7BLD DNF
1:06:58 [31:45/35:12]
first attempt, for the weekly comp, super safe of course
memo was perfect
recalled a wing letter incorrectly; 3 wings
3 obliques, not sure why
successfully used that wing parity alg though

did a 5BLD attempt on the Qizheng and it was 4:23 [1:37] off by 2 4-cycles of wings, a 4-cycle of corners and midges, and 2 +centers, so probably 1 move or possibly 1 move + messed up +centers

6:55[3:15] 5bld dnf by 2 xcenters
I think i did the wrong comm at one point, shot to a different piece on the U layer than I was supposed to and it caused this. Gonna keep rushing memo and trying to get that first sub-7 success

Racing Kevin to get our first 7bld successes. I think this is my 5th attempt, and probably the worst one so far :/
41:22[23:41] and its basically like the centers are 60% solved, along with a handful of wings. I solve inner x centers first, then inner + centers, and I looked at the video and there's no point where those are all solved so I'm guessing I made an execution error somewhere during those and it threw everything off.

7bld off by 5 corners, 3 midges, 6 outer wings, and 6 inner wings. First time having centers completely solved, so its super frustrating to have dnfed because of the "easy pieces". Fastest attempt by a good deal too, completely due to a fast execution. I did a sighted 7bld solve with 3 style just before this and I think that helped a ton.

7th 7bld attempt, 42:02[23:05] and off by 5 inner x-centers. Very, very annoying :/
I guess I kind of rushed inner x-centers cus i memo them last and execute them first, so ill try to avoid rushing them next time. Not sure what I messed up, but most likely switched two letter pairs.

A funny thing that happened though, i memo left obliques then right obliques, and execute the other way around, and when i was executing right obliques i did the first 8 letters that were meant for left obliques, realized it AFTER FINISHING RIGHT OBLIQUES ((( then managed to completely undo all of the right oblique comms i just did and redid right obliques and left obliques correctly lol. I really, really expected to have messed that up. So I guess I'm pretty proud of the exec time considering I probably wasted at least 4 minutes essentially doing obliques twice as much as I needed to.

13:16.10 4bld PB. Pretty bad to due slow memo (8:22) and forgetting a letter pair so I had to undo 4 pairs to solve it and then redo them I guess I will take it for now.

Second and third attempts weren't so good.
Fourth attempt was DNF by 3 obliques in 59:09[29:18/29:51].
Again, memo was perfect. Meant to do Ubl, correctly thought that I should do Ubl, but then executed Ufr for some reason (two U's instead of two Us).

I went to a comp this weekend and the first two 3BLD attempts were both off by 2 corners.
The third solve I got a 1:20 but because I couldn't remember if the this one had twisted corners and so I wasted like 35 seconds. Kind of upset but I still got third place. Second place was just over a minute and first was 36 because of the scramble (the third). If I remember it had 6 corner targets and 8 edge targets?? And one flipped edge and no cycle breaks. Will reconstruct when I get the scramble.
