**3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 43 min.** Special attention today for my "fastest"-pattern, but big & slow; other than assumed, it's not *rev--normal--normal*, but *rev--rev--normal--normal* ( took a while to find out, as the first rev is almost a slam .. puzzling ). Also tried *rev--rev--normal* which was pretty puzzling ( upto ~3 rounds only ).**5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.** 88, 128 cl wristy 6-high. 192 th normal 5-high (~head-high + 1 handwidth).**9b flashing - 28 min.** iv 7 gathers' launches.**5b 56752 - 16 min.** Two 8th sides. Two 9th sides. One 10th side(?), i think.

in between, after break, for re-warmup, a bit (2-3min?) more

**3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 22 min.** *Behind back* can't seem to get them in a fast count, only 5-count at most, let alone consecutives (impossible so far). "Fastest".**5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 3 min.** 160 throws wristy 6-high, also smooth, rather untensed. (i think, this is important for enduring 7b cascade, .. i will later think: "Keep going just like with these"). 239 throws comfortable 5-high.**9b flashing - 35 min.** Three times 7 gathers. Two times 8 g in reach. Also some good upto 3 rethrows again. Something really seemed possible today. #SoL #mentec - hard to explain, but i think, it works best to sort of visualize the pattern running on height *right before* launching ( instead trying rhythms and heights for each pair (stronghand throwing, weakhand following) of balls launched, and instead of working on tuning, calibrating and coordinating a lot on merely the launch itself ), or just imagine and visualize a good height, then *orientate* on that `result´ of the launch when launching, sort of *anticipating* all balls up and *intending* to focus on feeding the top. Maybe this goes with focussing more on the later throws sort of `fulfilling´ that intention. (if all that makes sense). #conditions - the meadow was just a tiny bit moist making the balls only slightly sticky (not too much) - which was bad for fast stuff with few balls before - but now it prevented unwanted double-multi-releses and was now also good for catching with much fewer slips and better grip. ( I was prepared to skip my 5b s'swap stint for those very good 9b conditions and good form that i also had, but rain came, so left it at that. )**5b 56752 - 32 min.** [

**5b casc varied - 3-5 min.** Short warmup on 9-?-b-high throws.**9b flashing - 65 min.** Four times 7 gathers. A few good rethrows, well in beat and height from good pattern, some bad hasted ones in bad pattern.**7b casc - 85 + 57 min.** 45, [*changed to other riverside here*], 43, 59 (°whew°, relieving) throws longest runs.

**3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 23 min.****5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.** 69 throws wristy 6-high. 221 th 5-high.**9b flashing - 27 min.** Two 7 gathers one of which almost 8 g. A few rethrows. #SoL - (not a new issue, but) I'm waisting a lot of effort on throwing the later throws unnecessarily way too high; that also explains, why sometimes speediest launches are still too slow to get all balls out before the first two drop, while another time speedy works great and there's spare milliseconds for rethrows. (It's trivial, but trying hard and not watching yourself or focussing on sth else, you don't always notice)**5b 56752 - 35 min.** 7th and 8th sides (one clean). One 9th side clean.

[ on upcoming rain, changed spot from shady to near home ]

Rain stopped the session early and I drove home, but the big dark cloud passed sideways and there wasn't to come any soakin' strong or long rain (yet unpredictable then). Would've had time to do indoors (which feels so `second best only´), but didn't make it - I'm not so unconditionally keen on indoor 5b rev casc or 3b+2c stuff.
