I like your approach very much.
Just a quick question: since you are using 3 "6 week blocks", I understand that the second half of the 5/3/1+Jokers is stepping back using the "5 forward 3 back" method.
However, what I don't get is how you move onto the next 3 stages. I'm asking because, if you follow the 5 forward 3 back, doing the 3 stages would mean that, for the next 4 cycles you should push your numbers and then go back again, but that would be during the first stage of the 5/3/1+Jokers instead of the second (because the last jokers cycle was the first of the "5 forward").
How do you deal with that? Or do you just do the 3 back in the last stage of jokers and then push the cycles until you reach that stage again? (that would be like a 6 forward and 3 back).
Thanks a lot!
