So now I can start on any color and average what I normally do as long as I rotate by doing a y. I average anywhere from 50-1:00 when I start on any color and rotate by doing a y'. I have a couple of comps this weekend and I haven't decided if I am going to solve starting on any color and rotation by doing a y or just always start on yellow like I normally do.

I am going to start updating my progress by making a new post each week instead of editing the main post. So here is this week:

I am still working on S2L neutrality, I am almost there! I am getting a lot of singles that are better than my average but I still have some solves where I build a block incorrectly. I also got a new 3x3 main, the WRM 2020 and a new OH main, the RS3M 2020 without the extra magnets. I have also been getting into clock recently and got a pb single 0f 7.23.

Generated By csTimer on 2020-08-07
single: 7.230

Time List:
7.230 UR3+ DR2- DL0+ UL4- U1+ R1- D1- L0+ ALL1+ y2 U0+ R3+ D3+ L3+ ALL0+ UR DL
(really easy scramble)

Averaging mid 10 on clock. I also bought a square one, I am excited to learn how to solve that and get fast at it.

Also @BenChristman1 I did a small pyra grind so that you wouldn't be faster than me at any event, I average low 6 now. Is that faster than you?

I have been doing less Megaminx solves lately to focus on becoming more of an all rounder. I got a sqaun and learned how to solve it, averaging around 25 now. And I did some clock solves and got a new pb average of 5 8.60!Screenshot 2020-08-11 at 1.44.26 PM.png

Getting really close to sub 10 as well.

I also did some blind attempts which as you probably know I am REALLY bad at, my best success is 45 minutes. I am averaging around 7-8 minutes now although I haven't got a success since the 45 minutes one.

I also did some 5x5 and decided to switch to Yau (not yau 5) Still pretty slow, averaging around 1:50.

I have been practicing clock and sqaure 1, averaging 23 on squan and sub 10 on clock.

Just got my first sub 7 on this crazy scramble:

Generated By csTimer on 2020-08-12
single: 6.880

Time List:
747. 6.880 UR6+ DR5+ DL1+ UL1+ U1+ R5+ D6+ L2- ALL1- y2 U0+ R2- D2- L0+ ALL3+

I also did some 3x3 solves these past couple weeks... I guess I got like a second slower?

I don't know what to react to this so I'll just laugh at it
