# 7 balls, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 225 minutes

5b casc varied - 10 min.   when including "fastest" here, then not as going for result, but as overall speediness \ nimbleness preparation for all that is to come.
5b 56752 - 45 min.   Two 6th ounds clean. A 7th round to collapse. An 8th round clean.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Four times 7 gathers. Once each, 11, 12, 13 throws.
7b casc - 120 min.   40-50-throws-day today: 47, 43, 49, 43, 47, 43, 43, 49, 49, 46, 44, 43 throws longest runs.   #endupatt - Got it "throwing under last ball" well a lot, but hardly ever with focus on and welltimed into pattern's top's rolling ``dice eyes´´ ever. Not really snapped-in as should.   [ daily7b II: 49 ]

# 7 balls, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, #mentec, #endupatt, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 155 minutes

5b warmup, casc varied, shower - 15 min.   Clean flash of shower; and 6 and 7 throws' attempts of it to collapse. #technique (focus) - Firing up to the same not all too high spot.   Also some "fastest" here already again.
5b 52567 - 25 min.   Bad; was happy with only a 5.th side clean at last.
7b casc - 110 min.   Never got that wheel turnin'; hardly ever got a well-shaped top of pattern to go on from .. guess my main fault that kept me from finding my pattern and connecting to its top well, was, that I wanted too much and did too tensed most the time.
[ #technique, #SoL, #mentec(?), #endupatt ] - Maybe, for the pattern to snap-in, once it's up and finished launching, you have to do a lot of things - if not everything - right in just one instant .. do an extra switch into "keep-up"-mode, which is a hurdle to take to get it rollin'.
Got 43, 41, 43 cl, 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 45 ]
5b fastest - 5 min.

# 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 ball tricks, #blind, #endupatt, 235 minutes

10' - 3b blind - Worked myself up to 15 c cl, 24 c cl. - Long term intending to vary (conquer more airspace controlled, wide, high, front planes), then 5b blind, (more flashes, 5 c cl, and) 6.throw caught.   On 5-height wasn't as obvious .. failed after few throws.

10' - 3b wide:
wide & smashy -- wide & smashy -- normal throw -- back to middle & smashy -- back to middle & smashy -- normal throw -- .. a.s.o.
  Three period, 2 emphasized throws.
  The normal throw tends to become wide too, so allowed for that (doing it not all as wide, restrained) to
    get the pattern running. (But) Got 8 throws (only so far).

100' - 5b wristy, easiest, most relaxed patt - Pattern went near chin, like Nadir Le Jongleur (long not heard of him). Did not drift into fast low pattern today, because I worked on effective lever by throwing from fingers and pretty loose wrists ("lax" and "unleashed" mode seem to be getting better).   This time, allowed for some effort for a few recovery throws, but not too effortish or over whole periods, as for "finding back into that easy pattern" (e.g. when bx-ing or ro-ing or simply enduring on result). 165, 173 throws runs that way.

25' - 5b endure - Not doing this mainly (but here also) for result, but for feeling into enduring for 7b.  Had to go over 289, 237, 223, 245, (and earlier fails in between), until I got a 859 throws run (got me sweating, forearms burning a bit).

70' - 5b rev casc - 35, 31, 35 cl, 31, 37, throws runs.

# 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, #endupatt, 140 minutes

80' - 5b easy, relaxed pattern - Allowed for no effort or tension to arouse, rather lax even.   Wristy, trying between loose and unleashed. With \ without thumb. Near fingertips \ near palm \ rolling. Small scoop versus flabby scoop, relaxing a millisecond on dwelltime. Naturally falls into fast, low pattern (casually? when succeeding to do fully relaxed? .. still investigating), but I want it a bit higher, round what-I'm-tall-high, thus slower, to have spare time for recoveries, and the whole being a bit comfortable when enduring.   Gave runs about 50-100 throws, few upto ~123, ~150, 219.

 5' - 5b endure - A 347 throws run (but was still on ``lax´´ rather than ``fight to keep up´´).

55' - 5b rev casc - 37 cl, 49 runs.

# 7 balls, 9b flashing attempts, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 8 balls, #endupatt, #technique, 165 minutes

( chilly these last days; today was partly freezy (~10°C + windchill) on the limit to needing gloves )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~45 min.   Five times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach.   13 throws with 6 gathers.
8b wimpy - ~20 min.   Upto seven pairs thrown to drop(s).   Not over 7 catches (three times, i think) and nothing clean, though.   One wonderful pattern with 12 c cl in reach, but blundered at collecting (balls bounced and slipped after touching).
5b 52567 - ~20 min.   28 gathers (seventh side). Two times 24 c cl (sixth sides).
5b lax, lazy, easy - ~5 min. (digestive easy goin' after snackbreak)   merged into some "fastest" and some wristy 7-high throwing. ( #endupatt - ) Into "fastest" happened in a way that had occurred formerly when doing 5b "easiest pattern" in context of going for enduring >1,000: ( #technique - ) Upper arms tight to body, forearms held upward in small angle with hands on upper chest level .. now throwing very low, small pattern almost from wrists and fingers only (forearms only slightly following). Very easy juggling 5b, but not an endurance pattern (at my current level) as it needs high accurracy doing from wrists and fingers only.
7b casc - ~55 min.   43, 44, 49, 47, 49 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 49 ]

