# 9 balls, 7 balls, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, 3 heavy balls, #peripheral, 1 ball, #blind, 3 balls, 3 ball tricks, #ThinkAs, 1 club, 350 minutes

#peripheral

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 )




( on river's meadow )
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - ~15 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - ~5 min.
9b flashing - ~24 min. ___ One 8 gathers, several almosts. One 7 c + 2 (full-hands-)touches in the rhythm.

#peripheral

argentina : iceland

ball spinning - 2 mins - ___ impossible - need to watch the ball.
1b bbb, or 3b pinball style - 4 mins - ___ pinball: not my thing, balls won't roll. leaning foreward is awkward juggling in an uncomfortable tensed position (esp. shoulders). ___ touches: tried 1b and touches at apex only, which worked well; even leaned back now to have the arms hanging more and the balls touch more against my back and that also worked well. still not really fun. ( no\maybe )
1b catching bbb , rev st , fx , rev bx - 54 mins - ___ routine: rev st -- fx -- a.s.o. weakhd much worse. upto four throws. did without aiming at first. whd still bad (at aiming, at catching, at knowing where the ball lands). makes sense to start a stint with whd only shoulderthrows for calibration. .. it's the weakhand's rev shouldethrows that are worst. fx only went well (always both hands involved), over 10 catches. also rev bx. ___ better now without whd rev st. ___ did another few bbb (throws and catch), shoulder is better trained now from those few minutes; and alternating them with front throws is also an option. ___ #exercise: bend foreward, then do with hanging arms, hands pointing inward to excise with same handholding, but looking. ___ stuck to frontcrosses now, that seem easiest so far, and got upto 16 catches in a row and a rhythm. soon time for this with one more ball. __ great practise, nice fast improvement (well, 1b), increases general bodyawareness in the blind zone behind the back. ( ok )


(on river's meadow)
5b casc varied - ~10 min.
9b flashing - ~33 min. ___ 12, 11, 11 throws, 8 gathers, 12, 11 throws.

#peripheral

peru : denmark

3b box - 7 mins - not used to synch, did 3s instead 1s. better when I focussed on aiming the columns nicely straight up. got it fluent briefly, like 12 throws (6 synch pairs), so felt, like this could be very easy, once the moves will be burnt into the brain. .. didn't feel like learning sth new right now, tho, and couldn't really fully focus on soccer. ( maybe )
3b-441 - 65 mins - notably better with asynch 1s and4s, stuck to this for a while; not all stable or fluent, but can go into collects rather than dropping a lot. around 12 to 24 throws, improving. .. .. .. thinking it 4 | 14 now [typing while practising], kind 'a (in a three beat, but) in two movements. #ThinkAs .. .. .. got aware of its alternating pistons' optics now, but orienting on that on the long run takes focus off from getting the Ones well and is therefore somewhat puzzling too. .. .. .. could just do and count now, got upto 36 c cl. ( ok )


(on sport's parking)
5b casc varied - ~6 min.
7b casc - ~54 min. ___ 54, 52, 42, 43 cl throws' runs longer than 40 t. ___ [ daily7b III: 54 ]

First time practicing in ages. Some tricks were a bit rusty (eg 97531, 7) but overall it went well.

Working on 5b sequence.

Got my cleanest 9b flash attempt ever. 8/9

Clean 5 up 360 at the end on the first attempt. Couldn’t do it again though.
