Notes:

Today I was feeling good, but I got tired after only 30 minutes. I did get some pretty good scores, though. My feet still feel a little sluggish on the Cobalt Flux, so I need to work on that. Otherwise, the pad still seems better than a soft one. I bet I could do really good if I switched, but I’d rather stick with the Cobalt Flux.

Notes:

It seems like I’m getting more and more used to the Cobalt Flux. I’m not getting as tired as I got when I was just starting to use it too, so I think my muscles have adapted.

Notable Scores: None!

Notes:

Though I didn’t do too well in the score category, it seems apparent to me that the missed steps are killing me. Otherwise, I’d probably have quite a few AAs. Today I felt more used to the Cobalt Flux, so I guess It’ll eventually become second nature. Maybe.

Notes:

I have the feeling that a lot of my brain power is being used to figure out how to step correctly on the cobalt flux, and not to look at the upcoming steps. I’m still getting used to it, and stepping isn’t coming quite naturally yet, but I’m doing better. I’d say a few more days playing ddr, and I’ll totally be used to the Cobalt Flux.

Notes:

I think I’m getting more used to the pad as I play on it. I think the main problem I’m having is that my steps aren’t as accurate as they need to be, and the soft pad that I had before was more lenient.

I mean accurate as in where my foot hits, because I’m actually getting more perfects than I was before. I’m also getting a lot of boos…
