I always feel a bit down after an event. Kind of what now do I do? I mean I have plenty to work on for sure. But my in-laws arrive this week from England. So the next two weeks will be kind of busy without even thinking about riding.
And knowing Old Man Winter is on its way doesn’t thrill me either. UGH. I am such a fair weather rider. And I have to say I have a good case of the blues lately. I haven’t felt great between my foot and my general health.
I think I need either a good kick in the seat of my pants or a vacation. Not sure which! Remus’ shoe got put back on this week so that is good but I am heading to VA on Friday to see my dad and take the in-laws there so that means no riding till next week at least.
I know I need to A) Up the conditioning on Remus to get him fitter and able to trot and canter longer B) Figure out the bucks C) Bite the bullet and find a saddle to get on trial. SO there are my short term goals for the rest of September (Okay let’s say October, September will be over with in a flash!).
My work has become intense and I honestly don’t like my job that much (Shocker). I honestly think this affects my whole general outlook. I am good at what I do but if it makes me feel stressed and ill all the time what is the point? So maybe think of some changes there too.
What do you guys do to give yourself a good motivation kick in the pants to get excited about life again?? Because I might need some help.
The good news is that photos from Fair Hill are in and they are great so I will have lots of media soon to share here. The bad news is the days are getting shorter….ugh.
