3c basics - ~5 min 98, 271 doubles. 11, 12, 21 triples. 5, 5 quadruples.
3c-34530 - ~5 min Got it twice back to a rotten cascade.
1c, 2c, 3c bx - ~5 min Slowly getting used to where to aim with weakhand.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~30 min. Tried thumb-index-forks - so-so.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~10 min. Upto 9-high.
9b flashing - ~35 min. (MMX) Twice 6 gathers, then a lucky 8 g! Did unleashed speedy after first two controlledly launched came well. Have adapted new grips. Promising, lust for more.
5b-56752 - ~10 min. Not gotten over 2 sides yet.
7b casc - ~140 min. , 49 cl, 55,, 63,,,, 59 cl,, (break), 41,,, 47 cl,, 41,, 45,, 51,,, throws runs longer than 40 th. [Commas = timeline] [ dailyLongestRun7b: 63 ] Great runs today!
Total practice time: 240 minutes
3c basics - ~5 min 255 throws doubles. 19, 24 throws triples.
3c-34530 - ~5 min (single, double, triple, single) Got it once clean fro-to singles' cascade.
3c, 2c bx - ~5 min 3c was too hazardous with weakhd and liable to hurt myself, but got some with 2c (33BX0 and 3BX30 with either hands).
5b casc varied - ~25 min.
5b °56752° - ~15 min. Worked myself from collisions, bad shape, wrong throws at first, to halfway nice first side + somehow the second side. This one is giving me a hard time, but I got several periods of 4b-345 formerly, and I want more of that family (``sided crescendoes´´ I call them).
5b all up 180° - ~5 min. Got a rare one back to stable cascade (usually to collect) + second flash (to breakdown) per run.
7b casc - ~170 min. ,,, 43,, 43,,, 58, 41 -- 45,, 41 -- 43 cl,,,, 51 -- (short snackbreak),,,, 41,,, 59 (57 c),,, throws runs longer than 40 th. [Commas = timeline; " -- " = consecutive runs; "cl" = "c cl" = catches clean] 37-39 runs partly seem so long and in bad phases are a pity to not be worth noting, .. but well, I soon or late mostly get a yield >40. There is that hurdle at about 31-35 throws where drifts or loss of control show up to kill my pattern, that I then regularly have to get over. Noticed, I had a drift there into getting too wide, for not scooping well anymore, not throwing enough fom inside (which I still haven't automized). [ dailyLongestRun7b: 59 ]
In between, after break, did some 9b flashing - ~5 min. (MMX) I can even grip the then not floating one on top with the tip of my thumb against the diamond grip's ringfinger + pinky held ball. Got some 9 `real´ throws (before the first hit the ground lol), then even some launches with a prospect of maybe getting something, and even upto 6 gathers. Still though smaller balls would make a lot more sense. But, you know ..
A few fails at 8b wimpy here too, just for a try.
Total practice time: 235 minutes
3c, (1c), 2c basics, tricks - 15 min. 3c-34530: got my `side´ on stronghand. First tries on weakhand-side: feasible soon. 2c multiplex like 00 single spin, fine. 1c singles doubles triples quadruples (both hands) for 3c quadruples casc .. got most with 1c, failed most with 3c. 2c synch singles doubles triples tricky to synch well. 5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 15 min. 9b flashing - 95 min. Always trying to find the thin line between speedy + slips vs. well single released, but high with effort. Tried spit for slightly sticky grip, maybe slightly better, maybe no change. Three times 7 gathers; twice 8 g in reach; once well spaced, well aligned, just splattering down just a bit too fast for really 9 in reach. 7b casc - 60 min. Speedy, partly somewhat playful runs, but not easy, not without effort, and short only. One good 15 minutes phase. Max counted: 41 throws.
7b casc - 55 min. Good phase here also. [ dailyLongestRun7b: 41 ]
Total practice time: 240 minutes
2c, 1c, 3c, tricks - 25 min. Just one or two 2c multiplex throws in different ways .. knobs shouldn't overlap horizontally by bending hand more works best for me. 3c-34530 (single double triple single) took a lot of fails (catching 4 too early instead throwing 3 first; or not knowing what to do next with caught club; or - with last 3 - doing double instead single .. did some 3c-5223333 to get rid of that) .. lot of fails until I got one `side´ + back to cascade. 1c - got four or five consecutive thumbrolls at first try; no chance for any flourish over handback. 3 & 5 heavy balls ~ 50(?) min. #conditions : a rainbreak, one short thunder break, no constant juggling, more short showers, wet grass, changing place all the time. 7b casc - 55 min. Some (sinew? joint?) pulling ache in shoulder, so felt safer with some .. 5b RO - 10 min. and tottering and akupressing it .. after seemed to have vanished, went on with .. 7b casc - 50 min. Tried from wrists + forearm only, no shoulder (?!), as far as possible .. got a few remarkable very low (what I'm tall) flashes, max qualify, but did normal high then after all.
7b casc - 65 min. Arms had started burning a little too much for "easy swift". (both stints:) Several runs 31 to 37; one 41 throws. (didn't count a lot) [ dailyLongestRun7b: 41 ]
Total practice time: 255 minutes
3b, (2b) freestyle, misc - 30 min. #otu (other than usual): Partly 2b: tried inv. box .. no real chance .. intuitively doing 3 instead 4 (secure catch) .. also 3-s instead 1-s (avoid collision). Also wrong balls. 3c, (2c), basics, (tricks) - 15 min. Doubles: 103 catches; triples: 14, 14, 15 max catches. 2c-34030 (singles doubles) six `sides´ each. Easy. Gave 3c-234 (singles doubles) just a try .. also rather easy, got like two `sides´ each 1.st try, but still tend to do double- instead single-3 (and have to fetch it from above before spinning twice :o]) . ) when not wholly concentrating on the `beat-melody´. Spent no time on it, remembering for next. 5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 15 min. 7-high max 118 catches. 9b flashing - 40 min. Half-half good-bad. Max 7 gathers only once. Once 9 c seemed in reach. Laboured on that last weakhand-ball coming as multi (causing most of any fails): focussing on that one's grip mainly - before even starting the launch - gets some hold of that one evading early. 7b casc - 60 min.
7b casc - 90 min. Max 43 th. [ dailyLongestRun7b: 43 ] 7b splits - 5 min. Several times 8 catches. Max throws 10 or 12. Ugliness getting less bad - spread comes better. 3.rd (pinky-)ball of three-ball-starthand needs extra attention at launch, to get it into right grip, or into right spread with less good grip.
Total practice time: 255 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 ]
