Insanity raised its ugly head today. Rested after 2 short previous days and pain free for 1st time in last 2.5 weeks, I planned on another relatively easy 20 k or 12.5 mile day because I am still 2.5 days ahead of schedule. That was the plan. But NO, that would be too easy and the smart thing to do. After reaching my initial destination I felt so good I decided 5 more kilometers would be fine. Then another 5 kilometers. Then I arrive at a beautiful village with lots of my Camino friends drinking beer at a pub about 2 pm inviting me to stay. My feet kept walking, they were possessed. Lol I continued on hoping there would be a point where I could stop. The next village was 8km or about 2 hours. I could make that. As I got about 30 minutes out of town I noticed the mountains getting closer. The last 2 hours of my 9 hour hike was all UPHILL. Now I remember why the previous town was circled. To rest before the climb. I now realize today was just about pushing limits. Hope I am through with that. Hahaha. 24 miles.
