Re: Practise at work?

Eat lunch ... 15 minutes.
Practice.. 15 minutes

that's a 30 minute lunch break. I usually take 45 minutes, so I can work on the practice pad for 30 minutes.

Re: Practise at work?

I do 4-way coordination stuff sometimes.

I bring a practice pad and at lunch go down to a room (health room) and practice in there.
