Despite you saying that you disagree with me, I still think I actually agree with you(!)
Maybe I’m over complicating what I’m trying to say, and there are a lot of variables here, most of which are probably irrelevant. I just don’t want to throw the baby out with the bath water since pretty much everything we’re discussing here has been covered by others, and still *the way* (or our own way) hasn’t been isolated.
Though you and I had different gains and losses, and over different time frames, and are at different stages in our PE career…there are some common areas. Rather than muddy the waters further, perhaps we should make pre-supposition like: Taking a break works(?)
Maybe it doesn’t work, but lets suppose it does. How would we ‘binary chop’ the on/off intervals between us in the most effective way to arrive at some kind of result?
I started PE again yesterday after a 9 month lay off, so if my history is anything to go by, I should get around 3/8” within 3-13 days. Before starting yesterday I was 7 1/4” BPFSL by 5 1/4” girth, so lets see what happens. After I flatline, lets say I take the shortest time off that got me results (17 days) then repeat? If that fails then I can double the time off and try again.
