So far so good.  I've kept with my plan so far.  I don't want to have to keep planning every second of every day, but at some point I might need to.  It's a good thing I had "break" on my riding schedule yesterday because I didn't get up in time to exercise, work, go to the store, ride, AND cook dinner all in the same day.   Today the plan says Yoga, I think, and Ride.  The Riding plan has the angled-poles exercise on it.  

So that's what I'll do.  I'm starting to feel like I need my book with me so I don't forget what I planned to do ...

Another thing: I should probably work in some of the basic exercises in books like Centered Riding, the exercises designed specifically to work on balance.  Like having an arm out a la airplane while in two-point.  I would do both, but there's that whole steering thing.  Maybe in the indoor I can steer with my legs and weight, but I don't think I can in the outdoor.   It's a thing to think about.   At any rate, I'll do the airplane exercise while warming up and doing two-point.  After all, "two-point/balance practice" is explicitly on the schedule.  :)


  1. Maybe sometime soon I can come hold one end of the lunge line and Ms Rev can run in circles while you do all the exercises you want without worrying about steering.

    Hm. Any chance of lunge lessons? That would be fun.

  2. That would be fun! And yes, there is just such a chance -- I can ask MT and he'd go for it. I think it'd be a good idea for a while.
