She has decided that I should learn to shorten and lengthen my strides and set out trotting poles in a fan shape. I quickly realised that it was a lot less effort if I went through the centre, but She insisted that I go close to the inside to shorten my strides and on the outside to lengthen them. This made it much more work, but I bravely got through it - in the rain I might add. You can almost see how I get on in this video clip, although it actually shows how much it was raining. Nothing seems to put Her off.
