I have a little under 2 months before I throw my backpack back on again. My postponed Camino starts on the 4th of September, after I leave Dublin on the 3rd. Not long to go.
I haven’t done particularly much since I took the decision to postpone, as you can tell from my low number of posts. My shoes have changed and boy, do they feel right! A new marmot light jacket has given me reason to ditch my poncho that I have worn over the two previous years. My toe has healed up and I don’t think it will cause me any problems in September. Hopefully.
I have bought a fitbit flex also on a whim to motivate me to walk more. Before May, I would generally be clocking in around 7kms per day. Wearing a fitbit and having people to compete against has motivated me to hit 10kms most weekdays, and 15-20kms on weekends. I love it and the social aspect to it. It also measures how much you are sleeping and has a silent alarm so there is no chance of me sleeping in late in albergues!
What else? Oh..the World Cup! As I type, Germany have just beaten Argentina and claimed the top prize. I have dived head first into this year’s World Cup and have watched pretty much every game. The group games were a joy to watch. It was very hard to pick a favourite from those early games but as the rounds progressed, the matches got more and more cagey. But the best team won in the end, it is fair to say. Plus I won €120 in a competition in my company! No complaints from here anyway.
I will write again before I go but I just wish the days would count themselves down a little quicker 🙂
