# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 292 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 35 min.   [among usual ..] A few bx per run, down from 4-count to 3-count [it's stone-hard balls .. no fail onto head allowed].
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 12 min.
9b flashing - 55 min.   Eight times 7 gathers. One 8 g.   12 throws into 7 g !   #SoL - I need to un-automize 3.rd & 4.th launched throws; do slower, controlled 1.st & 2.nd, then controlled 3.rd & 4.th (also not so very fast, not at unleashed speed), only then fire the restly five balls up fully automized - all in order to get controlled patterns (not just lucky nice ones).
5b 56752 - 43 min.   7.th, 8.th sides, full or clean collected, a 9.th and three(!) 10.th sides to drop(s).
7b casc - 135 min.   51, 43, 57, 47, 47, 48 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]
5b casc - 5 min.   just cascade - wanted to do sth not so challenging that I can - , tried to endure, but hardly got over 100 c (just once).
5b fastest - 7 min.   felt great, insane speed, but no long runs (~30+, maybe 40).

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 8 balls, 7 balls splits, 207 minutes

5b casc varied - 7 min.   high.   wristy 9-high (won't work - too much forearm involved).   fastest.
9b flashing - 35 min.   Five times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach. An 8 g in reach became 6 g.   (no pattern up allowed for rethrows).
5b 56752 - 13 min.   Two 6th sides clean.
7b casc - 142 min.   43, 48 cl, 53, 43, 45, 51, 55 throws longest runs.   Mostly tensed, forced, fought for, today. Little swift, well in rhythm; maybe a short good phase, but not really ``on level´´.   Fresh weather, good physical form.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]
8b wimpy - 5 min.   8 c cl. (yess! .. at last, .. been a while failing only)
7b splits - 5 min.   Best attempt was 9 duplex thrown 17 catches, one last drop.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 8 balls, 245 minutes

5b casc varied, warmup - 15 min.   High.   Spontaneus attempts on 95551, fails only - got 9--5--5--5--[hesitate or wrong].   A bit fastest.
5b 56752 - 65 min.   8 sides clean. More 8th sides to collapse. A 9th side to collapse. An 11th side (=near PR) to collapse.
As a tiny compensation for not doing any 9b today, did some ..
8b wimpy - 5 min.   Upto 6 synch pairs thrown once. Nothing clean.   Need to aim better.
7b casc - 160 min.   67 (high, wide), 43, 51, 49, 47, 49, 45, 53 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 67 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 215 minutes

5b casc varied - 5 min.
9b flashing - 30 min.   Five times 7 gathers, two of which 8 g in reach.   Also precious rethrows again of the 100% reasonable kind, not only "up, no matter what". Again felt like something goes there.
5b 56752 - 30 min.   Alltogether few 5th (?! only!), 6th, 7th sides and one 8th side, all mostly to drop(s). (In fact really a lot of 4 sides clean only, let alone early fails). Only towards end of stint, dared to do really hearty 6-es as should and also forcing them some, and adapting the pattern to those, instead vice versa, fitting the (then half-hearted) 6-es into the pattern.
7b casc - 150 min.   43, 51, 43, 43, 43, uncounted ~45-50(?), 53, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, #otu, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, 255 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~30 min.   #otu - Got a few front-to-backhand el-curl-flickups, doing as many 4-s as needed (two? or three?) with the other hand, back to cascade with a tennis throw (over the rest-pattern for nothing to collide) flicked from handback; but not more than one per run.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
[changed to under bridge as grass is too high to easily find all balls in]
9b flashing - 22 min.   Tried to get into rethrows soon after getting my first 7 gathers. Best run was 6 rethrows into 6 gathers, which even with no control, just hammering everything up again, felt great, like a glimpse into running it; and there being nothing dropbound during like two-three-four throws with all balls in the air. Tried to confirm, but it hadn't been anything, I could seize. And a few more runs with 2-5 rethrows.
5b 56752 - 48 min.   Best run was 8 sides clean.
Thunder & lighting were ahead and the wind grew stronger, allowing for only a small pattern windshielded by my body:
5b fastest - ~15 min.   Got a 45 throws run.
When the rain and tempest came, the stronger wind was soon gone again, so I could proceed with my `king's discipline´ ..
7b casc - 135 min. ( partly with colder hands and balls that feel harder then, less squishy, then with vinyl-gloves for a while)   Got 49, 53, 47 throws longest runs. Nextbest a good lot 35-40 throws. (In spite little yield ..) Partly felt great, though, smooth, somewhat well controlled.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 285 minutes

