February Mileage / March Goals

Well, let’s try this WordPress thing out, shall we?

February 2014 calendar


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.

  1. Cool new site! Wanna migrate mine in your copious spare time? *g*

    I have plenty of time right now, obvs, but not much atten–oh hey, time for more meds? I’m there.

  2. I agree with everything you said about wordpress but glad you made the jump! I too still have a huge list of little things that need to be fixed like side bars but I dont have time to code right now :(. Lol we need a wp code party. …

    We rode our horses the same number of times! You had more miles of course. I do like these posts because its such a nice snapshot into our real lives.

  3. You must do a post about how you accomplished this move, how frustrating (or not) it was, etc. Inquiring minds want to know!

  4. I love that there will be random pics as headers! And I’m extremely jealous of your calendar – mine is not nearly so full and I cannot wait for the crappy winter weather to be over so I can ride!

  5. Happy to see you on WP for selfish reasons.

    I get to comment! For unknown reasons, blogger would kick me off when I tired to comment from open id. Tried a google ID. Got a few comments in around the web, then it stopped working. I like the new site. Great layout. I’m no WP expert, but if I can help, you got it.

    I cracked up over your calendar. “RAIN.” “Ow Ow ow ow ow ow” “Rode”
    Nothing like a well kept calendar to get a glimpse into the life of a horse person. Funny!
