Degrading too Rapid!

I am at Level 15. I've been going all out to build my level up to where it was a few months ago - it has taken 3 weeks (I aim to get going with German) - some days I've been doing 150-200 points a day which takes a great deal of time!

However, having got back to where I wanted to be, - with all the bars/circles full, they are degrading faster than I am completing the tasks, literally - for example returning this morning I had 3 newly degraded circles so started there and now I have done that there are 3 additional degraded circles. My plan was to move to new exercises this morning.. Also, the level of 'fluency' has gone backwards for the first time - it went to 43% and then back to 42% - (I think it has done this twice).

I understand that repetition is really important. But that is all that I am able to do within the current settings. For example if I worked to the target of 20 points per day I would be going backwards very rapidly.

Am I missing something here? Or can the settings be altered to allow for reasonable progress in addition to necessary repetition?
