# 7 balls, #PR, #outstandingRuns, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 225 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   111 throws 6-high into collision.   173 t 5-high to drop(s).
9b flashing - 75 min.   Six times 8 gathers.   Sort of 11, 11, 13, 15, 13, 11, 12(? 14?) throws' launches.
7b casc - 135 min.   °woueeee°: 57, 53, 43, 45, 69, 53, 83 c cl new #PR, 49, 45, 51, 49, 43, 48, 75 (near old PR was only second best today!?), 45 throws longest runs.   #outstandingRuns - (outstanding by being longest and PR, else like other runs before) - bad start, pattern too fast or I was behind with handspeed .. had to struggle to keep it up at all (but after that, it's always good to have the worst part done and behind) .. got a pattern a bit too high for my taste (~4 ft above head), but managed to pull it down a bit (~3 ft sth) and get it ``comfortable´´ .. had one or two ``explosive´´ full power corrections at about 35 and or 40+ (50?) throws .. then it rolled as easy as can, ``cascady´´, untensed, downright relaxed, and went on and on .. lost control on a few flawly throws in a row, and managed to go to an ugly (selfthrow? a low 5?) full collect after slight collision and with two clustered balls. I've had over 80 throws formerly, but to collapse. Confirming with 75 t later this stint was very important to me (to not have it be an irrationally lucky peak run).   [ daily7b II: 83 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 277 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.   (also:) all up 90° ('got it once), single bx 90°, fastest.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 3 min.   85 throws 6-7-high. 239 t endured.
5b 56752 - 35 min.   Once into 9th side. Two times 8th side collapsing.
9b flashing - 82 min.   Four or five times 8 gathers.   After an hour, noticed, grip wasn't good - left out some air and it felt notably better, balls squishier again, better grip, better launch, but didn't get anything anymore.
7b casc - 127 min.   43, 48, 51, 53, 53, 43, 43, 53 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 229 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 18 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 7 min.   55 throws wristy 6-high to collision.   225 t 5-high.
9b flashing - 47 min.   Two times 8 gathers, plus one ``almost´´ with three or four rebounds before drop into 7 g.   Another 9 c in reach: should really have gotten it, but the last ball miraculously fell right through the space occupied by catchhand (i suspect a wormhole or higher mights or lifeforms beyond human perception and awareness teasing me, you know).   One or two attempts on unreasonable hasted rethrows.
7b casc - 157 min.   50, 61, 45, 47, 54, 45, 51, 53 throws longest runs. Best clean was 41 c cl.   [ daily7b II: 61 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 247 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 20 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min. 95 throws wristy 6-high to collision. 209 t 5-high to collision.
9b flashing - 65 min. Two times 8 gathers. Again, theoretically 9 c in reach: time plenty after spotting around 3(?) last balls, but had bodycaught already and inevitably leaving bodycatches only, for those incoming last balls (ended 6 gathers). No rethrows. (m.)
7b casc - 142 min. 47, 47, 47, 51, 53, 49, 45, 45, 43 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 53 ]
5b fastest - 10 min. Good runs, speedy, low, but no very long runs.

# 7 balls, #focus, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 208 minutes

( after two partly chilly, down to 15°C and below, rainy days, now near perfect again and more warm & dry & sunny days ahead )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 12 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Around 100 throws wristy 6-high.
9b flashing - 63 min.   One million times 7 gathers.   Two times 8 g.   11 throws into 7 gathers. 13 throws. (only rethrow attempts, i think)
  #SoL #technique - new little insight / tuning:   It struck me towards end of stint, that in the past I have been throwing the first two throws to abrupt, with abrupt movement up as if i were throwing from loose wrist, which doesn't make sense for the first ball from stronghand - a fifth ball on top of diamond gripped four others (and weakhand then following with its first launched fourth ball on the index where it would make sense to try wristy already, but so far, I let it ``follow´´). I am doing them a bit slowlier in any case, but somehow, I managed to even then do them in an abrupt way.   If I do those two throws softer and explicitly get their thrust from forearms almost only, I should get more control over my launches becoming well structured (upto now, I wasn't sure, what exactly makes me sometimes get it well, sometimes bad). Gotta try like that again and track this.
7b casc - 128 min.   44, 43 cl, 43 cl, 44, 53, 53, 45, 49 cl, 55, 66, 53 throws longest runs. Pretty great yield, but I wasn't satisfied, for example, I lost several good runs on ~35 throws' mental (or whatever physiological) barrier, and also did tensed a lot and didn't easily get or stay in snapped-in patterns; no question of ``settling´´ in good patterns, which is my next step & level. Nonetheless, happy with a good yield of course.   [ daily7b II: 66 ]
  Also here, found yet a new aspect, "issue" even: #SoL #focus #endupatt - I am often focussing on stronghands' balls up for orientation, while I should rather partage my attention equally on any / both hands' last balls up. It's surely a result of my alltime stronghand \ weakhand asymmetry that never bothered me, but the issue is one of focus mainly. [Note to self:] Also work on, work with, and track this!
5b fastest - 5 min.   (no long runs)

# 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, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, #ballproperties, 192 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Short run 7-high.   Longer run wristy 5-to-6-high.
9b flashing - 45 min.   About ten times 7 gathers. One 8 g. No rethrows iirc.   #ballproperties - Balls felt too big and bouncy, not so squishy, and had several ringfingerballslips at launch; presuming they had blown up from cold to warm, I left some air out and indeed a bit whizzed out, but it wasn't much better.   Okay stint, though, structured promising patterns, little spread (smaller radius - used to pick up drops upto one and half yard away - now often they drop right near me or just a step away).
7b casc - 127 min.   Meager yield: 44 cl, 61, [short break 8'], 43 throws longest runs; felt much better 'n that. Hadn't done speedy enough yesterday I now realized. "Nimble" wouldn't get an also comfortable, smooth pattern if not paired with speediness  ( of throwing movement, dwelltime, handspeed, that is, ((not of tact, beat cadence)) ).  Same with "swift" or anything, ratios an' all, done right - without a certain speediness it'll be tensed or doing `behind´ the pattern's speed.   After break had completely lost ratio, pattern, swiftness and it stayed like that. Better again tomorrow!  [ daily7b II: 61 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 213 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 1 min.   149 throws run 5-high.
9b flashing - 65 min.   Over 20 times 7 gathers. No 8 g (?!), and only two or three 8 g in reach. Maybe 9 c in reach, but spotted late and last balls came fast. Two or three launches with not so reasonable rethrows.
7b casc - 137 min.   Mediocre yield: 57, 47, 47, 43 throws longest runs, and corresponding performance: got it well only shortly, but mostly struggling to get it comfortably snapped-in.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

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.
