Happy, Happy Day
It's hard to understand or describe the effect riding has on me. All day I felt different, younger, more physically fit, more energetic. I swear my body shed a couple of years. When I walked the dogs later in the day I felt like I could have walked ten miles. My back didn't ache like it usually does after a very short distance. This is the "upper" I had while working at the horse shelter. I knew that since I left there I've aged, mentally and physically. Though I suspected it was psychological, I also couldn't rule out my advancing age. I knew that I felt better then I had in years while I worked there. When I quit, I reverted back to the way I had felt before. Yesterday was like a shot of adrenaline.
I'm still feeling good in the "afterglow" of the experience. Strange, strange, strange.
