I should know better and Lunging Turtle


Friday, May 25, 2012


So I downloaded a new app for a 10K prep and started it today at week one. emoticon
emoticon what was I thinking? I'm already running 15-20 minutes straight, I do not need to start at week 1 where it's 1 minute run 1 minute walk intervals.. duh...

so I have an email into the company that made the app to what the schedule is for the 10K and their 1/2 program. The 10K is free, the 1/2 you have to pay for. I am not going to pay for an app that is going to have me running more miles that I can progressively do. We'll see if they answer.

So Tuesday night was a lesson with the emoticonto get him more into a dressage/collected frame. He was not amused. Took a 1/2 hour then I got off, we put him in side reins and lunged him about 25 minutes then I got back on again and he was NO NO NO I don't WANNA...sigh. He finally put his nose in, honestly dude...

I added the video here, hopefully it worked!

Everyone has a GREAT Memorial Day Weekend and give thanks to our soldiers!!

    hope you can get the app to work! good for you for doing a 10K!!!

And i'm sure turtle was just having one of those days, I've been there done that! lol some days they just can't understand what you are asking for and you have to take baby steps. I know i get frustrated when my mare doesn't comply with simple signals. They can make things seem so much harder than they actually are... sigh.

have a great memorial day! :)
