7 balls, 5 balls, 7 ball tricks, 4 ball tricks, #learningSiteswaps, 110 minutes

5b casc varied - ~10 min.
7b casc - ~95 min. ___ 41, 47, 45, .. .. my patterns felt good enough to dare some #7b_tricks a bit here (~5 mins): °27[75]° (got that with two-three-four afterthrows to a clean collect), and °8956° where I made it to all four throws into a chaos, .. .. 49, 45 throws' runs longer than 40 t. [ daily7b III: 49 ].
In between did ..
~5 mins - 4b-552 ___ not obvious at all, puzzling at first for next hand after the hold always changing and that in a 3-tact (not a 4-tact for 4 balls juggled), respectively puzzling for the hand throwing twice in a row always changing. Got it then, 3 rounds to clean collect, by doing sufficiently high 5-es on about 9- or 8x-height!? °gee#learningSiteswaps

7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, #learningSiteswaps, #StagesOfLearning, #focus, 5 balls, 195 minutes

5b casc varied - ~12 min.
5b 34567 - ~15 min. ___ Upto into incomplete sixth rounds. Best clean was four rounds. ___ #SoL #learningSiteswaps #focus - lacking control, doing behind the timing, reactng more than acting. Focussing on and getting the 6-es well (tend to come as inside columns) is currently clue to longer runs.
9b flashing - ~60 min. ___ Eight times 8 gathers. 11 throws into 7 g, 12 t into 7 g, 13 t into 6 g. Nothing near 9 c today, but nice patterns in the air sometimes.
7b casc - ~108 min. ___ 44, 51, 46 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 51 ]

7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, #learningSiteswaps, #ThinkAs, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 172 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~8 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~4 min.
9b flashing - ~40 min. ___ Six times 8 gathers, two of which almost a flash, but for a bounce and a slip. Another 9 c in sight ended 7 g. Three times 11 t, two of which into 7 g, and one a rather unreasonable one.
5b-34567 - ~10 min. ___ Four rounds into full collect; not sure about it maybe having been only 19 throws (and catches), and if fourth round's throws were all correct. ___ #learningSiteswaps #ThinkAs - Doing by throwing five throws along imaginary poles left--right; ( having done 4b-345, 3b-34530 and 5b-52567 before a lot .. ) the height kind'a even comes automatically into nearest free space over the tower. ___ Fun pattern to roll, I reckon, .. easier than 5b-52567 even, which is more funky.
7b casc - ~110 min. ___ 46, 45, 51, 49 cl, 41, 52, 53 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 53 ]

Re-warmup with 5b °753° - ~7 min. Almost back to cascade. I now know why it goes better when doing with weakhand: stronghand simply can cope better with what mess lands on its side then. (logic!)

7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #learningSiteswaps, 5 balls, 160 minutes

presession: two aches, in a small muscle or ligament in the shoulder (that reappears every once in a while when having done a bad movement), and lumbal on one side. So, I didn't know, if I would be able to do 7 balls and didn't even think of trying nine. More time for 5 balls in any case.
5b casc varied / div - ~25 min.
___ °753° - Seemed a rather far away challenge needing a lot of practise and high priority at first, best being into instant collect, after a few minutes got it with two afterthrows to a clean collect by thinking it as a melody and exaggerating the low throw (that had been too high).
___ °75751° - similar, but after I got the knack, I did three times the sequence in one run (collapsing after last round), going back to cascade after each sequence and doing the 7-s with stronghand only. 3/r.
.. both these s'swaps (maybe all s'swaps?!) are about throwing a gap and filling it again at the right moment. At least, thinking them like that helps me to get them.
___ 52567 - got 4 rounds to clean collect on first try, then another 6 rounds into collapse. Did this maybe a minute only.
___ 25[53]5555 - two rounds clean and maybe four rounds to collapse. Did also this just a little.
___ a bit of all up 180° - didn't get it, but got near.
___ fastest was pretty good, a 29 throws long run and overall really speedy. (~5')
7b casc - ~135 min. ___ 43, 41, 51, 41, 45, 41 cl, 41, 53, 49, 64 cl, 51 throws runs longer than 40 th. ___ [ daily7b III: 64 ] good yield

