# #conditions, 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 167 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 27 min.

9b flashing - 35 min.   Three times 7 gathers.
7b casc - 80 min.   [ daily7b II: 35 ]
#conditions - unnervingly irritating and freakin' disturbing wind plus windchill where I expected perfect spring weather - usually I take this as a challenge to do with modifier "with notable wind", but not today - it's not mainly any balls slightly aberring, but when looking high with nothing but the sky as background, with wind pushing now more, then less a.s.o., you slightly lose stable orientation and stable stance on an anyway also uneven meadow (comparable to standing still on a wobbly platform or mattress) - very very bad session - rather a futile fight to the marrow today

# 7 balls, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 225 minutes

5b casc varied - 10 min.   when including "fastest" here, then not as going for result, but as overall speediness \ nimbleness preparation for all that is to come.
5b 56752 - 45 min.   Two 6th ounds clean. A 7th round to collapse. An 8th round clean.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Four times 7 gathers. Once each, 11, 12, 13 throws.
7b casc - 120 min.   40-50-throws-day today: 47, 43, 49, 43, 47, 43, 43, 49, 49, 46, 44, 43 throws longest runs.   #endupatt - Got it "throwing under last ball" well a lot, but hardly ever with focus on and welltimed into pattern's top's rolling ``dice eyes´´ ever. Not really snapped-in as should.   [ daily7b II: 49 ]

# 5 ball tricks, #PR, 3 ball tricks, 80 minutes

75' - 5b rev casc - 103, 77, 75, 131 cl new #PR [*], 79, 65, 93, 67 throws longest runs.
        [*] - some stumblin' amidst, can't remember what exactly, collision saved(?), bodycatch back to pattern(?), two-hands-clutched-catch back to pattern(?), something, .. so, ugly, maybe invalid. Was a good run, though and also felt like my best ever on this and mostly stable, fluent, feelgood, yet slaving a bit to "go on exactly like this" or it'll crash, some control, but not utter. (+ way to go still)

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #conditions, #jugglingSpots, 165 minutes

( #conditions, #jugglingSpots - started raining just when i started, unexpectedly with wind & rain coming under the bridge, so I stood in windshade facing the pillar doing 5b .. later without or less rain, at my normal spot there, the cobbles were muddy and had to clean dropped balls a lot :-| another lesson on for when in doubt to choose a spot with granted conditions )
5b casc varied - 10 min.
5b 56752 - 60 min.   Upto 6 rounds clean.
7b casc - 90 min.   51, 43, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, #form, 240 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 50 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
5b 56752 - 17 min.   A 7th and an 8th side (to drop).
9b flashing - 40 min.   Six times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach.   14 throws to collapse.   Started with trying to get a controlled, (well-)structured pattern, with motto "not all that high"; later went over to doing "empty the hands" (no matter "nine" or what), rather unleashed.
7b casc - 115 min.   Meager yield 55, 53, 43 throws longest runs.   Partly good phases, felt good, right, but too short or few for two hours' practise.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]
#form - burning shoulders a lot these days, haven't fully figured out whatfrom yet, guess it's from doing too far afront pattern (?) and or too tensed, forcing for result (?).
5b fastest - 13 min.

# 5 ball tricks, 80 minutes

80' - 5b rev casc - 63, 95, 81, 81 cl, [*] 73, 65 throws longest runs.
      [*] - looks like a good phase above average here, but those runs were mostly with bail-out-fights amidst, so not entirely rollin', not wholly the wheel kept on turnin'.   Generally those rows of numbers aren't meant for statistics or to be plotted to a chart or something - they sort of speak to me and tell what was possible that day and what not. Single peak runs for instance don't mean too much then, Only what all I got that day and that on several days will - when reading again much later - reflect the level I was doing at, but I'll have to remember or word more, how it felt, how much control I felt over a pattern, and-or how comfortable I was with it, °right°.   Also, I'm not as nerdy as to have any priority on counting as it might look, but I get some uncounted runs too, when the pattern really challenges me and-or when I use another #n-count emphasis e.g. when overall speeding up some, or else when I slide into a dull phase and simply don't remember how many sets of eight throws I'm at.

7b casc - 120 min.   45, 57, 43, 45, 46, 47, 53, 63, 63, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]
7b fastest - 10 min.   #new - casually done this before, especially when exhausted from forcing too much - now made it a stint on its own. It's a good speed \ fingers' nimbleness exercise in any case.   Clean flashes head high (among at least just as many fails). ~11 throws slightly above head.
5b fastest - 5 min.   One or two ~35-40 throws runs.

# 5 ball tricks, 3 ball tricks, #experimental, 90 minutes

80' - 5b rev casc - 85, 76, 66, 73, 88, 71 cl, 69, 75, 72 cl throws longest runs.

10' - 3b inv box - #experimental - did different high 4-s which gives interesting different dwelltimes for the lids' catches (those feel almost like 2-s then).

9b flashing - 35 min.   Three times 7 gathers.
5b 52567 - 25 min.   #SoL - Strong emphasis for the 6-es is still crucial.   Got upto a 6 sides clean run.

70' - 5b rev casc - 67 cl, 117 ~3rd last drop new #PR, 72+, 65 throws longest runs.

10' - 3b inv box - #exp - with a fourth ball parked in stronghand all the time, thinking there might be a spare moment to figure out what to do with it (but didn't, that ``plan´´ only merged into an active 2 with the regular column ball, to instant collapse).

# 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, #mentec, 5 heavy balls, 230 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 45 min.   including single behind back looking, in a 5-count or slower.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.
5b 56752 - 25 min.   #SoL, #mentec - lately thinking the pattern as 56752, from pause to pause, as a crescendo plus getting rid of a last 5 to the other side, that is (not in ``sides´´ with the pause amidst anymore, or also not as two high throws over two low throws); currently seems more `natural´ like that.   Got 9 sides [oops .. can't say that anymore, so:] rounds to collapse. Best clean was only 5 rounds.
9b flashing - 35 min.   Six times 7 gathers, one o which 8 g in reach. Max throws to collapse were 11 once, =2 rethrows.
