As predicted in WPR 40, my girlfriend was a highly disruptive influence last week, so I only managed about 13 hours. This week will be largely about getting a few repertoire tweaks in some sort of working order in time for the Major Open which starts next week. Hic naufragii (yes, I know that’s wrong):
Monday: 30 minutes CT-Art 4.0, 30 minutes opening work
Tuesday: 2 hours 25 minutes (car journey) opening work
Wednesday: 1 hour lesson with GM Damian Lemos
Friday: 3 hours playing, analysing and discussing ways to train with an old friend from junior tournaments
Saturday/Sunday: A considerable amount of time reading about and thinking about the optimal way to train. I’ll guess at 6 hours.
As can be seen above, I’m currently having a minor crisis about how to train, but I intend to set this aside, at least to an extent, until after my two upcoming tournaments (which can be seen on the calendar page).
