if your inspection is sub 8 from just cross, you can spend the rest looking for first pair. Use as much inspection as you can (at least 10 or 12)
Once I hear the 8s, I usually start planning first pair. I should probably speed it up though. I've been planning first pair since I was Sub 17, so it isn't actually that hard for me to find one during inspection.

Week 9:
This week, I am really trying to improve on competition style practice. I have been doing so much better when it comes to getting rid of bad habits. I even got a 8.94 ao25 today! I feel like if I can increase my TPS and also improve my look ahead, it is really going to help me improve and get to Sub 9

Week 12:

I am so close to Sub 9.5 that I can actually taste it. I will hopefully be competing in @Jam88 league, and I am really looking forward to it. I have been getting much more Sub 9 averages recently, and also been able to see 2 pairs in inspection more often. However, my F2L is going to need so much more work. SO, I have challenged my self to get my F2L down to 5 seconds in 2 months. This might seem as important to others, but for me, it's different. I have also been doing a lot of last layer practice. More improvement soon!!

Month 5:

Well, let's keep talking about improvement. I've still been working on ZBLL, trying improve. I think that I could finish one of the sets by the end of May, only because I don't actually learn super fast. I have been working pretty hare and want to announce something:

My first live stream will be tomorrow, April 12th, at 7am EST.

I have never streamed before, so I think that this will be interesting. The stream will be on YouTube, so make sure to subscribe to get the notification to my channel Cubing for Life. I look forward to seeing you there!

Month 6:

OK PEOPLE: 1 more ZBLL and then I will be finished with U ZBLL!! I literally just learned one, but because it's early and the one that I just learned was really easy, I do believe that this will be the last day that I will be learning algs for this case! I just feel like there is so much that I can accomplish while learning ZBLL. I have actually gotten quite a few good solves with 5x5 because of some forced EO into a U ZB. My averages have also been going down quite drastically. I now average around 9.3 to 9.4, but with some more deliberate F2L practice, I think that I will get down to Sub-9 within 3-4 months.

The deliberate practice i=that I have been doing consist of F2L practice and a lot of LSLL (Last-Slot + Last-Layer). I have actual;ly noticed that my solves are much better after starting my sessions with LSLL practice. I have realized that it actually helps me drop my times by about .3 during the first 30 minutes of my session. After that, the times will go up by a fraction of the amount that it dropped, but, I believe that this type of practice will really help me on my journey to Sub-9 and getting faster than Owen.

Thanks for reading

It's been nearly a year since my last post in this thread, but today I have gotten my first ever sub 9 average of 100. It feels pretty good! I have not stopped practicing, and I am starting to see more of an improvement in my solves. Here are the times just in case you guys would like to take a look:
