9.3 miles hiked
Oh my today was a doozy. Hardest day since being back on trail so far. I feel like I keep saying that don't I? Must be that Type 2 fun. everyone talks about. I love the hard days... after they are over.
I’m glad my mom isn’t with me because I think we would have had a hard time together and probably would have broken down and cried a lot.
The scrambles today were insane. The blowdowns. The heat. The chaffing. And getting lost a few more times. It was a scary, hard day.
I tried to nap midday and couldn’t get comfortable even though I felt the most exhausted I've been since being back... so I carried on and when I got to a camp at 2:30pm (again an early stop) I decided was done for the day. I just sat till 5pm contemplating life before I could even get enough will power to set up camp. I did see some pretty birds and lizards though and I watched them for a while in my trance haha
I watched a couple episodes of my show to eventually calm my brain down after the day to sleep.
That’s all I can write on this day. It was difficult to say the least, but I'm here. I made it to camp yet another day where I thought I wouldn't. I can and will do this. Every step I take is a step closer to my goal. And I know not everyday will be easy. Most of them will be hard, but that's why I'm out there.
