So yesterday - even though I'm not through yet with trying everything in question out - already gave, that there's a lot of tricks, I can do looking through the pattern, but not anytime right away ( then not "watching", but "staring at" and missing the soccer game with full focus on the pattern needed ).
- okay: ___ .. 3b casc. .. 2b-01414 .. 3b freestyle, fastest, reverse-mix, (single) back of hand, (single) claws, (single) penguins, (single) backcrosses ( short spotting required so far ) .. 3b 4 2=ELCURL 3 .. 3b elcrook stalls ( 3_THROW_INTO_STALL 3 3 3_WITH\WHILE_2nd_BALL_STALLED 3_TAKE_STALL_REACHOVER_INTO_COLUMN_THERE ).
- difficult \unclear yet: ___ .. 3b inv box ( rather: yes, with some practise ) .. 5b casc low ( rather not ).
- refuted: ___ .. 3c casc (spins need constant spotting)
france : australia
contact butterflies - 10 mins - ugly, but valid and okay. bad with weakhand.
contact on arm to arm horizontal - 1 mins - can get it with chest helping, but still awkward, droppy anyway, very difficult anything involving weakhand. ( So: no )
1c flourishes - 5 mins - better with full focus, got a few "over index + thumb" rolls, mostly dropping, arm was in the way for rolls over handback. ( no )
Total practice time: 350 minutes

( cf. https://www.jugglingedge.com/forum.php?ThreadID=3301 : )
3b casc - 21 mins - ___ 13 drops :o( one forced collect. longest runs upto 4½ mins. ___ balls crossing the monitor aren't a problem, as, first, they're fast, second, balls are too near to cover both eyes' view. ___ never intended any reverse throws, but my hands did reverse bail outs ``all by themselves´´; also saved a few collisions back to pattern. __ seemed to run best when fully focussed on the game (ugly game, many fouls), felt like walking then.___ when my wades got tensed from standing straight, bent my knees a bit or swayed from one foot to the other.
overall a good exercise, .. chills, reveals basic flaws (it was weakhand mostly failed).

~5' - flowy 423 - ( cf. corr. thread )
183' - 5b rev casc - 115 (@ 30'), 119 (@ 50'), 125, 112, 119, 111, 163, 114, 141, 123, 114, 131, 166, 111, 130, 119, throws runs longer than 110 throws. [ 5b reverse cascade progress: 166 ]

Radar looked like rain would stop soon, but didn't, so i stood under a small roofed area doing 3b.
3b cascade - ~20 min. Had for a while been wanting to do this: find out exactly when the c a t c h e s happen: Like when pulling on the one end of a rope hanging with both ends over a branch, in order to uplift sth tied to its other end, I focussed on the downward movement of the catches imagining I'd be doing the other hand's upward throwing movement with that catch movement of catchhand. In other words: Doing / thinking the throw by the countermovement of the opposite catching hand. It seemed like the / my throws - in the yet normal pattern - were a bit earlier than the catches, so it felt like for doing as described above, throwhand had to shortly wait, delay a few millisecs (until catchhand got its ball to pull down). Or else - in a higher, slower pattern - I had to catch later for also the throw in question to be later. But I might be completely wrong, as it's unusual and difficult to focus on the catchmovement + other hand's throw at the same time. I did get that clear feeling / impression of ``pulling´´ the throws up with the opposite catch though. Interesting tweaks of dwelltime and I'm not through with finding out exactly what goes on there and how to use it.
Tried blind a bit, but got too many drops.
3b 52413 - ~20 min. (4 thrown reachover, so it looks like ongoing cascade) went well in spite of a few drops.
A few minutes of 3b "fastest", rev--rev--normal--normal.
5b endure - ~20 min. 219, 373 throws longest runs.
7b casc - ~8 min. ( rain had stopped, but it was darkish and didn't feel warmed up well ) A hearty 23 throws run with good focus and rolling well for those two periods was best I could get from scratch. ( rest were bad launches and blunders ) [ daily7b II: 23 ]

Too rainy, overcast, grayish-darkish, cold, windy outdoors. [ daily7b II: 0 ]
12' - 3b elroll-takes - got upto five or six in a row in a two-count. It's not as presumed yesterday a 423 variation, but indeed maintaining crossing throws(?), the cascade(?), a ``three-beat-all´´(?), (but it's unclear how to fit that roller into s'swap notation).
1' - 3b 524RO13 - fluent (but sometimes a few back to cascade throws in between).
153' - 5b rev casc - started with short controlled runs to find into an endurable pattern - 73 (12'), 99 cl (30'), 109 (60'), 93 cl, 89, 79 cl, 71, [ #mentec #focus #endupatt #ThinkAs ] tried throwing over the whole pattern into the middle upto here, but from now on aiming along the steep sides of an imagined trapezium (with shared flightpoint very high up there somewhere), thus throwing angles with portionned thrust in the first place, only then with secondary focus on right height, 77 cl, 83, 79 cl, 71, 90, 71 cl, 75, 74 throws longest runs.

5b casc varied - 10 min.
7b casc - 40 min. 51, 51 throws longest runs (next best was 45 two or three times, maybe once 47). [ daily7b II: 51 ]
3b casc varied: piroujoggling - 3 min. #inventions #exercises - run + keep turning - difficult, but got it with about no/one/two drops per lane.
Had no plan, just "juggle" (sth easy with few or no drops, sth fun). Started off with cascade, open for whatever would cross my mind .. it turned out:
15' - 3b backhandclaws ( between index and ringfinger on the back of the middlefinger ) - thrown back to pattern as reverse. Did them in a four-count (swaying out\\in) for about over 50 throws.
10' - 3b `elroll-takes´(? dunno how to call this) = cascade -- roll a caught ball to the wrist/forearm/el -- allthewhile catching and rethrowing next without dropping the still rolling one -- take the rolling ball with the other hand reaching over and throwing it as column, guess it's a 423-variation - could soon do half a dozen of them in a row in a six-count, two in a row in a four- or two-count. Speedy stuff using half-beats.
