Got an official 4BLD success yesterday, on my first official attempt ever! 20.xx min because I went ultra safe, but still got me 2nd place and NR #9.

I'm super pumped for the upcoming BigBLD competitions, especially Nationals in July. I'll give some more focus to 3BLD in the coming weeks however because of my next comp, which won't have any Multi or 4/5BLD either.

Normal time but interesting solution I somehow came up with!

I got a 2/3 MBLD in ~20 minutes a few days ago, the last cube was off by 1 corner letter pair (WC). This means I'm getting better I guess!! I'll probably go for 4 when I feel like it, my current PB is 2/2 in ~12 minutes

5BLD PB
16:10 [8:56]
Removed almost 8 mins from earlier PB.

Really happy with this PB as I rarely do 5BLD.( 9th attempt till now 6 success and 3 DNFs)

New MBLD PB! 5/5 in 26:53.73 Much faster then I thought is was going to be, but is could have been a couple minutes faster if I did not have as many pauses.
Next step/ goal is 7/7.

My successful 7x7x7 BLD solve this week makes a total of 50 successful 7x7x7 BLD solves I've done for the Speedsolving.com Weekly Competition! (That's admittedly only true if you count the regular 7x7x7 speedsolves that I did as BLD solves back during the couple of years when 7x7x7 BLD was not a proper event for the competition. If you don't count those, it's only 32 successful solves. But I think they should count. )
