I was so nervous my hands were shaking and I couldn't think and my brain fell out of my head. We started on the wrong side of the signs. Oops. So we lost 3 points for the 3 signs.
I got 2nd place with a 207!
We started pretty rocky due to nerves. He wasn't giving me good attention at the beginning. So we reached a halt exercise, I took a deep breathe and tried to calm myself.... That helped a lot! We finished awesomely!!!
I was able to calm myself enough to make it through and do all the signs. Which is what I was going for. The 2nd trial looked better overall because we were more connected as I had calmed down a bit, but I was still nervous enough to mess up the signs. One I did really wrong(like forgot the sit at the end and lost 5 points). The people were really nice and were inviting me to all their rally trials and telling me all the local-ish ones for the next few months. The SO enjoyed it and wants to go to the other trials too, so that will help me and my anxiety issues a lot. I just need to keep doing it to get more comfortable out there.
