Got a nice 11 rpm improvement on the 250Hz right hand 12.697 > 12.708 After that I started with the metal and improved my left hand record by 226 rpm from 10.212 > 10.438. Also got around 5 scores between those two with the left hand. With the right hand metal I managed to get two scores above 11k, 11.1xx and 11.03x and around 5 10.9xx scores. I hope on the next session I will break my 11.194 record
Blimey, you should have carried on with that session. I find I can add around 1000 rpm to my "un-warmed-up" scores once I'm warmed up properly.

It's only a single speed run, for maybe 1 or 2 seconds of effort.
But you're right to mention it though, I wouldn't suggest repeated speed runs without a proper warmup.
I just did a few runs to test my cleaned powerball. Normally I do a proper warmup before trying the real speed runs.
I'm the same as Tim yet again here (I seem to copy a lot of what he does). I often do a quick run from cold and in the same way as Tim, if i can get within about 900-1000rpm of my record i'm on for a hit.
I also want to be able to hit 14K ona cold run
Best first run i ever did was 13956, and that was before my current record.
Best first run I ever did was 13528 or so, and that was on the evening of my 14433. Usually I start on 12800 ish, sometimes a bit more. (The other night I struggled to get 12.1k, but that was a weird Powerball, as I managed 13.9k after I was warmed up.)

What Adrena1in and Tstering say seems to be the case for me too!!
