# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 7 balls splits, #otu, 235 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~10 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~30 min.   Max 8 gathers once - finally some palpable progress! Changed to "aim where they land" for that one; am partly more getting what can be called "a pattern in the air" with an outlook on hopefully catching them all soon or late or even doing one-two rethrows. Also twice 7 gathers.
5b 52567 - ~40 min.   Three times 16 c cl. No fifth side today.
In between tried a few attempts on crosshand overheads for 5b splits, then 3b only, failing (very small range of reach). #otu
7b casc - ~138 min.   43, 43, 43, 43, [no typo, no loop, happened like that] break, (5' 5b div - fast - 180°), 41, 43, 53 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 53 ] ( 43 reflects today's stint better :o) )
7b splits - ~3 min.
5b fast(est) - ~4 min.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 7 balls splits, 240 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~20 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~25 min.   Two times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach (slipped from weakhand's index grip).
5b 52567 - ~40 min.   Max caught clean was 21 c cl and 20 c cl. Four more times near full fifth side thrown (19-20 th) to drop or collapse. Two times 16 c cl.   (Still) Doing 6-es with effort, and, if I can manage, throwing a nice geometry gives better results cleaner and longer runs. Also a speedy sidechange, but then right after not haste the pause (the hold) - there is the time for doing that (slowly) in beat and not galop that part, if the high throws were well on height.
7b casc - ~147 min.   60, 41 -- 49, 42, [break], 45, 47, 41, 43 throws runs longer than 40 th. [" -- " = consecutive runs]   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 60 ] Just that one peak run, that I couldn't confirm; but felt swift today anyway.
7b splits - ~3 min.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 7 balls splits, #conditions, 230 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~35 min.   Only one 7 gathers launch. (Many 6 g, several 7 in reach.)
5b 52567 - ~45 min.   Max 21 throws to collapse. Two times full fifth side. Two times 16 catches clean.   #SoL - Yet another way of doing with focus on sidechange and focus on which side's turn to be thrown to. That was also a bit about not thinking the first 5 as single throw, but rather "(whole) other side now", thus taking focus away from that (then more automized) 5.   Other issue: I can or should wait longer with the 6-es.
7b casc - ~127 min.   49, 43, break, 43, 45 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 49 ]
7b splits - ~3 min.   10 c cl. Max 7 throws.
#conditions - Lost a lot of time and constant practise feel lighting, relighting and positioning incense and fighting disturbing moskitos.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 3 clubs tricks, 5 heavy balls, 5 ball splits variations, 7 balls splits, 8 balls triplex, #PR, 290 minutes

3c 34530 - ~5 min   Awkward, unclean stuff, mostly fails.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~35 min.   Got twice an armcurl (42ARMCURL3) back to cascade.   Fast, very wide throws don't make much difference thrown past under the other arm.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~10 min.
5b splits bx - ~10 min.   18 c cl (#PR).
7b splits - ~10 min.   Max throws to collapse / drop were 9, 11. Twice 14 c cl.
8b [567][22]2 - ~5 min.   Several times 5 throws.
5b 52567 - ~60 min.   #PR - 20 catches clean - took half an eternity for the last high throws to land, me being under tension to not get a drop or slip or rebound. Did indeed (for my mind's ears or so) sonificate JM for DOS's beep-melody which felt helpful. Still thinking of high throws over low 5-s (not as °567°-crescendo) with emphasized 6-es. Several more runs into fifth sides' throws and full fifth side(s?) to breakdown. Also did a bit of 3b 1hd weakhand (to check my weakhand-6-es), np, ~9 throws.
7b casc - ~150 min.   41 cl, 53, 42, break, 5b re-warmup, 43, 47, 55, 45, 41, 44 cl, 44, 43 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 55 ] .. It - that simple cascady feel - does have to snap in after launch (and doesn't come by itself yet).
.. in between 5b casc varied - ~5 min.   fastest. wristy throws.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 7 balls splits, 5 ball splits variations, 5 heavy balls, 8 balls triplex, #PR, 5 balls, #efficiency, 285 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~35 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
5b splits bx - ~15 min.   ~6 x 8 c cl. 3 x 10 c cl. 1 x 14 c cl.
7b splits - ~25 min.   14 c cl -- simply higher! -- three times nine throws to breakdown, but clearly better.
8b [567][22]2 - ~5 min.   18 c cl (#PR) .. also here higher!
#efficiency - I tend to want my patterns low and fast, but I have enough accurracy to do higher for learning yet uncontrolled patterns in general .. so I should be aware of it, and not intuitively avoid any greater spread (that I can control), and-or not do low by custom or - heaven forfend! - by mere laziness. :-o
5b 52567 - ~60 min.   Upto fourth side (not aware of any fifth). One or two runs felt really good, though.
7b casc - ~135 min.   45 (slipcatch), 46 (collision), 47 (general breakdown), 69 (breakdown after last period with effort), [break], [5b re-warmup], 45, 49 -- 45, 51, 41 throws runs longer than 40 th. [" -- " = consecutive runs;]   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 69 ] Partly very cascady scooping under last ball up and doing well wristy from fingerbasket.
.. in between 5b casc varied - ~5 min.   fastest. wristy 7-high.

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~40 min.   #otu - barrage stuff:   (at steady s'swap 3)   outside column thrown (for reachover catch) -- caught reaching over pulling it fast horizontally through the pattern (between the other balls) + slam it (reverse over incoming ball). Worked, but no way poised or consecutives of it.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
5b splits bx - ~10 min.   1 x 8 c cl. 1 x 10 c cl. Max throws to drop(s) was 6.

8b [567][22]2 - ~5 min.   Upto 5 throws to drop(s).        
5b 52567 - ~60 min.   Two times full fifth side thrown to collapse. Once into (some / part of) fifth sides' throws.
7b casc - ~140 min.   42, 43, 49, 46, 47, 42 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 49 ]

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 5 ball splits variations, 7 balls splits, 8 balls triplex, 270 minutes

Warm up, from lax, easy going with cold arms, slowly get into form and serious whole-body juggling:
  3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~40 min.   More outside--inside--inside-"fastest" than usual, but no long runs ..
    .. i tend to try even faster, rather than going for keeping it up for longer.
  5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.

Just a bit of multiplexing to stay tuned and to give unannounced PRs a chance to drop in, right:
  5b splits bx - ~10 min.   One unreasonable 16 c cl peak run; rest four-five throws, maybe 10 c cl.
  7b splits - ~10 min.   Upto eight throws to breakdown.
  8b [567][22]2 - ~5 min.   Around four throws.

Main:
  5b 52567 - ~40 min.   16 c cl. Upto into fifth sides' throws.
  7b casc - ~150 min.   47, 42, 43 throws runs longer than 40 th.   Hm. Not found into utterly fresh phase or sth.
    A good bunch of runs ~39. Also, casually, some did feel really good, though.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 47 ]
  .. in between 5b casc varied - ~10 min.   fastest. high throws. wristy 7-high.
