    Thanks. Drilling definitely helps. Flash cards sounds like a great idea. What you say about blind really rings through as I'm making some attempts on that now. I'm actually finding remembering the letter pairs really tough, but I'll get there eventually...

    Thanks, good to hear it's not just me. This helps a lot. I've been spamming since I wrote the post and pretty sure I have them now. I think I just need to learn them at a slower rate than most and keep regoing through them all.

    I don't know if it's an age thing, but I've spent the last few days trying to learn a new alg, and once I get it, I forget another one that I knew well before I started. This has seriously happened about 6 times now, I'm swapping algs in and out of my head. Any ideas?

    Thanks. I knew I could get times down with more practice, but wondering if I should really try get my 3x3 down first before attempting. Sounds like I can get close enough to a cut off time with where I'm at with 3x3, so will continue on. Thanks.

    I average about 30s on 3x3, and have started spending a bit of time on 5x5 too, which takes me about 6 minutes. From what I see from splits, the 3x3 part should be about 10% of the time. Which means that I'd need to be a 15s 3x3 solver to be able to get sub 2.5 minutes on 5x5. Am I missing...

    New to this forum, but cubing about a year (after being able to solve occasionally 20 years ago, depending on the PLL, which I'd rescramble if I didn't know it). Down to an average of 30s, with 2LLL and watching all Jperms videos, repeatedly.
