Never again a stage of 40 km. It was tough, Thougt I wouldn’t make it.
Started at 7am in pouring rain. The first break in Bert, under a shelter. Already tired after 13 km.
I started to get new energy after lunch. I had to rest often. My motivation was low. My feet hurted, I felt all the small stones on the trail through the soles.
Someone I stayed at to get water told me it was more hikers an pilgrims the previous years.
Good hostel in Arfeuille. Alone, as always so far. Got a cheap dinner. The manager probably thought I needed sleeping pills, she gave me a pint of wine.
I’m very tired, even though I have not drunk all the wine. Yet.
