Race to sub-25
ZZ (OCLL, PLL)
Moyu Aolong V2
Ao12: 25.31

28.23, (31.61), 25.51, 26.57, 29.33, 24.78, (19.54), 20.80, 25.45, 23.96, 23.55, 24.90

Practice was looking good with most times sub-23, but made too many mistakes now when the pressure's on, particularly on the EOLine step. Meanwhile I've started learning some COLL algorithms to try improve my ZZ last layer and it probably saved me about a second on one of my solves this week.

(1) Very slow F2L
(2) Messed up EO - finished F2L like CFOP
(3) Slow on EO
(5) Slow F2L again
(7) Easy F2L
(8) COLL case
(12) Messed up Line of EOLine, but quick to fix

Round 204 - Race to sub 30
CFOP one handed

Ao12: 46.916

41.886, 59.174, (1:43.988), (30.039), 46.143, 45.743, 46.294, 43.686, 1:00.805, 39.039, 39.614, 46.774

I'm still relatively new to OH solving, so I sometimes mess up an alg, or I use a different alg to try to get a better case.

Round 205
CFOP OH
Sub 30
Avg of 12: 43.541

51.942, 40.447, 39.064, (33.175), 46.646, 43.350, (52.302), 44.647, 51.615, 36.710, 40.702, 40.286

This one went much better, but I think I can still have rapid improvement. One of the solves I had an easy ZBLL, but I messed up the alg. Fortunately when I tried to fix the F2L the cube ended up solved.

(11) Slow EOLine, but recovered with fast rest of solve

Not too terribly pleased with these times, but I am intentionally practicing more than I have in the past and I'd like to track my progress a bit more consistently. Let's see how this goes!

CFOP OH

Ao12: 38.656

A pretty good round for me. I did pretty well with the cross this time, but for the last layer there were some algs i messed up, or didn't feel confident about doing. My goal for next week is to get another sub-40 round.
