Is this thread dead? I don't mind taking over this thread if need be, I actually love to solve 5x5 and this thread gave me good practice. I'll probably post scrambles later tonight after I go through all of the people and where they were at.

I screwed the last solve up really bad. all of the edges were paired except 2 at 1:30, but did the wrong algorithm twice to fix it, that should've been a PB single by quite a bit.

Round: 58
Race to Sub: 3:00
Cube: MoYu BoChuang GT
Method: FreeSlice/CFOP
Average: 3:10.50

1. 3:14.32
2. 3:13.19
3. 3:13.58
4. (2:37.19)
5. 2:52.62
6. 3:16.76
7. 3:32.54
8. 3:29.47
9. 3:00.37
10. (3:36.52)
11. 3:04.82
12. 2:47.31

This is the third day having my BoChuang, and it's my first 5x5 (okay not really, I have an old rubiks brand but that doesn't count). I'm not sure if this is a good average or not, but it felt like a decent clip, so I can't say whether or not I'm disappointed with my performance.
General breakdown: centers 50-60, edges 90-120, 3x3 30-40.
I hated 5x5 because it took forever (avg-10m, best 7.5m), but this cube has changes that. It's so airy and smooth I love solving it now.
Hope to get 2:00-2:30 by the end of the year. I don't know how realistic that is, but it doesn't seem so out-of reach.

Race to sub 2, Brand new Bochuang and Reduction method.

Wow! All new PBs! The Bochuang is quite the upgrade from the Ao.

I need better consistency in my solves.
Best and worst solves should only be ~30 sec apart I think.

Round 59 - Race to sub 3:30
Cube: Yuxin 5x5
Method: Reduction/CFOP

Ao12: 3:41.85

3:32.43, (4:12.77), (3:09.86), 4:08.12, 3:49.86, 3:47.96, 3:31.42, 3:24.37, 4:04.76, 3:38.20, 3:31.80, 3:29.53

Still too many high 3s and even some low 4s but slowly improving. Global average right now is around 3:45 and improving so I thought sub 3:30 would be achievable yet a challenge.
