Hey, everyone! It's been a while since I've posted anything, but I have been averaging sub 9 for about 2-3 months now. I am pretty consistent as well, which is always really nice. I beat my PB average of 12 yesterday. It has now been lowered to 7.70! I still haven't beaten my PB single though. 5.13 is the time to beat. PB ao100 is now 8.34, but I believe that time will be going down very soon. Here is my best average:

Thank you to every one who has been keeping track of my progress. Owen, it looks like I am officially faster than you. Micah, you're next!

Hey there, I practice about as much as you and have been trying to incorporate more focus drills. I became sub 20 about two weeks ago. What drills did you do and how do you remember to do them instead of doing many solves, I often get lost in them. Also I've read lots about not starting lookahead until your f2l is always efficient, any ideas how to practice efficiency other than many solves?

Thanks,

First off, start look ahead as soon as possible. Your F2L will get better the more you learn how to properly look ahead and also incorporate those new algorithms. Make sure to go back and learn more efficient algorithms whenever there is something that you may not like as much, But remember: more efficient is not always better. I know several different algorithms for different cases and will still chose to go with the basic algorithm just because I know that I can execute them quickly. Also, make sure to practice cross solved scrambles. These will make it easier for you to practice your look ahead. You can also learn how to have an easier time finding pairs. I really hope this helps! Good luck on your quest to Sub-15!!
