My main weak point in 3BLD was corners, so I decided to try out 2BLD a little. I started last night and I can now do it! I had two successes in a row this morning and I decided to enter the weekly SS comp for 2BLD. My first two solves were DNFs, one being 5:46 and the other 5:00. My third solve the memo felt smooth and I succeeded with 2:16!

First sub-1 mean! I have a comp tomorrow so this is nice to get. Hopefully I can get a mean at the comp, since my PR mean is 1:57 from forever ago. Also I triple DNFed my last 3BLD comp so I really hope that doesn't happen again.

My comp results in the first round were 55.59, 41.16, 57.81 = 51.52 PB mean and PB single!! I also got third place in the finals with a 57.62 single! I really wanted to podium in 3BLD to keep my podium streak alive and 3BLD was the only event I had a remote chance in, but it still took a few people better than me DNFing to get it. This comp went better than I ever could have hoped!

3BLD PB single: 36.855! First sub-40!

Scramble in your orientation: F2 D2 F2 U2 R2 F2 R' D2 L' F2 U L2 R U2 R D2 B L' F D U

Memo:
Corners: IT BRought BiG GuPpy (I actually memoed GP instead of PG but it still worked lol)
Edges: VEnom World's Best at Having Fun ABs JeN UP (visual flip)

Solution:

L2 S L' F' L S' L' F L' // UF-DR-LU
R' U' R U M2 U' R' U Rw M' // UF-DB-UR
M' U L' S' L2 S L' U' M // UF-LB-LF
R2 U' S R2 S' R2 U R2 // UF-UB-UR
R U' R' E' R U R' E // UF-FR-RB
R2 F E R2 E' R2 F' R2 // UF-DF-RF
S L F' L' U M' U2 M U S' L F L' // flip UF & DL

R U R' D' R U2 R' D R U R' // UFR-FUL-BDR
R2 D' R U2 R' D R U2 R // UFR-UBR-BUL
R' D R U R' D' R U' // UFR-UBR-LDF
U R' D' R U' R' D2 R U R' D' R U' // UFR-RDF-LDF

11 algs, including an edge flip. Bad scramble but I one-passed everything and the cases were nice. There were a lot of opportunities for floating and/or canceling moves, so I still have plenty of room to improve. I got a lot of 41s so I'm really happy to get a sub-40!

Started blind practicing corners only until I get them natural. So far the best I’ve gotten is 28 seconds lol. I really need to work on my edges though.

So, I had my first competition today. I also did 3BLD, four months after my first success at home.
First round was 2:44, 2:29, DNF and in the final I got 2:28, DNF, 2:19. Succeeding in the first solve of every round allowed me to be relaxed during the other solves.
Very satisfied with that. 67% success rate is much better than at home while 2:30 on average is only slightly worse.

PB mo3, finally sub-19! Yay

25 alg scramble set which on the surface seems insane, but I'd say the first scramble is significantly more difficult than the typical 8 alg -- i did an alt pseudoswap to give better corner parity, and that ended up saving an alg in edges, and there was also a floating 2twist in that scramble

kinda crappy cases overall also, so I'm still pretty proud of this regardless of the luck :)
