Default Lost Love

Ok this isn't really a poly post. Just something that I had forgotten about. Up until last spring I was an avid bike rider. i enjoy downhill, xc, dirtjumping. Basically anything with pedals and two rubber tires and Iw ould give it a try.

Last year I fell into a funk. My passion was gone and I couldn't find my groove to want to ride anymroe. So I stopped. Every month or so I would go out for a ride and get more annoyed. With diminishing skills and my cardio getting worse, my ability to ride on trails I enjoy was quickly becoming annoying. Its beyond difficult to ride a trail you know you used to be able to destroy and not be able to ride it to that ability anymore.

Anyways this morning, SJ for some reason told me to go ride. With Pengrah not home and no one around to interfere with me getting ready, I went out. I rode trails I normally dislike. Double tracks with no real skill required and then hit single tracks. Its amazingly freeing to be out there flying around the back side of a mountain, not caring about why you "could" do but only caring about what you are doing. I feel like I found my flow again and while I had no real rhythm in my skillset anymore, it was still a blast. Besides, near the end I went onto an old single track and scared the crap out of myself a few times. Even had a healthy crash into a tree...

Oh boy how I have missed you.

On the poly side of things, everything is good. Pengrah is continuing to build her connection with Wellington. I need to spend some time trying to reconnect with Pengrah. She has been very occupied with Wellington and I feel like our connection is waning a bit. Hoping to have a date night tonight or maybe tomorrow to get some of that connection back.

Otherwise life is amazing on my end. Vacation planned and in operation. Life is good.

I am so glad you went out. I sure hope you get out more often.

You totally remind me, of myself. Was at my first horse show of the year in May and for once, alone.

Horse became a little fractious, and started bucking and pitching. Spectators whistling, because I wasnt going anywhere,..stuck to that horse like glue.

I had a riot. Big grin on my face. Just felt good to do what I love doing. Not only that, but to feel that spark and passion for it again.


Can`t wait to show you my trails, and can`t wait to see yours. Via different modes of transportation, of course.

I can't wait to show you around. If there is no snow here, we can easily go for a ride and you can see my trails...

7 days ...I will see your trails at least in a good season. Hope I don't make a fool of myself on a horse

Oh I am so jealous Ari. There is nothing like trail riding on a horse. I used to ride, English style. I had a horse I shared with another girl. A bay named wellington. Ha, wellington, ironic? I loved that horse. I used jump with him at competitions. I got a few first ribbons. I was young then, 10? Oh there was nothing like cantoring through the woods just me and my horse. A total bond. ...*sigh*

Though I won`t stick him in any of my english saddles, because Ariakas is so tall, He will be riding my 16.3 hh Hunter/Jumper mare. Lets hope he doesn`t point her at any fallen trees on the pathway.

,...Kidding Ariakas.
