# 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 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #structuredPractise, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 180 minutes

5b casc varied - ~3 min.   5-high. Wristy 7-, 9-high.
9b flashing - ~40 min.   Four times 7 gathers.   #structuredPractise - Keep wanting to part this stint into two parts - one going for collect, and one going for rethrows (with special focus on accurate first four throws) no matter what, but i always want to get 8 g first .. (so i don't get that far).
5b 52567 - ~40 min.   Three sixth sides, one of which to clean collect, 24 c cl. At least four full fifth sides that i was aware of.
7b casc - ~92 min.   43, 53 cl, 43, 49, 49, 60 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 60 ]
5b fastest - ~5 min.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #PR, #StagesOfLearning, #efficiency, #season, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 7 ball tricks, #structuredPractise, 165 minutes

5b casc varied - ~10 min.   warmup. endured 368 throws. 168 throws wristy 7-high. ~20 throws wristy 9-high, but not so swift, rather tensed with somewhat too much effort.
9b flashing - ~25 min.   Two times 7 gathers; once 8 clearly in reach. Some good patterns in the air.
5b 52567 - ~35 min.   Finally a long run, way above fifth side: new sweet #PR 32 catches clean (8 sides or rounds) from launch to clean collect; went to collect without need in good pattern, in order to secure a clean collect for the very long run.  ( i have no idea, how to rate this as a breakthrough on the pattern, or as just constantly improving on my average, or as just one exeptional irrational (lol) peak run on a good day in a good phase ).  Had shortly before already beaten my old record with a full caught sixth side, 24 c cl and it had felt like "more!".
  Furthermore, got: 24 throws 1 drop. Another sixth side thrown to collapse. Six fifth sides thrown to drop(s). Seven times 16 c cl - guess I can start ignoring those latter fourth sides now.
  #SoL - The melody, the algorithm, of that siteswap, as I've been thinking as two high over two low throws of ( low--Hm.--low--higher self--high ), I am now actually doing & thinking as ``effort-algorithm´´, as ``guide to the amount of force put into each single digit´´:   no effort low -- Hm. -- no effort low -- power-self -- good thrust 7,   different thrusts in the right rhythm .. of how, what and when the hands and forearms are supposed to feel, so to say.

#efficiency #season - Time to take stock on practise time invested for this: Started April 17, did short stints upto may, 20, only then ~Ø 60 min almost daily, which makes about roughly 105d à 60' = over 100 hours struggling to keep this pattern rolling. Waaaay more than I expected (thought, a few, maybe several weeks, an' it's become months), but it's five balls after all and not at all trivial stuff. Still need to confirm, get it stable, reliable, and endure it some, before I can be too proud of it ..

7b casc - ~75 min.   43, 50, [tricks°], 69, [tricks°], 44, [bx°], -, -, throws runs longer than 40 th.
  Did my second ever 7b trivial tricks - 10' short stint in between:   °27[75]°.   single claw.   absurd all up 180°; got them all up and the bodyspin - 4 gathers lol, but those 4 were late throws and landed straight up, so behind me after the spin and I collected them sort of overhead (had to laugh out loud about myself or some juggling demon foolin' me there haha).   bx very very hard, but don't seem impossible.
  Expecting any results in such stints doesn't make much sense .. it's mostly blundering and getting one success on like ten fails + picking up drops most the time - "success" meaning any not total collapse, not mere chaos, but like thrown + normal afterthrows or + a rethrow done - best I got was like almost a full collect on a °27[75]° rethrow, and a second matching rev throw for fast-tennis (casc--rev--normal--normal--normal--normal--rev--a.s.o.). But it opens precious new perspectives on the ground pattern when for doing claws, you have to spot a ball to prepare for clawing that one from high and throwing it with a fast handmovement, or else for doing fast-tennis, you have to see the whole pattern to fit the fifth revthrow in well, or else, when doing °27[75]°, it's a question of timing and splitting the duplex vertically well within two dwelltimes (adjusting balls, get thumb in between, get bigger scoop done). So, long stints of this would really mean to challenge your karma, whereas short stints of this, even though mostly ("only", actually) failing, give new insights on, and skills for, your groundstate.
