2:57.02 single on Blindfold Race 2012-37 scramble 2
Pretty sweet stuff. Best on camera and 3rd sub3 success.
I'll upload the video later.


Now I have to do this again later. And again. And again.

7x7x7 BLD: 37:19.70 [20:32].

For weekly competition 2012-38. New PB. By 2 seconds. :) I've had several solves now within a few seconds of this - it's really funny.

My accuracy this year for 7x7x7 BLD is 10/34. I'm pretty happy with that percentage!

Calculated that my fastest time on video, 59.75, has higher STPS than Marcell Endrey's 27.65 WR. Mine was 6.65, his was 5.54. I'm pretty sure I calculated mine correctly. But then again, it's much easier to have high TPS with OP/M2 due to the many triggers of Y and J perms. Still, I'm proud.

Learning more BH, I'm learning by type. Currently trying to find out by myself all 198 pure commutators.

Finally got 3 bld successes in a row after having been doing semi-serious 3bld for about 6 months.
2:42.60 mo3
3:25.84, 2:05.94, 2:36.02

Have to see if I can get a 4th success + average of 5 later today after I go practice driving.
I feel like I'm really close to a sub2 single. My PB is (sadly) 2:05.33. This 2:05 (on cam!) is only .61 slower than that :( I'll probably still upload it later.

That seems to me you become faster and faster each day. When will you make an avg5 sub 40 ? Very good job !

Final accomplishment count of the day

Almost PB single: 2:05.94
PB is 2:05.33

First ever mo3

2:17.02 mo3 (rolled the first to get rid of a 3:25)
Times: 2:05.94, 2:36.02, 2:09.09

First ao5 (had a DNF though. Rolled it for...)

5 Successes in a row

PB ao5: 2:36.59
Time: 3:25.84, 2:05.94, 2:36.02, 2:09.09, 3:04.65


Tried to roll out that 3:25 on the ao5.
2:43 DNF by 2 edges and 2 corners.
Rage quit for the night :p

I don't remember how many solves I've done today. Somewhere between 10 and 18, but I don't know. I've never done this many solves before in one day. It's getting hard to memo stuff even on different routes, but my house is getting REALLY tiring (cycling through 3-7 rooms isn't enough I guess...)

Good day...

Switch to short term. That's what I did when I was right around your times.

I just started to do some TuRBo solves to get some averages for solving corners blindfolded only.

Avg of 5 - 15.43 seconds

I am happy with that. But i am still thinking about setup moves of course. I will get faster for sure..
