7.92, (7.15), 7.73, (9.30), 8.17 = 7.94 avg5

My favorite part of this video aside from how good you are at cubing is your reaction when you realize you just got a new PB at the end of the five solves haha.

heh, haven't reacted like that in a while...

I was really happy because I could have easily blown it on the last solve. I wouldn't have gotten a sub 8 average if the last solve was slower than 8.35 seconds. So I was really happy that I didn't screw up.

This isn't actually my PB (PB is 7.75) but its my PB on video by a fair bit (0.44 is quite a big difference at this speed).

Thanks!

very nice average, especially on video. it seems like were are very similar in speed.
Thanks! I think you've been improving much faster than me though. You're probably going to surpass me pretty soon...
