After realizing that we have covered a little over 45 miles in the last two days, we heard our bodies telling us the loud and clear message that it was time to slow down. What do these “body voices” sound like, you might ask. They sound like blisters, they sound like sore shoulders, and they sound like your chipper “buen camino!” greeting to every passerby turning into a muted grumbling slur of attempted spanish. The passerby then turns their head over their shoulder to see what possible country you might be from to be speaking such an unheard of language. These are the “body voices” that led us to a “light” day of 15 miles from Calzadilla to Sahagún. We arrived before evening, and are now showered and trying to make the difficult decision of whether to lie on the bed or stand on the golf ball, the golf ball being the more therapeutic option for foot recovery.
Jeanie had a great day in terms of her levels! We are noticing a trend that the flatter days are being much easier to manage, which held true with the lack of major uphills today. The slowing of our walking pace may have made things a little more predictable as well. We are only a few days from León, and we are making an agreement to do a better job at managing the distances so as not to end up with such acute soreness. A good nights sleep and we will be ready to greet the day tomorrow! Thanks for journeying with us.
