# #conditions, 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 167 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 27 min.
5b 56752 - 25 min.   Not over 5 rounds clean.
9b flashing - 35 min.   Three times 7 gathers.
7b casc - 80 min.   [ daily7b II: 35 ]
#conditions - unnervingly irritating and freakin' disturbing wind plus windchill where I expected perfect spring weather - usually I take this as a challenge to do with modifier "with notable wind", but not today - it's not mainly any balls slightly aberring, but when looking high with nothing but the sky as background, with wind pushing now more, then less a.s.o., you slightly lose stable orientation and stable stance on an anyway also uneven meadow (comparable to standing still on a wobbly platform or mattress) - very very bad session - rather a futile fight to the marrow today

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #conditions, #jugglingSpots, 165 minutes

( #conditions, #jugglingSpots - started raining just when i started, unexpectedly with wind & rain coming under the bridge, so I stood in windshade facing the pillar doing 5b .. later without or less rain, at my normal spot there, the cobbles were muddy and had to clean dropped balls a lot :-| another lesson on for when in doubt to choose a spot with granted conditions )
5b casc varied - 10 min.
5b 56752 - 60 min.   Upto 6 rounds clean.
7b casc - 90 min.   51, 43, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
5b fastest - 5 min.

Total practice time: 165 minutes

Location: dirty uneven cobbles under bridge

# 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.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #injuries, #conditions, #anatomy, 110 minutes

5b warmup, casc varied - ~5 min.   #anatomy - Ripped a fibre \ small bundle in my upper right wade when jumping up for a very high throw. I seem to have been lucky that it seems to have been a muscle used for jumping very high mainly with utterly stretched leg, so I since got along just hobbling some, now. Still, surely a question of weeks to heal unto full leg movement, walking, stance.
5b 52567 - ~15 min.   Into 6th side. Two times into 5th side. Two 4 sides clean collected.
7b casc - ~90 min.   37, 39, 35[*], 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 43 ]
      [*] 35 th - this was best run .. smooth, low, snapped in right from launch, then rolled like by itself.

#conditions - Oh, .. forgot:   used vinyl gloves against chilly temperatures - worked great, almost like barehanded.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, #conditions, 210 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.   80+ throws 7-high.
9b flashing - ~35 min.   Once 8 gathers. Two times 8 g in reach. Two times 7 g.
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.
7b casc - ~107 min.   nothing, nothing, .., [break], 2' of 5b high, 47, 41, 43 cl throws runs longer than 40 th.   ( #conditions - fighting mosquitos with (natural) spray, incense, mosquito-net .. got one into the bronchus, one or two into the eye - horrible stint. Spring and fall are definitely better seasons. )   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 47 ]
5b fastest - ~3 min.

# 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 ]

Total practice time: 260 minutes
