Just saying hi because of your progress in 3x3 in the last year. I am now sub 17 and would love to be sub 13 one year from now. Can you offer any particular advice on how you achieved this?I checked my globals in all of my events from the end of 2017, and then compared them with my current ones:
3x3: I was sub 17, now sub 13
4x4: Sub 2:30, now sub 53
5x5: 4:30 - 1:35
6x6: -- to 3:30
OH: 1:00 - 24
SQ1: None to WR270
Pyra - 17 average to now sub 7
Mega: 3:00 to 1:30
I think I'd like to be top 100 in the world for square one, and sub 1 in mega, sub 1:15 in 5x5, sub 40 in 4x4, and sub 17 in OH
This year, global averages unless otherwise noted:Looking back at my goals from last year I've come remarkably close. I'll wait until the end of the year to post on that thread how I've done on those.
So by the end of 2018:
2x2: Currently ~10 seconds. Goal: 10 seconds Yeah! Did it!
3x3: Currently ~30 seconds. Goal: learn full OLL, sub-25 No. More OLLs, running about 28 seconds.
4x4: Currently ~1:30. Goal: Sub-1:10, sub-1:00 single No, actually got a bit slower.
5x5: Currently ~2:45-3:00. Goal: Sub-2:20, sub-2:00 single. No. About 2:40 average, sub-2:10 single.
6x6: Currently ~5:10. Goal: Sub-4:00, sub-3:00 single, get to 2,000 timed solves. No. All counts. No real progress.
7x7: Currently ~8:20. Goal: Sub 6:30, sub-5:00 single, get to 1,000 solves. No. Averaging about 7:00-7:15.
Megaminx: Currently ~3:20. Goal: Sub-3:00 Yeah! About 2:40 average!
OH: I don't care. I'll probably get to sub-45 if I get everything else. Pretty close, actually. Running about 50-55.
3BLD: practice. Since successes are still scarcer than hen's teeth I don't know what a good time is. No real progress, got a 4:2x DNF though.
Big blind and MBLD: I need to figure out 3BLD first, but I really want to do big blind. Moon shot goal would be at least one success for each of 4-7. Same.
Feet: Currently ~2:00. Goal: Sub-1:30 with sub-1:00 single. Close. Averaging about 1:40, single about 1:10.
Square-1: don't forget how to solve it. Hmm. This should have been easy.
Skewb and pyraminx don't relearn. Pyraminx failed, I relearned it. Not fast: averaging about 20 seconds. Skewb I haven’t relearned since I don’t have one, but there’s a new one in the mailbox :-(
Clock: don't learn. Yeah!
FMC: maybe practice. Nope.
Gigaminx: sub-20:00 Nope.
Edit: more optimistic goals.
