Today I broke my 5x5 PB with a 1:13.76
A little while after that I had a REALLY good solve.
I didn't look on the timer but I knew it was good so I was shaking doing the OLL. Then I got an anti clockwise U-Perm and missed the M2' at the end, I only did M' -> DNF
The time was 1:07.50 :-(

30 moves/7.37s = 4.07 TPS

I average 10, so 4.07 TPS is trash. This lucky of a solve should have been a 5 easy. My PB is 6.48.

predicted the pll skip but not the auf, finished oll at 5.5, stopped the timer at 6.4 still not having done the auf

Today I choked a very good solve and failed potential sub-7.5. FML.

Basically what happened is that I locked up on my sune, which got me into a bad grip to the U-perm and then ruining the rest of the solve. Whatever, it's not like it's my first time...
