Most of us are aware that the difficult KS on Friday's can be tough.

For that last few weeks (or maybe months) I have not been able to fully ' logic it out.'

today, I did. I did the puzzle is under 45 mins - possibly a record for me.

Did others have an easier time than normal or was my brain actually working really well?

Yes, perhaps a bit easier than the past few. Although I don't pay attention to the time on the untimed puzzles, I would guess that I solved this one in a little bit less than an hour. But, I think what makes these puzzles seem easier or harder depends on how long it takes to find the right spot to focus on - if you find it early the puzzle will seem easy, and if you can't find that spot it could be a long day! Today I probably found the right area to focus on in the first ten minutes - this puzzle is still open til Sunday so I won't say anymore. Except, I think you should give yourself the benefit of the doubt and acknowledge that your brain was working very well today!

Either the Friday difficult KSs are getting easier or I've become better at doing them. It's been a few weeks now since i failed to complete one and most times, I've got it done on the Friday. Today was no exception. I can't remember exactly how long it took me, but i'd say it was under an hour in total.

I wonder what the overall statistics show? For the last few weeks, the number solving Friday's difficult KS has been as follows:

May 12th 200
May 19th 169
May 26th 213
June 2nd 116 [confused] [scared]
June 9th 186 (open until Sunday)
