So last night we were planning out our walks for each day until completion and the owner of our Albergue came through. He was a typical Spaniard, helpful but with strong opinions. He quickly rejected our plan and told us where we should plan to stay each night for the next several days. I accepted his advice and made reservations for the next few days.
We did the 17 Km today in just over 5 hours with a couple breaks along the way. One for breakfast about 10 Km in and another to replenish water and stretch my IT bands which were suffering from the down hills. I will send some photos of the peaks we climbed over today. Hard work but necessary to get where we are going. My Colorado friends are great company and used to walking in hills. They have been very patient with me as I stop often to breathe. Frankly,I do not know how I have gotten this far but for their support and my excessive pride. The good news is that we have our longest days behind us which means more rest each day as well as less walking. I might just make it to Muxia.
