Hi I'm really happy to share some progression I've made on 7x7 in a very long time! I've gotten back into making progress on big cubes after a taking multiple hiatuses for the past 1 year. For background, I've been cubing for 4.5 years and my main event is 7x7.

I decided to post a thread because it is my first time making progress on big cubes in almost 1 full year. Back in 2021, I hit a wall and my 7x7 global average plateaued around 3:05. Moreover, I was busy with university and as a result, this made me not as motivated to practice big cubes as much. Only recently in July, I went for my first WCA competition in 3 years and got a 3:01/2:51 official mean/single for 7x7. Link to my WCA profile: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/persons/2019HOON01. This revived my motivation to practice properly again.

Just within the last 3 weeks:
a). I was able to get my global average down from 3:04-3:05 to 2:57-2:58.
b). I broke my PB mo3 as shown below. Previously it was 2:49.07 from 2021.

mean of 3: 2:47.38

Time List:
1. 2:37.51
2. 2:47.01
3. 2:57.63

c) I also managed to get my PB2 single of 2:35 on cam! It was quite close to my PB single is 2:34.24 which was from year 2021. Feel free to critique if you wish to!

My long term goal is to be able to average around 2:30 on 7x7.
