In order to make room for bi-weekly chess sessions in an already cramped fun time quota budget, I will have to make changes to the planned training activities before even finding out in what ways the training plan would fail.
Concrete is the new buzzword. Minimal time invested in planning, preparations and book keeping:

- 30+ Chesstempo problems per week
- 50+ Slow games this year
- 3+ Chess books to (re-)read
Alexander Alekhine's Best Games: Algebraic Edition
Simple Chess: New Algebraic Edition
Logical Chess: Move By Move: Every Move Explained
Essential Chess Endings: The Tournament Player's Guide (using Silman's Complete Endgame Course: From Beginner To Master should GM Howell's book turn out to be too advanced.)
