September was the last month I planned to get used to everything that is different between my old stable and Smart Spin. I had a high Learn-to-Grind ratio in order to learn everything the right way. Basically everything I did in September only was done to be able to grind comfortably in Oktober, so I can push the volume and attack higher limits in the future. I feel like my game at a point is where it should be possible to move up over time, if the stuff I have no influence over turns it's direction ans is neutral or even in my favor! I am not completely sure, if I even can manage to grind out the nessesary volume, as, after a longish break, we are back to renovating again, which takes up alot of my mental resources and I am in between jobs, which also takes away some effort and time. In the end of September I added a second table to my grind routine again, so I would be somewhat used to it in the beginning of October already. And if variance keeps being a b***ch, I will ecavuate and sail away on my ark instead of just drawning!
The german learning group started somewhat slow in September, but in the end of the month, we finally got a nice group going. I think it is very valueable for everyone participating. The sessions with my study partner still are pure gold and and this point I wouldn't want to miss them anymore!

Renovating progress and plans
As both of us, my girlfriend and I, were exhausted and needed some time for us we made a spontanious Vacation and visited an island in the northsea.
The very next week we went to visit family in Upper Franconia. We had such a great time, but in return the renovating progress somewhat stood still. We removed the carpet and old wallpapers in the corridor (it is huge!) and got rid of all the bulk trash. Now we planned to put on the new wallpapers and laminate in the corridor this week. The ferretroom will be next objective and hopefully will be finished by the end of the month. The homegym is finally operational!
In Oktober I plan to pretty much 2 table in all of my sessions. It comes with a big learning potential but allows me to put in some more volume, too.
Looking at results once a week
I've discussed this topic multiple times. There's no value in checking the results more often than once a week. if you do it more often only evil things come with it! So me and my training partner are only checking them in our meetups!
Increase Grind-Learn Ratio
In all oktober I only want to spend 1 hour a day towards active learning (so 30ish hours) and therefor add more Grind. Like this I hopefully can achieve my volume goal!
