I have an event on May 11, and am starting to feel the crunch. It is still a bit chilly out, but I was thinking of working Dez 2X a day when it gets just a bit warmer out (hopefully in a couple of weeks). I would continue the twice a day through May 10, minus very busy days. I was thinking of varying the training a lot to keep him from getting bored. Some training would be for strength/endurance, some would be skills, and a small portion would be trails.
Let me know what you guys think. :)
