If anyone is still following the journey (doubt that anyone is) but I decided that I won't do timed ao5 solves for three days. I went back and checked my previous times and realized that I'm, in fact, REALLY close to sub 20. I would like to focus on my cross to f2l transition since it kinda sucks and it actually helped my times. So see you in three days with an ao12. Hopefully, I see some improvement.

Pretty happy about this ao5. I applied "chill turning" (brody fans might know what I mean) to my solves and it actually worked.

If anyone could reply, is doing an ao100 accurate for finding your 3x3 average? Or should I do an ao500?
