The Return of 2-2-2

It's been awhile since I have had the opportunity to work through the exercises with any regularity.
But there comes a time when one just has to push all the extra crap aside and just make time to do the things one enjoys. I love studying chess. In some form or another, I feel like it is something that helps me to relax. Even my wife has noticed a difference since I quit following my own program, and has encouraged me to restart the exercises! How cool is that?
So to gather any kind of feedback on whether the 2-2-2 plan was working I feel it necessary to restart the program and maintain it for the duration.
So without further delay... Welcome Back Mr. Pawnza!

Focus Material- "1000x Checkmate" by Ftacnik
Cycle 1- 25 problems completed. Points Reached 78/78=100%
25 down 175 to go in Cycle 1

Totals
25 down-5,975 remaining
1 Day down 139 to go

For those wondering the "Points Reached" stat is one that is generated by Chessbase. Right-click on a database, then select "Training" to gather the information.

Sounds great: I really like the 2-2-2 plan, and am curious to see how you end up feeling about it once you have gone through it.

It may take some time, but there always comes a moment that wifes start to see that they are better off when you sit quietly behind your computer and they can do what they like. . .
