5:04.26 4BLD PB! The scramble is below. I spent an extra 15 ish seconds reviewing because the memo was so good (about 2:15 before review), so sub 5 is coming soon.
Probably gonna stop 4BLD until I finish UFR corners, as I have a competition with 3BLD in mid March and my single sucks right now lmao.

4BLD NC SR coming at SE champs ;)

16/24/6', 24 algs. x' after scramble in orientation.

Should I practice 4 or go on to like 5?
If you're able to get 5/6 in 51:40, it makes sense to practice 6 or 7. Of course, it can also be beneficial to occasionally practice smaller numbers and go for speed. But I think it's helpful to regularly push yourself for the maximum you can somewhat safely do in an hour. 5/6 shows you're able to handle 6.

Just got a 4/5 in 28:36[20:38] Which means avg memo per cube is 4 mins. Comparing that to my previous attempt about 18 hours ago (yesterday afternoon), is amazing. The avg memo per cube for that was 7 mins. Obviously this attempt was one cube less than yesterday's but I think the improvement between just these two solves is incredible.

MBLD: 14/17 1:36:46 [1:11:13]

First attempt at more than 13 cubes, and second attempt at more than 11. Also first multi attempt since Great British Blind Off in January. DNFs were a flipped edge, a twisted corner, and a messed up Y-perm.

6/10 MBLD in 50:35 from the weekly competition. The result is really bad, but my mistakes were all due to exec (2 inv comms, 1 move, and 1 wrong edge flip alg). This is a huge leap for me, as I tend to have lots of recall mistakes, so having none is great.

I plan on trying 12 soon, as I'm getting annoyed that I haven't gotten 10 points yet.
