# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 192 minutes

5b casc varied - ~13 min.
9b flashing - ~47 min. ___ Five times 8 gathers, two of which in a row. With rethrows: 12 into 7 gathers, 11, 13 throws.
7b casc - ~132 min. ___ 61, 45, 43, 44, 51, 43, 41 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ( overall too few over 40, and too few over 50 ) Again a (too short) very good phase with a few gorgoeous feelgood runs. Issues: throwing well scooping ´´under´´ last ball ( knowing, feeling where it flies, its angle, rather than seeing or spotting it ), balancing the pattern well near me, almost, as due to some parallaxe it always seems, above myself. ___ [ daily7b III: 61 ]

# 7 balls, #improvement, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 193 minutes

5b casc varied - ~15 min. __ again incl. hi-lo and wide\\narrow - pulsing exercises.
9b flashing - ~20 min. ___ Three times 8 gathers (two of which in a row).
7b casc - ~158 min. ___ 42, 43, 55, 43, 47, 43, 56, 56 ( nearly a copy of the one shortly before, fighting past four-five sets of eight throws, and forcing a few last throws for result, whilst it had slowly drifted me turn some to my lefthand side ), 41 cl, 43 cl, 41, 51 throws' runs longer than 40 t. One-two gorgeous early runs doing well, but lost connection a bit (to the pattern, its top, the right swift ado). So, good, okay practise, but once again these days not yet where I've been formerly, finetuning on nice running patterns getting very long runs and a lot over 60. Got a nice low about two periods run maybe a handwidth or two above head-height. ___ [ daily7b III: 56 ]

5b casc varied - ~10 min. ___ 9-high. slowly turn all around. pulse hi-lo. fastest.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 175 minutes

5b casc varied - ~10 min.
9b flashing - ~20 min. ___ Only 8 gathers almost about twice, but was on the right way, saw the pattern, but didn't want to use up 7b time and just have stayed tuned to 9b a bit.

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

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!)
7b casc - ~103 min. ___ 59, 46, 41, 41, 44 throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 59 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, 195 minutes

5b casc varied - ~7 min. Did that pulsing hi-lo; went okay, not too challenging.
9b flashing - ~30 min. ___ Four times 8 gathers. One or other `valid´ 9b pattern. No rethrows.
7b casc - ~158 min. ___ Went over (35, 35), 45, (39), 41, (37), then about amidst the stint a good phase with 61, 51, 51 throws' longest runs ( after that lost the pattern, the right ado for a long rest of the stint with max 35-37 t again ). Also here did pulsing hi-lo and got it twice pulled down and lifted back up again. ___ [ daily7b III: 61 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 balls, #structuredPractise, 185 minutes

5b casc varied - ~10 min. ___ Current standard here is ..
- Trying 9-high as long as would go.
- Upto b-high or more a few throws.
- Slowly turn once or twice around, or - when I can't do full turns through the bright sun - half turns and back and again.
- Fastest.
9b flashing - ~30 min. ___ Not over 7 gathers.
7b casc - ~145 min. ___ 43, 41, 43, 41 throws runs longer than 40 t. Varying high patterns, very low patterns, going to early collect, wasn't of use, didn't get it better. Hardly a good practising rhythm. Badly connected to pattern's top. Struggled to get over 35 throws' hurdle a lot. ___ [ daily7b III: 43 ]
Overall unfresh, a bad unfruitful practise day. Best thing today was the idea to exercise pulling the pattern down, if not with 7 balls where I first need a running pattern for that, then at least at warmup with 5 balls pulsing hi-lo again ( like I used to do ) [ #structuredPractise ].

9b flashing - ~45 min. ___ Three times 8 gathers. Two or three times upto around 3 rethrows (~12 t). A 9 c in reach ( six caught safe and three well timed and aligned balls spotted well in time ), but for the catching (ended 6 g).
7b casc - ~145 min. ___ 45, 43, 51, 69, 66, 47 throws runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 69 ]
