I had a session today with a proper warm up, and a new amber pro, still disappointing but at least i got over 13k this time. Best score was only 13,272 rpm (-771 from record) but hopefully with more regular full sessions I'll be back up to speed in time for Telford.
Keep training hard Barry and you'll be at 14k by Telford!
come and beat me if u dare
LOL, 14k at Telford, not likely!!
I'll be happy with a score close to my record, just a reasonable score relative to what I know I can do.
However, if it's a nice big improvement then all the better .
My neon record is still the score I got at Maplin (13,484 rpm) and I've only hit 14k 3 times with the regular.
In the mean time I'm building an LM3886 Gainclone Amp for something to do.
Don't worry Barry,
At Telford, everyone will be subject to a new standardized process. Neons, and the 60 minutes warmup/shaping are all new processes which can and most likely will present different results than the expected. I'd suggest trying to train along the official rules/conduct/guidelines to allow yourself to know how to warmup properly, when to rest, for how long, etc. and to rest yourself up (eat your veggies!!!) to build up energy for the big day.
The new process will throw everyone off from their usual sessions...
Just quick update on this weeks three sessions...
Best score on Sunday_ was 13,272 rpm (-771)
Best score on Tuesday was 13,170 rpm (-873)
Best score on Friday__ was 13,195 rpm (-848)
These were all with a regular pro (rh), not even a neon. Not that long ago I was getting 13.5k+ in every session .
Hopefully things will improve soon as these scores are just depressing.
Head up Barry not all is lost.
Re-think through your warm up and take a bit of rest. I can't think why you have a sudden dip in form, I'm sure you'll be up to scratch by Telford.
I agree with Pete. Try and change your warm up a bit and try to get used to the 1 hour warm up that you'll have in Telford Also rest a bit before you go it won't do you any bad
Telford??, I want to see a video of that day!, Powerballs stuff will record it?, I hope so...
I now that you can do more than 13k Barry, maybe is your tech, try to see some video of your best score or something like that... (I do that when my score are going down, and I improve a few hundreds)
Slightly better session today....
Best score was 13,355 rpm (-688) and 13 of the 17 right hands runs were over 13k.
I even managed a 12,971 rpm left hand, I was pretty pleased with that.
Looks like my scores are heading in the right direction now anyway .