(broomed the spot)
5b casc varied - 20 min.
9b flashing - 60 min.   Six times 7 gathers, two of which 8 g in reach. Another 8 g in reach became 6 g.   After a few days without, got patterns allowed for upto 5 rethrows again.
5b 56752 - 65 min.   6th, 7th and 8th sides. One 7 sides was best clean run.
7b casc - 140 min.   47, 46, 53, 43, 45, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, 7 balls splits, 320 minutes

5b casc varied - 15 min.
9b flashing - 35 min.   Five times 7 gathers. Once 9 in reach, but only 6 g (fumbled on 4th last catch too many milliseconds, so the nice ones after dropped).   #SoL - really need to do ``relaxed´´ (as would go), meaning: not put any too strong emphasis on any pair or sequence of launched throws; but do ``hearty´´ height on every launched throw (or pairs) just a bit of ``good´´ thrust, and that well evenly distributed.  ( No need to try to do (insanely) very much higher than 7b, as it's only two balls more, and not double height or sth required (7x7=49, 9x9=81 in theory, not accounting for ((only two more)) dwelltimes) )
5b all up 180° - 15 min.   Positively said: got it two times into at least five rethrows; bad: nothing clean, all into drops, not bak to stable acscade, nothing to collect.
5b tricks, s'swaps - 43 min. Doing or attempting single sequences from and back to and with cascade in between ..
8552 - 10' - upto 3 times the sequence plus an attempt on fourth.
75751 - 8' - Hard again .. Uhm, "got a few ``valid attempts´´ in the end, all throws done, but like nothing caught or so.
7772615 - 12' - A few times once the sequence plus attempt on second into fail.
88522 - 13' - Got it twice to full collect, but awkwardly.
5b 56752 - 42 min.   Bad. 6 sides clean, 7th sides to collapse.
7b splits - 35 min.   14 c cl. Once 8, twice 9 duplex thrown to collapse.
7b casc - 120 min.   Queer yield: 69 throws. Nextbest only 39 (today's ``strange attractor´´) and below.   [ daily7b II: 69 ]
5b fastest - 15 min.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 7 balls splits, 251 minutes

5b casc varied - 5 min.
5b fastest - 10 min. (not planned, clung to it during warmup as I hadn't done any, omitted these lately in favor of 7b splits)
5b all up 180° - 8 min.   Only close a few times.
5b tricks, s'swaps - 18 min.   All single rounds from and back to cascade, maybe a second go, or to collect ..
8552 - didn't get this, only ``almosts´´. But
75751 - didn't get this.
7772615 - got this clean btc plus a second round same run thrown into fail.
  Had another go at 8552 and got one back to a round or two of cascade that crashed.
  A few futile attempts, a minute each or so, on 7733 and 95551 - one couldn't tell, I was attempting to "juggle", .. just throw balls around me in all directions like mad, you know. I shouldn't do these .. 7b-9955 seems more in reach than 5b-7733, as those 3-s are so low outside viewing range up, and 5-s aren't. ( Example for a trick that's easier with more balls ?! )
5b 56752 - 50 min.   Upto a 9th and an 8th, and several 7th sides, all to collapse. Best clean was 6 sides once or twice.
7b casc - 142 min.   49, 43, 47, 43 cl, 43, 57, 43, 73! (~ top ten runs ever, rather high, so not at all ``relaxed´´, or swift, or easy as five, or smooth, or anything, yet halfway snapped-in, so not all to effortish or tensed), 45, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 73 ]
More 5b 56752 - 8 min.   wanted to see, if doing this here, after two hours of 7b, would be any easier, but I had been doing it after 9b flashing before anyway - can't tell (did feel like 6-es needing less effort, but the thing is rather rhythm and timing), got like another 6 s cl and stopped for ..
7b splits - 10 min.   Two times 14 c cl. Once 9 duplex thrown.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 7 balls splits, #otu, 218 minutes

5b casc varied - 12 min.   high. wristy high. fastest. #otu - tried hopping (with both feet) with every throw of the cascade.
5b 56752 - 53 min.   Two 9th sides, one clean, one full collected ugly wrong finish. A good bunch of 7th and 8th sides with mostly unclean finish.
7b splits - 13 min.   Upto 9 duplex thrown into drop(s), maybe an uncounted longer run.
7b casc - 140 min.   69, 50, 43, 53, 43 throws longest runs plus two that I forgot to note 43?, 53?, plus two uncounted longer runs here too.   #otu - Never got used to that gap when sometimes continuing with 6b after drop, when rhythm and feel were good; now trying to maybe find into 77772 as an option in such cases.   [ daily7b II: 69 ]
