This is a short post and not necessarily a happy post. However, as you are my dear Reader, I want to include you in the happenings of my horsey and endurance life both for the better and the worse.
I'm cancelling my attendance at Lake Sonoma this weekend. I really really really want to go. However, over the past couple of days I've started to feel more and more overwhelmed with the amount of stuff I need to get done before Monday's test and today, after feeling a bit depressed this afternoon and completely discouraged about my performance in school, I've decided that these feelings are feedback from my body telling me that I need to slow down and take something off my plate.
An additional stressor is that by missing Friday, I was going to miss the presentation of a group project, something that my small group was OK with, but with a test on Monday covering the group topics, and 2-3 lectures that same day, AND already feeling behind and needing every hour I have this weekend to stay up on the material, it was hard to think that I could trailer somewhere without electricity for over 48 hours and lose that time.
That something unfortunately, is my LD this weekend. Which means likely my season is over for 2012 :(. I'll try to get in lots of good conditioning rides over the winter, including some "home LD's" so that we can start the 2013 in good form ready for a 50.
As a consolation prize, I'll run in the Clarksburg half marathon Veteran's day weekend and trailer Farley out for a conditioning ride sometime this month.
But for right now I'm going to focus on my studying, my health, and getting myself and Farley in kickass shape here at home.
