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 ]

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 ]

5 ball tricks, #new, #PR, 140 minutes

55' - 5b single bx - 5 bx per run to clean collect. Then - out of nothing - 8/r + 9.th throw failed (=pr, never did that much).
15' - .. then ( #new - ) did harder variants: with weakhand, got one to collect. Very low, got two, to collect and back to cascade. And, faster count: .. this goes down to doing without going into higher slower pattern (as there is not the time to slowly pull pattern back down). That means doing the bx within one dwelltime e.g. by spotting a ball and getting prepared to do a hasted bx (catching sooner and catching next faster after it). Very hard. [edit:] stupid me, now strikes me, did that last thing from lower pattern as used to, while, if I don't go higher, I might aswell start it from high. Next time, then. [end edit]

60' - rev casc - 25, 31, 23, 55 (#PR, great run, rolled swiftly, snapped-in, just slight drift slowly turning me round; also didn't expect this at all), 27, 29, 23, 25 throws to drop(s) above 22.

10' - ½-tennis - (=rev--normal--normal)   bad, but got one run with 5 rev throws.
