# 7 balls, 5 balls, #teaching, passing, contact, 305 minutes

5b casc varied - ~25 min. ___ incl. °753° where I got 555..753555 to clean collect, and fastest a while.
7b casc - ~268 min. ___ In spite of good arms again, kind'a full form, not a good yield, 41, 45, 55, 41, 45, 43, 45, 45, 42 throws' runs longer than 40 th, but got a few good runs feeding the top well and naturally well-aimed from wrists \fingers. ___ [ daily7b III: 55 ]

teaching 2 balls, 3 balls. passing(!?) - ~10 mins. ___ A group of four young adults, two guys, two girls, one of whom came up to me asking for me to show them how to. She did 2b shower, and I showed her, that cascade's crossing throws spare time (instead having to use both hands for shower), and I showed the throwcatch´´ movement, throwing inside up under a falling ball into catching the latter outside down in a hand's circling one single combined movement, but I couldn't check if she got along with it, as the other three came up now too; one guy also did 2b shower and I showed him (his presumed) 3b shower height and he tried starting with two balls in his strong hand showering, but started passing a One after the first shower ball up ( [52]1[52]5..collapse ) instead after the second shower ball up ( [52]2515..a.s.o. ). And already the next girl was meanwhile doing a steady confident 3b cascade, just a bit high and not bowy, but scooping way over into rather steep angle throws and a bit hazardously aimed. She brought up, passing were possible too, and she had done \tried that before, so we tried that, me trying to halfway find into her rhythm, but we didn't yet know when to pass the first ball from where to where lol, so I made up, I'd count down from 3..2.. to .. 1, then we'd throw straight to the partner's opposing hand, but it didn't work, it was a mess ( without mills, just a mess-mess ). She had even suggested to do 7 ball passing first, but I found that a level too hard and suggested the above exchanging´´ one ball each at 6b passing. It can very well be, that she'd have gotten it with another partner than me, but me not with any partner in the world .. I'm a flop at passing - too many dimensions too many it seems to me.

reverse elcurls - ~2 mins. - ___ starting from in the hand \in the palm in low position facing down (like claw). Now an upward (slight) throwing movement (without losing contact), but right after release rolling the inner forearm over the uprising ball unto near the elbow, there curling over to outer forearm and on the outer forearm rolling back to handback, then flick up from there. Got that once in a good dozen of mostly invalid´´ attempts \fails. Tricky, but feasible. [ #contact ] .. there's more queer contact things going on when somehow trying to save balls, like a ball rolling overmy forearm to the handback pointing to my neck, and from there rolling past my neck along the shoulderbelt onto the other upper arm into elbow-flick; or, similar ( not past my neck behind, but) with utterly angled forearm over handback, curling over save-arm's shoulder back on save-arm's upper arm to its elbow into possible flick or stall; all of which I could train intentionnally if I wanted to invest that time.

[ 5b reverse cascade progress: 0 (chartstuff) ]

# 3 balls, contact, Handstands, 5 balls, 180 minutes

really long session but a lot of improvement in my five ball pattern. along with a very solid run of body rolls with my contact ball. however i couldn't find a good rhythm with my 3 ball site swaps i had a few good runs of 441 and 531 but anything more than that and i was just fumbling about like a fish with one giant leg. handstand worked well for me today im walking about like a pro now however for only like a minute and i cant stop very well quite yet either.
