Okay, I finished 3x3 and Pyraminx. Got a 12 average for Pyraminx, but got 17th when the top 16 go to finals. Got 25 average for 3x3, but I'm disappointed because I got 2 31s, but started off good with 2 22s and a 23. Not sure if I'm going to the next round for that yet.
After lunch is clock.

Kind of disappointing, I did horrible in clock an got a DNF average with only a 15 second best single. I was literally averaging 13 before I competed 🤦. I did get a 21 single and a 23 average in 3x3 though, so that's good.

Ok, now that the comp is over I have some new personal goals.

2x2: Sub-6 average
3x3: Sub-20 average
4x4: Sub-2 average
5x5: Don't know if I'll do it much, but maybe sub-4 average
Pyraminx: Sub-10 average
Clock: Sub-10 average

I might buy some new events too, like megaminx or skewb. I'll probably focus the most on 3x3, 4x4, and Clock.

There is going to be another comp near me soon I believe, so I might go to that too (I believe it will be in October, and hopefully I can convince my parents to let me go).

I'm honestly not sure where to start on 3x3 and clock. I know I have to learn PLL for 3x3, but I don't think that'll get me sub-20. Does anyone have any other tips, and how long do you think it'll take to get sub-20 (if I practice at least an hour a day?). Also, I've been averaging 13-15 seconds on clock, but idk how to decrease my times. Is getting a Qiyi clock the only way to get sub-10?

Kinda but it is also just grind. If you want to get there really easy, learn noflip and rotating with x2

Okay thanks! I'll make sure to practice and perfect my turning and methods, but I might also buy a Qiyi clock from cubezz because it is cheaper there and I don't necessarily need it to come quickly.