# 7 balls, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 8 balls, #new, 185 minutes

[remembered, no notes taken:]
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~35 min.   Several times 7 gathers.   Upto 5 rethrows.   #SoL - Launching through a ``(vertical) strip of (higher and higher) crossing points´´ for my ladder launch might give nicer patterns and do less collisionbound launches. I can aim lower and needn't bother about what happens high up in the top, but can rely on throws coming well .. all provided I got into whole launches well and do that aiming accurately.
8b wimpy - ~5 min.   Two times six pairs thrown.   Slowly getting back to that feeling of it being simple, that I had when first trying the 8b-wimpy and got the flash in one the first attempts ( but completely lost that and got entangled into focussing other stuff like width, hand's position, angles thrown ). I have to just throw from near the middle up, aiming rather narrow on height, near the body and in the front plane. I can do somewhat lower for better control, less accurate being good enough then.
5b 52567 - ~20 min.   A few full fifth, two sixth and one seventh side to drop(s). Best full caught was 20 gathers clean.
7b casc - ~105 min.   49, 47, 75 (blundered on going to collect), 65, 57, and a few more (51(?), 49(?), .. ? ) throws runs longer than 40 th.   I can partly, in good phases, rely on good launches and on getting right into keeping the top rollin', soas I can launch with the intention of enduring like I would with 5 balls. I'm then going for like 12 sets of 8 throws = ~100 catches. ( But there's still just as many as ever less good phases where I don't get that simple ``cascady spirit´´, not a clean pattern launched, early fails even, liable to do unwristy with effort and-or too far ahead, and forcing too much. )   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 75 ]

In between did one, two or a few attempts on   [ #new ] 5b splits crosshand overhead (two throws to collapse).   7b all up 180° (one couldn't tell what I tried there).   7b launch: quadplex -- triplex -- synch duplexes ([4x6x],[4x6x]) (get these to clean collect every once in a while). Also regularly few times per stint doing launch: 1 up kicked -- split triplex -- split triplex to collect .. lately also into two to four cascade throws.   7b single round °27[57]°.

# 7 balls, #endupatt, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 195 minutes

5b wristy 7-hi - ~5 min.
5b 52567 - ~15 min.   Upto fourth sides thrown.
7b casc - ~175 min.   55, 43, 63, 48, 41, 45, 63, 41, 43, 51, 43, 57 throws runs longer than 40 th.   #endupatt - I need to scoop better (it's still not automized) in order to avoid (drift into) wide juggling and in order ot get a spacier pattern.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 63 ]

# 7 balls, #endupatt, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, 3 clubs basics, 5 heavy balls, 7 balls splits, 8 balls triplex, 5 balls, 270 minutes

3c basics - ~5 min   260+ doubles. 68 triples!
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~30 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~10 min.
5b splits bx - ~8 min.   Remembered to "aim where I want them land". Experimented on dwell-times. No longer run.
7b splits - ~5 min.   18 c cl.
8b [567][22]2 - ~7 min.   Twice 14 c (5 triplex thrown + last dropped).
5b wristy 7-high and 5-high - ~10 min.   7-hi ~: 50, 60, 30, 140+.
5b fastest - ~10 min.   33, 39 throws runs.
5b 52567 - ~45 min.   A few fifth sides again, one sixth, i think (don't after each run remember which hand I started with and too focussed for counting sidechanges).   #SoL - Main issue: 6-s, but can now precise: especially those from weakhand (so obvious, but you don't always notice the obvious when struggling for control).
7b casc - ~140 min.   54, 44, 47, 45, 44, 42, 52, 54, 41, 41, 73!*, 49 throws runs longer than 40 th.   #endupatt - *73 - longest throws run ever, but to breakdown with drops, only 4 gathers. Hoping on some ``endurance-control´´ whatever that is .. I often have to, at a point (strange attractor, 35-37 throws), push to keep height, then again in a rhythm of #n throws ( > a period, maybe ) it seems. Shall maybe get this pulsing up<->down in the rhythm of breathing .. [as Jeremy Shafer describes dailyLongestRun7b: 73 ]

[Commas = timeline; " -- " = consecutive runs]   Great stint, very ``cascady´´ again (wasn't so much these last days) .. I'm really ready for much more, just don't always get it and if, slips and collisons can happen on my few very long runs, so I'll just need to stabilize and get more and longer of such good phases where I do everything right (#endupatt - wristy, fingerbasket, speedy, feed top under last ball, stand nearly right inside front plane).   #SoL - New flaw spotted: The launch is often the cause for bad phases: fourth throw collides with second. Else, in good phases, it comes well fully automized.   #conditions - At latest hour amidst bulks of moskitoes begrudged success withstood and prevailed :o}   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 63 ]

# 7 balls, 5 balls, #endupatt, 175 minutes

5b casc varied - ~10 min.   Accurate 9-high. Fastest.

[Commas = timeline; "cl" = "c cl" = catches clean]   Waiting on clicking into that cascady top forgood: In a very clean and swift, maybe precise pattern (and only then, else it tears apart), I can orient on the last ball up to aim next one, which is what I mean with "cascady", and it makes juggling it, keeping it up, simple. New PR overdue.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 59 ]
