Haven’t been able to cube as much as I’d like this past week. Lots of assignments and projects to work on. Megaminx has been progressing well—got a pb single and average yesterday.

Bought weight 5 for my cubes to try. It feels amazing in my megaminx. Next is to lube my new cloncc with it. Also bought the MGC SQ-1, which seems promising!

Decided to start learning freeslice on 5x5. I’d like to make cutoff for a comp and maybe qualify for nats. Thus far, my best time with freeslice is 2:20.xx

Anyone have advice for remaining centers on Yau after making the first 3 edges? I’ve been doing nothing but 5x5 these last couple of days, and I think I should focus on 4x4 a bit too.

Just try and spam TPS while being careful to not like mess up the edges or pop (remember to turn the left side accordingly)
