Another hot humid slow 5 mile ride.
We just can't get up any steam in this footing. It is the soupy slick kind of wet where the hoof just sinks in. After our recent set back I just do not have the moxie to risk a tendon injury. I know riders with a little more fortitude would forge on, but as it is I'm missing most of the season. I would like to at least get the last two rides in, so slow and steady we go, even though it is maddening. The humidity is incredible. Phebes didn't have a dry spot on her, and I was soaked through all my clothing, couldn't wait to peel out of the stuff (please, no visualization). I'm not a fan of wet weather, wet clothes, or wet anything, except a shower, and that will likely be my next stop. Phebes will be off until Friday afternoon as I have no time between now and then. Like her to have rest days in between, to repair what I might make sore. We are hanging in there...~E.G.
