IRL – January 2014
|February 13, 2014||Posted by Melinda under Uncategorized|
These “In Real Life” posts are designed to show how a conditioning program is being applied “real life”. It’s one thing to talk about the ideal program – it’s quite another thing to see how an actual person is applying it real life horse. Maybe you are a new rider that is trying to find the balance between rest and miles. Or maybe you are like me – you’ve been doing this for a while with varying levels of success and you are interested in seeing what other riders are doing.
To view previous IRL posts, go to the category “Conditioning” and look for the tag “IRL”. Here was a2013 recap of rides and runs.
Tig came to me mid January.
Other ride was a botched trail ride because of a saddle fit issue that ended up me turning back, doing some riding in the arena, and some ground work.
Running – Let’s not forget the “Rider Fit” part of the equation.
I’m counting the 1/31/14 run as “one run”. Because I document my 1 mile tests, I needed to pull that out and record separately. The treadmill test was a completely failed experiment of doing intervals on a treadmill……
If I compare to what I did last year in January….
Jan 2013: 1 run total. An interval run that was 2 miles/25 min at a 12.5 min per mile average pace. It was my first test run back after not running since Oct of the previous year!!!!
