Well this begins my last week of training. I had a really good week with 54 miles all with my full pack except for the last day which was my longest day: 14 miles.
Starting with last Sunday of 2 miles around the lake in the sun, Monday was 7.59 miles, Tuesday 6.71 miles, Wednesday 8.02 miles, Thursday 8.35 miles, and Friday 6.95 miles.
I've nearly worn the top of my pack out with constantly repacking. Jim is getting excited and walking more miles every day. I have made contact with a couple from Phoenix who will be meeting me in Pamplona and we will spend the first night together in a small Pension and travel together to the starting village in France. I'll spend the night there to deal with possible jet lag and since they have two days in Barcelona to recover they will immediately head up the mountain .
I have my twin sister Mary to thank for the connection, she found them on a website called trails. It's going to be a good beginning.
