Misery on the Camino de Santiago
It’s only a short post from Heather today as she’s been suffering a bit today.
Pride cometh before a fall Part 2 and the bra again….
Oh. sorry, Roanne´ll kill me for mentioning this, but mi sujetador especial from Spain – well, I´ve left it in Bercianos. So it´s back to finding a lingerie shop in Leon tomorrow…….
Anyway, there am I feeling all strong and fit and young – you know – just like last time. I left the albergue at Terradillos, walked 10 cm and ouch!! Double ouch!! Little toe of left foot AND middle toe of right foot. Left – blister plus crack between toes. Right, my old corn. None of my toenails look anything like toenails but there again, they haven´t for years.
I have not been so frustrated in a long time. The pain was ghastly, I had to keep stopping to adjust plasters, compeed etc so that was a double whammy but not to be avoided as my whole body would have been out of alignment if I wasn´t walking properly.
A very miserable day and out of the whole day, I managed to think about the countryside for ten minutes.
I have to go – in a bar and the albergue will shut at 10.
More tomorrow if I get Internet.
Hey, it´s better with real exclamation marks!
That’s one of the troubles with walking any distance, you never quite know when the old feet are going to start playing up.
