# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, 8 balls triplex, 3 balls, #otu, 3 clubs basics, 4 balls, #geometry, #technique, #theory, 8 balls, 300 minutes

3c basics - ~20 min Normal clubs, not usual wooden ones - horrible!: don't catch well, don't collect well - too fat 'n bouncy; too big, spin near my face, and too big in general, they need too much space and reduce scope of reach; they hit palm and fingers instead sliding into; by merely existing they take in precious space, where there could be sth else. :o])   However, managed a bx as triple with stronghand and one as double with whd back to cascade (which i don't dare with wood).
3b, (4b) overhead xhd splits - ~25 min. #otu   3b - [43]20 - went well; 4b nothing.   Much different than i expected .. range is much smaller, so must be the pattern. And hands can't circle as usual - think, i don't like overheads, but maybe i find a way (e.g. alternating inside\\outside throws, e.g. elbows pointing foreward).
4b asy fountains i/o - ~10 min.   #SoL #technique #geom - Had the idea to orient on the shared vanishing point (somewhere far below the pattern) in the normal ftn (throwing away from it) in order to somehow link two 1hd 2b together, which worked very good. Reverse ftn (vanishing point is far above pattern) even better. - #theory - Found out, a rev ftn isn't much different from a rev casc when all throws are thrown to the middle.
8b wimpy - ~5 min.   6 gathers max. Once 8 c in reach.
8b [567][22]2 - ~25 min.   Got four triplex thrown (12 balls), 10 catches. I like that trick and think, i can get more catches.
5b fastest - ~30 min.   Good runs. Getting ``zony´´.
5b 56752 - ~70 min.   #SoL - Early remembered to look low; but feels very different and new: the 7-s fly up out of sight. So had to look slightly higher, too high to focus on the 5-s and 6-es only.
7b casc - ~115 min.   ,,,[X] ,,,,48 ,,,,,43 ,,41 ,,41 ,,, throws runs longer than 40 th. [Commas = timeline; [X] = break]   [ dailyLongestRun7b: 48 ]

Total practice time: 300 minutes

Location: uneven cobbles under bridge
