# 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.

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.

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.

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 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, #StagesOfLearning, #technique, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, 5 heavy balls, 5 ball splits variations, 7 balls splits, 8 balls triplex, 295 minutes

3c basics - ~5 min   202 doubles (forgot to not do them lol .. simply started O,o). No very long run on triples today: 16, 2, 14, 19, 2, 19.
3c 34530 - ~5 min (singles doubles triples singles)   Got casc -- one round -- casc -- one more round -- full collect.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~25 min.   ~15+ 5-count bb-s (looking) (most ever). That at least (if 3-count still is like impossible)! #SoL #technique - Simple clue was to turn head faster for looking, thus seeing and spotting earlier, thus catching better.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
5b splits bx - ~10 min.   4 x 8 c cl; 1 x 10 c cl; 1 x 12 c cl.
7b splits - ~10 min.   Once each 10 c cl, 12 c cl, 14 c cl. Max throws to breakdown was 10 (16-17 c).
8b [567][22]2 - ~10 min.   15 c cl.
5b 52567 - ~80 min.   Upto a sixth side thrown once. About twice into fifth side.   Melody .. strict beat .. poles to throw along at .. get 6-s well .. = almost too much - lotsa "trying" to get just very few fluent runs with everything ``right´´.
7b casc - ~145 min.   44, 53 -- 55, 50, 43, 45, 43, 45, 59, 43, 41, 41, 45 throws runs longer than 40 th. [" -- " = consecutive runs]   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 59 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, #new, 5 ball splits variations, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, #otu, 5 balls, 7 balls splits, 8 balls triplex, #conditions, #nature, 300 minutes

[tags in about the order of time invested]

3c basics - ~5 min   15, 11, 7, 20, 7, 34, 9, 7, 47 triples.
3c tricks - ~5 min   34530 - two rounds in a run with cascade in between. one to collect.   #otu - a few thumbrolls were okay (gotten, but no full control or embeddable).   Flourishes awkward, fails. I wanted to freely roll them somehow, but it seems, they stay gripped by at least ring- & middlefinger when swung (not rolled somehow). I'll find out - had them better before.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~45 min.   At least my 5-count bb-s get better again.  #new - Also lately doing fast almost horizontal wide throws just-in-time-``sideclawed´´ with outstretched arm.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~10 min.
5b splits bx - ~20 min.   Max throws to breakdown = 6. Max full collect was three times 8 c cl.
7b splits - ~7 min.   Max 8 throws to breakdown. Max full collect was 14 c cl.
8b [567][22]2 - ~8 min.   Upto 6 triplex thrown.
5b 52567 - ~70 min.   Upto five sides. Barely ever got the flow. Twice 16 catches clean - everything for sure caught with appropriate hand this time [A'll pr this as a first landmark].
7b casc - ~120 min.   41, 41, 41 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 41 ] That's all .. destroys my nice series of 10 days 50+ max runs .. only ``excuse´´: #cond. - fumbling around with incense (against tiny flying ``vampires´´) and wind changing, and also took a long while till I unexpectedly found why I didn't get any launch well: day's moon was right behind pattern on the side and tore my launches to an angle with many collisions (lol?). Never got into a concentrated practise rhythm.
.. more (10') 5b-52567 in between.

#nature - grasshoppers are out. :o)

3c basics - ~7 min   709 doubles(! best ever). 25, 41 triples.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~33 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
5b splits bx - ~10 min.   Five times 8 c cl; two times 10 c cl; once 14 c cl; once 15 c and once 16 c cl (= PR confirmed). #SoL - Throwing late when previous throw is already falling, seems to give a good beat.
7b splits - ~10 min.   One 14 c cl; one 16 (18?) c cl (counted "hop-hop-hop--.." so dunno exactly). Max throws to breakdown was 11.
8b [567][22]2 - ~10 min.   Max six throws to breakdown.
5b 52567 - ~45 min.   Upto fifth side thrown. (Thinking it in high pairs, 67 over low 5-s, doing after melody and trying strict after beat, which mainly means no hurried crescendo-throws).
5b fastest - ~10 min.   39 throws run.
5b wristy 7-high - ~10 min.   60, 120, 55, 55, 65, 100 throws runs.
7b casc - ~145 min.   43, 44, 68 (forced an extra bit height for this one), 43, 41, 47, 51, 41, [short break], (5' of more 52567), 45 cl, 57 cl, 61, 44 throws runs longer than 40 th.   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 68 ] Very good yield, good arms, fresh juggling with fresh weather.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, #new, #otu, 7 balls splits, 8 balls triplex, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, 5 heavy balls, 440 minutes

3c basics - ~5 min   271 doubles. 20+ triples. Quads bad, like 3-4 reasonable throws.
3c (1c 2c) tricks - ~10 min   Single bx, bad. #otu - Single flat fronts, got most, partly back to cascade, but awkward catching .. tried bottleneck-catch (1c 2c), but unused also. Flats = horror.   Settled at last in some 34530 (single double triple), where I got single rounds back to cascade, and like two sides thrown per run (with back to casc in between) to collect.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~60 min.   Behind backs aren't as I want them fluent in a 3-, not even 5-count at least.   Am not getting my intuitive(?) autistic(?) routine(?) freestyle without drops for longer runs, or else: without trying a more difficult extra throw (e.g. single contorsionist or bb) soon in a run.   #new - Found a nice way of doing my 3-count clawed reachovers, though, by doing them as column in the middle (hands then alternately claw-throwing there).   #otu - A low Statue Of Liberty (shower to a hand at height of pattern) also went well (pretty trivial, done so low, maybe).
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.   Didn't feel like stressing mee arms with this today.

I knew there was a lot of time today, so for the multiplex, I wanted to push a new PB on any (hopefully "every") of them by like ``doing until´´ ..
5b splits bx - ~70 min.   12 c cl and 10 c cl.
7b splits - ~60 min.   18 c cl and two times 14 c cl.
8b [567][22]2 - ~40 min.   Upto 6 throws.        
So, no new PB alas, but got into the feel of each with good runs.

5b 52567 - ~50 min.   Upto seventh side, i think, but nothing `big´ to a countable collect. Many early fails, and going back to flashing one, two sides every once in a while.   #SoL - new aspect: thinking of the 67-s as ``high pairs´´ above low 5-s [edit, 1d:] That is then doing and shifting focus on "crescendo" only after that 5 .. like 525 | 67 | 525 | 67 | ... not 52 | 567 | .. or 2 |5675 | .. or sth. [end edit] But getting all throws (especially the 6-es and a long hold) well to the right melody, and in a narrow pattern, remains crucial for good runs.
7b casc - ~140 min.   47 cl, 43 cl, 50 throws runs longer than 40 th.  [ dailyLongestRun7b: 50 ] (worn feet, had to `fight´ for fresh runs)
