I think this is the key point. Availability of time .... I feel that if it was possible for me to practice every day for about 2 weeks that my progress would be quite satisfying. The couple of hours I get every week or two helps to keep my progress at a frustratingly slow rate.
I recall one of Julie's first replies ... - it is all about the journey. So what does it really matter if others are faster or slower as long as you enjoy your own efforts. Age is but a number.... and this is proven in the 70, 80 or 90 year olds we see keeping fit through physical activities. Skating, skiing and swimming, I have seen many, and it can be a challenge to keep up at times.
