Notes:

I feel like I’m still doing pretty well, but I seem to get tired more quickly than before. I think that by the time I get back from class, my legs are already kinda drained, and playing DDR just drains’ em more. Still, I played for about an hour today.

I broke some records, but I didn’t get any AAs. Also, my weight is going down again. Now it’s at 176.2, so I’m only 1.2 pounds from my goal. Yeah!

Notes:

Today I forgot to wear my leg weights to class. My legs felt really light! It was kind of weird walking around without them, since I had gotten so used to wearing them.

Anyway, when I got back and started playing DDR I think I did better than usual. At least, I was in the beginning. I still got tired kind of quickly though. Regardless, I’ll keep up with the weights and I bet that they’ll be less and less of a hassle as my legs get used to them.

Notes:

Today I played for an hour, and afterwards, my legs feel like jelly. Maybe I shouldn’t have taken the stairs today… Actually, it’s probably a good sign that my legs are getting a workout. But it still affects my performance, and that kind of bugs me.

Hopefully my legs will adjust, so I won’t get tired so quickly.

Notes:

Today I got felt pretty good. I think I’m getting used to wearing those ankle weights now. I almost don’t don’t notice I’m wearing them anymore.

In game news, I haven’t unlocked any new DDR Strike songs, but that’s okay because I’m still working on the ones I have. Doll is pretty hard on challenge mode, and so is “Love is Orange.” Those’ll keep me busy for a while.

Notes:

Today I started okay but got tired fast. I think it probably has to do with the increased temperature in my house: around 75 F. Or it might also just be that I need another day off. In other news, the crossovers are proceeding well, but it seems like they’re not always appropriate. Sometimes I’ll do a crossover and then get stuck with no feet in the vicinity of the next arrow. Oh well, maybe I just need to practice em more.
