# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #learningSiteswaps, #ThinkAs, #mentec, 5 balls, 175 minutes

Overall mostly flabby form today, exept for some better chunks when a raincloud, wind and temperature freshened up the somewhat airless muggy weather. Also sore nudging lumbal area those last days. So mostly "work, holding on", hoping on good phases and return of good form, rather than fun today.
5b 56752 - 30 min. Upto into 9th side, 8 sides clean; maybe few more over 8 s in longer uncounted runs.
7b casc - 103 min. 45, 51 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 51 ]
Preventively stopped that stint on a pull in the shoulder and did some ..
more 5b 56752 - 17 min. Upto 8 sides again.
5b 75751 - 13 min. #learningSiteswaps #mentec #ThinkAs - like for 753, also now did two same-hand high 7 throws intending to create a gap ( maintaining ground-state for any other all regular throws ), then use that gap for that 15 still from same hand. That way, got once the sequence fro to cascade and clean collect; first or second time since trying this, many `almosts´ preceding, so glad I got this `landmarked´. Once 757515 from cascade to instant clean collect.
5b cascade - 12 min. Just killed some time left, intending without effort, but didn't get over 135 throws trying a longer run.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, #learningSiteswaps, #enduswap, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 203 minutes

5b 56752 - 38 min.   6-7-8 sides. One 9th, one 12th side (both to collapse).   Today, had a track of what exactly every run fails on in the end -
  o too low 7,
  o too much spread, unclean aiming,
  o collisions, mostly 6 onto previous 5,
  o my usual drift into bodyturn towards weakhandside.
#SoL #learningSiteswaps #enduswap - So, alas, no major distinct flaw in particular to work and put special attention on, but well spread over all issues that happen in unstable pattern, not utterly comfortably snapped in, no full control over pattern, timing, heights, thrusts, an' everything. Guess, I'll have to work these off one by one, or better: find an issue that covers most these problems in one; e.g. constantly aiming every single ball well on the right height (like you do when learning sth new), or better to its right spot in the air (unlike with cascade where all throws are alike), is a candidate for that (?); or tune and perfection the `rhythm's melody´, get the rhythm to the point (?); or - in that same sense - short controlled runs in hunt for swiftest pattern (higher? lower? how wristy or controlled by forearms too? .. ) (?); or slave better to pattern's geometry (??); ..
  There might also be an issue, I haven't noticed at all or enough accounted for .. maybe my weakhand's asymmetry  ( that I always took as is, which works fine so far for e.g. also cascade endurance and e.g. also few ball stuff )  .. maybe it shows up notably more and hinders more in complex s'swaps.
  A juggling pattern, including hand's motion and brain's work, just has so many properties to be accounted for.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 5 min.   (just warmup on weight for 5b 200g)
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   40, 77, 113 wristy 6-high.   279 cl 5-high.
9b flashing - 15 min.   Two times 7 gathers.          
7b casc - 140 min.   45, 53, [short snack break, 10'], 51 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]

Total practice time: 203 minutes

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, #otu, #ThinkAs, #learningSiteswaps, 5 ball splits variations, 5 balls, 235 minutes

5b splits oh xhd - 8 min. (from launch) A mess. I caught the one or other ball without uncrossing my hands. Maybe one duplex thrown to collect. Several attempts on the second throw to ultimatelol collapse. Want to try to get a few throws again sometimes.
5b °753° - 17 min. The only (but well matching) related thing I've done before is 3b-531 [ #otu ]. #learningSiteswaps - I wasn't sure it was valid and what throw would be next after throwing that sequence. After a few puzzling attempts, I figured out the 7 makes a gap, and the 3 closes it again, so it must be "back to cascade". #ThinkAs - Thinking it like that ( "one gap in mind at release of 7, then focus on closing that gap with the 3" - and: only two other-than-5-throws from same hand ) made me get 55555..75355 twice to a collect and several `almosts´ back to cascade.
9b flashing - 70 min. Only three times 7 gathers (one of which 8 g in reach). One 8 g.
7b casc - 135 min. [ daily7b II: 45 ]
5b fastest - 5 min.
