# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, #otu, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 296 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 47 min.   [among usual ..] #otu - Tried 423 (which I have nearly never done), intending to ``actively´´ let my arm hang all way down on every 2 - 423 was great to now know how it feels, but deplorably didn't get any constant swaying arms gimmicks done (doing without throwing and in rhythm was puzzling here).
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   ~120 throws about 6-high. 200 throws on low pattern.
9b flashing - 52 min.   Twelve times 7 gathers, only one of which 8 g in reach. Hardly any rethrows (only very few unreasonable or bad late ones).
5b 56752 - 57 min.   6th adn 7th clean sides and an 8th side to one last drop.
7b casc - 135 min.   49, 44, 47, 49, 45, 43, 57 cl throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, #otu, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, 255 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~30 min.   #otu - Got a few front-to-backhand el-curl-flickups, doing as many 4-s as needed (two? or three?) with the other hand, back to cascade with a tennis throw (over the rest-pattern for nothing to collide) flicked from handback; but not more than one per run.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
[changed to under bridge as grass is too high to easily find all balls in]
9b flashing - 22 min.   Tried to get into rethrows soon after getting my first 7 gathers. Best run was 6 rethrows into 6 gathers, which even with no control, just hammering everything up again, felt great, like a glimpse into running it; and there being nothing dropbound during like two-three-four throws with all balls in the air. Tried to confirm, but it hadn't been anything, I could seize. And a few more runs with 2-5 rethrows.
5b 56752 - 48 min.   Best run was 8 sides clean.
Thunder & lighting were ahead and the wind grew stronger, allowing for only a small pattern windshielded by my body:
5b fastest - ~15 min.   Got a 45 throws run.
When the rain and tempest came, the stronger wind was soon gone again, so I could proceed with my `king's discipline´ ..
7b casc - 135 min. ( partly with colder hands and balls that feel harder then, less squishy, then with vinyl-gloves for a while)   Got 49, 53, 47 throws longest runs. Nextbest a good lot 35-40 throws. (In spite little yield ..) Partly felt great, though, smooth, somewhat well controlled.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 7 balls splits, #otu, 218 minutes

5b casc varied - 12 min.   high. wristy high. fastest. #otu - tried hopping (with both feet) with every throw of the cascade.
5b 56752 - 53 min.   Two 9th sides, one clean, one full collected ugly wrong finish. A good bunch of 7th and 8th sides with mostly unclean finish.
7b splits - 13 min.   Upto 9 duplex thrown into drop(s), maybe an uncounted longer run.
7b casc - 140 min.   69, 50, 43, 53, 43 throws longest runs plus two that I forgot to note 43?, 53?, plus two uncounted longer runs here too.   #otu - Never got used to that gap when sometimes continuing with 6b after drop, when rhythm and feel were good; now trying to maybe find into 77772 as an option in such cases.   [ daily7b II: 69 ]

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, #improvement, #structuredPractise, #otu, 200 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 7 min.
5b 56752 - 28 min.   Doing around emphasized 6-es mainly. Pretty good yield again: A 7th, two 8th and a 9th sides clean, apart from also several 6th to 8th sides into drop(s).   #improvement #structuredPractise - also without breaking any PR, I see improvement just as much in needing less time, shorter stints, to find into pattern and upto average runs and average daily best runs. (used to need an hour, 1½ formerly)   #otu - Also tried on 4b-156 again just a bit to check what goes, failing -> adjourned `` 'til cow comes home ´´ (would need longer extra stints).
7b casc - 135 min.   45, 49, 53, 57 (cl?), 51 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

# 3 heavy balls, #otu, 7 balls, #efficiency, #endupatt, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 7 balls splits, 315 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 120 min.   #otu - bx into 90° turn; got it a couple of times once all around (four turns to 360°) turning into stronghand's bx, then with weakhand's once around too.   Ell-roll-flicks(?) - got about 10 in a 4-count, only two in a 2-count, so `folded´ the 2-count.   Some work on past under the other arm throws (upto in a 3-count, and caught in a mix of claws and-or penguins)
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.
5b 56752 - 63 min.   Three times 6 sides clean. One 8th side to collapse.
7b splits - 10 min.   12 c cl. 9 duplex thrown to collapse.
7b casc - 112 min.   Tried to focus on getting best easiest pattern and technique, going to early collects - feels much more effective -, easy going also, instead exhausting on result, and got 43, 47, 69 (unsuspected, surprising, right after I `woke up´ from a rather dull phase), 59 (gorgeous run, smooth, easy, untensedly snapped-in) throws longest runs, plus a half-of-it counted run at least 43 th maybe 49.   [ daily7b II: 69 ]

# 5 ball tricks, 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, #otu, 5 heavy balls, 7 balls splits, 9 balls flashing, 8 balls, 257 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 47 min.   incl. 5-high claws, okay. 55500 flashes unprecise, risky (for health - balls are pretty hard).   #otu - Also - just a bit - tried a start with outstretched arms up + keep last hand high, but didn't get that far.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   9-high.   As high as would go wristy without effort ( --> between 5- and 7-high ).
Alternated between ..
  5b all up 180° - 12/2 min.   One back into 6 cascade throws clean caught. One into 5 th + drop.
.. and ..
  5b 75751 - 12/2 min.   Got 6 throws from cascade ..55555..757517 almost a few times, one drop each or so.
5b 56752 - 72 min.   One 9th side clean. One 7th side clean. Many 6th sides, but only two or three of which clean.
7b splits - 13 min.   9 duplex thrown. 6 duplex thrown was second best. Best clean was only 10 c cl.
9b flashing - 13 min.   Didn't feel like exhausting on this today and got like nothing ( <= 6 gathers a lot).
8b wimpy - 10 min.   12 throws to drops. Nothing clean.
7b casc - 80 min.   49, 55, 43 cl, 45, 53, 47, 53, 65, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 65 ]

# 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.
