Notes:

Today was a quickie. I felt somewhat tired this time too. Maybe it’s because I did the workout right after eating. All that rice and tofu flying around in my stomache probably complicated things. Anyway, Today I had a lot of stuff to do, so I took it a little easy. I’ll try to go for longer next time.

Notes:

Today I felt like I worked a lot harder than usual. The songs were the same, but they just seemed like they took more energy to play. I think my pad was kind of sticking to my feet too. Anyway, I only did about 35 minutes again today. The workout mode calorie counter said I did about 500 calories today! I don’t really believe it though.

Notes:

So today is another weight milestone! At least, mentally it is. I reached 179.8lb. This is only .2 less than my previous all time low, but now I can say I’m in the 170s!

This workout was pretty average, minus the many AAs I got. Overall, I think it was a more concentrated workout, so don’t let the low amount of time fool you.

Notes:

So today I only played for about 35 minutes or so. Not that I couldn’t have played for longer, but I think it would be better to take it easy now and then. I got a few new records (mostly on songs I haven’t played in a while) too.

I drank a lot of water before playing, so I think that helped me avoid getting cramps. My ankles were starting to hurt at the very beginning, but once I got warmed up I was fine.

Tsugaru is a fun song. I used to get tripped up on it, but one day it just clicked. It’s a lot easier if you know the trick, but you sort of have to learn it yourself. Now all I have to do is go to the arcade and show off… or not.

Notes:
Today I felt a little more tired than yesterday. Half of my workout was just playing random songs, and then the other half was practicing songs that I need work on, mainly The Cube and Rhythm and Police. I finally got that last part down in The Cube, but now the first half is difficult… Oh well. I’ll just keep practicing and see if I can AA it eventually.
