Day Two…I Hurt
I was hiking by 7:30 this morning, hoping to get some miles in before it got too hot. I am hiking with Julian, a 42 year old Scotsman who has lived in St Martin for 20 years. He’s a sailor, chef, and dive instructor. Our pace is similar…slow.
We made only 12 miles today and I hurt a bit. Feet and legs just a bit sore as expected. Unexpected, pain in my right knee today. Not sure what it is but it really hurts going downhill. For now, I am taking aspirin and hoping to just walk it off.
The mountains here are beautiful and weather has been a bit warm but nice. Currently camped on Blackrock Mtn at a spot with a view.
