As always, step by step, together, taking a rest now and then… After day 23 (see previous blog) I managed to come down, out of the forest. I still seem to be able going further and still to continue even though my thoughts say otherwise. In the meantime I was very tired, muscle aches and pain in my feet, I was actually done, even though the app said that the stage was still about 7 kilometers further. Mentally I would have loved to walk those kilometers, actually that’s just my ego that wants to finish the stage, but in the end I wisely decided to listen to my body and not do that. Together with Cindy I took a break, ate a soup, took care of my feet and in the evening watched a beautiful sunset by the water at McLeod’s Bay and we were able to experience a very loving and relaxed evening before continue tomorrow. Tomorrow we will cross the water to Marsden point.
In the end it was (again) a special experience and an inspiring day. And as Patt said this afternoon, “maybe this was your ultimate breaking point,” (while I thought I’ve already had my ultimate breakpoint 60 times ;D) and I’ll get it 1200 more times. I just keep going, step by step, I will continue, whoever thinks whatever, whoever does whatever. However it goes, it’s all good the way it is. Stay tuned.
