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!

Just destroyed my 3x3 average. All full-step, too!

avg of 5: 15.80

Today’s comp went GREAT for clock. Average was alright, but I’m happy with it. I did get a 4.94 single, putting me at NAR #37 and ALMOST top 100 global. Also podiumed for the first time!

I’ll be going to another comp in January with two rounds of clock. Hoping for a good sub 6 average by then! Would be amazing to get a new single as well.

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.
