An update on Mika's training for the AAC Regionals and my handling "re-learning":
my handling -- This has improved a lot, and I feel like I am handling a lot more smoothly now. It doesn't feel awkward anymore, and I don't feel like I am scrambling into position (thanks to Susan Garrett's Success With One Jump DVD!). We'll see if my "new" handling is consistent when we get some more practice in.
more control of Mika -- Definitely, although I think that's because my handling has improved.
great weave entries -- A bit of an improvement. Not much. We really should work on this more.
correct tunnel entrances -- Yes!! Again, something that has been improved thanks to my improved handling.
Our trial on March 21&22 should be a test of my improved handling skills.
