end I did some "keen on result" which was a success: I got very keen. (but no result) ;o])
7b casc - ~120 min.   65, 44, ~55(?), 41, 61 throws runs longer than 40 th.   #SoL - Still investigating about wristyness, speedyness, dwelltime(?), heights - haven't found my pattern(s) yet - my long or very swift easy shorter runs, I get them in very different ways, differently shaped patterns on different heights. I do these days observe myself with pleasure partly redirecting flawly patterns or drifts, back to stable shape.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 65 ]

#conditions - That spot under the bridge is not too nice .. cautious walking on uneven stones, no nice, partly bad light, casually wet dirt, puddles even, .. but due to a ceiling and with spots on it, i often get very good juggling, great runs there. And I do motivating other schedule there too than on grass.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, #new, 5 ball splits variations, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, #otu, 5 balls, 7 balls splits, 8 balls triplex, #conditions, #nature, 300 minutes

[tags in about the order of time invested]

3c basics - ~5 min   15, 11, 7, 20, 7, 34, 9, 7, 47 triples.
3c tricks - ~5 min   34530 - two rounds in a run with cascade in between. one to collect.   #otu - a few thumbrolls were okay (gotten, but no full control or embeddable).   Flourishes awkward, fails. I wanted to freely roll them somehow, but it seems, they stay gripped by at least ring- & middlefinger when swung (not rolled somehow). I'll find out - had them better before.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~45 min.   At least my 5-count bb-s get better again.  #new - Also lately doing fast almost horizontal wide throws just-in-time-``sideclawed´´ with outstretched arm.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~10 min.
5b splits bx - ~20 min.   Max throws to breakdown = 6. Max full collect was three times 8 c cl.
7b splits - ~7 min.   Max 8 throws to breakdown. Max full collect was 14 c cl.
8b [567][22]2 - ~8 min.   Upto 6 triplex thrown.
5b 52567 - ~70 min.   Upto five sides. Barely ever got the flow. Twice 16 catches clean - everything for sure caught with appropriate hand this time [A'll pr this as a first landmark].
7b casc - ~120 min.   41, 41, 41 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 41 ] That's all .. destroys my nice series of 10 days 50+ max runs .. only ``excuse´´: #cond. - fumbling around with incense (against tiny flying ``vampires´´) and wind changing, and also took a long while till I unexpectedly found why I didn't get any launch well: day's moon was right behind pattern on the side and tore my launches to an angle with many collisions (lol?). Never got into a concentrated practise rhythm.
.. more (10') 5b-52567 in between.

#nature - grasshoppers are out. :o)

# 7 balls, #conditions, 135 minutes

warmup 5b wristy 7-high endured .. (if i can't get it with 5b, how would I want it with 7! .. and, indeed, got only 96 throws counted) .. so this is most reasonable preliminary exercise. + 5b "fastest" [discovered "Shortest time for 50 catches" on recordsetter (only knew "fastest 100 c", and "most catches in 1 min " upto now) .. I like this ``sprint´´-discipline. .. I can beat that! <6 seconds estimated. But only one run like ~40 throws in 10-20 minutes, if at all, so not easy to get it, let alone on cam .. I'll rather practise more.]
[ dailyLongestRun7b: 41 ] #conditions - humid = sticky balls = difficult readjusting caught balls within dwelltime
(( I'm learning a lot about moskitoes .. they study you and your visibility range, then sit and bite when you have no hand free and where you don't easily get them (wades, back of upper arm .. they come in vogues (brute force rounds of lead shot), no matter you get two or three just as much will get you .. there's different species (tiny horseflies; some avoid wind, some don't mind wind; some just gather, not bite; somes are fast, some stay sitting when you slap them) .. Xo| .. ))
