# 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 5 balls, prop mix, 3 ball tricks, 175 minutes

35' - 5b endure \ easiest pattern - longest runs were 731, 539 throws.

40' - 5b single bx - Upto 6 bx per run.   #SoL - As it went well early that stint, I tried in a faster beat; I usually need two to three periods of cascade to do a next backcross, in good phases at least like 7-8-[sth] throws in between to pull pattern back down, get it stable, and prepare the backcross with higher throws. Sort of no chance to get it faster .. guess I need them bx from a constant good height to do anything consecutive or in a fast beat. Same with weakhand - needs own special attention and stint, once I get reliable stronghand ones and fewer fails.
        [n.t.s.: iii 4 ntcl, 4 tcl, 6 ntbd, 5 tcl, 5 ntcl, ]

85' - 5b rev casc - 37, 37 cl, 39, 45 cl, 42, 47, 55, 43 cl, 51, 52, 45, 43 throws runs to drop(s) [unless labeled "clean"] longer than 30 throws.

5'   - 5b horizontal throws - or: horizontal tennis, one ball 5-count own orbit horizontal rev throw through the pattern.

5'  - mixed props 4b1c - got one awkward qualify. Started with the tiny club wherever it came out in any hand, over\under other balls, after collect or after picking up drops.

5'  - 3b inv box - exercising "aimed slamming".

# 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, prop mix, 3 ball tricks, 150 minutes

30' - 5b endure \ easiest pattern - 393, 394, 651, 978 throws runs.

45' - 5b single bx - Upto a 6 bx per run run and a 7/r run. Yet too many fails and not fluent enough to start doing weakhand too and doing consecutives.
        [n.t.s.: 4 btctbd, 5 ntc, 6 btctbd, 4 tbd, 4 ntbd, 4 btctbd, 5 tbd, 7 ntcl, 4 V, ]

60' - 5b rev casc - 42, 37, 44, 38, 33 cl, 43, 43, 39 cl, 37, throws runs.

10' - mixed 2b1c(1r)

5'  - 3b inv box - have to aim where the hand will be (and not yet is, other than doing 1b "1"-es where the hand is always where the ball comes and, vice versa, you can aim where the hand is, right).

# 7 balls, 5 balls, prop mix, 200 minutes

Needed three breaks to fix a bike tire. A flock of kids felt like freakin' out - I was their prey (they applauded and screamed on even every fail lol in a bad 7b phase). And did with different balls. No practising rhythm whatsoever, just struggling to keep anything up.
Usual ~20' of 5b preliminaries, but did with badly underfilled beanbags.
A few attempts on 4b1c with a tiny (17,5 cm, 70g) weighed slim-neck plastic bottle as club (spins faster) - pretty hard, max two periods. - ~5'
7b cascade - ~175' -   Changed to MMX after a good while .. difficult launches with those 'sacks', but, once all up well, got some good runs (didn't count, maybe best ~35-40±) partly felt great for a change, at aiming and for being different, but didn't get any steady good phase.   MMX weren't much better .. got a counted 43 throws run very late (before that max 31), but hardly anything snapped-in, cascadily easy. In between the kids came near and I gave them balls to try themselves (2b shower) and instructed a bit when they asked (and when not :o) ).   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 43 ]
