Plan (Jan 2021)
see @shoutpolenta on twitter for recent stream/news/pb announcements.
in december 2020, i finally conceded defeat, falling short on my goal-oriented plans and realising i didn’t have the drive in me to keep pushing w/ time goals. so continuing in the same spirit, i’m gonna discuss goals i’ll be working towards, but there won’t be a deadline for them and i doubt there ever will again. so we’ll just swim onwards 🐸
i’ll keep pushing ahead on my track of movement ils, since it was the most fun part of last year for me.
- bianco 3: <13.95 secret, ~37.50 full
- ricco 4: low 30 secret, but gotta see where it takes me
- pinna 3 tas: <36.90 (i.e. do the strat)
- sirena 2: <35.15 secret (not too hard a goal vs the others)
the theme for my il progress has been building up to ever-bigger pieces executed at a high standard. this can’t be applied directly to an hour-long run, but does indicate a strategy based on getting consistent at ever longer strings of movement. so particular focus will go into
- pianta 6
- noki 1
- noki 2
as well as many offline voice-call sessions doing runs of IWs or impromptu strings of levels, focusing on repeated executions of short but intensive segments.
you’ll see me doing any% runs from time to time. the intention is to have the whole run freshly practised, then be able to do it with that passive focus i mentioned. so i’ll be thinking and messing about a lot with mindfulness and meditation as part of my approach to any%
expect more movement ils (secret reds) and short rta categories (10 shines no shines)
and outside of playing?
there’s a big push to solidify various things regarding the il sheet and the work-in-progress wiki by the end of jan. after that, if there’s time, i’ll look into getting some tutorials out and maybe starting a new computer-vision experiment for a future load timer and autosplitter
