# 7 balls, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, #mentec, #endupatt, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 155 minutes

5b warmup, casc varied, shower - 15 min.   Clean flash of shower; and 6 and 7 throws' attempts of it to collapse. #technique (focus) - Firing up to the same not all too high spot.   Also some "fastest" here already again.
5b 52567 - 25 min.   Bad; was happy with only a 5.th side clean at last.
7b casc - 110 min.   Never got that wheel turnin'; hardly ever got a well-shaped top of pattern to go on from .. guess my main fault that kept me from finding my pattern and connecting to its top well, was, that I wanted too much and did too tensed most the time.
[ #technique, #SoL, #mentec(?), #endupatt ] - Maybe, for the pattern to snap-in, once it's up and finished launching, you have to do a lot of things - if not everything - right in just one instant .. do an extra switch into "keep-up"-mode, which is a hurdle to take to get it rollin'.
Got 43, 41, 43 cl, 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 45 ]
5b fastest - 5 min.

Total practice time: 155 minutes

# 7 balls, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, 5 balls, #theory, #ballproperties, 115 minutes

Now that its notably warmer outdoors, I can definitely say that my MMX1 have become much softer again after, during winter in the cold, they were feeling almost like the hard Babache's Bubble Balls that I used to juggle with. - #ballproperties
5b warmup, casc varied, shower - 5 min.   A few attempts on shower again; got a flash at last by throwing all up as fast as I could to a spot high up there, but not too high in order to not need much longer dwelltime and effort for little gain of even more height. [ #theory ? #``optimal perfect throw´´ ? ]         
7b casc - 100 min.   An hour not over 39 throws, many 35 th.
#SoL #technique - I tuned on my launch, which I regularly get problems with all of a sudden, and today found out, that I sometimes tend to not scoop the first throws, not throw from rather the middle. Focussing on that, I then got too narrow patterns in turn.
No idea, how I got out of that puzzle, but then finally found nimbleness, speediness, smoothness, found automized good launches again, found my pattern with focus well connected to its rolling top, and got acceptable runs (in matters of result & feel for pattern's top) with 43, 41, 51, 41 cl, 45 throws.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
In between got a   quadruplex backcross -+- triplex (front) from launch to clean collect.
5b "fastest" - 10 min.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #anatomy, 150 minutes

t-shirt weather, good session
5b casc varied - 15 min.   incl. a few bad attempts on 5b shower; and lately always been doing a bit "fastest", too.
5b 52567 - 20 min.   Last run was best run with 6 sides clean collected.
7b casc - 105 min.   52, 53, 43, 41, 43, 43, 63, 51, 41 cl, throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]
.. a slight ache had come up in mee back's muscles on stronghand side at height of chest below shoulderblade [*], so preferred to finish the session with some ..
5b fastest - 10 min.
[*] - by all the muscles getting their 'turn' to ache, I'm over the years learning what they're used for .. this region at the back is for higher forced throws from arm too far in front :o| #anatomy, this is particularly interesting for non arm or shoulder muscles also involved in throwing.

# 5 ball tricks, 5prop mix, 5 balls, #efficiency, #technique, 155 minutes

15' - 5b "easiest" \ endure - not over ~200 throws. (wasn't into forcing if a long run would not come in easy mode)
