I was glad to hear L. & Hillary had extended the deadline for Two-Pointober times! I hopped on Gina this morning to record my time- I’ll be using her for the challenge for a couple of reasons. It’s much easier to manage a timer on her; I can put my reins in one hand and fiddle with my phone with the other and she’ll cruise along at a pleasant canter. (Moe completely lacks the ability to cruise along at anything slower than a mad gallop.) Gina also needs some conditioning work to be prepared for hunt season (as do I)!
It was nice and cool this morning, so hacking in the hay meadow we went! After some walking and trotting, I let Gina canter. We made a circuit of both the upper and lower fields before Gina started to feel a little tired and I started to reconsider my plan to do both two-point work and jogging on the same day.
I ended up at 4:06, which seems about right. Here’s my plan to improve my time:
- Resume pilates workouts 3x/week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
- Add additional jogging day (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday/Sunday)
- Practice two-point twice a week (Tuesday, Sunday)
Who else has a Two-Pointober plan?
