# 3b, 4b, 5b, 6b, 7b, 65 minutes

warm-up. then ususal +1b.

3b: a little of synch shower both sides. left hand getting better.

4b: went again for the 4in1hand. first attempt with L hand made a flash!
4 throws, 4 gathers. just beautifull. then runs of 2 and 3 with both hands.
4inRmax: 3
4inLmax: 4

5b: just a few runs collecting at 5, 10, 25 and 50.

6b: several flashes. an 8. moved to 7b.
6bmax: 8

7b: first run, very neat, so close to a flash.
(it actually counted as a 2-catch, because the 3rd ball fell over, but i did catch the other 6)
some more, not so great attempts. and had to stop.
7bmax: 5

not bad. the L hand 4in1 was awesome. kindda got a stiff neck by the middle of the session, so the rest was not so nice and easy... but i managed to stay playing for a bit.

# 3b, 4b, 5b, 6b, 7b, 65 minutes

warm-up. then +1b.

usual beginning with 1b and 2b chase.

3b: a little of synch shower. changing sides. nice.

4b: several minutes of really focused training on collecting 4b in one hand for the 7b.
kindda made a breakthrough here, found a new, slightly different, way to catch the first 3 balls that makes it easier to collect the 4th.

5b: made my first 5b asynch shower flash! so nice! :D
tried for a while with both hands, getting 3 and 4 out of 5. then the 5/5. felt sooo good.

6b: several flashes. then 12-catch-collect-all qualifying run attempts.
after a few 6 and 8´s I've got it!

7b: nice flash attempts. some 4 and 5´s. nice qualify attempts. some 5 and 6. a 10.
7bmax: 10

not a bad day. some new stuff like the 5b shower :) and moving forward, slowly but forward, with the 7b

# 4b, 5b, 6b, 76 minutes

warm-up then +1b.

1b: 10x every throw. from 1 to 9. (10x each hand for even numbers)

2b: 2b chase with 7 throws. 606000. 2/4 balls of the sprung cascade.
also 2/4 balls of 7531. like 31, 53, 75.

3b: 7070700 and collect. 606060 both hands. 3b chase 7 throws.

4b: 7070707 and collect. 7531.
4 asynch fountain switch to synch by ([6x4],[6x4]) and back with ([6x4x],[53]) *nice!*

(4^8)22[22][1x1x]([6x4],[6x4])(0,0)((4,4)^4)(2,2)([6x4x],[53])04

5b: a few runs of cascade. aiming to a number of catches and collecting.
runs of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 125 (dropped), etc.
5bmax: 125

6b: several flashes. good progress. nice fountain runs. looking for 12 catches and collect.
once i gathered them all but one of the first balls slipped. i'm not counting that...
have to focus on fixing this problem:
the 3rd throw of each hand goes across (like a 6x) ruining all chance to keep playing.

6bmax: 11

good session. stopped before getting to the 7b. but i was getting tired, and the last few runs, after that allmost-qualifying-6b-run, were increasingly bad and started to lose my temper... he.. so, better stop for now.

# 3b, 4b, 5b, 6b, 7b, 75 minutes

warm-up. then +1b.

trying a lot of synch stuff today. feel like I've discovered a whole new world inthere.

3b: tried 3b synch shower (4x,2x) both sides. some variatons too. throw all the balls in 6x, like a 4b sync shower flash you can say. also can be used to change sides. nice.

4b: a few runs of 7531. a lot of trying to collect the 4 balls in one hand, good practice for 7b.

5b: a few runs.

6b: a few good flashes. tried for some time to make a qualifying run collecting them all. close. made it to 11.
also tried for the very first time the 6b synch fountain! made a flash at 3rd attempt.
6bmax: 11

7b: some nice flash attempts of 5 and 6 gathers. also here, following orinoco's advice, went for the "collect-all" qualifying run, made it to 10. not bad :)
7bmax: 10

good day. gonna have to dig deeper into the synch stuff. I've been playing with the jugglinglab and ladder diagrams, inventing a lot of patterns. some of them combining synch and asynch throws in a way i've havn't seen before... can't actually juggle them yet, haha, but i'll try.

# 4b, 5b, 6b, 45 minutes

warm-up. then +1b.

kindda tired today. didn't make a long session.

4b: nice progress with the 7531. several times made two whole rounds, 8 catches.

5b: wow! tried the 97531. first tried flashing it, it took shape in like three runs. still can't catch well enough to make it run.
I really like the visual effect of this trick since i saw a video of.. i think it was anthony gatto, doing it so perfectly.

6b: couple of runs. some flashes. felt tired and stoped...
6bmax: 6

# 4b, 5b, 40 minutes

warm-up, then +1b.

4b:kept playing with the sprung cascade. i'm thinking the first throws are the hardest, once i'm pass them i'll be making long runs, i guess.
5b: a few cascade runs. just to keep it there. and i had to leave.

had to leave, to do stuff... short session today.

# 5b, 6b, 7b, 100 minutes

warm-up, then 1b, 2b, 3b, 7b, 6b, 5b.

fooled around with two siteswaps that i have on my head this days: 7531 and (6x,2x)* called the sprung cascade.
both seem to be close, but i've got my focus on the 7b (and the 6b now), so it'll have to wait.

7b: no flash today. only caught 5/7 a few times. but good 7b cascade runs of 4,5 & 6 catches. 7 twice. once a 9! :D
7bmax: 9
6b: took forever to get the flash today. after the first came a few more. then fountain with nice runs of 8, 10 and 11 catches. couldn't qualify just yet, but it's there... it's there...
6bmax: 11
5b: haven't juggled 5b all week... tried a few runs, but was tired. longest run was 50 catches.
5bmax: 50
