Out of curiosity, what goal are you trying to achieve, such as sub 25, 20, 15? If you would like to let me know I add it to the spreadsheet that I have going for this thread. Thanks

//Coments

I wanted to do comments for some weeks but now I do it. Got Parity on 8 or 7 of them, two of which were unavoidable Opp-Swaps so this is a rather good Round for me. Got though sub 18 and I don't want too big steps currently so my next goal is Sub 17. This is completely Sub 20, which I haven't gotten today(I usually do 50+ solves a day).

No I did not enter the same average twice, it is just very consistent from me.
I used to worry about this when I started competing in the weekly competition because I kept getting skechy times like 19.99, 1:23.40 and so on
