For the past 5ish days I've been stuck at 14.3 but after having someone else tell me to slo down turning (already knew I needed to do it just needed it hear it from somewhere else) my turning became slo but my solves fast. Whole buncha pb's

ao5 - 12.23
ao12 - 12.77
ao100 - 13.83
ao200 - 13.99
ao2000 - 14.99
I also got pb's for ao25,50,1000 but they weren't milestones so not worth including imo

on my neverending quest for improvement I have found two milestones to pass in the future

ColorfulPockets -"comfortably sub-13"
Chris Tran - 11.55 (one of his more recent videos featured a solving session)
Feels really good to be improving again, and using some nicer algs that are being found constantly (ty OreKehStrah)

Some big changes lmoa

Lot of activity around CT, Noobcuber came back from a coma and Yoruba is genning plenty of algs. Lovely.

I've had to move to mobile. I did not export my 3600 solve session. So, new averages. Already got my ao100, 13.64 at first but was 13.57 at its lowest.

As per Yoruba's suggestion, I'm doing eo into cross as opposed to regular eocross. To make it easier to plan. I'll work on effeciency later, maybe if I'm knocking on the door of sub-10.

Spent yesterday doing most my solves on cam. Before it started recording I got one 9.7. On cam I managed to get this 9.46 where I recognised I would get PLL so it could be counted as ZZ-C if you wanted to. I also got This tragic 9.11 DNF. If I didn't pause, have low tps, lockup, and get a DNF... Well... At my normal pace it would've been 7.3 or 7.4 which would have been wb.

So here's the link to the new CT WB, by yours truly. Yes, this does count as I recognised TSLE and not last pair, and PLL is a part of ZZ-CT.

My ao500 is <13.2 which is cool, but I'm getting stuck at 13.1/13.2. I plan to fix this by working on my lackluster turning and sloppy lookahead by doing a lot of practice solves that are slow, pauseless, and with accurate turning.

*I'm not dead*

Forcing myself to be less lazy in inspection, to cube more, drilling and updating TTLL algs.

New PB ao5. Don't know how. Don't know when. Didn't realise it happened until just now when I checked what my pb was.
