I was in the car doing some squan, ad I think I might be sub 15 now! I'm not 100% sure that I'm sub 15 on squan, but a 12.12 ao12, 13.3 ao25, and a 14.24 ao50 convince me that I'm improving in squan.

EDIT: Now I have a sub 15 ao100!

How do you have time to practise much in the car?
idk I pretty much just do solves the whole time I'm in the car, I can get a lot more solves done than I think I would if I'm focused for 20 to 30 minutes
And how come you never crash?
I'm obviously not the person driving the car when I cube

I've been working a lot on 6x6 and squan lately, and it seemed like only a couple days ago when I got my first sub 15 ao100 on squan. Now I already have a sub 14 ao100 on squan! Also my 6x6 has improved a lot in the past few days, I used to say I averaged 2:15 but now I'm basically sub 2:10!

I want to become a decent all-rounder by the end of the year, and what I mean by "decent" many people probably consider legendary lol, but I want to have a chance of podiuming in every event when official comps start back up. Here are my all-rounding goals for when official comps start back up:

2x2: Learn full CLL and EG-1, sub 3 global, current avg: high 4
3x3: Sub 8 global, (or at least very low 8) current avg: 8.4-8.5
4x4: Sub 30 global, current avg: 31.5-32
5x5: Sub 1:00 global, current avg: 1:03
6x6: Sub 1:55 global, current avg: 2:03
7x7: Sub 3:00 global, current avg: 3:15 (gonna practice this one a lot when I get the MGC7)
Squan: Sub 12 global, finish full CSP and be able consistently trace in under 15 seconds, current avg: 13.5 with 70/90 CSPs, takes me about 18 seconds to trace
Mega: Sub 55 global, current avg: 1:01
Clock: Sub 8 global, current avg: 12
OH: Sub 16 global at least, learn good OH pll and oll algs, current avg: 17.5-18
3BLD: Sub 1:20 global and be able to expect myself to get at least one success in comps, current avg: sub 1:40 if I don't mistrace
Pyra and Skewb: I don't like these events too much, so I don't want to put a lot of effort into them, but I think sub 5 on each should be relatively easy (also that podiums at official comps because the southeast is bad at side events lol)
4BLD: Sub 10:00 Success, current avg: Sub 15:00 if the memo isn't too hard, still don't have a success though:(
5BLD: Sub 30:00 Success, current avg: only have done 1 attempt which was a massive fail lol but it took around 45 minutes
MBLD: Be able to do 10 cubes without too much difficulty and get a minimum of 7 solved, current PB: 3/5 in approx. 41 minutes
FMC: Learn intermediate techniques like NISS and insertions and be consistently sub 35 moves, current avg: 35-40

Nice man! One thing that helped me was to focus on your worse events first and get them to a level you are happy with. Of course, you don't want to be like me and completely forget about your good events, you still want to practice them lightly while focusing on your not so great events.
Good luck - I mean good skill - on your journey to achieve these goals!

Yeah. I think the race to sub x threads are a great way to not go out of practice for events that you're not focusing really hard on at the moment, since you get to do 5 or 12 solves every week.

As much as I would hate to have you nemesize me, if You want any tips for skewb or FMC you can message me and I can give some advice. I average 5 flat on skewb and low 30s in FMC.
