3' 5b warmup.**5b 52567 - 12 min.** No great yield (4th and 5th sides), but okay for short stint and it felt okay.

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

15' - 5b "easiest" \ endure - not over ~200 throws. (wasn't into forcing if a long run would not come in easy mode)

28' - 5 mixed props, 4b1c - Upto 13 rounds (clean, but halve).

[ *n.t.s.*: 8 tod, 9 tod½½, 8 tcl, 13 tcl½, 8 tod, 11 tode½, ]

17' - 5 mixed props, 3b2c - A 4 and a 3 rounds clean runs, and another into 4th round run to collapse.

[ *n.t.s.*: 3 V, 4 cl, 3 cl, ]

95' - 5b rev casc - 59, 61, **67**, 55 cl, **67 **cl, **71 **throws longest runs. #technique, #efficiency - Again, also here, getting the feel of the `right´ poised smooth rolling pattern seems most crucial to strive for.

40' - 5b single bx - 4 bx per run to collect but 1 drop. 3/r to clean collect. 6/r (! best ever) to a clean

collect.

(#collat., #eff.) - It occurred to me, that in contrast to doing consecutive bx-es, I am

by doing single ones also exercising that transition from and to cascade much more in

compare.

35' - 5b rev casc - Caught clean: twice 15, once, 17, and one peak run 25 (! at last, after several days not

getting a long run). Max thrown to drop(s) was 21.

**5b casc varied - ~10 min.** warmup. endured 368 throws. 168 throws wristy 7-high. ~20 throws wristy 9-high, but not so swift, rather tensed with somewhat too much effort.**9b flashing - ~25 min.** Two times 7 gathers; once 8 clearly in reach. Some good patterns in the air.**5b 52567 - ~35 min.** Finally a long run, way above fifth side: new sweet #PR 32 catches clean (8 sides or rounds) from launch to clean collect; went to collect without need in good pattern, in order to secure a clean collect for the very long run. ( i have no idea, how to rate this as a breakthrough on the pattern, or as just constantly improving on my average, or as just one exeptional irrational (lol) peak run on a good day in a good phase ). Had shortly before already beaten my old record with a full caught sixth side, 24 c cl and it had felt like "more!".

Furthermore, got: 24 throws 1 drop. Another sixth side thrown to collapse. Six fifth sides thrown to drop(s). Seven times 16 c cl - guess I can start ignoring those latter fourth sides now.

#SoL - The melody, the algorithm, of that siteswap, as I've been thinking as two high over two low throws of (

#efficiency #season - Time to take stock on practise time invested for this: Started April 17, did short stints upto may, 20, only then ~Ø 60 min almost daily, which makes about roughly 105d à 60' = over 100 hours struggling to keep this pattern rolling. Waaaay more than I expected (thought, a few, maybe several weeks, an' it's become months), but it's five balls after all and not at all trivial stuff. Still need to confirm, get it stable, reliable, and endure it some, before I can be too proud of it ..

Did my second ever

Expecting any results in such stints doesn't make much sense .. it's mostly blundering and getting one success on like ten fails + picking up drops most the time - "success" meaning any not total collapse, not mere chaos, but like thrown + normal afterthrows or + a rethrow done - best I got was like almost a full collect on a °27[75]° rethrow, and a second matching rev throw for

**3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~20 min.****5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~10 min.** 5-, 7-, 9-high.**9b flashing - ~20 + ~50 min.** Took a while 'til I got good first two to four throws with full hands on upto great height (doing higher, than necessary later, makes sure, I got and will again then get these well). #efficiency #SoL - this is not about getting them caught, but about putting them well in the air for five more to follow fired up through the middle. At a point, when first four come well several times, that good start will downright ask for automatically throwing the rest too without delay - like 'ripe' for whole launch, then. Got four times 7 gathers, seven times 6 g, once 8 g in reach, and a few good, promising patterns put into the air. ( Again: higher is better currently! ((Else I jus' get battered a lot)) )**5b 52567 - ~50 min.** Four fifth sides (~22-24 throws) to drop or collapse. Two times 16 c cl. Getting nearer and nearer, but short phases only; still feels like slowly improving, maybe a breakthrough ahead. All (focus, attention, effort, wait on, emphasis, ..) on the weakest throw, the

**3c basics - ~10 min** 353 doubles. 15, 9, 19 triples. 5 quadruples. High singles .. first just all above head, then doing with stiff wrist throwing from whole arm (learned that here on the Edge, #technique), went better, higher, but queer to stretch out arms into the air with every throw. High doubles, okay, about two club lengths above head (spinning from wrist again). Very high, uncontrolled (just fast) spin, no matter how many spins.**3c tricks - ~10 min** *34530*. So-so, did some too narrow into having to stop (no tunnel left for next throw). Almost got one sequence back to cascade (afterthrows were tipcatches to breakdown). Single throws *bxx*. (embedded in casc) Dared some with weakhand. Thinking of giving the bx some time by initializing with a double before. Should back to 2c with this. Attempts on *flats* and *441* a catastrophe (<1').**3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~25 min.** Racketing\slapping; uta (*flying* under, not *throwing* under); rev casc; bx; drops; fast stuff (*rev--normal--normal*).**5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~15 min.** 7-, 9-high.
