You ever have those days where there doesn’t seem to be enough coffee in the world to keep you on track?
Yeah, that’s pretty much been my week.
Not that it’s been all bad. We’re getting back on track after our unfortunate car break in incident. I haven’t let too many things slip. But my motivation is severely dragging. Hopefully, I can pep up this week, but I’m keeping my plans light just in case.
You can see last week’s goals here.
Anywho, welcome to another ROW80* check in. Let’s see how it’s been going:
Finished MN, though it’s going to need at least another reworking as it feels pretty rough still.
My sound is coming along. I kind of feel like Dr. Frankenstein standing over his monster and crying out “It lives!” (note: I’m picturing Gene Wilder’s Dr. F here 😉 ) One can know, intellectually, that solid practice makes good progress, but it’s pretty stinkin’ thrilling when it actually happens. Even if that progress is not all that monumental in the grand scheme of things.
I feel like I’m able to sink more into playing my instrument. Not only is that healing but it’s better for my playing. I guess having a stressful event like a break in, has some positive side effects, at least in this case.
Hit all my practice hours. No days off.
Continue to work on straight bowing and steady, relaxed hands.
Giving myself two optional days off this week, as that seems to relax me and keep my motivation up.
4/5 workouts this week, but I upped the intensity.
I’m planning 3, but aiming for 4 workouts. I’ll be bringing up the intensity more (my ankle’s getting stronger) while probably shortening the duration.
We played Monopoly (Legend of Zelda version). I learned that my family is a bunch of cutthroat, dirty capitalist sharks…me included. We had a great time. My only complaint is that Monopoly is such a looooooong game, especially with my people. Sheesh. Maybe this week we play Rock Paper Scissors or something.
It’s looking like the vote is for another game night. There’s also been a request for microwave molten lava cakes, so I’ll have to dig out the recipe.
