Competition day tomorrow!!!!
I’m on the way down with my dad at the moment. I’m staying with my dads friend tonight and Saturday night. Hopefully the comp goes well. I’ll keep this thread updated during the weekend.

Welllll, I didn’t really practice much because of schoolwork. I can really only practice on the weekends, and that’s probably what I’ll have to do for the rest of the school year unfortunately. This year is the year that I have something called the junior cert in Ireland. It’s an exam in school. After this year I have a doss year so I’ll be able to practice more maybe from July onwards. I do think I’ve improved a bit still, even if I’ve dis improved a bit in 3x3 2H. Hopefully I’ll get a 25 or sub25 average. If so I’d be happy. Thanks for asking bro!

Edit: I’m also hoping to buy a 54mm Dayan guhong pro which I’ll hopefully use for OH

So I’m back from my comp now. It went absolutely amazing, especially since I haven’t been practicing too much lately. So in day 1 I competed in 2x2, 4x4, 3x3 OH, skewb, and square-1. In 2x2 nothing special happened apart from the PR average in round-2 which was a big jump from my previous PR of 4.16. I don’t really care about 2x2 at the moment though. 4x4 went really well for me. In round 1, I got a PR average of 57.09 and a PR single of 48.94. Then in round 2 i destroyed my PR average from round 1 with a 52.34 average. I am delighted with my performance at 4x4 this competition. For 3x3 OH, I did pretty well. I got a PR average of 25.46 and PR single of 20.57. I was happy with this, but unfortunately I missed finals by 0.02 seconds. For skewb I don’t care but I did make second round (not finals). Finally, In square1, which I competed in for the first time I was hoping to make the cutoff of 45 seconds. In the first solve I dnf’ed so I had one last chance to make cutoff. The scramble was easy but at one point I thought I had parity but I didn’t so I did the alg and ruined the solve so I didn’t get an average.
Day 2 also went really well. I competed in 3x3, 5x5 and pyraminx. In 5x5 I got a PR single of 2:09.88 and I also got my first ever 5x5 average in competition with an average of 2:17.14. In pyra, I did pretty well with a decent average and single of 7.38 and 4.25 respectively. Not PR’s but still good for me. I didn’t make finals. Finally for 3x3, this was just crazy. Keep in mind that leading up to the comp I hardly practiced at all. In the first round I got an OK average: 12.65. I thought this was decent considering I didn’t practice. Then in the second round, I went complete Beast mode. In the first solve I got my first sub 10 single in comp with a 9.05. This was crazy enough and I had a funny reaction. I then got a 10.50 which was good. Then in solve 3, I got a 9.26. I couldn’t believe it. A counting 9!!! I followed these up with a 12 and a 10 resulting in a 10.18 average. This was actually insane for me. This placed in 6th in round two which I was very happy with. In finals, I got 2 more sub 10’s!!! I was delighted and I ended up with an 11.32 average which was very good.
All in all it was a great comp. I did excellent in almost every event and I’m very happy. Bye for now!

Today I got a laptop. I haven’t had one in a while so this was my first session in a few months. Believe it or not I’m actually not that much worse than what I was when I was practicing. I did 115 3x3 solves. My best ao100 was 12.49 which is about a second slower than my overall pb. My best single today was an 8.46. I also got 10 sub 10’s which I think is quite good. I might improve a good bit once I get more consistent due to practice. Now I am about to do some other events. Bye

I ended up doing a bit of OH with my new Dayan guhong pro and I was doing really well despite it being a bit too fast. I put a bit on silk in it a while ago but it was still too fast so I will lube it with weight 4 in the coming days. I got an 18 second single and many low 20’s
