I just finished circle 6 of the first 1355 problems from the CD intensive course tactics by George Renko.
I have decided to postpone circle 7 a few weeks, because right now I remember almost all the moves of the problems. And just memorizing the moves without knowing what you are actually doing makes no sense.
Tomorrow I start with circle 1 of the next 1183 problems of Renko's CD.
Because I feel the training is working I don't feel the need to leave the saddle.
Besides, I trained the last 3 years so I'm pretty used to it.
I don't like watching television, I have no kids, my wife plays chess too and everyone already think I'm nuts so that's no big deal.
