I must have caught a stomach bug because I was not feeling well all day yesterday. The cramping and nausea came in waves, but I had a lesson, so I pulled it together enough to drag myself into the car and to the barn.
I remained bent over as I tacked up. But, once on, my desire to ride overcame my discomfort. But, I have to say, cantering did not do anything to help me feel any better. I had to battle the pains coming from my belly to keep going after we took a break to change directions. But I persevered. And had a great lesson in that I got PJ straight into the outside rein both directions and I was straight. Problem is, because I was distracted by the pain, I don’t remember everything I did or felt. Funny how my brain could only process one thing at a time and the stomach thing took precedence.
Whatever I caught is still with me today, but I think I’m going to take it easy and remain on the couch with some ginger ale.
