# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 247 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 20 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min. 95 throws wristy 6-high to collision. 209 t 5-high to collision.
9b flashing - 65 min. Two times 8 gathers. Again, theoretically 9 c in reach: time plenty after spotting around 3(?) last balls, but had bodycaught already and inevitably leaving bodycatches only, for those incoming last balls (ended 6 gathers). No rethrows. (m.)
7b casc - 142 min. 47, 47, 47, 51, 53, 49, 45, 45, 43 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 53 ]
5b fastest - 10 min. Good runs, speedy, low, but no very long runs.

# 7 balls, #focus, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 208 minutes

( after two partly chilly, down to 15°C and below, rainy days, now near perfect again and more warm & dry & sunny days ahead )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 12 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Around 100 throws wristy 6-high.
9b flashing - 63 min.   One million times 7 gathers.   Two times 8 g.   11 throws into 7 gathers. 13 throws. (only rethrow attempts, i think)
  #SoL #technique - new little insight / tuning:   It struck me towards end of stint, that in the past I have been throwing the first two throws to abrupt, with abrupt movement up as if i were throwing from loose wrist, which doesn't make sense for the first ball from stronghand - a fifth ball on top of diamond gripped four others (and weakhand then following with its first launched fourth ball on the index where it would make sense to try wristy already, but so far, I let it ``follow´´). I am doing them a bit slowlier in any case, but somehow, I managed to even then do them in an abrupt way.   If I do those two throws softer and explicitly get their thrust from forearms almost only, I should get more control over my launches becoming well structured (upto now, I wasn't sure, what exactly makes me sometimes get it well, sometimes bad). Gotta try like that again and track this.
7b casc - 128 min.   44, 43 cl, 43 cl, 44, 53, 53, 45, 49 cl, 55, 66, 53 throws longest runs. Pretty great yield, but I wasn't satisfied, for example, I lost several good runs on ~35 throws' mental (or whatever physiological) barrier, and also did tensed a lot and didn't easily get or stay in snapped-in patterns; no question of ``settling´´ in good patterns, which is my next step & level. Nonetheless, happy with a good yield of course.   [ daily7b II: 66 ]
  Also here, found yet a new aspect, "issue" even: #SoL #focus #endupatt - I am often focussing on stronghands' balls up for orientation, while I should rather partage my attention equally on any / both hands' last balls up. It's surely a result of my alltime stronghand \ weakhand asymmetry that never bothered me, but the issue is one of focus mainly. [Note to self:] Also work on, work with, and track this!
5b fastest - 5 min.   (no long runs)

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 208 minutes

5b 56752 - 25 min.   Hardly over 6 sides, but one 9th side into 10th collapsing.
[ short rainbreak 5' ]
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 18 min.
[ break - tried to roughly dry the grass with a towel attached to a long branch 15' ]
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   161 c cl wristy 6-high.   119 throws into collision 5-high.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Many 7 gathers.   Two 8 g.   No rethrows.
7b casc - 53 min.   49, 43, 47, 51, 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
[ next rainbreak 15' ] meadow was soakin' wet now and wiping off every dropped ball wasn't really "practise" ..
7b casc - 5 min. trying to not drop at all gave 7-11 throws  a n d  drops. Very bad.
.. so I rather did where I can expect fewest drops:
5b endure - 30 min.   359 throws.
more 7b casc - 17 min.   (no long runs)

