What went well?

  • I am back to mostly playing 30-minute games. I played a couple 10-minute rapid games on Lichess, as I’m trying to get an established rating there but it is still provisional.
  • Like last week, I am keeping up with all my Chessable work, both the openings and tactics. My streak is currently over 250 days. I’m not really worried about my streak, and I know this summer I will break that streak when I will be without internet for a week.

What could have gone better?

  • It was a busy week so I do not feel like I have been studying as much. There were a few days with family visiting, which made it hard to study or play at all. Family is a priority, so I’m not upset about putting family before chess. I just want to get into a routine.

What will I try next?

  • I am planning to start exercising more and study chess while I’m riding an exercise bike.
