Not a pretty hiking day as went through the industrial city of Burgos which took forever. I realize now that I do not take enough breaks as my high ankles are in pain. But 14 hours of rest and I am good again. Supposedly hiking for an then resting 10 minutes is what is recommended. I hiked 7.5 hours today with a 15 minute lunch and another 6 minute rest stop. I feel like Forest Gump when he started running. Lol guess when I get "tired" I will quit. Hahaha I needed to get at least 2 days ahead of the 34 day proposed schedule and now I am almost 3 days ahead after 10 days. The problem is albergues don't open until 1 pm so might as well walk. I can rest next life.
