Round 152
Average: 24.43


Times:
32.60, 23.35, 19.04, 24.75, 23.18, 27.40, 23.33, 25.56, 25.96, 24.63, 25.28, 20.84

I am amazed that this average was not much worse. I started off with what would have been a good time, had I not screwed up the cross... The 11th solve would also have been very nice had I not done the wrong OLL the first time. All things considered; I'm happy with the 24.xx.

Round 153
21.56
(19.14), 21.94, 23.20, 22.52, 20.62, 19.60, 22.97, 20.05, 24.88, 19.72, (26.27), 20.06

I guess the good news is that this felt like a bad average, yet it was way sub-22. I've gotten faster with the Zhan Chi, but I'm still not sub-20.

Round 153
Average: 24.57


Times:
24.38, 27.58, 24.39, 26.21, DNF(23.73), 27.04, 26.10, 23.34, 19.47, 20.94, 22.98, 22.71

It seems that I always start out rough and equalize things toward the end. Not a great average, but pretty good considering the DNF.

Round 153
Average of 12: 20.25

1. 18.00
2. 20.20
3. 25.77
4. 17.80
5. 20.84
6. 21.54
7. 19.11
8. (16.02)
9. (27.12)
10. 21.26
11. 19.36
12. 18.58 pll skip!

I have no clue how this happened, before this I was averaging my usual 23-24 seconds when BAM! I all of a sudden get my PB average of 12 :p I broke my PB average of 5 within the first 5 solves, and then I broke it again after a few more solves! Also got a nice 16.02 solve that was a tad bit lucky during f2l, and I had a half oll skip (I use 2 look oll). I would be very surprised if I get a sub 21 average next round, as I think this was just a case of good luck.
