Ok
ok so ive been improving a fair amount but i havent been able to cube barely at all because ive had insane amounts of soccer, school, etc,
although ive gotten about 100 sub 10s which is satisfieing, i think i can get sub 10 by the end of march or early april!

Ive been averaging low 11/11.5 lately and ive been getting enough 10s that its pretty much "normal" which is really awesome!
Don't count your chickens before they hatch (Easter joke or something...)

I thought the same thing you did when I was averaging 11.5

After one year and one second improvement I feel the pace of my learning has significantly decreased. It's not as easy to shave off the seconds anymore as it was before...

The one thing that I did that I regret though is that I didn't focus as much as I should have on actual focused practice for weaknesses of mine. I just thought "If I've been getting better this whole time, why should it stop now?"

If I can tell anyone one thing it's try your best to eliminate bad habits and keep your knowledge ahead of your skill level.

So basically, don't get cocky and JUST do solves.
