- No pistol, because I felt like I was getting frostbite reloading the pistol yesterday. I called "hey-hey-hey" when throwing today.
- I increased the distances. Today's marks were 70-180 yards each.
- I wore a white jacket.
- I only had Laddie run two series of five marks each.

Oaks Area 2
More quintuples. Today's session was similar to yesterday's, with these differences:
One reason I reduced the number of series from four to two was because of the increased distances, not wanting to risk injuring Laddie by pushing him too hard.
A second reason was the frigid cold, which didn't appear to be a problem for Laddie but was making me uncomfortable.
A third reason was acute pain in my left knee. I'm not sure what's causing it, possibly my gout. I'm treating it with ibuprofen, and that seems to be helping, but I don't think a lot of walking on uneven ground is good for it, above and beyond the discomfort.
