On Saturday, Belle, Dusty and I went to the QCDC in Davenport for our first trial in more than 10 weeks. I had hoped to trial on both Saturday and Sunday, but a summer cold took me down for the count Saturday evening and all of Sunday.
I was a little anxious to see if all the distance work Belle and I have been doing would hold up in a trial setting. Belle performed wonderfully for three of our four runs. Our fourth run, jumpers, was under SCT by just a hair. I realized during the run that Belle was running slow, so I did my best to move a little more to encourage her to move faster. Needless to say, we will go back to working on speed as well as distance.
I was very pleased to see that I'm not really limping all that much in the video. Sports turf is just so foot-friendly.
Here's video of Chances and both Regular runs:
