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 ]

changed spot to meadow for last ½ hour

# 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 ]

# 7 balls, #outstandingRuns, 5 ball tricks, 8 balls, 5 balls, 160 minutes

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.

# 7 balls, 5 balls, 8 balls, #PR, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, #efficiency, #otu, #conditions, #ballproperties, 160 minutes

3' 5b warmup.
5b 52567 - 12 min.   No great yield (4th and 5th sides), but okay for short stint and it felt okay.
8b wimpy - 20 min.   #SoL, #technique, #otu, #efficiency - remembered I did too narrow last time, so wanted to use width better; on that behalf, other than usual, did the first pair of throws to collect for calibration once or twice to make sure I wouldn't be throwing ``somewhere up somehow´´, which was very helpful!?   10 catches clean, awkard last 2 catches with several contacts tilting them up before catching them arm to body, new #PR, and confirmed soon after. Further 8 c cl twice, 9 gathers, 12 throws.
7b casc - 115 min.   41, 51, 41, 53, 47 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]   4 gathers on an impulsive 7 up 180° - maybe not impossible.
5b fastest - 10 min.

#conditions - partly in the rain, made balls slip when wet or stick to hands when slightly moist.
