# 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.

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, #outstandingRuns, #mentec, #endupatt, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, 215 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
5b 56752 - 25 min.   Two 7th to collapse.   Two 6th sides clean.
9b flashing - 30 min.   Five times 7 gathers, one of which out of 10 throws.   2 and 3 rethrows (once each. =11, 12 throws).
7b casc - 115 min.   43, 51, 45, 75[*], 49 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 75 ]
        [*] - #outst'runs, #mentec(?), #endupatt - did not focus on top's shape well, as usually works best, but had had several ~35-37 runs seeming like a barrier right before and wanted to do what I'm actually out for and dare and keep 'em up for a longer run  ( sort of went for it(?), put less focus on counting(?), did with extra spirit(?), sth of the kind, .. mainly "kept going", I guess .. ).  The run itself wasn' to tensed, rather fluent, just had to fight just a bit with right height at around six sets of eight throws.
5b fastest - 10 min.   Very very low & fast, partly racketing, but hardly over 30 throws a few runs. (need 50 throws safe, or a minute)

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 205 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 23 min.            
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 3 min.   7-high only.
5b 56752 - 22 min.   Upto 7 rounds.
9b flashing - 40 min.   Tried "unleashed" from the beginning of stint. (Skipped calibrating first four throws and finding into pattern regarding focus on each, spacing, timing, aiming, speed, near body + front plane. Emptied full hands, thinking of the angle and (speed/thrust-)vector up.   Six times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach.   Once 8 gathers (yeaowh! .. been a while).   11 throws into 6 gathers.
7b casc - 117 min.   43, 57, 51, 43, 45, 43, 55, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

  - - - - - - - -- -[ copy&paste from reddit - think, it's much better stuffed here ]- - - - - - - - - -

Currently doing that [=flashing] with 9b - I don't find it monotoneous at all:

First I warmup on that challengin pattern by calibrating first four throws only until I get them well enough to dare the whole flash \ launch. (~5-10 min)

Then (upto ~10-20 more min), I get chaos up there: either well-timed, but spread astray out of reach, or most balls within range of reach, but badly spaced and -timed, or all well-timed, well-spaced, well-aimed, but overall way too fast. In that phase I get like 5 gathers and less. So, at least then I got sth up in the air to work with:

I will try doing near the body (feels like throwing right above me), to stay within front plane well, or I will try speedier from wrists, or I will try to get my crescendo launch well-spaced. Bailing out any of such flaws that occur, I will get 6 gathers (in that session a first success!?) a lot and casual 7 gathers (success.). (~15-30 min)

And during this latter part, I can after a while get a phase where 8 gathers are possible (success!).

And that on and on since about a year or sth. Got the flash clean once before with small balls, but not with normal size yet.

I am not ever "hoping", but I listen how my arms, forearms, wrists feel, how speediness, spacing and aiming are okay or not, always keen on feeling that confidence of launches feeling ripe for next step which is doing "unleashed" and fire everything up in a rhythm, relying on good throws. I think of the height (and visualize it for aiming), I think of the front plane to be done within, I think of the angles (the visualized vector at release even), .. I'll then "empty the hands" no matter how many balls they might keep.

And that's the phase, where I can go for rethrows, .. that is, ignoring any drops, to rethrow as many balls as possible, and I got like upto 13-15 throws (success!!), with like 6-7 (.. you know --> success.) gathers or so, which feels really great and much different from flashing exactly "nine" balls to a collect - the pattern then also feels even 'bigger', higher, speedier even, yet not hasted, not "too fast", but "well in its right rhythm", and I then know, that nothing that I flash to an awkward collect is the final pattern that will stay up, but only those rethrows give an impression of the jugglable pattern. Any well thrown rethrow is worth tens of flashes and opens the door to the feel of the continouus pattern.
