The DNF was a 31 or 33 where I did the last cycle wrong. Haven't practiced this much for a while now.

i seemed to have dropped ten seconds in the last two days. im using a new cube for BLD that i can turn fastger without popping. I'm also sub 20 on memo around 15 -20 seconds i also adapted visual memo into a whole different and unique system that also decreases the ammount of pauses during solving. i think sub 50 avg is possible. cant wait for cornell! :D

This is my first average. Not as fast as I may have hoped but I'm glad I finally managed twelve solves without more than 1 DNF. The 103.63 and 87.38 were with a different memo method than usual.

Considering how many DNFs I have it is amazing, I've made it through an entire Average. I could have gone for a safety solve on the last one but it turned out to be a nice scramble so I just thought: "Go for it!"

This was an RA done on Stackmat. The DNF was a 1:40.xx, and I went slow on the next solve so as to not DNF. The following solves were 1:42.xx and DNF(1:46.xx). I've restarted seriously practicing BLD.

So I decided to continue measuring blindfold solves and do an average. Finally I did 11 successfully solves in row. Then I did a DNF and a 1:30.03 solve and here is my 2nd blindfolded average ever:D.20080721

Everything over 2:15 had a BAD memory pause; if it weren't for those I could be much faster.

Wow, I can't believe I actually made it through an average! For the last solve I memorized and solved as slowly and carefully as I could. I didn't care about the time at all, I just wanted to successfully do an average.

Woohoo! I made it! All on video, too.
I slowed down a lot, and it worked, although the DNF made me really nervous on the last cube.

That DNF was 7:xx. As I got towards the end, my mind slowed down, as did my times. Oh well, 11 for 12 isn't bad.

I am sorry about the screw up. Maybe I will try this again to train my accuracy. I need to work on a better method for memorisation. It's very cool to get a lot of succesful BLD solves in a row. Tnx to Stefan's method. My website.

The DNS had just two edges flipped. I had two more successful solves 2.5 hours before I did this average so I decided to not include them. Now I had maybe a minute between each two consecutive solves. Not at all anywhere near Tyson, but I'm very happy I got a valid average.
