Hmmm.......yep the one against the wall certainly looked wider. It could be an optical illusion as the large plank is about 1 1/2 inches thick and and the thin one is a little over 1/2 inch thick. The large plank is longer than the other one, and it's painted. Do you see what I mean....Reese thinks it looks odd too!
The unpainted one looks wider doesn't it. So I got my tape measure and sure enough...
is 11 inches wide and the thin, short board is 12 inches wide.
What!!! You have been making me run a narrowor plank than necessary!! You are an evil handler!
It really isn't that much of a difference. Now if it was the other way and she was running on a board that was 13 inches and the competition size was 12 inches I think we could have a problem. But in this case she is running on an 11 inch wide plank and in competition she will have more room as it will be 12 inches wide. So I think we will be okay.
easy for you to say, you just run NEXT to it. I have to run ON it.
you said I'm doing good, right? Isn't that why we raised the plank tonight?
Yes it is.
Today we did a number of short sessions. A session this morning we were 6 for 6, then at lunch worked it a bit we were 5 for 5. Then tonight we decided to test it and raised the plank about 2 1/2 inches or the height of a brick. Whoo hoo, again we were 6 for 6. So today's runs were 100%. Good girlie Reese.
