My recent post for Silvia’s Agility Foundations class: Here is a short video of Lil’s current serpentines plus a few reps jumping over angled jumps. We have not practiced serps for a long time due to focusing on straight jumping and cip&cap.
Lil will normally seek out and take serpentine jumps with very little support from me. I wonder if the reason she ran past some jumps was because I was not in my usual position (which is typically further ahead). It felt good to feel rushed by Lil’s increased speed and drive over the jumps. I definitely felt more comfortable when I took more of a head start and was a bit further ahead of Lil. I’m not sure any of this is visible due to the camera angle though.
Lil’s speed has picked up considerably since starting this course and as a result I am having so much fun running with her….not that it wasn’t fun before! It’s just more fun now!
Now I just need to be disciplined enough to do very little jump training between now and next weekend since we have another trial. Jumping has become so much fun its like eating ice cream… hard to stop until the bowl is empty! But I want Lil’s “jumping bowl” to be over-flowing for the trial!
That sure was fast! Great job! She is really flying, so… – who cares about a couple of missed jumps You do want to be ahead for a serpentine yes and you can help some with the arm too, you just don’t want to do any extreme turning as you want to keep running.
