Circles 2

I've been trying to get myself to log on to fics but somehow I can't pull it off. Interesting part is that it feels as repulsive as studying for an exam - I was never able to do that either...
Circles are also in some sort of stagnation stage, it just feels too much work at the moment, -who would have guessed...
I'm thinking of taking a little break from circles and just practicing on cts, maybe I can force myself back to circles after a while...

Circles 1

I've practiced with ct-art about a week now and so far" the circles" have been as promised, -maybe a bit more boring than I originally thought...
My "status" at the moment:
ct-art lev1 x5, lev2 x3,
with troyis I'm stuck on lev 25 and Fritz attack training average is 32.

I'm thinking that I should add some playing elements to this training regime so I'm going to start playing at fics again. Couple of 3min games a day should be just fine.
So far, So good... So what!

First post

I've got some spare time so I decided to work through this "circle-thingy" and hopefully get something out of it. I'm going to use Ct-art for the circles and roll with it 7 times. As for the solving process I'm thinking of using my "secret method" of looking up the answer if I can't solve the position in 1 minute, -this because my attention span is very short and the problems are a bit hard for me even with answers in hand...
I don't really understand the use of those other De la Maza exercises (microdrills etc etc) so I'll replace them with intensive use of "attack training" in Fritz and 15min of "Troyis" on a daily basis.

Well, this seems to be quite enough for this test/first post so I wish myself good luck and off I go;-)
