Here’s another great small space course from AgilityFlow – this time we are looking at Serpentines. I ran both Sky and Ice over this course, Sky ran first.
Here is the course map:
I ran Sky over the course first, here is a video of his runs.
Things to note with Sky’s runs:
- I need to stay very close to the wing on jump #2 to ensure a tight line to jump #3. Compare my path on the first run to all the other runs. The first run was 0.5s quicker than all the other runs.
- Performing a landing side front cross between #5 and #6 was the quickest way of performing the middle section of the course – although I only attempted this on the first run.
- On run #5 as Sky emerges from the #4 tunnel I raise my threadle arm too soon. Sky see’s it moves towards me even though jump #5 is right in front of him. Sky clearly understands the threadle arm much better than I thought he did – good boy Sky.
- Reverse spin on jump #9 yielded a much better turn than a straightforward shoulder pull.
Next it was Icy’s turn. He ran the course 3 times. He was clean on each run and all runs were quicker than Sky although not by that much.
Finally here’s the side by side comparison of Sky and Ice’s best runs.
