Accomplishment of the week, having a standard deviation higher than your average.

Seriously though, i had a good group of solves on Saturday including a 5 year 3x3PB of 25.2 and 4x4PB of 2:47.12, my only sub 3 ever. I also started a project i thought would be fun, making a massive spreadsheet of my historical data, first 103 solves below. I obviously need to improve on consistency but i saw progress, felt happy, and had fun.

I always told myself that I wouldn't start on other puzzles besides the 3x3, but then I bought a budget megaminx on a whim. Got my first timed solve which took 17.5 minutes, gahaha!

three by three
PB ao1000: 13.74 → 13.70
weekly comp PB average: 12.65 → 12.29

Also been grinding some seven by seven but it's going to take a while to push all these sup-3:55 solves out of the rolling ao100.

e: And 555:
single 1:10.55 → 1:08.485 (ZBLL was a Niklas)
ao50: 1:27.328 → 1:24.824
ao100: 1:27.700 → 1:25.918
ao200: 1:29.375 → 1:27.478

Nice drops all around.

1:45.41 5x5 PB single by 7 seconds with parity! I just got lucky on edges and got about 30 seconds for centers. I’ve been going for sub 1:50 for a while, so this is really good. I also got a PB 1:56 average. This was two days ago.
