First ever sq-1 timed solve! I did search some of the algs up, the cube shape was very difficult, i got an easy m2 slice case for edges, and 1 layer was already solved lol.

I kinda stopped learning OLL's cuz I got a bunch of exams this month, so hopeully once my school ends, which should be the 26th, i'll get back to learning OLL.

Goals Before Competition:

• Learn Full OLL, Awkward Shape, Dot cases, and some I forgot/need to learn better algs for
• Get All OLLs to at least sub 5, at most sub 3.
• Practice F2L
Get Sub 20!

Already getting a lot of sub 20 solves, with some 20-23's. I have until August 1st, the day of the competition to get these accomplished.

Edit: I am only doing 3x3, mostly because that's the event I want to get better at, I won't be doing the other events, 2x2, 3x3OH, and skewb, but I'll be in NJ at the time, so I have to wake up at like 3 to get ready and leave at 5, for a long drive.

Are you using a trainer for practicing your OLL recall or just spamming with an alg sheet? I believe using a trainer is essential to effectively learning and being able to execute full OLL. Learning the algs is only half the battle.
