# 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 ball tricks, 2 ball tricks, 250 minutes

Doing most of my winter schedule for indoors.
2b 'drop-offs' - 7 min.   One (rather passive) hand always up, only dropping off. The other (rather active) hand throws high columns and hands these same columns over to 'drop'-hand (at that hand's level), then catches the last dropped off ball low to do next column with it. Sort of Statue of Liberty, but high balls are handed over (instead simply dropped).  
3b freestyle; 52413 - 5 min.   (reachover 4-s as described earlier)  
3b freestyle; rev casc; ellrollers to skip up - 7 min.   led to: 3b consecutive 3.rd beat my ellrollers to a skip up - 20 min.   I can do ellrollers to skip up almost anytime and half well aimed, but with stronghand only. Doing an ellroller to skip up with weakhand takes much longer and more concentration, so in a cascade, I catch two balls with stronghand to have plenty of time for weakhand's ellroller + skip, then throw as multiplex the two held balls into that skip landing ( 3 3 3 2 3_ELLROLLED+SKIP [34] 0 3 3 3 ). So, I tried to get these done consecutively on every like 3.rd beat (on same ball), each hand doing different. Got three consecutives with stronghand-weakhand-stronghand. Gotta & wanna work on that to get it somewhat fluent.  
3b single under the arm - 10 min.   Three variations: caught & thrown normal, with backhand or as penguin. I can do it with penguins in 3-beat making the pattern look like sprung, that ball doing sort of 'bottoms'.  
3b single reachovers - 10 min.   Consecutive 3rd beat reachovers (and clawed) seem like they could be a mills mess variation.  
3b single wide + 423 - 10 min.   Single very wide throws take longer flight time which can be caught up with by e.g. doing a 423, or by e.g. racketing the ball back into the pattern with like no dwell-time.  
3b more ellrollers + takeaway - 5 min.   = in cascade, a ball caught and instantly rolled towards ell slowly, but, while rolling, taken away with the other hand to instantly be thrown from there (all the while going on cascading the other balls).  
3b single backhand claws - 5 min.   Forked behind middle finger or behind middle and ringfinger on every 4.th beat. With stronghand only. As outside throw clawing next ball after.  
3b single penguins; single bx; single half-contort. - 13 min.   (just to have them done)  
3b single bb(behind back) - 15 min.
5b endure, easy, fast, fastest - 45 + 33 + ~65(?) min.   One robotic run very very stable, snapped in for many periods. Pattern just a bit over head-high, thrown mainly from wrists, underarms just sort of 'following', elbows, i think, slightly away from body, i think also, with shoulders involved for tuning.   Longest run counted 363 throws.   [ dailyLongestRun5b: 363 ]

2b, 3b s'swaps with 4-s and 1-es - 20 min.   2b-411, okay.   2b-14140, not better 'n yesterday.   3b-441, 48 throws (thrown 1-es, not given over, but not smashed).   Think, I'll leave all these at that.   Some 3b-52413 with reachover-4 as crossing throw following the 5 before.   5b endure - 100 min.   Didn't get anything > 320 throws.   [ dailyLongestRun5b: 250 ]   5b single bx - 20 min.   Once or twice 2/run - didn't find into yesterday's good timing.
