Back from vacation

I'm so happy to be playing again. So happy that I played for 2 hours straight and noticed a lot of muscles are kept up when playing constantly.  My tensor fasciae latae, for example is used quite a bit when pedaling. My shoulder is also fatigued. And the muscles I built up in my thumb to play Arabesque 2 are atrophied.

Chaconne - I need to skip over the problem measures and go for the remaining 3 or 4. Then go back to the hard ones.

Arabesque 2 - I fudged and checked a measure off just so I'd have something to check off. It's getting disheartening.

ImpCap - Just taking it easy. 1st 2 pages checked off.

New string in place, played until my hands got shaky.  Tendon still hurts, even after resting on vacation. Got 2nd page of ImpCap to 80.
