# 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, #mentec, 9b flashing attempts, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 239 minutes

9b flashing - 88 min.   Twentysix(!) times 7 gathers. Several 8 g in reach. Two 8 g gotten. Very few rethrow attempts, one good one: 13 throws. Sometimes I do: "First two or four throws rather too wide than narrow!" (cos too narrow as usually happens is sort of `granted´ anyway). Whole stint felt great again.
5b 56752 - 19 min.   Rather bad, into 9th side to collapse, an 8th side clean, a 7th, all fought for, tensed.
7b casc - 128 min.   43, 49, 45, 43 throws longest runs. A few nicely rolling runs. But mostly not doing smooth, nimble enough - [ #mentec ] guess, the thing is, when doing with unleashed wrists, you give away control at first and I have to awarely actively decide to now do wristy as should and go through re-seizing control (get the aiming well) doing that way; unwristy is simply the intuitive way that happens when not thinking about it or not noticing or focussing on sth else (e.g. top of pattern).  [ daily7b II: 49 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 195 minutes

( humane temperatures those last days, not so breeding warm anymore; looks like, after spring, the second part of the best time of the year for doing outdoors, fall, is ahead )
9b flashing - ~50 min.   Ten times 7 gathers, one of which I lost a caught ball when catching next (8 g almost).   No 8 g, but gorgeous rethrows: 10 t 6 g. 12 t. 14(? don't think so)-15(?)-16(?) throws.
5b 56752 - ~10 min.   Very bad, not even 6 sides. Didn't do "until", but prefered to move on to ..
7b casc - ~135 min.   (41 cl, 41,) 47, 43, 51 throws longest runs. Overall okay stint; started off bad, like from cold; then had a hurdle at about 35 throws; then got longer runs, but tensed; but also had a couple of good runs with good focus on controlling the pattern by its top well (but rather somewhat too tensed and not all smooth & swift). Also did very high and very low & fast just one or two attempts each again, when I didn't seem to get anywhere (seems to work, i think it felt better after that, but can't tell for sure). [ daily7b II: 51 ] One run went into reverse cascade that I could keep going for about one-two periods.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 243 minutes

9b flashing - 80 min. Ten times 7 gathers (three of which could possibly have become 8 g). One 8 g. A few rethrows - went for some a few minutes (else wouldn't have gotten any).
5b 56752 - 20 min. Upto once 8 sides to collapse.
7b casc - 73 + 70 min. 50 cl, [break], 49 throws longest runs. Tried "easiest" a lot; forcing for result after that didn't really make it happen. [daily7b II: 50 ]

# 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, 5 ball tricks, 264 minutes

9b flashing - 98 min. Sixteen(!) times 7 gathers, only one or two of which had 8 g in reach. Several launches with upto three or four halfway reasonable rethrows.
5b 56752 - 53 min. Two times 10 sides. One 9th side. One 8th side for sure, maybe more when not counting. The high throws, 6-es and 7-s, well on height give a good hold-pause to switch focus on and to anticipate the next side's galoped crescendo (with changed hands, also).
7b casc - 41 + 72 min. 43, 43, 49, 43, [break], ( fresh weather, fresh form now. went under the bridge to have the low sun on my pattern instead of catching and throwing 7 2-dimensional shadows at before's shady spot), 43, 49, 49, 55 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 55 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 8 balls, 230 minutes

5b 56752 - 68 min. Two times a 12th side, one of which clean. Rest upto one or two 9th, an 8th side or a few.
8b wimpy - 25 min. Upto 6 synch throws (to collapse), which felt good, but hardly anything accurate enough to even get 8 catches clean (only 7 catches). Tried different angles, different heights, different (higher\\lower) crossing points; sometimes - given a certain accuracy, some orientation - simply battering them all up ``through the middle´´ works best - else, `uncalibrated´, doing that way will get outbreakers and a great spread.
7b casc - 137 min. One only 43 throws' run. [ daily7b II: 43 ]

# 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´´.
