Santo Domingo de la Calzada to Belorado
The first eight kilometres to Grañón just flew by. We had a lovely cuppa there and then walked all the way to Belorado, another 15 km. The last 6 km were hard on the feet and went parallel to a motorway.
Smooth (paved) surfaces are hard on the feet because the foot lands the same each step. I’m finding it much easier to walk on dirt tracks and stony paths. Paved roads are like working – repeating the same tasks over and over, whereas dirt tracks are like taking a holiday.
I’m really glad we have walking poles. They’ve become our new best friends. They help us up and down hills and give us a push along the flats. The downside is I can’t hold Fi’s hand while using them and I will always remember the times we are walking hand in hand.
Today we walked 23km together side by side.
