( 36°C, muggy, weary, flabby. Changed spot twice on thunderstorm ahead (that was only one short normal rain). Several breaks.)
3c basics - 5 min 138, 90 doubles. ~10, 20, 10, 10 triples.
3c tricks - 7 min .. took the bad spins into this stint. 441 - upto three rounds to drops. 34530 - Two sides to full collect with halves.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 13 min.
[ changed spot on sky clearing up ]
more 3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 20 min.
[ dead man floating in the river a bit, then changed spot again ]
5b casc varied - 10 min.
[ building some shelter, then rainbreak ]
7b casc - 45 min. Not over 41 throws.
[ break, snack + watered clothes ]
7b casc - 5 min. .. too muggy, worn .. went down to ..
5b div - 20 min. Endure. Reverse cascade.
7b casc - 37 min. One 63 throws run in a very short good phase. Rest under 40 th again. [ daily7b II: 63 ]
Again, felt too muggy & worn for 7b, so did 5b "fastest" and thought, I might just aswell try that with 7b (needing little effort only) ..
7b fastest - 10 min. .. but it was too droppy, so spent the rest with:
5b fastest - 20 min. Got a few longer runs around 50 and 60 throws.
Total practice time: 190 minutes
( >30°, muggy, partly airless, little to no wind )
3c basics - 5 min 320 c cl doubles. 53 throws triples (pretty good, maybe longest ever), with two or three halves among.
3c tricks - 8 min 441, 531, 34530, all so-so.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 33 min. 441 and even 2b-411 - like with clubs after two rounds - were puzzling. Got 5-6 rounds when focussing on the 1-s in 441.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min. 48 throws wristy 6-high.
9b flashing - 22 min. ( too warm for, but 9b's just soo 'greedy', so took a chance on 'em ) An early 8 gathers and five 7 g. Hardly any rethrows (once or twice two or three).
5b 52567 - 40 min. Some 8th sides, some of which clean. One 10th side.
7b casc - 98 min. One long 61 throws run. Rest below 40. [ daily7b II: 61 ]

3c basics - 5 min 212 c cl on doubles. 22, 36 throws to drop on triples.
3c tricks - 15 min
441 - three rounds to drop on the third 1.
531 - bad, first time ever tried #otu . High 5, then galopping 31 could be an approach.
34530 - Three times the sequence with cascade in between to a clean collect. This pattern is more and more fun the better I get it .. having two clubs in the air (the 4 and the 5) that will land right and handles to the point, and throwing out another one (the 3) feels great.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 28 min. [ yesterday: ] You can catch a ball between handback and the inside upper part of the other forearm (near the el); then roll it up like that from there using the forearm as a ramp. #inventions
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min. 120 throws 6-high. 215 th on rather lower 5-height.
9b flashing - 40 min. Only one 7 gathers launch. A few more or less reasonable upto 3 rethrows. Stopped when I got multiple releases when overspeeding and wanting too much (instead trying well-tempered), so to say.
5b 52567 - 57 min. A 10th, a 9th side to drop(s). Another long run 11(?) or 13(?) sides to collapse. Rest rather upto 7 sides.
7b casc - ~95 min. Not over 39 c cl today. [ daily7b II: 39 ]
In between took a plunge in the river.
5b fastest - 13 min. Upto 30+.
Total practice time: 263 minutes

3c basics, tricks - 12 min 80 doubles. Triples messy - it was windy. 441 - got 441441441 to collapse, but three rounds is rare 'cos I usually confuse "left hand", "right hand", "which club next" and "4" and "1" (and "not 2" and "not 3") after the second round. 34530 - three times the sequence to awkward ugly but full collect, which is the or among best I ever got with this. Also 2 seq. per run two times to collapse and once to full collect.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 33 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 7 min. 127 c cl 6-high.
9b flashing - 18 min. Again an early 8 gathers launch. Then nothing more. ( It was a bit strenuous, and it didn't seem, I'd get anything easily anymore, though you never know, but I'd rather went on with, and spend the time on next up on schedule ..
5b 52567 - 20 min. Not over 6 sides, not even clean.
Very flabby form here, and felt airless in spite of a good breeze - downright needed a break amidst this stint.
more 5b 52567 - 40 min. After drinking, lying down and stretching my back, watering T-shirt and muscles, with clearly better form worked myself into several 8th sides.
7b casc - 147 min. 43 cl, 65, 47, 43, 47, 45 cl throws longest runs. [another short break in between] [ daily7b II: 65 ]
Total practice time: 277 minutes

