Weekly Recap – “Semper Gumby” (Always Flexible)

So we didn’t train last week. At all. Really.

It’s been snowing sideways on and off all week. The roads are an icy nightmare. My yard is an icy nightmare.


It’s been pretty suck.

So we haven’t been able to get much training done, besides some little things we can do in the house.

Repeat after me – I love my DogPacer. I love my DogPacer. I love my DogPacer.

Okay, so shitty weather aside, we were supposed to be attending a trial next weekend. Except, just my luck, my entry appears to have been temporarily lost in the mail. It took over a week to arrive at its destination that is less than a three hour drive.

Unfortunately for me, this also happens to be one of the most popular trials in the region. So they are full and I am SOL.

That’ll teach me to use snail mail.

Naturally, this has thrown a wrench into my training and trialing plan for the entire year, pretty much. I’ve been harboring thoughts about attending AWDF Nationals (and I’ve already entered – yikes!), but now I’m going to have to re-evaluate my prep plans.

For now, I’m just going to see how things progress and maybe try to find a trial between now and then for a test run.

Let’s be honest – the only thing I’m hoping to get out of AWDF Nationals is to not embarrass myself. Also a t-shirt – I’d really like a t-shirt.

So here’s hoping the weather clears up ASAP so we can get to work. We have much to do in the next three months…
