Getting into the groove.
Yesterday I was walking in the fresh early morning, thinking about how beautiful was the sunrise and the vinyards and the camino. My feet weren´t hurting and the backkpack wasn´t even heavy. All was very right with the world. I was getting into the mental state, I can do this. This is what I remember from the first Camino. I didn´t even ask once, Why am I doing this?. We were planning on a 10 mile day and we knew we could make it easily. then all of a sudden my knee was acting stupid. It hurt. With every step it hurt. I really had to lean on my stick. I managed to get into Najera, bought a knee brace and took a taxi the last 5 km into Azofra. I rested it, iced it and lay low. This morning I couldn´t move any easier, in fact it was more painful and I have to figure out a new plan.