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, #ballproperties, 192 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Short run 7-high.   Longer run wristy 5-to-6-high.
9b flashing - 45 min.   About ten times 7 gathers. One 8 g. No rethrows iirc.   #ballproperties - Balls felt too big and bouncy, not so squishy, and had several ringfingerballslips at launch; presuming they had blown up from cold to warm, I left some air out and indeed a bit whizzed out, but it wasn't much better.   Okay stint, though, structured promising patterns, little spread (smaller radius - used to pick up drops upto one and half yard away - now often they drop right near me or just a step away).
7b casc - 127 min.   Meager yield: 44 cl, 61, [short break 8'], 43 throws longest runs; felt much better 'n that. Hadn't done speedy enough yesterday I now realized. "Nimble" wouldn't get an also comfortable, smooth pattern if not paired with speediness  ( of throwing movement, dwelltime, handspeed, that is, ((not of tact, beat cadence)) ).  Same with "swift" or anything, ratios an' all, done right - without a certain speediness it'll be tensed or doing `behind´ the pattern's speed.   After break had completely lost ratio, pattern, swiftness and it stayed like that. Better again tomorrow!  [ daily7b II: 61 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 213 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 1 min.   149 throws run 5-high.
9b flashing - 65 min.   Over 20 times 7 gathers. No 8 g (?!), and only two or three 8 g in reach. Maybe 9 c in reach, but spotted late and last balls came fast. Two or three launches with not so reasonable rethrows.
7b casc - 137 min.   Mediocre yield: 57, 47, 47, 43 throws longest runs, and corresponding performance: got it well only shortly, but mostly struggling to get it comfortably snapped-in.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, 280 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 55 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 8 min. 199 wristy on high 5-height (normal 5-high endurance pattern is about a handwidth above head - this was more than a foot above head).
9b flashing - 65 min. Ten times 7 gathers (once sort of 9 c in reach). One 8 g. A few rethrow launches (one 11 t 5 g).
5b 56752 - 27 min. Two 9th sides (one full caught, one into 10th side's throws to collapse). Two 8th sides' runs.
7b casc - 115 min. [ daily7b II: 43 ]
5b fastest - 10 min. Upto 30+ throws.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 316 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 83 min. Tried some consecutive penguins and then also consecutive claws, which was awkward for the penguins an boring for the claws; I do like the latter in a flowy 2-count (both hands), though. Extra-times again for bx 90° and bbl.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 15 min. 55 throws wristy 6-high. 310+ t 5-high.
9b flashing - 95 min. Ten times 7 gathers. Three(!) times 8 g (very rare); one of which was curious: one early throw went far ahead out of reach and the rest came in just perfect and easy to catch them all. And a few launches with rethrows (11 t 6 g ? i think).
7b casc - 60 + 63 min. (41), [break], 46, 53 throws longest runs. Didn't really get it today - was mostly behind the tact and didn't get that nimble aiming from unleashed wrist(s). [ daily7b II: 53 ]

# 3 heavy balls, 33 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 33 min. Among the usual getting the hands nimble with some freestyle which mainly consists of reachovers, penguins, claws, drops, levels (i think), wide, takeouts (i think), rev (of course), all mixed in about a 3-count, a casual bx, and often "fastest", did once around bx 90°, both ways, partly on about every third throw.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 203 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 20 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 8 min. 93 throws wristy 6-high. 190+ t 5-high.
9b flashing - 40 min. Four times 7 gathers. One ``8 g in reach´´ became 6 g. Seeking focus on, control of and shape-accuracy of the first throws launched [ as described in last entry ], soas to more easily or probably merge into a good full pattern.
7b casc - 135 min. 45, 43, 50, 43, 51 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 51 ]

# 7 balls, #form, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 225 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 40 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min. 109 throws wristy 6-high. 277 t 5-high.
9b flashing - 22 min. Three times 7 gathers. #SoL #technique - I have found an orientation for while launching: after the first two low throws, there appears the tunnel for the next ball(s) to either go on throwing through it, when it's wide enough, or else, in case it's `closed´, use the second front plane. This gives me a focus to focus on, while upto now, I did: "get the first four lower balls out of the way somewhat wider to the sides, soas to hammer up the five later ones on good height full automized" ( without any clear focus on a pattern or structure while(!) launching ). So, I can now do: "one--two--tunnel--tunnel--tunnel--a.s.o.". [ I found this late that stint, so stopped soon after that new insight. ]
5b 56752 - 17 min. Long time only a couple each, 6th and 7th sides; then a run into 12th side's throws to collapse. Also, then an 8 sides' run clean.
7b casc - 136 min. 43, 43, 59, 43, 49, 44, 55, 43 throws longest runs. #form - One hard airless-flabby-weak-worn phase in between, that I got over by not using any effort at all (was powered out anyway), doing very low and as nimble as could very short runs without even taking the effort to correct any flaws ( I was near laying two balls away and doing simple cascade or sth with 5b instead ). A while like that gave somewhat better form again to do halfway normal again. - Moments like that take me back down to realize how little I can actually do ``anytime´´, ``in my sleep´´ / when ``running on half-light´´.
