Well, it ended up on the same weekend as my last USEF dressage show.
Five miles of grueling hills, impossible obstacles and slipperly, slimy, smelly MUD. I finished in just over 2 hours. I have never been so sore in my life! I had no time to train (far too busy this summer!). Thank goodness I'm generally fit or I never would have made it!
Here's proof. Your's truly completed a Spartan Race. Arrrrgh. That was fun. Like a heart attack! No, really. It was fun. :P They post photos of runners en-route during the race, so as soon as I've got some, I'll share. Should be good. :P
The next day dawned and I was up butt-crack early to haul up to UNH for the last dressage show before hunt season starts. We just did one test (smart move!) and came away with a 63.22 in First Level Test 3 despite my.....err.....inability to ride well due to revolting muscles! Lol. Daatje was good, even on such a warm day.
|Thanks to my friend Marielle, for this wonderful photo!|
Moving forward, today's openning meet was cancelled due to rain (bummer, but I couldn't go anyway....working) so we are all looking forward to the start of hunt season on Saturday! I promise a hunt report with photos. :D 'till then......
