**3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 22 min.** *Behind back* can't seem to get them in a fast count, only 5-count at most, let alone consecutives (impossible so far). "Fastest".**5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 3 min.** 160 throws wristy 6-high, also smooth, rather untensed. (i think, this is important for enduring 7b cascade, .. i will later think: "Keep going just like with these"). 239 throws comfortable 5-high.**9b flashing - 35 min.** Three times 7 gathers. Two times 8 g in reach. Also some good upto 3 rethrows again. Something really seemed possible today. #SoL #mentec - hard to explain, but i think, it works best to sort of visualize the pattern running on height *right before* launching ( instead trying rhythms and heights for each pair (stronghand throwing, weakhand following) of balls launched, and instead of working on tuning, calibrating and coordinating a lot on merely the launch itself ), or just imagine and visualize a good height, then *orientate* on that `result´ of the launch when launching, sort of *anticipating* all balls up and *intending* to focus on feeding the top. Maybe this goes with focussing more on the later throws sort of `fulfilling´ that intention. (if all that makes sense). #conditions - the meadow was just a tiny bit moist making the balls only slightly sticky (not too much) - which was bad for fast stuff with few balls before - but now it prevented unwanted double-multi-releses and was now also good for catching with much fewer slips and better grip. ( I was prepared to skip my 5b s'swap stint for those very good 9b conditions and good form that i also had, but rain came, so left it at that. )**5b 56752 - 32 min.** [

Someone - in half the middle of nowhere - from a distance, without asking me first, pointed a drone right at me. He later said, he was only filming the landscape and sundown and I could hardly be seen only very small, but there would have been miles for such a take with

Stopped that and did

#nature - When watching the rain, waiting, I noticed sudden little steam jets that seemed to come out of the soil .. I imagined an insect or small animal originating these in some way I never heard of before, or maybe some rare chemical phenomenon (lithium?? sulfur??). .. It was cherry-pip-like little beige mushrooms it turned out, puffballs (that I know only much bigger, squash- or golfball size), i guess.

A bit chaotic of a session, but glad, I didn't lose too much time (like last two days) and got some good juggling done.

# 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, #mentec, 100 minutes

100' - 5b rev casc - After four times 57 throws, got an 87 th longest run. - Getting the right howto enduring feeling still isn't obvious and always needs a while (~1h) to fully find back into. .. Weakhand tends to not scoop well to the outside; and aiming well is into smaller regions (left up \ right up), I think, than e.g. normal cascade - less room for bailout of bad throws -> more precision needed; and constantly *anticipating* [ #mentec ] where last ball up will be on its highest point when already throwing next needs either that special (deep strong right) focus, concentration, just that *mindset*, or else a snapped-in pattern flowing by itself, which all I haven't yet reliably automized.

**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.

[ #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 ]
