5 ball tricks, 5prop mix, #StagesOfLearning, #new, 5 balls, 135 minutes

13' - 5b casc "easiest" / endure - 455 throws max.

2' - 5 prop mix, 4b1c - unto 13 rounds.

7' - 5 prop mix, 3b2c - 5 rounds to complete collapse.

13' - 5 prop mix, 2b3c (tinyclubs double spun) - °wow° .. surprised myself expecting to be blundering quarreling with two clubs in a hand at launch and at most flashing (which indeed was the case at first), but before long getting upto 2 rounds clean! .. and an attempt with seven or eight clubs thrown. Need to confirm it, reproduce, these next days and it'll be a notable step towards 5c indoors!? Glad, I ``dared´´ this! (as I did not feel ripe for it), .. #new (afai remember) #SoL

100' - 5b rev casc - 159, 159, 164 throws max above 120. ___ [ 5b reverse cascade progress: 164 ]

5b-34567 - ~15 min. #new ___ From launch upto into a third round to collapse, about 7-8 catches ( one round at least all caught and relaunched well for sure ((not easy to tell with late high throws and the lower throws passing those by)) ).

7 balls, 3 heavy balls, #otu, #new, #invention, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 253 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 78 min. [ #otu #new #invention ] - Got a nice all up + 90° (higher and faster in beat) - it's a 90°-degree flash (high throws): 33333..frontcross--column--frontcross--turn..33333 ( also ..column--frontcross--column--turn.. is possible, but can collide easier ((with both columns sharing airspace)) ).
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 8 min. 109 throws wristy 6-high. 225 th 5-high.
5b 56752 - 40 min. Two or three 9th sides, one each of which clean and an ugly full collect. One 11th side clean. Maybe 10th sides (? not sure - don't always count, but then do simply up in rhythm).
7b casc - 127 min. 43, 43, [break], 47 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 47 ]

7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #new, #StagesOfLearning, #conditions, 271 minutes

5b casc varied - 10 min.
5b fastest - 7 min.   Again, stuck at this. .. Usually I do this only a bit to nimble up wrists and fingers and racketing, speediness, without going for long runs.
5b all up 180° - 12 min.   Again, only close ``almosts´´. At a point, chose to not "do until" anymore, but go on in schedule.
5b tricks, s'swaps - 25 min.   single sequences with cascade in between ..
75751 - 5' - bad. nothing. just found that trying weakhand 7-s too made no sense so far.
8552 - 4' - Got two times two sequences plus attempt on third with cascade in between per run. (stronghand 8-s only)
7772615 - 8' - Once back to cascade, then clean collected. Two times once plus a second attempt per run into fail.
88522 - 8' - #new - got an early once the sequence back to cascade, then clean collected. Then couldn't confirm, but only got ``almosts´´. - #SoL Queer: something simple hides in that pattern that I couldn't easily seize .. you throw that 5 under the first 8, then you have two holds, to time an initial 5 over the last 8 to get back to cascade. Just "which hand? when exactly?" got me puzzled a bit.
  I think, then I did well to not even try 7733 and 95551
5b 56752 - 65 min.   Best runs were a 10th side clean, an 8th side clean, then two more 8th sides to collapse. A few 7th sides. And a good bunch of 6th sides half of which clean.
7b casc - 152 min.   63 cl, 47, 47, 52, 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]

#conditions - powdery soil on the plated cobbles acted like talkum, so had to rub-roll the balls clean on my shirt all the time.

7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #otu, #new, 7 balls splits, 228 minutes

5b casc varied - 10 min. incl. one impulsive fail on 75751, and one sequence of [ #otu #new ] 55555..8552..55555 to clean collect within like five attempts or so.
5b 56752 - 65 min. 6th, 7th cl and 8th sides.
7b splits - 15 min. 17 catches + 1 last drop on 9 duplex thrown.
7b casc - 128 min. 44 cl, 50 cl, 43, 43, 45, 52, 45 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 52 ]

7 balls, #new, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 195 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
5b 56752 - 25 min. Upto 6 rounds clean twice.
7b casc - 120 min. 45, 57, 43, 45, 46, 47, 53, 63, 63, 47 throws longest runs. [ daily7b II: 63 ]
7b fastest - 10 min. #new - casually done this before, especially when exhausted from forcing too much - now made it a stint on its own. It's a good speed \ fingers' nimbleness exercise in any case. Clean flashes head high (among at least just as many fails). ~11 throws slightly above head.
5b fastest - 5 min. One or two ~35-40 throws runs.

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

55' - 5b "easiest" \ endure - 427, 451, 861 (last run), throws longest runs.

20' - 5 mixed props, 4b1c - Upto 11 rounds.
          [ n.t.s.: ii 7 tod, 9 tod, ~10 tod, 11 tcl½, ]

..as this went well, dared some: ..

10' - 5 mixed props, 3b2c - #SoL, #new (tried it once before, but had fails) - Felt double fast at first, less than half the time left for focussing on spin-watch and spotting for catching. Then got a flash, a qualify, and three rounds in a row (all clean caught)!   Precious exercise for 5c, as there's consecutive tinyclub throws - quasi an `element´ of doing 5c.   Felt great and like there's hope to skip 2b3c and-or 1b4c.

90' - 5b rev casc - 67, 60, 65, 59 cl, throws longest runs. [ 5b reverse cascade progress: 67 ]

5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #technique, 5prop mix, #otu, #new, 165 minutes

40' - 5b "easiest" \ endure - 707 throws longest runs.   New way of doing, #technique - Instead of catching with fingers and throwing from there, even rolling off middle- and ringfinger at release, and scooping with wrist, right at start of stint, it struck me, I was rolling off the balls from ringfinger plus pinky!? So, sort of just the opposite way of how I partly do reverse cascade. Balls like moving horizontally inside the hand, instead from palm to fingertips as usual (when rolling, which is yet another way). I must have been doing like that before with 3b or 5b fast, but only now was really aware of it and I tried and did like that willingly, which worked and was very smooth. Also, there's no or less wrist-scoop, only a flick along hand's long axis when flicking up with ringfinger and pinky at release.

30' - 5 mixed props, 4b1c - An exeptional 10 rounds; rest upto 7 rounds.
          [ n.t.s.: 6 tcl, 7 tod½, 10 tod½, 6 tbd, 7 tod½, 7 tod, ]

8' - 5 mixed props, 3b + 1c (tiny) + 1b large - Upto 20+ catches to breakdown. 3 rounds clean collected. [ #otu, #new ]

85' - 5b rev casc - 51, 53, 67, 49, 57, 51, 49, 53, 53, 63 throws longest runs. [ 5b reverse cascade progress: 67 ]
