The Hunt for an Ideal Training Routine
The mission continues, as it always does, but at last I feel I that I may be beginning to do some things in the right, or at least a better, way. An example of a recent training day from my training diary follows. It basically reflects what I currently aim to achieve each day.
*CPT=Chess Position Trainer
20 mins - Opening Practice (scheduled recall of positions in CPT)
20 mins - Opening Theory (expanding and adding to repertoire)
30 mins - Tactics (warm up)
40 mins - Training Game (strategically themed)
50 mins - Training Game (strategically themed)
60 mins - Annotation (review games and note thoughs)
90 mins - Olympiad Coverage (observing the masters at work)
30 mins - Strategy (Find the Right Plan, Anatoly Karpov)
More changes will no doubt be made as I learn more of what I am doing wrong.
Wishing you all pleasant chess
