Hmm. Solid improvement. Sometimes a break can do you good!So I haven't updated this thread in 3 weeks because I haven't really done any solves in the last 3 weeks.
You know, because of school.
I've done a little 3x3 solving in between, and I've competed in the ZZ Method Solvers Discord Weekly Competition so there's a tiny margin of maintenance, but I've only done about 300 OH solves this month.
I did some solves yesterday night. 9.9 3x3 ao100 which is nice. I'm a little surprised that I'm not getting any slower for not solving, but it is cool to stay sub 10. I also haven't completed an ao1k yet, so by some formal definitions I'm not sub10 yet, but I don't think that will be a real issue as long as I can just knock out solves over the next week.
Anyway, I really haven't done much OH solving at all since something like July. August was the 10k attempt, and while I only got in a little over 6k that was huge in terms of improvement As of July, I hadn't been doing that much OH and was struggling to get sub 15.
I know that I've done a couple hundred solves that have been sub 14, but that's not something that's sunken in yet; I haven't really internalized that every time I get a 13 its not just a lucky solve. I just got four 12s in the span of 5 solves-- the ao5 was about 0.8 away from my PB but what surprised me wasn't that it was fast, but how natural they were and I didn't notice them until like 10 solves later. They seemed pretty natural -- nothing about the solve seemed particularly fast or efficient, but that's how most of my solves are now.
School is going as well as it can; running is good enough so far. I'm hoping to be able to incorporate a daily ao50 into my schedule so that I can start grinding out PBs. Can't break an ao100 if I'm not doing solves to track that ao100, even if I'm fast enough :/
PBs from the session:
13.60 ao100 -- almost what my previous ao50 was
12.99 ao25 -- sub 13!!
12.80 ao12 -- 1.0 slower than my ao5
