I think that's a good idea- it's always good to get a 2nd opinion.

Ride more, worry less.

I think thats a good idea! You never know unless you ask! And the worst that would happen is your trainer would say no (which is doubtful because it doesnt take a long time). Most trainers I know are personable enough to approach with a question like that. =)
