The Value of Warming Up

Warm ups can make the difference between a good workout and a great one. 

I noticed this when I played the trumpet too. No warm-up? No high C. 

How does a Greek student "warm up"? 

I've noticed that prayer helps. Surveying that day's lesson before doing a deep dive increases your awareness of what's ahead. Also, beware of the danger of over-studying. TMI is rarely helpful. If your beginning grammar has dozens of footnotes on every page, you might want to supplement it with a grammar that gets right to the point. Sometimes less is more. 

Just a brief post to say hey!
