The last two days I haven't been feeling so great. I probably haven't mentioned this on here, but I suffer from IBS and have intermittent "attacks" when I don't pay enough attention to what I eat. Apparently I've been slacking lately, which culminated in an attack last night and kept me from getting out to ride Alex. Most of the time I can ride when I don't feel well. Having had a succession of respiratory sicknesses over my lifetime, I'm the master of riding when I'm coughing up a lung or can't breathe; but when it comes to anything that makes me feel like I'm going to pass out (like my stomach issues sometimes do), I have to draw the line, even though I'm usually tempted to stubbornly tough it out :-)
The saddle is on it's way to MD to be fixed and should return next week unless any unforeseen issues arise. Since I'm still not feeling perfect and I'd only be lunging him anyway, I decided to give Alex another night off. I feel totally lazy since I was just talking a big game about "Boot Camp," but there's only so much I can get done with the saddle one anyways and the pusher in me is just going to have to deal with the fact that my body is demanding a little break.
Thursday Alex will get lunged, then Friday it's time for him to get new kicks and Saturday more lunging. Hope everyone is having a great week!
