That's how grinding works for the first little bit. Think of what happened when you first started solving cubes. You'd get faster really really quickly for the first little bit, then it would start to slow down.
I guess so… when I first started learning CFOP, my times peaked to like 1:30 (I was around 50-60s at the time) and then dropped to mid-30s over the course of like a week…and of course one year later and I’m barely sub-30

So, I've done 5 days of megaminx so far, and in that time I e made some great progress by my standards anyway.
So, this next week, I'm going to do zero time solves. I want to prioritize learning algs, watching walkthroughs and learning new techniques.
Also, I'm going to re-learn the m2 algs and how the method works.
Great idea. My advice would be to focus on lookahead and efficiency more than learning algs since they will help your times way more.

Well, disregard everything up there ^
SCS is having a comp in October, so I'm going to be grinding 3x3 for hopefully a podium. Idk what kinda competition there will be, but I'd like to bring my average down to low 9 at least.
So, priority is on Cross+1 and F2L efficiency
Wait how do you know they are having a comp.
It's not on the wca website.
