Well, let’s try this WordPress thing out, shall we?
109.61 miles, plus a couple of little fun walk rides. That would be impressive, except it was really just three rides. Ouch.
I’d certainly planned to get in a couple more rides, but I really hit my goals in December and January, and honestly, I don’t think Dixie could’ve looked any better after 20MT.
Two weeks driving a rental (a rental that I didn’t want to have to pay an extra cleaning fee for) made it really hard to do more than hand walk/jog. The rains finally showed up and made my hilly park super-sloppy, too. I’m just too happy with her condition to push her into a slip in the mud. It’ll work out.
March is going to be getting back in the groove for both of us. I haven’t run in forever, and I think I’m almost ready to pick it back up. I’m fascinated by Mel’s posts about the science behind recovery. I’ve felt physically ok for several days, but I haven’t felt mentally recovered until today, and I’m trying to respect that.
Rides of March is on the 15th, and I’m hoping to go over and ride a friend’s horse in the 50. On the 22nd there’s a trail run in my park (5 mile/half marathon/ultra distances) and I really should go run the 5 mile distance. I’ll get Dixie out for a 15-20 mile ride in the middle of the month, do plenty of shorter fun rides, and take her over to the Nevada Derby 50 on April 5th.
