If you missed that round, do that and this and put it into one post.

I'm sorry, but on Wednesday through Friday I will be gone on a school trip, and there will be no wifi, so the closing time for round 14 will be on June 6th, 2011. If you like the round and the closing time to be a week apart rather than half a week apart, tell me in your posts.

I don't like the idea of a weekly average of 12 instead of the bi-weekly average of 12. You improve more if it is twice a week. It also does not take a long time to do an average of 12 on the 3x3(9-12 minutes) thus making it better to have it biweekly. Where as with something like the megaminx race thread, that takes a while to do an average of 12 so that has to be weekly, this doesn't.

Sometimes I break records outside of this thread, but not recently. 2 weeks ago and 3 weeks ago I broke my record when doing this thread and I'm sure I have done it other times. It probably is because I get determined and do a lot of warm up solves(50+) then do the 12 solves when its at the peak of turning speed and lookahead but after that I become relaxed and content so then I dont get record averages ontill next week. It is only like this with 2x2 and 3x3.

Do you expect PBs every day? You can't honestly expect a PB every average you do. You're definitely not practicing enough if you do.

Comment - Horrible. Rushed. Ragged. Crap. Would have been 19.33 without the 2 +2s, and the 29 was a pop on a u perm at 15 , so would have ended up as a 17. That would have been, assuming it was 17.99, sub19.
