Today´s walk has been just under thirty kilometers. I am at the end of the flat land of the Meseta and in the next couple of days will be moving on to the second range of mountains of this Camino. I have enjoyed the experience of forever looking towards the horizon. It has not been easy and I have lost all track of time. It has been an exercise in taking one step at a time and trying not wishing to be somewhere else. It can be attractive just longing to be at my destination for the night with the comforts of a shower, a meal and a bed. That would detract from the experience of enjoying the present moment.
The weather is slightly on the cold side which is good for walking. I still have no major aches and pains and for that I am grateful. Have walked 31.6 kilometers today.
I have discovered that I like best walking on my own and that to walk with others will only lead to injuries. If I lengthen my stride to keep up, I may end up with shin splints. My rhythm for walking is an inseparable part of who I am.
