Day 17 is about tracking progress from a plan with specific criteria. This is an efficient way to go forward in training. To takes steps necessary for progress and not get stuck. However, this way of tracking progress is a bit difficult for me since it’s very static. I’m not a behaviourist and think that there are so many factors involved in learning that can vary and has to be taken into account. Anyway, this way of working has been well analysed and tested, so I’m sure it’s super good for other personalities than me.
When I did this I wanted to do it right and keep the criteria. Normally I would have gone with the flow and accepted that she went ahead of planned, but now I chose to make a cross on the progress sheet and redo it until I got 3 right in a row.
This was one continuous session of like 10 min, with getting some more treats in the middle (does it count as a pause? edited it out anyway). I got as far as starting with the duration and distance. Went back a bit in the plan but decided to stop at 2 sec duration instead of my goal of 10 sec. It felt like it was a good choice. Down here you can see my progress sheet.
