Notes:

Today I played for about an hour trying to unlock more songs in the dance master mode. I actually got through a lot. I unlocked Doll, so I’m pretty happy about that. It’s one of the more “famous” songs in the game, I guess. On heavy I can get an A on it, and in challenge mode (the first try), I got a B.

The dance master mode is challenging enough now for me to enjoy it. Before it was way too easy, but now I’m actually going through more than once trying to pass the songs. There was one mode where the arrows weren’t set in a straight line. That was weird.

I’ll keep playing DDR Strike to try and unlock more songs. The current songlist I have now is pretty good, though.

Notes:

So yesterday I got back from my trip. I decided that I’d try and make up for not exercising by doing extra today. I played for about 2 hours. Now, it should be noted that half of the time I was playing normal difficulty songs, and the other half were heavy mode. I unlocked a bunch of songs in the dance master mode.

Unforunately, now the dance master mode is really hard, so I guess I’ll have to practice to keep progressing.

As far as my muscles go, I felt a bit winded, but my legs were really fresh, and they didn’t get tired at all. Hopefully my endurance will come back soon!

Notes:

Today I played more DDR Strike. I’m still learning the songs, but I think I did okay. I like “Love is Orange” and “Everyday at the Bus Stop.” They’re pretty cool songs. “Doll” is pretty cool too, but I haven’t unlocked it yet.

Today will be my last update for a while, as I’m heading out of town until Sunday. I guess I’ll have to find an alternate method of exercise til then.

Notes:

Today I played half of the time in dance master mode, and the other half in normal mode. The dance master songs are still beginner to light mode, so I got bored pretty fast. I did unlock some songs though.

In the normal mode, I played most songs on heavy mode. It felt a lot more difficult since I didn’t know how many of the songs went. Still, I did get a AA on one the first time through!

Notes:

Today I played DDR Strike and tried tried unlocking some songs. I played the normal DDR mode for about 20 minutes, then I went into the mission mode for about 30 minutes. I’m still on the really easy missions, so it wasn’t that hard of a workout.

Hopefully I’ll get to the harder missions that actually make me break a sweat…
