# 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.

5b casc varied - 5 min.
5b all up 180° - 5 min.   Once to clean collect.
5b 52567 - 40 min.   7 sides to drop.   #otu - Attempted another start with [42]-first-throw, which worked just a bit unused to, but okaey, but [5222] remains more familiar so far.
7b casc - 120 min.   39, 41, 43, 41, 45, 39, 41 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 45 ]

# 1 ball, #blind, #otu, 5 minutes

late night
5' - 1b bbb - 1-es (straight pass) and first time attempting 3-s (throw in a bow and hope it lands where catchhand is, or catchhand finds where the ball will land). And same around the body.

# 7 balls, #technique, #otu, #StagesOfLearning, 70 minutes

5b casc varied - ~5 min.
7b casc - ~65 min.   Felt good today.   Great launches right into good pattern, good focus on pattern's top: #technique, #otu, #SoL - Did new way of launching: usually my launches are good and get right into pattern well, when I throw already the first two to four throws up somewhat heartily high, .. today I was in a speedy mood once again and did the first four throws >lower (which seems paradox) and the last three throws higher than usual, sort of [5222][522][522][52][92]99 (into felt 9-high or more than high enough 7-s, then). Could then pull those patterns down into similarly smooth & poised lower runs.   Great yield today was 37, 38, 57, 43, 44, 63, 43 cl, 47 cl, 40 throws longest runs.   #otu - Finished by doing some as high as I can halfway hope to control, right from or soon after launch, about good 9-height that was; seems to be a great exercise to do regularly, given once I got the knack in a stint.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]

# 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #technique, 5prop mix, #otu, #new, 165 minutes

40' - 5b "easiest" \ endure - 707 throws longest runs.   New way of doing, #technique - Instead of catching with fingers and throwing from there, even rolling off middle- and ringfinger at release, and scooping with wrist, right at start of stint, it struck me, I was rolling off the balls from ringfinger plus pinky!? So, sort of just the opposite way of how I partly do reverse cascade. Balls like moving horizontally inside the hand, instead from palm to fingertips as usual (when rolling, which is yet another way). I must have been doing like that before with 3b or 5b fast, but only now was really aware of it and I tried and did like that willingly, which worked and was very smooth. Also, there's no or less wrist-scoop, only a flick along hand's long axis when flicking up with ringfinger and pinky at release.

30' - 5 mixed props, 4b1c - An exeptional 10 rounds; rest upto 7 rounds.
          [ n.t.s.: 6 tcl, 7 tod½, 10 tod½, 6 tbd, 7 tod½, 7 tod, ]

8' - 5 mixed props, 3b + 1c (tiny) + 1b large - Upto 20+ catches to breakdown. 3 rounds clean collected. [ #otu, #new ]

85' - 5b rev casc - 51, 53, 67, 49, 57, 51, 49, 53, 53, 63 throws longest runs.
