Comment: Really happy with this! It probably should of been a low 14 average because I made some mistakes, especially on solve 8, but a really consistent average. I really came in clutch with the 13 and the 14.05 at the end. I'm looking forward to having more consistent sub 15 ao100s.

Week 31
Goal: Sub-22
Cube: QiYi Warrior W
Comment: This was the luckiest sequence of scrambles I think I've ever done as I got 3 PLL skips in the average of 12. So with only one blunder in the average, graduating sub-22 was done fairly comfortably. Onward to sub-21!

Avg of 12: 21.41

Time List:
1. (18.48) - PLL skip
2. 23.32 - PLL skip; just a really slow F2L
3. 20.85
4. (23.37) - Inserted wrong edge into 3rd F2L slot, killing an otherwise promising solve
5. 21.66
6. 22.37
7. 21.21
8. 23.36
9. 18.54
10. 20.62 - PLL skip
11. 20.33
12. 21.81

Week 31 (Attempting 1/3)
Goal: Sub-28
Cube: Gan 365 X (Stickerless) and Stackmat
Comment: Not Bad. I practiced with mainly untimed solves in the past month. Improvement was substantial yet not consistent. I will focus on consistently being sub-28, then sub-26, sub-25, and sub-24.

Goal: sub 25
Cube: GAN 356X
Comment: At the moment it's really easy to get my goal of a ao12 of sub 25. I have a lot of free time to practice and I have still a lot to improve on. I am curious when my improvement is going to slow down. I'm really glad with my solve of 15.94. I'm am curious to see if it was just an easy scramble.

Comment: I spent almost 2 weeks doing untimed solves to practice being CN. Even though this avg was done with only white crosses I can say that working on being CN has considerably dropped my recognition times, resulting on this crazy avg12 where I almost beat my PB single !

Every monday I will post 12 scrambles for a 3x3 race.
Everybody can join in. Just post your goal, times and average.

You become a graduate, when you meet your personal goal for 3 consecutive tries.

Above 10 seconds you set goals of whole seconds.
Under 10 seconds you set goals of halve seconds.

I like your message when I updated the list of graduates with your result.

Comment: yesterday I set a new PB ao12 of 21.16. Today I was only interested in becoming sub 25 for the third week in a row. The circumstances were not optimal. The lighting was pretty bad and it was storming outside. I had some hiccups but managed to be still sub 24.
