The wild spotted wonder is getting there, but...

 Tonight's ride went okay.  15.85 miles with an average speed of 5.4 (a hair faster than the last time we did the A+A+B loop).  As we increase the mileage of our training loop I'm not liking that suddenly she isn't drinking.  Drinking has never been an issue for Journey in the past, and she had cow-patty poop.  DO. NOT. LIKE.  She did dive into her feed bucket immediately when we finished.  Her pulse was a little erratic.  She walked in at about a 78 pulse.  It hung, and jumped up and down with the sound of things at the park.  Finally at ten minutes finally dropped to 57 bpm.  So it looks like she is a little reactive.  On one loop we had a rash of rabid spooking until I got after her, then she quit and got down to work. 

 She looks fit.
