Crud I was going to practice Feet, FMC, and BLD because that's all my next comp has but it is so on.

So like a 15.85 ao100 or just any sub 16 ao100?
It can't be official because Advay already has a (lucky?) 15.18.
Ao100 aren't very accurate to your avg, imo. I like to go by Ao1000. But we can go by Ao100 if you like. Let's move this to DMs, also.

sub 40 3x3 a05!!!
(45.73),(34.76),40.49,43.19,35.25=39.64
in other news i will probably buy the mf3rs3m as the mf3rs is apparently very bad in comparison to the later models and my fingers kinda hurt after using it for too long
EDIT:finally i am sub 50,49.94 ao100. my times went up when i hit 50.30 but i am glad to see they went back down :)

The FitnessGram Pacer Test is a multi stage...
I guess I got my first sub-20 Ao5 a few days ago:

Average: 19.48
Best: 18.69
Worst: 25.24
Mean: 20.48
Standard Deviation: 2.43

1: (25.24) D2 B2 D' F2 R2 B2 R2 D2 F2 D' U2 R' B2 D' U2 F L' D U R
2: 20.20 D L2 U' B2 U' B2 L2 D L2 F2 D' L F' D2 L2 F' L F2 R B' U2 R2
3: 19.19 F' L2 F' L2 U2 F D2 F2 L2 U2 F2 D U' F' R2 U' R2 D2 R' B2 L' U'
4: (18.69) D2 F2 R2 B2 R2 U' L2 D L2 B2 L F D2 B' L U B F' D B R'
5: 19.06 R2 F2 R2 U' R2 U' F2 U R2 U B2 R' F L R2 U R2 D' B' D' U2 R'

And it was with roux! For context, I’ve been using roux since about mid March, and used CFOP before that for about 3-3.5 months. I never got a sub 20 Ao5 with CFOP.

Just started timing myself and my best average of 5 is 1:00:003. So close...

Edit: Just crushed it with a new PB of 38.232 in my very next solve. Whaaaaaaat!?!

Nice average with Roux considering the time you've been using it! I have been using roux for about 13 months now and I switched from CFOP, mainly because i just got stuck and never got pass sub 20. Roux gets more and more fun as you get faster. Good luck improving!

Wow that’s so cool, I’ve ever heard of something like that, you switch to a different method and you’re almost instantly faster! Keep going with Roux and leave CFOP behind, or if you like experimenting maybe even Skis Method ;) GL getting faster, hopefully you enjoy using Roux!
I’ve tried different methods, but haven’t tried very hard to get fast with them so here’s what I avg with each:
CFOP - 18
Hexagonal F. - 21
ZZ - 25
Petrus - 26
Beginner - 28
Skis - 32
Roux - 34
If I tried for a few weeks like you have I could maybe be faster than CFOP with any of these methods, it could really be lots of fun, and if any, most likely Hex. F, Skis, or Roux.

I decided I'm going to do 'One week of Roux'! I want to become faster with Roux, I think it'll be fun. (maybe I can even end up like ImmolatedMarmoset, but I'm not expecting it)

Congrats everyone !

So ! I took a few days of pause and it paid of because today was insane !!!
Here is the list of today's PB:
- PB Single: 15.86 >> 14.74 | Over 1 second of improvement and full step !!! http://bit.ly/1474Reconstitution Insane luck and SUB 15 !!
- PB ao5: 21.52 >> 19.51 | 2 Full seconds ! So insane :D SUB 20 !!!
- PB ao12: 22.99 >> 21.75 | 1 second ! My new ao12 is almost the same as my yesterday's best ao5 :')
- PB ao50: 24,06 >> 23,09 | 1 second again, this one is crazy because I was totally stuck x)
- PB ao100: 24,67 >> 23,69 | 1 other second here.

So today was day 73 of my cubing life and it was maybe one of the best day !

I'm also having a blast with Roux. I started with Heise, and Roux is nearly as intuitive, while also being great for speed. I never wanted to learn algorithms to solve the cube, because I would just forget them if I ever took a break. With Roux, I can speedsolve intuitively (using commutators for the corners) and I don't have to worry about learning and forgetting algorithms. M slices are also very sexy.

I feel sub-25 is very possible to do by next Friday because I improved >2 seconds in a day, but I have to keep it going to see!

At meadowlands, I got 3 podiums, now I have 10!
FMC- tied pb single of 41 and a 43.33 mean. I'm content because I don't care about FMC much.
Feet- bad average and failed a sub 30 single but still podium.
Clock- failed a sub 13 average but I have many chances next week.
Pyraminx- not sub 3, but scrambles were eh and I won so it's ok.
Skewb- utterly horrible 5 average that still somehow podiumed.
Square-1- 20.1 average, so close to sub 20. Also finally broke my 19 single from last February lol.
Megaminx- 1:03.91 average and a 1:00.35 single. Very sad
