# 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)

# 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, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, 7 balls splits, #StagesOfLearning, 8 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, #conditions, 366 minutes

Perfect #conditions .. mostly sunny, 16°-17° Celsius, mild breeze just strong enough to keep early year's moskitoes away, a bit fresh too partly from breeze or under a cloud, which in turn freshened me up.
3c basics, tricks - 27 min   124, 133 doubles. 21, 24 triples.   Three times one round of 34530 back to casc (2 str'hd, 1 weakhd). Two times one sequence of 4414 from casc to clean collect.   Also tried casc with bottleneck (catches &) throws as exercise for flat fronts (that aren't easy as continuous throws), but these aren't any easier.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 90 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
5b all up 180° - 13 min.   Early, once into cascade throws caught clean - couldn't confirm within the rest of this stint.
5b 56752 - 60 min.   Upto a late 8 sides clean run. More than 6 sides are still not obvious and granted.
7b splits - 14 min.   Upto 14 c cl (7 duplex).   #SoL - Speedy tact about 4b-height-speed-ratio ( I tend to do it too slow). And should spread better with help of thumb.
8b wimpy - 12 min.   11 throws max. Nothing clean.   Should throw more from middle with lower to no crossing point for balls to not interfere so much. Goes for 7b and 9b too.
9b flashing - 10 min.   <= 6 gathers.
7b casc - 120 min.   53, 45, 43, 49, 56 throws longest runs.   No real break whole session, so somewhat weary & worn here, but just want this to roll preferably soon than too late. Some shorter good phases with nice throwing into top well and or easy fluent rhythm (in spite spent form) were remunerating for effortish and-or many early fails in longer bad phases.   [ daily7b II: 56 ]
5b fastest - 15 min.

# 5 ball tricks, 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, #otu, 5 heavy balls, 7 balls splits, 9 balls flashing, 8 balls, 257 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 47 min.   incl. 5-high claws, okay. 55500 flashes unprecise, risky (for health - balls are pretty hard).   #otu - Also - just a bit - tried a start with outstretched arms up + keep last hand high, but didn't get that far.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   9-high.   As high as would go wristy without effort ( --> between 5- and 7-high ).
Alternated between ..
  5b all up 180° - 12/2 min.   One back into 6 cascade throws clean caught. One into 5 th + drop.
.. and ..
  5b 75751 - 12/2 min.   Got 6 throws from cascade ..55555..757517 almost a few times, one drop each or so.
5b 56752 - 72 min.   One 9th side clean. One 7th side clean. Many 6th sides, but only two or three of which clean.
7b splits - 13 min.   9 duplex thrown. 6 duplex thrown was second best. Best clean was only 10 c cl.
9b flashing - 13 min.   Didn't feel like exhausting on this today and got like nothing ( <= 6 gathers a lot).
8b wimpy - 10 min.   12 throws to drops. Nothing clean.
7b casc - 80 min.   49, 55, 43 cl, 45, 53, 47, 53, 65, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 65 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 balls, 8 balls, 5 heavy balls, 255 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.   including rarely done consecutive claws.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   stopped when I felt tension in forearms from doing upto 9-high.
5b casc varied - 10 min.   including trying to joggle, could make a few steps to collapse.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Four times 7 gathers. Three times 8 g.
8b wimpy - 10 min.   A few times 10 throws. nothing clean.
5b 52567 - 35 min.   One 7th side to collapse. A few 6 sides, one of which clean.
7b casc - 110 min.   51, 47, 43 throws longest runs. Felt very nimble, speedy, even though somewhat tensed, forcing, eager. Changed spot to concreted area among the fields and didn't get it well anymore.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #mentec, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 8 balls, 5 balls, 220 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.
5b casc varied - 5 min.
5b 52567 - 15 min.   A 6 sides clean run.
9b flashing - 40 min.   Three times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach, and one of which 9 c in reach (was a few milliseconds late with catching two).   #mentec, #SoL - At a point, when launches came well so far, I did nothing anymore of all I do special for 9b, be it focus on this or that, or be it the launching rhythm, be it intending a flash to collect or rethrows no matter what, .. but just did like it were 7 balls on 9-height only (if all that makes sense), sort of regardless of the number "nine", just empty the hands. Indeed felt different, normal, familiar, not so ``elaborated´´, but it didn't manifest in good results.
8b wimpy - 10 min.   One 8 c cl. One 12 throws to collapse. A few 10 throws to drop or collapse.
7b casc - 120 min.   47, 57, 45, 53, 47 cl throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 8 balls, 3 heavy balls, 195 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~5 min.            
5b casc varied - ~10 min.
5b 52567 - ~25 min.   Two 5 rounds clean. Two 6 rounds to collapse.
9b flashing - ~35 min.   #SoL, #technique - tried a new way for aiming, with focus on the trajectory (the vector even) from the spot where the hand releases. Throwing along it with the right amount of thrust will necessarily give a good pattern (in theory).   Got three 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach. Last 15 minutes, went for rethrows, nevermind any earlier outbreakers or drops, but did bad and hardly got patterns allowing for any.
8b wimpy - ~10 min.   Once or twice 8 c cl. Rethrows bad.
7b casc - ~110 min.   51, 41, 43, 49, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]

5b casc varied - ~5 min.
5b 52567 - ~15 min.   (4th and 5th sides)
8b wimpy - 15 min.   Two times 8 c cl, only after calibrating first throws to collect.
7b casc - 125 min.   47*, 42, 47, 43, 43, 53, 45, 55 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]   * - this was best gorgeous run, a lower one, but didn't seem fast at all; perfect stable pattern; felt just like 5b.
