Endurance=improvement (just like long distance running)
I am starting to realize that I am not ever going to be a sprinter. I am just not built for it. I do however, find happiness in going a few miles with my ipod on and some excellent tunage. I think for me, chess may be the same way. I think that I am not ready for shorter games. My mind is just not structured for the intensity and fast pace that is needed for success in games shorter than 10 minutes. However, I noticed that with time (and a patient opponent) I can think things through and make some decent decisions. I've noticed that this morning when I played my first game. I don't know how to post it though :( . I think I did ok in this game. We came to the conclusion that a draw would be best. It was fun for sure. Hopefully, I'll have more experiences like this one in the future.
