Today's Ride

The Speckled wonder is getting more and more willing to pick up a controlled canter.  Hot and humid again today...a 15 minute pulse down.  She kept bouncing every time a horse fly/ deer fly gnawed on her and it was pretty hot by the time we got back.  The five to six mile course is all up and down with some pretty steep hill climbs.  She is also doing better on downhills lately. 

Time: 1:04:56
Moving Time: 59:51
Elapsed Time: 1:06:12
Avg Pace: 11:20 min/mi
Avg Moving Pace: 10:27 min/mi
Best Pace: 5:11 min/mi   It looks as if today's ride is closer to the "goal" of where we need to be, so I at least know the pace to work on.  We did stop for drinking mid ride, and sponging, so that adds to the time, but if the Royal Spotted Highness wants water, she gets it I don't care if I'm in the middle of whatever.  Probably let her rest tomorrow and hit it again Monday, then just work her from the ground between then and TOR.

  1. I just got back from my ride and my overall average speed is 5.7. We went 15.5 miles and it took us 3 hours. Had a few stops along the way to munch grass and adjust the blasted Toklat but looking at your numbers, your not that far off the mark. Good work!
