Round 77

Not bad considering I have a stinking cold, feel like death warmed up and have had no sleep whatsoever for two weeks due to non-sleeping twin babies! This is also now my non-preferred cube but I couldn't be bothered to get the 356X out of my bag. Regardless, I think it's going to be tricky for me to get consistently below 30 now as I've reached the limits of how much I can "spam" and need to improve efficiency, especially in the F2B stage. Regardless, I'm racing to 30 now - gotta be ambitious!

I'd like to start doing this. I'm currently averaging in the mid 40s. I'd love to get down below 30 seconds, but for now, I'm just going to shoot for sub-40. I'll post times tomorrow.

Yuck - very inconsistent... mostly caused by me not doing any 3x3 solves at all this week as I've been concentrating on 4x4 (dropped well over a minute on average in the last week and first sub-2 min solve!), 5x5 and working out methods for Pyraminx, Square-1 and remembering my method for Clock. Sub-30 should still be possible but I really need a LOT of quality 3x3 practice to do it and I'm not sure I can be all that bothered!

You are doing great! All you need to fix is. You are supposed to list what round it is, what cube you are using, what method, and what your are racing too. Like @Foreright is doing. Take a look at theirs 2 posts up^

This time is fine. Just giving you a little heads up ;)

Round 79
Cube: Gan 356X
Race to Sub-27
Method: CFOP/Roux

Ao12: 28.02

27.151
26.816
31.520
28.848
28.303
25.505
(24.752)
28.463
29.152
25.057
(32.688)
29.360

Well... I'm struggling to improve with Roux, mostly due to tiredness and learning other puzzles / solving big cubes I think and have switched back to CFOP for the time being but using Roux when it's clearly better. Revised target is 27 seconds - was going to pick 25 but I think that's a little too far out of reach at the moment even though I'm getting the odd solve in the 21-22 range now. The above would have been on target without the last couple of horrid solves!
