Solving My Cube

This week i focused on solving my cube as often as I could. One of the perks of doing the rubiks cube for my goal is that its fast and portable so I can bring it literally anywhere! My time seems to be the same or a few seconds worse so hopefully by next week it will be going down. Either way even if it is the same it already has been such a big difference however hopefully my time will decrease for now.

Achieving my goal

For the last two weeks Iv’e been solving my cube a bit slower than usual. I though it was just my cube so I got a new cube and the new one helps my times a lot better. Probably because I had my cube for over 3 years… anyways so far my time these days are around 40 seconds. By next week I could hopefully be at 35-38 seconds.

Week 2

This week I have been extremely busy with lots of tests and essay writing I didn’t have a chance to review the algorithms however been solving the cube everyday. The time is the same from my previous time however next week hopefully I can memorize a lot more and get started more seriously.

Working to achieve my goal

There are about 78 more algorithms I would have to memorize to be successful with solving the cube in less than 20 seconds. Since I already know the beginners method it makes memorizing these 78 algorithms easier, however I think it would be impossible to memorize 78 so right now my goal is to memorize at least 35 of the most important ones. During the past two weeks I haven’t been touching my cube very much but been trying to memorize the algorithms. So far I have memorized about 11 new algorithms. By next week hopefully I could memorize the 35 and start solving the cube. I have timed myself a few days ago and from 58 seconds I can solve it in 54 so already I see improvement!

How to achieve my goal

To try to achieve my goal I’ll have to learn through the internet. I learned the most basic way through the internet however now I will have to learn more advances ways. No one I know or no one in my family can solve the Rubiks cube so the internet is my only option. Since I have a time of 58-70 seconds to improve to around 20-30 seconds I will have to memorize more than 30 new algorithms (algorithm is a process to follow for solving operations.) To accomplish my goal I will prepare physically and mentally. Physically by moving my fingers faster to turn the cube and mentally to memorize all the algorithms perfectly. Then I will start practising regularly everyday (anywhere I go I could practise) then finally timing myself every time I solve it and improving little by little

Rubiks cube

Hey guys so I learned how to solve the rubiks cube 3 years ago and I’ve always wanted to further develop my knowledge on it but have never gotten the chance, so for my skill I will be learning to finish the cube in 20 seconds. Right now I can only finish the cube in around 58 seconds soI’m really hoping to improve over the weeks.
