There are a total of 35 events on the Speedsolving weekly competition as of 2021. They are 2x2 to 7x7, 2BLD to 7BLD, MBLD, 2-4 relay to 2-7 relay, OH, Feet, FMC, SpeedFMC, Megaminx, Clock, Pyra, Skewb, squan, FTO, Curvy Copter, Mirror Blocks, 15 puzzle, Redi Cube, Master Pyra, Mini Guildford, Kilominx and Rescramble.

I had first attempted a speedrun of all the SS events (except FMC,SpeedFMC,Curvy,Feet,7BLD) on 13th October last year, with a time of 3:45:30.62. Original post here

I used LiveSplits to time myself, similar to speed runs in video games. The speedrun was tiring but there were a lot of mistakes that I did that I do not want to do this time. In the first attempt, I did not do FMCs as I forgot about it, FTO was not introduced, I was not comfortable solving curvy copter, I gave up on 6BLD midway and I did not do feet as I had to change my camera setup, also my OBS layout was a bit offsetted which made the split times not clearly visible.

I am going to attempt another speedrun this month, and there are a few things that I am planning to do which will make this speedrun a bit more efficient:

1) Not do a livestream, as it is requires extra focus to read the chat, and handle the OBS.

2) Do 4 attempts out of the 5 for sighted events, as I will be get an average DNSing my 5th solve, unless I DNF any previous solve. Also for 2BLD-7BLD, just do one attempt and try for a success, as these events are ranked for single.

3) Try to get better in solving curvy copter, and order FTO in India. (It is not available here).

4) Try to do 5 attempts of SpeedFMC and 3 attempts of FMC, faster by typing a linear solution, and doing the linear solution on the cube OH. (Using a paper pen for these attempts will waste a bit of time, and it is better to just type in the solution).

5) Scramble the first solve of every event, so as to save the scrambling time for the first solve, and made a speedrun a bit easier on me. Don't worry, I do have multiple bigcubes, so I can setup relays and bigBLD easily.

6) Also have no inspection on all the sighted solves to save a bit of time there (even for 2x2 and Skewb)

If I do not DNF any solves, the number of solves that I will have to do and the estimated time of doing the entire 4 solves in the event are listed below.

The list in the order of the execution of the speedrun:

Doing BLD events first as the brain is fresh

1 solve

Time estimate 10 seconds

1 solve

Time estimate 25 seconds

1 solve (2 solves if 1st one is DNFed)

Time estimate 2:30

1 solve (2 solves if 1st one is DNFed)

Time estimate 5:00

1 solve

Time estimate14:00

1 solve

Time estimate 30:00

2 cubes attempt as its the fastest

Time estimate 1:10

4 solves

Time estimate 7:00

Doing FMCs next as brain is still fresh and want to do non spam TPS stuff,

3 solves

Time estimate 15:00

4 solves

Time estimate 20:00

4 solves

Time estimate 3:00

4 solves

Time estimate 2:00

4 solves

Time estimate 48 seconds

4 solves

Time estimate 4:00

4 solves

Time estimate 40 seconds

4 solves

4 solves

Time estimate 4:00

4 solves

Time estimate 8:00

4 solves

Time estimate 14:00 (will take mini breaks in between solves, to not stress my wrists too much)

4 solves

Time estimate 24:00

Events that I might fumble in as I rarely practice them,

4 solves

Time estimate 6:00

4 solves

Time estimate 20:00 (no idea as I have not attempted on a real puzzle)

4 solves

Time estimate 20:00 (no idea as I have mess up the last layer)

Relays will be faster as the cubes are already scrambled before the speedrun starts,

Time estimate 50 seconds

Time estimate 2:10

Time estimate 4:55

Time estimate 9:10

Time estimate 6:10

Total number of solves: (7+ 3 + 22*4 + 5) = 103 solves

Total estimated time: 14848 seconds or, 4 hours and 4 minutes

Do let me know what you guys feel about this ruleset I am following? Is scrambling one solve for each event beforehand logical or will it not be a complete speed run? Is doing 4 solves instead of 5, logical and be considered as a complete speed run? If I DNF 6BLD or 7BLD (there is only 1 attempt), will the speed run still be counted?
