Unable to hold the pace

Still in circle 2, but already it is impossible to to the intended 40 problems in one hour. The last 40 took me 72 minutes. I had tried to choose simple ones, but their number is limited, of course. Queen sacrifice and mate in 7, this is very hard to calculate in less than one minute. In circle 3, one hour will be definitely too short to do 80 problems! I must rework my time schedule.

119 days, 5 to go in circle 2

I am having massive problems with time pressure in circle 3. Indeed, trying to calculate with just one minute is almost futile. Problems I do well on, I tend to find the theme right off the bat. Try and find the theme, and you might find you are doing less calculation. Yet, either way it's a total b*$^h.
