First extended cross and new best lucky time

I got a new best lucky time today (17.16s). After I finished the cross, two of the F2L pairs had happily fallen into place. Basically, it was a double extended cross, but as I didn't see it during inspection and didn't work for it (it just happened!), this counts as a lucky solve.

I wish I had seen, and planned for, the double extended cross during inspection because the 17.16s would then be my actual new best single time. This would be very exciting because it's over 4 seconds faster than my current best time and it would be my first sub-20s non-lucky solve! Oh well. Will just have to keep working at it.

I did do a regular extended cross today as well. This was one I spotted during inspection and worked for (so it counts). It was a very fast solve for me: 21.69s. This was my fastest solve of the day and only 0.28s behind my current best time (21.41s).
