For another week, I neglected my ambitious training regimen. I did enough tactics exercises to satisfy my self-imposed requirement of a minimum of fifty, and otherwise played a bit too much online blitz.

1647 puzzles: 12890/16470 points 78%
last 10 puzzles: 79/100 79%
Through two sessions, I attempted 67 problems on Chess Tempo.
Problems Done: 1262 (Correct: 710 Failed: 552)
Percentage correct: 56.26%
