Really good times today. Here are the highlights:
36.86 PB2 3BLD single (beat the 38 that I posted earlier)
48.46 PB mo3 (first sub 50)
51.88 PB ao5 (PB by 6 seconds)

The 36 single and 48 mo3 were in the 51 ao5

Bittersweet, as I almost got a really good ao12 (needed 2 more successes out of 3 solves, messed up all 3)

46.67 mo3, 46.67 ao5, 41.20 ao12 as well
My last 12 attempts:

53/56 0:59:00.00
46/54 0:59:25.00
46/56 1:01:04.00 (1 solved over the hour)
51/56 1:01:01.00 (3 solved over the hour)
40/56 0:58:39.00
43/56 1:01:24.00 (3 solved over the hour)
51/56 0:58:40.00
50/56 0:59:40.00
49/50 0:58:58.00
(edit: i should note i did an attempt here that I decided to disqualify cus there was basically a full blown party at my house that erupted right after I started the attempt and went on until the end of the attempt, seems reasonable to disqualify it because i think it would qualify for an extra if it was official lol)
47/52 1:00:12.00 (1 solved over the hour)
52/56 0:57:45.00
52/52 0:59:05.00

A counting 24 pointer, but also a counting 50 pointer lol

Another PB, though at this point I'd be happier with slower and more accurate solves.

46.47=24.01+22.45

I know full 3-style now. Just need to learn decent edge-flip technique and I'll be good to go.

Official PB mean (1:08.25, easily beatable) and single: (41.65, not so easy to beat):

So so happy with this, I guess I should start with the comms as I'm still rocking M2/U2 but I don't even know where to start or how to approach the mental breakthrough of being slower at first.

It's not often that I have something that feels worthy of posting in here lately, but this definitely does.

I really went for it on this week's Weekly Competition for 5BLD, and got a new PB mean and single. And the mean beat my previous best mean by over a minute and a half!

Scramble wasn't particularly good from an alg count perspective (lots of cycle breaks + two twisted corners), but it was relatively easy to memo, partly because all of the edges were oriented (as in, oriented for ZZ).

9 algs
Still haven't gotten around to learning edge-flips. After my next competition for sure.

I'll probably actually be excited when I get a sub-30

This weekend I got 2nd in 3BLD with a 1:57 (bad but I went safe), 1st in 4BLD with a 13:23 (safe, but nice) and 1st in multi-blind with a 6/9 in 60:00! For 5BLD I only got to do one attempt which was off by 2 centers and 3 midges. Now I’m going to start learning 3-style

Beat my old 4/4 by a minute, with a slower memo, so I can still drop this easily, just need to get the accuracy on point (and do multi more often )
Actual 3-style for corners instead of BH-ish comms helps a ton for execution
