That's a nice improvement!
Yeah I think I hit the cubing equivalent of a growth spurt

Again, I will have to primarily use handscrambles.
Um, improvement nearly nonexistent.

I'll update this post every every 100 solves with the separate averages until I hit sub-60 or something.

Or you could join the megaminx race to sub-X.

Cool, a and b both done.

I've tried counting the moves on westlund and balint solves that i've done, and they seem to be about the same as zz-spike, but I'm not very good at either of those methods, so it's not an entirely accurate representation.
You're pretty fast and I was wondering if you could count the moves in a couple of your solves just to see what you get.

Just S2L or whole solves?

whole solves, if you can
I just counted 3 solves and got

F2L+Spike - - -50, 48, 46
EO - - - - - - -12, 12, 17
Rest of S2L - -78, 57, 81
LL - - - - - - - -35, 38, 18
Total - - - - - 175, 155, 162

I don't know if this is utterly horrible, standard or good. It's about the same as the solves I get with other methods though.

Haven't solved in a while, may be worse than usual, hopefully the low TPS helps that.

F2L----47, 54, 51

New marathon!
I just got back into Feet and I want to get significantly faster.

Similar to my megaminx post, I'll just update with each ao100

My goal for the end of the year is sub-40 global, but I think if I practice consistently, I might be able to hit that before school starts. For now, though I'm just going for sub-45

Next goal:
Puzzle: 6x6
Starting average: Current Ao100 is 6:52.55
Solves: min 43; Ao100
Goal: 5:30
Ok, so I started this at solve #410 in my 6x6 session on cstimer, and 90 solves in my rolling Ao100 is 6:02.32. Progress, but I'm not going to cut another 30 seconds in the next 10 solves. So since I'm at an even 500 solves I'm going to set a new goal:

Puzzle: 6x6
Starting Average: 6:02.32
Solves: min 50, Ao1000
Goal: Sub-4:30 Ao1000
This one might take a while.

Update:
135 solves into this Ao1000 I have a rolling Ao100 of 5:40.03. I doubt I'll make a sub-4:30 Ao1000, so I'm changing my goal: sub-4:30 Ao100, with a sub-4:00 Ao5 and sub-3:30 single. Current PB single stands at 4:33.36.

Update 3/22/19:
at 1250 solves, Ao1000 stands at 5:25.80, Ao100 at 4:49.26. PB single is 3:41.13
