What is it like to read Romans at Doug Moo's rate?

If we're preparing to read Romans along with Doug Moo's commentary, at Doug Moo's rate of discussion spread over a year (about 18 pp. / week), then here are some broad dates of progress, and thus dates of discussion here!  The percentages are the changes in Moo's rate compared to a constant reading rate.  (If, on the other hand, you're regular-schedule-driven, after this is a sample 15 week semester schedule for reading).
