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

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 48 min.   [Apart from usual:] Bx + 90°-turn.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 12 min.   Wristy 6-high. ~140 5-high.
9b flashing - 10 min.   Smaller-equal 6 gathers. (warm, droppy, tedious, no halfway fresh speedy moving - didn't seem to make much sense, so stopped)
5b 56752 - 58 min.   Several 8th sides, none clean. One 9th side clean.
7b casc - 127 min.   57 (clean, i think), 53, 43 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 9 balls flashing, 5 heavy balls, 300 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 78 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   Wristy 6-high. 5-high.
9b flashing - 23 min.   One 7 gathers. Three rethrows, and two rethrows, both of the reasonable kind, this time with well kept focus on first two balls (not as usual from an overall clearly higher than necessary pattern).
5b 56752 - 60 min.   Several 8 sides, one of which clean. Two 9th sides to crop(s) or collapse. One 10th side to drop(s) or collapse.   Also did very very low attempts ("fastest", 7-s at head-height) and got like two rounds or so at most.   #SoL - [as mentionned in an earlier log recently .. ] That 5 without delay right after the crescendo really gets a better fluent rhythm. Another issue I think to have looked through today is: when hurrying, galoping the crescendo, the pause-hold gets longer ( but I'm not sure, and how much and-or where the timing can or cannot be tweaked slightly is not trivial ((and affects everything: dwelltime, flight-height, technique, rhythm-tweak, melody, handspeed, thrust and all)) ).
7b casc - 130 min.   43, 43, [break], 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 45 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 heavy balls, 3 clubs tricks, 3 clubs basics, 215 minutes

( >30°, muggy, partly airless, little to no wind )
3c basics - 5 min   320 c cl doubles.   53 throws triples (pretty good, maybe longest ever), with two or three halves among.
3c tricks - 8 min   441, 531, 34530, all so-so.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 33 min.   441 and even 2b-411 - like with clubs after two rounds - were puzzling. Got 5-6 rounds when focussing on the 1-s in 441.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   48 throws wristy 6-high.
9b flashing - 22 min. ( too warm for, but 9b's just soo 'greedy', so took a chance on 'em )   An early 8 gathers and five 7 g. Hardly any rethrows (once or twice two or three).
5b 52567 - 40 min.   Some 8th sides, some of which clean. One 10th side.
7b casc - 98 min.   One long 61 throws run. Rest below 40.   [ daily7b II: 61 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, #invention, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, #otu, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 263 minutes

3c basics - 5 min   212 c cl on doubles.   22, 36 throws to drop on triples.
3c tricks - 15 min  
          441 - three rounds to drop on the third 1.
          531 - bad, first time ever tried #otu . High 5, then galopping 31 could be an approach.
          34530 - Three times the sequence with cascade in between to a clean collect. This pattern is more and more fun the better I get it .. having two clubs in the air (the 4 and the 5) that will land right and handles to the point, and throwing out another one (the 3) feels great.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 28 min.   [ yesterday: ] You can catch a ball between handback and the inside upper part of the other forearm (near the el); then roll it up like that from there using the forearm as a ramp. #inventions
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   120 throws 6-high.   215 th on rather lower 5-height.
9b flashing - 40 min.   Only one 7 gathers launch. A few more or less reasonable upto 3 rethrows. Stopped when I got multiple releases when overspeeding and wanting too much (instead trying well-tempered), so to say.
5b 52567 - 57 min.   A 10th, a 9th side to drop(s). Another long run 11(?) or 13(?) sides to collapse. Rest rather upto 7 sides.
7b casc - ~95 min.   Not over 39 c cl today.   [ daily7b II: 39 ]
In between took a plunge in the river.
5b fastest - 13 min.   Upto 30+.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 3 clubs tricks, 3 clubs basics, 5 heavy balls, 277 minutes

3c basics, tricks - 12 min   80 doubles. Triples messy - it was windy.   441 - got 441441441 to collapse, but three rounds is rare 'cos I usually confuse "left hand", "right hand", "which club next" and "4" and "1" (and "not 2" and "not 3") after the second round.   34530 - three times the sequence to awkward ugly but full collect, which is the or among best I ever got with this. Also 2 seq. per run two times to collapse and once to full collect.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 33 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 7 min.   127 c cl 6-high.
9b flashing - 18 min.   Again an early 8 gathers launch. Then nothing more. ( It was a bit strenuous, and it didn't seem, I'd get anything easily anymore, though you never know, but I'd rather went on with, and spend the time on next up on schedule ..
5b 52567 - 20 min.   Not over 6 sides, not even clean.
Very flabby form here, and felt airless in spite of a good breeze - downright needed a break amidst this stint.
more 5b 52567 - 40 min.   After drinking, lying down and stretching my back, watering T-shirt and muscles, with clearly better form worked myself into several 8th sides.
7b casc - 147 min.   43 cl, 65, 47, 43, 47, 45 cl throws longest runs. [another short break in between]   [ daily7b II: 65 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, #otu, 9 balls flashing, 3 clubs tricks, 3 clubs basics, 5 heavy balls, 340 minutes

