3c basics doubles - ~3 min (massive wooden 38cm clubs) 64 and 77 throws runs.
2c basics sync tuple-spins - ~12 min Sort of pyramid - more spins only when i got them synched well, else back one spin less: singles, doubles, triples (not all easy to synch these), quadruples (got ugly ones twice or thrice).
3c basics triples - ~10 min Max 15 c cl.
3c, 2c tricks bx - ~10 min 2c in 3-beat (3BX30) okay; 3c 3-beat: weakhd threw too far out.
3c tricks 34530 - ~5 min (single, double, triple) So-so, got it a few times ugly from casc to collect with halves (caught on club's body).
3 heavy balls, 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~30 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~15 min. 5-7-9-b(?)-high.
5b casc varied - ~10 min. (Bubbles) Pulse wide\\narrow; walk backwards\\ahead; fastest.
7b casc - ~135 min. , 51,, 39,, 49,, 45,,,(had completely lost my pattern, connection, here for a longer while - sometimes it's simply there, launch and there we go - sometimes I have to work back into, spotting and eliminating all flaws or errors one by one), 40,, 41,,, (plus two uncounted long runs) throws runs longer than 38 th. [Commas = timeline] [ dailyLongestRun7b: 51 ]
Small stuff tried out [#otu (other than usual)]: 3c high triplex (caught one club on n.-th attempt). Balls quadruplex 5b launch [2T345]522 into collect. Tried a flourish continued `inside´, between arm and loin, while i can't even do the normal one well yet, but somehow it worked, but wouldn't know how to do it again. Got an inverse 1b armcurl ( rolled from normal to backhand, on the `wrong´ side around the arm ((not over radius-bone, but ulna)) ).
Total practice time: 230 minutes
3c, (1c), 2c basics, tricks - 20 min. 2c - synch doubles triples quadruples - nice synchronicity & caught the quads. 1c - stronghand: thumbrolls half-half done resp. failed; tried flourishes over handback .. nothing; flatfronts and bottle-grip tryaround. 3c - quadruples 3 catches + a triple. Triples max 10 catches (only). 9b flashing - 55 min. Twice 7 gathers, once almost 8 g. Used a bit watered gelatine, which worked well (against dry-slippy balls). 7b casc - 90 min. Max counted 41 throws. Many good runs either longer, either swift & easy, or speedy-flappy. But also phases with early fails.
7b casc - 105 min. (same) [ dailyLongestRun7b: 41 ]
Total practice time: 270 minutes
3c, (1c), 2c basics - 10 min. 3c-quadruples: 2 catches. Synch columns 2c singles, doubles, triples, and got the quadruples caught. 3c-triples: 18 throws. 3b freestyle, misc - 15 min. 5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 15 min. 9b flashing - 55 min. Only twice 7 gathers, but once 9 c in reach + once nearly in reach. Also got a good low launch. (some gelatine still sticks to the balls, soas when moistened, they become perfectly slightly sticky again and don't slip). 7b casc - 70 min. Once 41 throws counted. Had long lost my speedy launches and used too much effort (exhausting & weary). [ dailyLongestRun7b: 41 ]
5b misc - 15 min. (Bubbles) A bit each: as high as possible (~f-h-high?); single bx; "fastest". 7b casc - 60 min. All day bad average. Short better, swifter & easier phase with cooling sundown.
Total practice time: 240 minutes
3c, (1c), 2c basics - 20 min. (massive wooden clubs) Doubles: twice 56 throws; triples only 9 throws, even after doing 2c singles, doubles, both synch/asynch and high/low, synch partly crosshands, and triples synch/asynch; and even still one more level down - with one club only - to get the triples well, but it wasn't triples'-day today. Also did a few 1hd 1c quadruples in a row. 2c, 3c tricks - 20 min. Took a while to find back into "over--wait--over-UP--WAIT-over--hmnh--overrrUP--[a.s.o.]" of 2c-34030 (singles doubles). Tried the 4-s as columns, but throwing the 3-s more to outside was a better solution to have the 4-s land nice (angle to body). When I had like four to five "sides" each, left-right,
(=~16, 18 throws) (guess 9 "sides" = 27 throws) twice, I did my second attempt ever at 3c-34530 (singles doubles triples) .. the launch was astonishingly well shaped, ('cos somewhat impulsive, not wholly knowing what I was doing, also risky and prepared to dart away from least collision-bound I'd notice). I somehow managed to do a 4 catch launch later, but from only bad tries (first caught three hand partly blocked / paralyzed doing 2 instead 3, so caught next 4 with wrong other hand reaching over), so that siteswap is one level too big for time beeing and more 2c-34030 needed. 3b freestyle, misc - 35 min. (200 gr, hard) 5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min. Rarely done this before and rejected it, but never yet considered it preliminary to 7b. Cascade went well, some portion of effort needed. Also a few risky 7- to 9- high runs. Forearms now slightly burning. --> .. 5b casc varied - 30 min. .. after that felt like featherballs (Bubbles, 80 gr). Did 9-high ~50 throws; normal-high an acceptable run; 7-high 215 throws. A bit each "fastest" (sth. over 31 throws, > 4 sets of 8, which is very very good, PR-like); high\\low-pulsing and high&narrow\\wide&low-pulsing; "loose flapping wrists". 7b casc - 75 min. Still the "way-easier-than-5-heavy-balls"-effect .. will do that daily now. Very good & long phase with many good launches, few to no early fails, consecutive longer runs; counted 47, 45 throws, a lot over 31 th, and whatever pattern-shape (high, low, wide, narrow, half-shower-like, 3-dimension, .. ) was e a s y and many corrective throws came well. Seemed, a breakthrough could happen any moment.
Very good session, very promising.
2c tricks - 5 min. 2c-34030. Want it "water-fluent" (not "rock-solid"). 3b freestyle, misc - 15 min. 5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min. 7b casc - 70 min. Another run 45 th. Lots 'a good launches resulting in good jugglable patterns again. [ dailyLongestRun7b: 47 ]
