# 7 balls, #technique, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 170 minutes

5b casc varied - 10 min.   warmup. high. 135 throws wristy 7-high. fastest.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Four times 8 gathers.   Maybe one or two launches somewhat near 9 c.   Two times 11 throws.
7b casc - 110 min.   49, 57, 59, 43, 51, 45, 47, 47, 51 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 59 ]
#technique #endupatt "easiest pattern" - For 5b enduring, I little by little optimized posture, pattern, rhythm, many things, details finetuning, from the running pattern. Today, with 7b, it struck me, what seems logical, that a throw is an ``element´´ of the pattern after all and it would make sense to start right off with one ``easiest´´ throw, and then try to keep doing all subsequent throws alike. I actually tried that starting with 5.fth(?) or 7.th(?) throw from launch, and got very smooth rather low patterns, extremely easy throwing with spare time plenty, but into early fails.   Kind of ``inductive´´ vs ``deductive´´ approaches so to say - from the pattern to best way to do the throw versus going from the single, individual throw to the desired pattern. (As we all know..) Often, in general, there's (at least) those two options to achieve a goal, those two ends from which to approach a pattern and improving on it: going for the maximum, that you can't do (then e.g. pumping, forcing, going for it, risking all), as opposed to starting and improving from the minimum, that you can do (then e.g. pyramid practise, short controlled runs).

# 7 balls, 5 balls, 117 minutes

Started off with a cold start on 7b, but it was so stiff and sedate that I preferred to warmup with 5b:
5b casc varied - 17 min.   Didn't want to do that long, but enduring wristy 7-high was hardly longer (127 throws and way below) than I want 7b runs to be.   Also (very) high and also fast runs.
7b casc - 100 min.   63, 55, 49, 49, 44(? 46?) throws longest runs. Okay yield and feel after two not so good days' practise.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 7b casc varied, 204 minutes

5b warmup div - 7 min.   In five attempts, didn't get an all up 180° (4 back to cascade throws + drop).   Cascade high, wristy, fast.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Four times 8 gathers.
7b casc - 130 min.   45, 45, 52, 47, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 52 ]
In between, just for a change, did some high patterns, and also tried to pull down from high to low. It went into an own stint of
  7b casc varied - ~+10 min. High + pull down - got one pulled down and up high again. Wide\\narrow - hard (but opened that dimension at least). Walking start (foreward or backwards - doesn't matter), then keep walking walk back 'n forth. Low fast patterns and head-high flashes.
5b fastest - 7 min.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 197 minutes

5b casc varied - 5 min.   warmup: high (11 throws b-maybe-d-high); wristy; fast.
9b flashing - 55 min.   Five times 8 gathers.   12, 12, (12)?, 10, 10, 15, 10, 11(? 13?), 15 throws launches into collapse.
7b casc - 117 min.   57 cl, 69, 49, 59, 45, 50, 43 cl, 61, 45, [short break], 44, 51, 45 throws longest runs. Better again, weary, worn start a few minutes, then good arms until only towards end somewhat burning, so stopped just a bit earlier and ended with 5b [see below]. Agreable fresh temperature, cooling, but not chilly, shoulder-free t-shirt.   [ daily7b II: 69 ] Great yield, good runs, good feel, just struggling to settle in good patterns.
5b [tutti frutti] - 20 min.   A bit each, whatever came to my mind, 56752 (bad, stopped), single bx (got two), double reachovers (fails), all up 180° (fails), rev casc (a few periods, felt good), half-tennis (not so good, then a run with 7 rev throws), fastest (pretty speedy, no very long runs).

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, #focus, 5 balls, 229 minutes

5b casc varied - 9 min.   high.   wristy.
9b flashing - 86 min.   Six or seven times 8 gathers.   Several >9 throws launches roundabout: 10, 11, 12, 12, 13 t 6 g, 13 t 6 g, 11, 14(?), 13, 12, or so.   #SoL #focus - [And here's your next ``clue´´ for nine, folks:] "All of a piece"-launches: keeping focus on the first ball thrown during the whole launch then done from peripheral view (instead focussing on the crossing point or on whatever, then only later spotting that first ball), will make the whole rest of the launch better timed after that first ball's flight-time (and goes right into rethrows, provided it's become a good pattern).
7b casc - 134 min.   47, 49 throws longest runs.   If I knew what might have been wrong, I'd have tried to fix during 2½h; but what if it's the colder weather that makes me do with colder, stiffer arms and muscles and joints(? but I'm not even needing gloves!?). But then again - I now while logging realize - I should do such a little in-between-varying-stint as I've done before (high, low, pull high down again, wide\\narrow, ..). Also, shoulders and forearms burning not at a limit, but more than usual.   [ daily7b II: 49 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #ballproperties, 5 balls, 196 minutes

5b casc varied - 4 min.   9-b-high.   wristy 7-high.   (also tried wristy 9-high: wrists ``unleashed´´, full thrust, but with help of the forearms pushing / thrusting up, and notably rowing with whole arm)
9b flashing - 60 min.   Bad, balls felt too big and sticky when releasing at launch, they didn't seem to ``want´´ to leave the hand (not over 7 gathers, 8 in reach a few times). Washed them late that stint, which made it feel much better, swift launching again, and after a while of fighting found back into pattern and got my one 8 gathers' launch. [ #ballproperties ]
7b casc - 127 min.   43, 44, 51 cl throws longest runs (all on meadow).   A hard phase in between, after changing from meadow to under bridge, unfresh sore arms - only shortly sitting down for a snack and watering arms and shoulders wiped it all away, but I didn't get a long run anymore.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]
5b casc - 5 min.   no long runs (~100 throws)

Total practice time: 196 minutes
