The weather here is just wacky! A few days ago it was almost 90 and high humidity, Lana and I were laying around in our chairs dying in the heat. Today it rained all day, poured at times, although it stayed relatively warm. I really wanted to get Monk in the main arena again (as he was a little tense in there yesterday), luckily for me it coincided with one of our significant rainstorms! Monk and I were totally soaked by the end. He was a trouper though, and trucked right through it like it was no big deal. I rode him bigger and more forward today, and it helped his activity level and engagement. Now I just have to try and slow him down without losing that. Always trying to make things better!
In the morning Lana and I watched fellow Northwesterner Erin Alberta ride her Paralympic Individual test. Unfortunately Rocco was overly impressed by the environment and got behind the leg. Erin worked through it. and has kept a super attitude about this setback. The Paralympic riders were inspiring to watch!
Tomorrow is the jog (3pm). So I have to ride in the morning, then get both of us ready for the jog. There's also a rider meeting at 11am. So getting busy! No more laying around in our lounge chairs. We'll know ride times for Thursday (psg) by tomorrow evening.
