It’s just how you feel really. Imo ao100s aren’t enough, but they’re a sure sign that you’re improving. Ao500 is good enough I think.
Maybe do 2 ao100s with a day’s break in between to see the consistency?
true, I do ao100s but I don't think it's enough.

Maybe do 2 ao100s with a day’s break in between to see the consistency?
I never thought of that actually, I tend to do ao100s in one sitting and idk why lol. But ty for the suggestion I'll definitely try that.

Congrats! Just so you know, that’s commonly called a pure sub-X average. So, without that 22, you would have had a pure sub-20 average of 12.

Hey guys! For the next 5-7 days, I'll be timing ao500. I said at the end of the month I'll do an ao100. I decided to do it today because yk I'll be busy timing an ao500. And I must say, I got an ao100 of 18.31!! My best single in this session is 12.32 and my worst was 23.37 which is pretty ok for me. 17% of my solves were above 20, which is almost half of what I got last month (33% of my solves were above 20). Hopefully, by next month, my ao100 shaves off one second. And maybe I can get 10-12% of my solve over 20 secs.

I think you should continue and maybe try for sub 15! although i could see if you were burnt out from doing so much 3x3 already!
I think I can get sub 15 by learning full oll and some other techniques. lol, I really burnt out by 3x3, but I might do 4x4 and learning oll together so I can have a break from each cube once in a while :D

So guys, as you can see in the newly edited thread title, I think I already reached my goal. I'm still going to be doing an ao500 to see how accurate my avg is on 3x3. But, first off I wanna say thanks to everyone for helping me out in this journey. I never thought I'll get this goal in less than 2 months, to be frank. I woke today and got a 16.37. I'm consistently getting most of my solves under 20 seconds. Last month my worst time in a session was about 25-27 seconds. After a month, it is now 23 seconds. Many of you said that I already reach this goal and that I'm fully sub 20. And yes, I might continue this thread. Not only for 3x3, but also for other events. My new main goal is now to learn yau on 4x4. After I do an ao500, I'll talk more about this goal. And yes, I'm might try to go for sub 15 on 3x3 (thanks to @scrubizilla for the idea). I'll go more in-depth on my newer goals later, but for now, thank you to everyone who supported me with some very nice words :)
