... there was none. We were both totally fine the day after our big ride. Dixie wasn't too tired or too hungry, and her legs stayed tight and cool. I should get pics of her hooves - the trimmer is coming tomorrow, but all he'll do is get her balance perfect again. They look great.

I felt great. My knees creaked a tiny bit, but nothing like they used to when I first started doing 2+ hour rides.

I have to plan a bit better, though. After I got back, I drank a ton of water and suddenly realized I was starving. There was no food, because I lack planning skills, so I ended up running to Qdoba for a truly enormous quesadilla. So, next big ride:
  • Put the camelbak back together and drink more water!!
  • Definitely bring food again
  • Make sure there's easy to prepare food waiting at home
Tonight I'll pack my gym clothes and go to the gym tomorrow. I miss lifting heavy things :)


  1. Good for you!!!! Where`s the pics??Lol

  2. I lack packing skills as well. I'll go, go, go all day and forget to eat, drink, or potty. LOL. Glad you guys are feeling great the day after :)

  3. It just takes a little bit to figure everything out.

    You would think that by now, I would have everything down when it comes time to start competing again, but every year, I seem to forget multiple things the first few events. LOL

  4. Yeah, I'm with Cheyenne - where's the pics?

  5. it's been a loooong time since i've put in a serious long ride like that. not sire how i'd do, especially the day after :-/ you rock! glad you're both feeling good the next day!

  6. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who forgets to pack or eat!
