Hi I'm a 12 year old cuber (7th Grade) from the U.S.

I currently average:
25 seconds 3x3 Goal: Sub 20
8 seconds 2x2 Goal: sub 5
1:45 4x4 Goal Sub 1:20
and lastly 15 seconds Skewb Goal: Sub 10

I also want to learn SQ-1 and BLD but they hurt my brain

And stealing an idea from Running for Cube I'll add some running progress in here too.

1 mile: 6:10 Goal : none
2 mile: 13:15 Goal none
5K: 19:54 Goal: sub 19:30 and consistently sub 20

Wow! Those are like, EXACTLY my goals and times. I'm a bit better on skewb (~9 seconds) and a bit worse on 4x4 (~2:30), but except that, we're pretty much the same! (I'm also 12!).

Ok here is todays update:
So I ran a 5K today in 21:40 but I'm happy with that because... I was running into the wind the whole time, It was snowing heavily, there was an inch of snow on the ground, I hadn't run in a week.

Okay now for cubing... or skewbing.
So now I know half of permutating the top layer in Sarah's Intermediate. Hopfully this week I learn the second half.
Todays times are all PB's:
single 7.17
mo3 10.77 (counting 9!!!!)
ao5 11.22
ao12 13.10
ao25 13.75
ao50 15.10 ( almost sub 15!!!!!!)

Okay. I haven’t tried it before (I have the Wingy V2) but most lubes would probably work. Also, I use the beginner’s method for skewb, and I average about 8-9 seconds, so I don’t think you really need to learn the Sarah’s Intermediate method to get sub-10. You just need to have around 3 TPS and be efficient with your first face. If you want you could send me a video of a solve (or average) or we could do a Zoom to see how I can help you reach your skewb goal. :)
