I've been able to solve the 3x3 since I was about 9. Last week I turned 40. I've been on the Friedrich method for about three weeks now and am averaging just under 75 seconds (average of 12) but despite doing solve after solve I don't seem to be getting quicker.

That in itself doesn't really worry me, but I don't know if I should be seeing an improvement or if I should relax and wait for a month or two to see my times improve. I have learned the 2 look OLLs and PLLs but only learned the F2L intuitively. I probably lose time looking for the pairs and sometimes I don’t match them as quickly as I should do.

I’m also not very quick on the cross, but I’m working on that.

Should I be learning the F2L algorithms, or just practicing and practicing?

I feel like I’m getting quicker all the time (I don’t always time myself) but then when I use the timer it seems to be the same.

Any tips would be gratefully received.
