.day 15 to atapuerca.
.
.
5.19.2018 - at this point, we love hills (i swear, we really do!) even though feet and legs are slowly getting angrier and angrier with me, hiking up the inclines have been our favourite. once we have a pace and rhythm we're comfortable with, control our breathing, and void our minds of rushing the climb, hills-schmills💪...downhills, on the other hand, we still hate

.day 14 to villafranca-montes de oca.
.
.
5.18.2018 - in case you're wondering, we have connected with other peregrinos, i just don't like talking while i walk (and many others feel the same) and so that's why you often see very little people in my shots😅 (...the fella on the other hand...😘). yes, i'm with my fella but we don't often walk side by side, talking non-stop with each other. connecting with others has been great but it was also really important for me to see the nature that surrounds the trail and be with my own thoughts (however random, jumbled, crazy, & coherent they may be😅)

.day 11 to najera.
.
.
5.15.2018 - likely one of my favourite days of walking. it was short, bright, breezy, and somehow felt familiar. we saw fields upon fields of gravevines (albeit, in their early stages) and surrounding it all were beautiful mountains (some even had snow🤗!) even though it looked nothing like the okanagan valley, seeing the mountains as they were made me think of home.

.day 10 to navarrete.
.
.
5.14.2018 - there is something about waking up before everyone else and just hearing nothing but the birds chirping and the roosters crowing...and then the sunrise, oh, the sunrise: peace and calm - two things often needed for a good start to the day. we are also now in one of spain's renowned wine region, la rioja...the wine, oh, the wine: also calms after a good long day of walking, for sure😘

.day 8 to los arcos.
.
.
5.12.2018 - i'm still quite amazed that i'm/we're seeing spain this way. every now and then, when my heel throbs or my knee caps feel like they'll fall off (woe is me - i'm so dramatic, i know😅), i just look up from my steps and remind myself how awesome this all is. all the different shades and levels of the greens surrounding the path...😍💆🏻‍♀️

.a touch of spring on the camino.
.
.
5.11.2018 - to have the dry, clear, yet cool weather during the first week of the camino has been great. to have the vibrant wildflowers along the path has been absolutely lovely. at this time, i was somewhat missing spring in vancouver (cherry blossoms, magnolia, tulips...) but the more we walked, the more blooms we encountered. spring has sprung on the camino - yet another thing to distract us from our feet/leg woes 😅...from mine, at least!

.day 7 to estella.
.
.
5.11.2018 - one of the things i often regret during this walk is not having enough lower body strength/energy😅 to explore the village/town once we finish our walk for the day. our feet are often too tired, achy or swelled up that the necessity of resting them for the following day is greater than our need to sightsee. the beauty of getting up really early, even before the locals, is that we often walk through calm and peaceful streets(bonus is during sunrise) and it feels like we have the village/ town all to ourselves💆🏻‍♀️💆‍♂️. and what about these lush green and sunkissed landscape🌿 😍🌿

.village vagabonds.
.
.
5.10.2018 - so, technically we're no vagabonds but we sort of are during this whole adventure and most definitely during this camino😅! one of our favourite moments was seeing a small village nearing after hours on end of rolling hills/landscapes. even more of a favourite was walking through them as it was either a much needed stop for rest and nourishment or that it marked the end of our day. more often than not, the villages were quaint, rustic, and sometimes even quirky...most definitely inviting

.day 6 to puente la reina.
.
.
5.10.2018 - they said after the pyrenees it gets easier. they said that the ascents would be smooth. they said that descents aren't so bad. they said that you find your groove. they said your body gets used to it all. they said a bunch of bs that i no longer believed/listened to as i progressively felt more pain in my legs and feet (yet still no blisters 💁🏻‍♀️)...and we were still just on day 6...🤦🏻‍♀️😅. thank goodness for the views which I always took as motivations/rewards for every step we took forward😍

If your Tuesdays in June don't involve a walk by the lakefront, you may want to reconsider those plans😉

5.9.2018 - i don't know about you, but i don't think we stood out too much in the big city🤷🏻‍♀️. thought we actually blended in quite well - you know, just those touristy folks with their travelling garbs enjoying the sights and sounds 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋‍♂️!

.day 5 to cizur menor.
.
.
5.9.2018 - with the long, hot, waterless day behind us, we opted for another short distanced-day. we were also pondering about staying an extra night in pamplona as it was the first big city of the camino - many peregrinos typically do after a strenuous hike up and down the pyrenees. as we walked into the city, as beautiful as it was, we decided that a stroll through was enough for us. since we didn't have any substantial aches and pains we were happy to make this decision. there was something awesome about being somewhat spontaneous and not pressuring ourselves to make any set plans - this is kind of significant because of how we typically are as travellers...we also thought, if there weren't gonna be bulls running the streets, then we'll pass until then😅!

👟 MONDAY IS A MINDSET 👟
.
.
After a LONG ass hiatus from my previous CycleBar addiction... (I mean, have you BEEN?! 🙌🏻) I made it BACK tonight. Was nervous as to how I’d feel compared to before because home workouts you know... couldn’t possibly make me a better rider right?! 🙄 WRONG 🙅🏻‍♀️ Kicked ASS in fact. Because you guys, HOME WORKOUTS WORK!!! 👏🏻 But what I learned most was from this pearl of instructor motivation:
.
.
“Monday is a mindset” 🤯
.
.
Each day truly is all about our MINDSET 🧠 Good day? That’s a mindset. Bad day? Mindset. CHANGE your mindset and you change your day... then one day you wake up and realize, you changed your LIFE. Baby steps guys. No one conquers the world in a day eh?? (At least we hope not 🤷🏻‍♀️)
.
.
What will you do to change your mindset today?? Tomorrow?? If I hadn’t changed my mindset on working out at home, been willing to risk a new fitness journey and set my mind to coaching... I wouldn’t be headed to Indy in TWO days to meet some amazing women that I otherwise would never have had the privilege to know. Let go of yesterday’s, get out there and MAKE THAT CHANGE 👊🏻

.day 4 to villava.
.
.
5.8.2018 - early mornings can be quite chilly but with the sun rising, it gently warmed our backs and offered a lovely golden hue on the tree-lined path and hardly anyone was around - the day started off beautifully. this was somewhat short-lived. as the day progressed, we were faced with steep downhills with their sharp rocks/footing, we were more exposed to the sun, the rest stops we were anticipating were closed, water fountains didn't work, and because of this, we ran out of water for the last 8 kms.
....we lived to tell the tale 😅...definitely learned a few things from this experience😉!
