I average in the 3:30s when warmed up but significantly slower when I'm not. Got a crazy easy first solve of the day. Sure wish I could've saved it for when I was warmed up, it would've been an easy PB. Centers were done in around 1:25
Finally getting close to some PBs again. I thought I'd beaten some of them, actually, but not quite. Not unless you count pop-free 7x7 AO100 which I don't really.
3:39 AO100 (excluding pop solves)
3:28.05 AO12. Thought it was PB, but I have a 3:28.00.
3:20 AO5, PB but I didn't realize it was...
First ever BLD solve. 37:12.86 (~26:25). OP/OP. Corners: aKU TouchDown BmX Edges: QuiD VaN LaX WC (toilet stall) PH (acidity) lUX (Gemini Syndrome album)
Not a super skillful solve or memo obviously but for a first success I'll sure take it! Second ever full attempt. Kind of surprised I got a...
Just attempted 3BLD for the first time ever. Off by 3 corners, so reasonably close for a first attempt. Execution was ~13:20, memo was on and off for a couple hours before while doing other stuff. OP/OP because I was too lazy to learn M2 before attempting. Solve did not have parity, which is...
This is the first time in quite a while that Feliks isn't the undisputed best all-around cuber in the world in the cubic non-bld events. He probably still is but it's close and it's only getting closer. Max is closer to the level of Feliks than anybody since Feliks started getting WRs.
Most speedsolvers seem to have regrets about how they have learned and at some level wish they could go back and tell their past selves to learn differently. There are others, but a few of the most frequent examples are wishing you'd learned a different main method, wishing you had started out...

Crazy easy. 2nd best solve ever, and best with a non lucky last layer. F2L was easy as hell though.

First sub 7 ever. Wasn't that great of a solve; wasn't anything approaching pauseless. Just a decent solve and a great scramble. I saw cross + 1 during inspection, all F2L pairs were 2gen and fairly easy, and LL was just back sune.

9.91 AO5 just now that I thought was PB, but apparently I got a 9.76 that I didn't even notice before now! Also got a 10.80 AO12 that's PB (I think so at least), 11.62 AO50 that ties PB, and 11.94 AO100 that's second best ever. Good session.
No way... anyone else ever done this?

11.87 AO100; PB and first sub 12. At long last. Also got a 9.76 AO5; PB and second sub 10.
I've accomplished all my direct 3x3 goals. Sub 10 AO5, sub 11 AO12, and now sub 12 AO100. I'll either have to decide I want to improve even more at 3x3 or start practicing big cubes again if I want to...

Finally sub 10! 9.98 AO5 (PB) and 11.05 AO12 (my PB is 10.94). As far as I know, the streaks of 18 consecutive sub 13s and 6 consecutive sub 11s I got are both PBs as well.
So, I've got a sub 10 AO5 and sub 11 AO12! Just need to beat my 12.02 AO100 now.
Times here. Would post scrambles if I...
Well, a fun accomplishment for my 1000th post: I finally got around to starting to learn BLD. I did a corners only solve using OP and letter pairs, and was successful on my first ever try. Being experienced with cubing and having done sighted solves using OP and M2 before helped, obviously. Just...
I didn't actually give a solution for the whole solve, just for F2L plus edge orientation. There was nothing notable about the last layer so I didn't bother writing it down. I'm not that good! No UWRs for me ;)
