So my 4x4 race thread has been pretty popular since I started it, and I have always wished that there was a 5x5 one, so I figured why not? I will post an ao12 weekly using scrambles from either CStimer or QQtimer, if an ao12 is too long for you, feel free to just do the first 5 scrambles. You will graduate when you have been under your goal 3 rounds in a row. The splits will be sub 1:00, 1:15, 1:30, 1:45, 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, 2:45, 3:00, 3:30, 4:00, and 5:00. You can do your own split if you want however, for example. If you average around 3:25, sub 3:00 is a big jump so you can do 3:15 or something. This thread is to motivate people, and help them get faster.

Please post your results like this:
Round 15
Race to sub 1:30
*your times* = *your average*

Round 3!
Race to sub 2:30: 2:28.980
2:47.091, 2:37.401, 2:26.050, (1:57.313), 2:11.546, 2:06.591, 2:29.564, 2:48.705, 2:26.339, 2:39.407, 2:17.108, (2:48.959)
This average had way too many pops so was pretty slow for me, but still sub 2:30. The 1:57 is PB and first sub 2 though :)
