Goal: sub 40
Cube: Moyu Weilong GTS3M (brand new, got it yesterday)
Comment: Sub 30! I got my first sub-30 solve a few days ago and now it feels like I've broken out of a slump. I'm improving rapidly, and if I graduate next week then I might go for sub-30.

Ao12: 29.93 (2/3)

Time List:
1. 30.00 - Solid start! Fullstep 2. (25.66) - 1-look PLL. Felt slow, but turned out amazing
3. 30.58 - Good solve, fullstep
4. 29.61 - Bad F2L, used a sledgehammer to get a 1-look OLL, bad PLL recognition
5. 25.68 - Easy cross, great solve, fullstep
6. 27.32 - Big pause in F2L, 1-look OLL
7. 32.03 - Bad cross, good setup for F2L but bad execution. Fullstep
8. 28.02 - Horrible F2L, used a PLL I recently learned. Fullstep
9. 32.55 - Two big pauses in F2L. Fullstep
10. 29.51 - Worst F2L I've had in a while. Used a PLL I just learned, fullstep
11. 33.99 - Messed up on PLL, had to do it twice. Fullstep 12. (36.27) - Bad PLL recognition, messed up on cross and performed a pitiful F2L. Fullstep

Goal : Sub 20

Comment:
Those over-30 solves are due to executing the same alg wrong and also doing the cross wrong :/ but i do get alot mor sub 21 solves recently, i hope the worse cases disappear soon as well xD

Goal: Sub 40
Cube: Moyu Weilong GTS3M
Comment: Haven't solved for at least a week, did some solves just before the Ao12 to warm up. Solving was a nightmare, my fingers felt sloppy and slow, my solves weren't smooth. The average turned out pretty ok anyway, and I passed my goal.

That third solve was pretty lucky. Smooth F2L and a PLL Skip. But the rest of the average is pretty bad.

Week 47
Goal: Sub-20
Cube: Valk 3 Power M
Comment: Back from travels in which I went to a bunch of competitions and got a 14.88 single PR and 18.55 average PR thanks in part due to the motivation to improve provided by this weekly race.. So I'm back after a bit of a break to get to sub-20. I can definitely do it - 4 of the 5 averages I set in those competitions were sub-20. I'm just not consistently in that zone where my turning is smooth and I'm getting good lookahead in F2L. So this week's times are a mix of the good and the bad, with far too many of the bad for me to be happy.

Avg of 12: 22.46

Time List:
1. 22.93
2. (36.43) - Wrong U-Perm and then messed up trying to fix it.
3. 18.49
4. 23.20
5. 26.67 - Turning was really bad
6. 21.44
7. 23.31
8. 24.81 - Somehow forgot to the do the Line part of EOLine
9. (16.14) - Full step; just smooth with good lookahead. Why can't they all be like this?
10. 21.47
11. 19.90
12. 22.35+

Comment: Decent average for me. The counting 15's killed me. I average high 14's, so this was pretty good. I'm doing sub 14 because I want to push myself to get faster and I now have two sub 14 official averages.

Week: 47
Goal: Sub-15
Cube: MF3RS2
Comment: inconsistent ao12, had a couple cross solutions that felt inefficient/slow. something I'd like to work on in particular to improve.
