Weekly update:

This week I focused mostly on Square one and Clock, I also did some Megaminx and am averaging around 52-53 when I am completely neutral on what color I start on and what direction I rotate in my S2L.

I am averaging low 9 now on clock, and around 22 on squan.

I probably will get a sub 9 average of 100 later today.

Haven't been doing a bunch of OH lately because my finger is fully healed now and OH isn't something I find extremely fun. YruRU makes it more fun though so I will probably start practicing it again soon.


EDIT: Oh I should probably add that I got a custom critique from @Zubin Park, when that is ready I will try to get my times back on 3x3.


EDIT 2: Ahh here we go

Now that my clock is as fast I want it to be I am going to go back to grinding for S2L neutrality although this time with a new approach. Instead of just solving and making sure I don't start with yellow I am going to be scrambling only the S2L and solving one specific color over and over again until it is as fast as with yellow. I will then do this with all the colors.

Still working on 5x5, averaging around 1:30.

I have been getting worse at squan :( I average around 24 now which doesn't make sense considering I have done more solves. Does anyone know what I can do to improve at squan? I don't really know what I should be working on to get faster.

Also I will keep practicing clock and probably will grind it again once I am neutral with my S2L.

I competed in the comp Micah and I were hosting today (Cubing with Corona 4) and I did pretty good. I got an 8.7 average on clock which isn't terrible considering every other comp I have done with clock I have DNFd. I got 4th place (top 3 get giftcards) on 3x3 I did decent in the 2nd round with a 9.8 average which made the H2H finals surprisingly! I got 4th in the H2H (again, top 3 get giftcards) And for Megaminx I did pretty good and got a 45.90 average, which of course, was 4th place :(

Those were the only 3 events I competed in as I didn't have time for 5x5 or OH because I was busy running the comp.

I haven't been doing super consistent weekly updates, I have been just posting whenever something exciting happens. I will try to start doing updates every week.

Week 3

This week I was mostly practicing Megaminx and Squan. I dropped my squan times to mid 19.

I am getting very close to completely getting rid of my S2L order. I am familiar with all the colors, I just need to do lots of solves to get used to picking which one to do and which direction to go.

This upcoming week I am going to try to get my 3x3 times back to where they were. I got a custom guide from @Zubin Park so hopefully that will help.

I also want to keep practicing Megaminx and get my normal times with no S2L order by the end of this month.