3c basics - 5 min   305 doubles, first attempt.   15, 25 triples, first and second attempt.   6 c cl quadruples on 2.nd attempt.
3c tricks - 15 min423 - puzzled at first, then got a few rounds.
          441(4) - got this: 441441423423, into ..423 simply happened getting rid of that hand's club under a low 4.
          34530 (single double triple single) - got two times the sequence within a run with clean cascade in between to an ugly but full collect. I'm less ``afraid´´ of the 5-s landing who knows where causing collisions and chaos, but now know where they belong and that they won't hit me.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 55 min.   among usual freestyling a mixture of single reachovers, penguins, claws, fastest (rev--normal--normal--a.so.), drops(?), levels(?), horizontal slams, racketing, tried
      all up + 90° [ #otu ] but soon cut that leaving it for normal (less harder, less heavy, less risky) balls.
      Did "slowly-roll-towards-elcrook-and-take-and-throw-ball-from-there" all the while going on cascading, in a five-beat, i think, stronghandside only (weakhand taking and throwing); I think I kept s'swap 3, not 423 or sth.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   Wristy 6-high, several periods (~50-100 throws? Didn't count).
9b flashing - 50 min.   Doubtful at very first attempts, soon found into a few acceptable launches, then two early 8 gathers. Accumulated ten times 7 gathers.   Got a few unreasonable rethrows, but tried at least.
5b 52567 - 65 min.   Two 9th sides. One 12th side.
7b casc - 145 min.   55, 49, 48, 43, 57 cl, 47, 57 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 heavy balls, 210 minutes

( It was warm enough to go in the shade today. )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 25 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 7 min.   255 throws varying on heights.
9b flashing - 12 min.   Bad. <=6 gather. Moskitos disturbing, searched 5 mins for a ball lost in the grass, washed the balls (for them to be brighter when searching them in the grass), then decided to quit 9b under such conditions for today.
5b 52567 - 55 min.   Upto 8th and 9th sides. Okay stint.
7b casc - 110 min.   Only a 43 and a 47 throws longest runs.   ( .. and again lost time searching a ball in the grass. )   [ daily7b II: 47 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 236 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 18 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   ~150 throws 5-high.
9b flashing - 40 min.   Five times 7 gathers, one of which should count as 8 g as it were three rebounds before drop, the pattern surely an ``8 gather pattern´´.   Much better than yesterday .. no idea what the difference was .. .   Also two rethrows once, which is always important for staying tuned to the ``real´´ pattern.
5b 52567 - 43 min.   Upto a few 8 sides, one or two of which clean, and an ugly last rounds' throws' 9th side full caught.
7b casc - 130 min.   Only a 47 and 43 throws longest runs. Rest 40 and below.   A few short phases felt pretty poised again .. but that's not enough. One longer rather unfresh hard phase .. got through it by kind'a doing awaiting, "preparing for when air will cool down later" (which I knew it would). I wonder if it would make sense to do sth else in such phases, like maybe endure 5b or start doing 6b goodfor7b s'swaps.   [ daily7b II: 47 ]

# 7 balls, #season, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, #nature, 270 minutes

( great weather, not too warm plus some wind, partly a bit fresh even. good form. )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 17 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
9b flashing - 25 min.   Bad. Not over 6 gathers. Not speedy enough, inaccurate.
5b 52567 - 62 min.   A good bunch 6th, two or three 7th, and several 8th sides one of which clean. Also one 11th side plus two throws into 12th side; surely a top 3 or top 4 best runs ever; but I couldn't get even near confirming, so I'll rate it as an ``irrational´´ peak run or a ``purely statistical outbreaker´´ and anyway still far away from where I want to overall be with that pattern.
7b casc - 162 min.   45, 57, [ short break, 10+ min, snack and lie down two minutes ], 47 cl, 46 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]   #season - Also here: not happy with a lack of palpable progress ( that I've been hoping on since spring, delayed since gorgeous runs and yields last fall, cf. 7b entry Sept, 2016 ) .. am getting too few very good very long runs to get any increased training effect on them.

#nature - swallows - not much lacking and they'll fly right through my higher patterns.
