~84 moves in 12.34 secs = 6.8 TPS

-------------------

triple post, wut, this:

your session is sub24 and over 50%, at about 25 solves... but then you get 10 dnfs in a row with only one success, of 26.x seconds... then you keep failing all your 22s by 1 wrong move and now your session says 17/38 24.15

Shameful DNF. Not about the result itself, but more like about my duuuuuuumb execution.

Nerves might have played a minor role, but in no way I'll use them as an excuse. My overall execution is bad and I should feel bad.

So, yeah. I'm already back at working on my corner comms, and trying to improve my TPS during edges in the meantime.

Lol, I went to a comp last weekend and had 2 DNFs and then a 1:02 with a 20 second pause lol. My pb in comp is only 57. I practiced so long and hard I should have gotten at least a sub-40.
I've been thinking about how in the world I did soooooo badly. I think it was just nerves and the inability to concentrate ;p :(
I decided that I'm going to start to walking up to people and just doing a bld solve since I usually get more butterflies doing that then in comp lol.

Made a mistake during the second-last corner comm, the rest was fine :(
I think this is my fastest attempt so far.

I just did a 10 cube MBLD attempt, but I only got 8/10. The reason for this post in the BLD failure thread is because the only piece that I forgot to solve on both cubes was the "bld" corner :D. Had I remembered how to solve them "bld" it would have been 10/10. Also, memo was pretty slow.
