7b_wizard

#ballproperties, 7 balls, #endupatt, 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 7 propmix, 266 minutes

cold, 10°C, wet, aaand windy, made me stay home and do indoors. took a coupl'ye hours to arrange the spot, broom, clean a carpet, sort things.
Had no plan, but to do a lot of 7b. Started off with my normal-size, 6.3 cm diam', beanbags "Bs", selfsewn last winter
40' - 5Bs 7hi - #ballproperties bigger than MMX1 -> more collisions. less grippy artificial velvety fabric -> slips. 212 t at last.
35' - 7Bs - #ballproperties .. and somewhat heavier -> strenuous. better aiming, not sure why, guess, it's the size, thus greater contact-area at sustain and release. Got my ≥45 with 54 t(hrows).
MMX again, now.
70' - 7b - 53, 60 cl, 55, 47, 45, .. 5' - 6b1r here ≤6 g, .. 68 narrow, if I can manage, spares width's- and scoop-energy, and dwelltime with smaller handmovement. #endupatt
./. 28' break.
35' - 5b tricks - a bit each: ..
, , , , , , , , - °753° - once °7535° by weakhand caught clean,
, , , , , , , , - °7772615° - once °777261555° or so caught clean,
, , , , , , , , - °34567° - upto at last 2 rounds clean, 3 rds thrown,
, , , , , , , , - RO (reachovers) - ii cl,
, , , , , , , , - elcurls - I don't easily get them with 3b, .. tried anyway, .. not even time to initialize. somehow, twice, did at least the curl plus handback-throw into (ignoring) the incoming ball dropping,
, , , , , , , , - roll-to-elcrook-and-flick ERF - a good deal to instant catch & collect, not "btc", back to cascade.
15' - 5b 7hi - 232.
62' - 7b - 54, 72, 49, 72. [ daily7b IV: 72 ]
9' - 6b1r - ( I really wanna know ! :-) 6 c cl. 12 t 11 c, [ edit: ] 7 c cl. 14 t 13 c, [ end edit ] one last balldrop.

Help, Orin, please, if you read this! .. In this logentry form, right now while typing, I seem to have used too many hashtags for "Tags", tricks andor props. The list of clickable tags stops at ".., 7 propmix, 7b", omitting all my tags thereafter (8b, 9b, balancing). I think, that paragraph just needs more lines or space. It would really help to have them all available again as else I have to type them every time. Thx ahead a ton! :o)

Flash. Got it on the first attempt! Then failed a lot, but got it two more times. The first one was the best, though.

6 catches. Got it 2-3 times, but the catches weren't very clean. I mean, catching the last club in a trap is fine, but it might indicate that my throws weren't very good. (I know that they aren't... Well, maybe some day...)

early in between of which, 4b1rubber-ring, a couple of tries. got 2 rounds, 3 ring-throws caught clean, which I'm glad aboit, as earlier I've been dropping all casual tries. #ftr #technique I think, the 'trick, clue, knack' of rings, for beginners, is to handle, especially: catch them by their upper part. { yeh, how else, anyway }

9 balls flashing, 7 balls, #season, #structuredPractise, #whatIwant, 3 heavy balls, 5 balls, 5 ball tricks, 287 minutes

38' - 3b 200g.
17' - 5b 9hi - 89, 75, 111 t.
I've been putting priority on 9b over 7b whenever the conditions and my fitness were very good - but now,the better I become, less the conditions need to be really very good, but so-so okay still can give good 9b flashing practise; so lately I've been pretty much ne-glec-ting 7b?! I believe, that I'm nearer to just once getting like 11, 12, maybe more catches clean w/ 9b, or let it be 17 throws into 6 or 7 balls collected before first drop ( 14 or 15 catches ), .. nearer to such a result w/ 9b, rather than mastering, seizing very good ('full') control over the 7b cascade soas to be able to do 7b tricks, which will not stop with one result, but always go on. So I want to put an end to doing 9 balls thAT much. [ °gee° .. i hope this makes sense to read lol ]
130' - 9b - xv 8 g. x 11, i 12, i 14 t.
42' - 7b - 50, 49.
On the other hand, I'm doing relatively well w/ 7b also with less time, in shorter stints; .. but below 60 minutes just really feels wrong.
./. 27' break.
4' - 5b - all up 180° - 0 rt cl. i btc. 10 t to collapse.
11' - 5b 7hi - only 177.
~45' - 7b - 'strange attractor' at 39/40 throws.46, 48. [ daily7b IV: 50 ]