7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #learningSiteswaps, #ThinkAs, #mentec, 5 balls, 175 minutes

Overall mostly flabby form today, exept for some better chunks when a raincloud, wind and temperature freshened up the somewhat airless muggy weather. Also sore nudging lumbal area those last days. So mostly "work, holding on", hoping on good phases and return of good form, rather than fun today.
5b 56752 - 30 min. Upto into 9th side, 8 sides clean; maybe few more over 8 s in longer uncounted runs.
7b casc - 103 min. 45, 51 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 51 ]
Preventively stopped that stint on a pull in the shoulder and did some ..
more 5b 56752 - 17 min. Upto 8 sides again.
5b 75751 - 13 min. #learningSiteswaps #mentec #ThinkAs - like for 753, also now did two same-hand high 7 throws intending to create a gap ( maintaining ground-state for any other all regular throws ), then use that gap for that 15 still from same hand. That way, got once the sequence fro to cascade and clean collect; first or second time since trying this, many `almosts´ preceding, so glad I got this `landmarked´. Once 757515 from cascade to instant clean collect.
5b cascade - 12 min. Just killed some time left, intending without effort, but didn't get over 135 throws trying a longer run.

7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #StagesOfLearning, #learningSiteswaps, #enduswap, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, 5 heavy balls, 203 minutes

5b 56752 - 38 min.   6-7-8 sides. One 9th, one 12th side (both to collapse).   Today, had a track of what exactly every run fails on in the end -
  o too low 7,
  o too much spread, unclean aiming,
  o collisions, mostly 6 onto previous 5,
  o my usual drift into bodyturn towards weakhandside.
#SoL #learningSiteswaps #enduswap - So, alas, no major distinct flaw in particular to work and put special attention on, but well spread over all issues that happen in unstable pattern, not utterly comfortably snapped in, no full control over pattern, timing, heights, thrusts, an' everything. Guess, I'll have to work these off one by one, or better: find an issue that covers most these problems in one; e.g. constantly aiming every single ball well on the right height (like you do when learning sth new), or better to its right spot in the air (unlike with cascade where all throws are alike), is a candidate for that (?); or tune and perfection the `rhythm's melody´, get the rhythm to the point (?); or - in that same sense - short controlled runs in hunt for swiftest pattern (higher? lower? how wristy or controlled by forearms too? .. ) (?); or slave better to pattern's geometry (??); ..
  There might also be an issue, I haven't noticed at all or enough accounted for .. maybe my weakhand's asymmetry  ( that I always took as is, which works fine so far for e.g. also cascade endurance and e.g. also few ball stuff )  .. maybe it shows up notably more and hinders more in complex s'swaps.
  A juggling pattern, including hand's motion and brain's work, just has so many properties to be accounted for.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 5 min.   (just warmup on weight for 5b 200g)
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   40, 77, 113 wristy 6-high.   279 cl 5-high.
9b flashing - 15 min.   Two times 7 gathers.          
7b casc - 140 min.   45, 53, [short snack break, 10'], 51 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]

7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, #otu, #ThinkAs, #learningSiteswaps, 5 ball splits variations, 5 balls, 235 minutes

5b splits oh xhd - 8 min. (from launch) A mess. I caught the one or other ball without uncrossing my hands. Maybe one duplex thrown to collect. Several attempts on the second throw to ultimatelol collapse. Want to try to get a few throws again sometimes.
5b °753° - 17 min. The only (but well matching) related thing I've done before is 3b-531 [ #otu ]. #learningSiteswaps - I wasn't sure it was valid and what throw would be next after throwing that sequence. After a few puzzling attempts, I figured out the 7 makes a gap, and the 3 closes it again, so it must be "back to cascade". #ThinkAs - Thinking it like that ( "one gap in mind at release of 7, then focus on closing that gap with the 3" - and: only two other-than-5-throws from same hand ) made me get 55555..75355 twice to a collect and several `almosts´ back to cascade.
9b flashing - 70 min. Only three times 7 gathers (one of which 8 g in reach). One 8 g.
7b casc - 135 min. [ daily7b II: 45 ]
5b fastest - 5 min.
