Thank you so much! I have been struggling at 33~36s for the past 2 weeks. Then today I practiced blindfolded cross + slow f2l solves the whole afternoon, and somehow it worked! Gotta keep practicing to officially break sub-30! ;)
nice! you have good practicing methods.
maybe you'll be the next Felix Zemdegs

So, today no pb but yesterday and the two day before: !!!!!!
Single PB: 16.37
Ao5 PB: ~23.5 to 22.99
Ao12 PB: ~26.5 to 24.30
Ao50 PB: ~28.3 to 26.08
Ao100 PB: ~28.7 to 26.59
I have some days of holydays even tho I have other things to do so this is why I'm improving so fast.

Day 57 of cubing. (today)

Also I'm learning OLL ! (Going for all the "I" to start: 7/15 for the moment
I'm about the same! I know 36 OLLs and here are my best times for 3x 3:
Single: 18.15
PR single: 21.21
Ao5: 23.67
PR avg: 28.61
Ao12: 25.27
Ao100: 28.7649
(All including PRs were set in the past month( PRs on March 23rd, my PB was set on March 11th, but besides that, they were all set in the past month)

Also I set my first Ao1000 record on March 11 (started on July 15): 39.801343 s per solve. In that time I got 10 PBs (28.60,28.40,26.66,26.27,25.93,24.79,24.42,21.76,20.23, & 18.15) and after doing 300 solves on 3x 3 and taking off the first 300, I found out my current Ao1,000 (It's ~34.8 seconds right now)
Any way i finished my PB avg of 100 last night and brought my (self made) Kinch up to about 10.25, compared with ~6.5 a month ago.

17.08 OH avg 50

I haven't practiced in a really long time, so its nice to know that i haven't gotten significantly slower.
There were 3-4 13s also, and a dozen or so 15s.
FMC 2019/Blind N' Feet 2019 doesn't have OH but oh well.
Time to practice BLD again

E: continued on the ao50, rolling it to a 16.6.
16.9 ao100, 15.8 ao12 and 15.0 ao5, 13.95 mo3, 12.0 single. Good stats. Session is still at 17.1 so that's annoying. Also, it only takes out the best and worst single solves, not 5%, so it would be a little bit lower because there were plenty of +5 second (21.9) solves and no -5 (11.9) second solves. Easy 16.8, maybe 16.7

also a 4:21[~3:00] success and a 3:47[~2:48] DNF by two un memoed edges, on the train

Kept rolling the session. At 181 now

OH PBs in mo3 and ao50. I haven't had any of these in a really long time, but this is the first session that I've done in what feels like a year.

single: 11.47 - 1.37 off
mo3: 13.10 - ooh PB by .39
ao5: 14.40 - not even close
ao12: 15.58 - .08 off
ao50: 16.26 - pb by .19
ao100: 16.64 - .02 off, rolling will be hard


I need to figure out a way to export these to cstimer so I can get "real" averages.


E: exported to cstimer and did 200 more solves.

ao50: 16.02
ao100: 16.45

boi sub 16 is within sights

I got a sub 50 megaminx average in comp which is definitely my biggest cubing accomplishment ever

I think I will do a little break now then I will come back and rush sub 20 as fast as I can

Four sub-3:30 7×7×7 solves in a row in the weekly comp. (The fifth solve was a 3:42, which is still 12 seconds better than my global average.)

Pretty insane considering that I get sub-3:30 singles only around 1% of the time (6/497 solves in my csTimer session).

5.57 3x3 pb yayyyy

Im too lazy to capitalize everything so just imagine the notation is capitalized

u2 l f2 l’ b2 r f2 l b2 f2 d2 b2 d’ l’ u f d2 u b2 r2

x2 u’ f2 r’ d f’ d

I think you can figure out the rest. I use two look oll for that case because i knew it would permute corners

I can see that you've got a great F2L, but I have no idea what the rest is or what the last layer would be.
Here are some of my solutions, all of which give different last layers:

Solution 1 - 23 HTM, 29 QTM

Solution 2 - 24 HTM, 30 QTM

Solution 3 - 26 HTM, 31 QTM

*I'm not bothering with LL solutions, so that's why movecount is so low*


PS: there's this cool thing called caps lock, so you won't have to hold shift to make the letters capitalized

As for the rest of your post, the third link is correct and then i did the ollcp into a uperm.

I'm always on desktop/laptop so I'm always on a keyboard. But still, isn't there caps lock on mobile?