3c basics - 5 min 305 doubles, first attempt. 15, 25 triples, first and second attempt. 6 c cl quadruples on 2.nd attempt.
3c tricks - 15 min 423 - puzzled at first, then got a few rounds.
441(4) - got this: 441441423423, into ..423 simply happened getting rid of that hand's club under a low 4.
34530 (single double triple single) - got two times the sequence within a run with clean cascade in between to an ugly but full collect. I'm less ``afraid´´ of the 5-s landing who knows where causing collisions and chaos, but now know where they belong and that they won't hit me.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 55 min. among usual freestyling a mixture of single reachovers, penguins, claws, fastest (rev--normal--normal--a.so.), drops(?), levels(?), horizontal slams, racketing, tried
all up + 90° [ #otu ] but soon cut that leaving it for normal (less harder, less heavy, less risky) balls.
Did "slowly-roll-towards-elcrook-and-take-and-throw-ball-from-there" all the while going on cascading, in a five-beat, i think, stronghandside only (weakhand taking and throwing); I think I kept s'swap 3, not 423 or sth.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min. Wristy 6-high, several periods (~50-100 throws? Didn't count).
9b flashing - 50 min. Doubtful at very first attempts, soon found into a few acceptable launches, then two early 8 gathers. Accumulated ten times 7 gathers. Got a few unreasonable rethrows, but tried at least.
5b 52567 - 65 min. Two 9th sides. One 12th side.
7b casc - 145 min. 55, 49, 48, 43, 57 cl, 47, 57 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 57 ]
Total practice time: 340 minutes
#conditions - moskitoes of the kind that keep bouncing onto your face and don't mind a notable breeze made it hard to focus even only five minutes in one go today.
3c basics, tricks - 25 min 4-5 attempts below 100 for doubles. 21, 30 triples. Two or three bad attempts on quadruple spins.
Trying single rounds from and back to cascade:
441, 441423 - got single rounds, better with stronghand. Also a 441441 to collect.
34530 - same, .. got it once on both sides, but weakhand with halves. No two rounds per run today.
first time trying 552 from cascade in singles into 5-s as triples - got two or three ``valid attempts´´ into like four throws to drop(s).
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 38 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
9b flashing - 27 min. Three or four times 7 gathers. One 8 gathers with one ball caught pressed against the neck and one more in the other elcrook. No rethrows.
5b 56752 - 20 min. 8th side full caught (not very "clean" last round). 6th and 7th sides to drop(s). Best clean was 6 sides, i think. Did bend knees, instead standing straight, for a (needed) change, which seemed to work a bit.
7b casc - 120 min. ( lost a lot of time fighting moskitos with a) incense, b) alcoholic spray, c) a brailer, d) spray-spitting at those right in front my face, e) bluntly clapping them, f) not caring .. thinking "Ommm..." - nothing really worked - was near giving in?!! ) A pretty smooth 67, and a rather tensed 53 throws longest runs. Rest 39 and below. [ daily7b II: 67 ]
Total practice time: 235 minutes
3c basics - 12 min, tricks - 20 min 560 (660?) doubles, longest run ever, i think, first attempt, just didn't want to stop. 20, 25, 20, 32 triples, several halves. About twice the sequence per run (with casc in between) for 44142 and 441. Couldn't get any continuous 441. 34530 Twice got into once the sequence plus an attempt on second into fail. Got once the sequence full caught once, but one club tipcaught.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 45 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min. 135 throws 6-high. 279 th 5-high.
5b 56752 - 50 min. 7th, an 8th, and a 9th sides to drop(s). Best clean was 6 s.
7b casc - 128 min. 45, 45 was all. (weather was okay, form with good and bad phases as usual, will was there, did water muscles and joints and freshened up, did different ways, .. maybe too unfresh, weary a lot, .. queer .. guess, i should have taken a short break) [ daily7b II: 45 ]

Total practice time: 300 minutes
3c basics, tricks - 25 min Windy at first. 120, 114 doubles. Didn't do triples. 234. What I had been doing "333..4414..333 (invalid) with cascade in between" was of course 333..441423..333. Got some again today. And also a 333..4414414 to collect - so, continouus in sight. 34530 was okay too .. got two rounds per run (with cascade in between) to collect.
