Despite still feeling the effects of my cold, and being tired from yesterday's outing, I went up the Med Steps again and really pushed myself.
This time, I walked all the way from the fort in La Linea as I needed to go to various places in town. So instead of getting the bus to the start point, I walked and had already put in a lot of hard work by the time we got to the foot of the steps.
My walking companion, Val, was also feeling very tired today. Because of this, we scheduled in a 15 minute break to enjoy the view from the caves and have a drink and a snack.
It felt so hard and slow going! It seemed like every step was a struggle and I put all thoughts of a fast time out of my head.
Much to my surprise and delight - we still made a really good time. Total time from start to finish was 1 hr and 22 minutes. Taking off the 15 minutes break we had (which was well-deserved because of the walk already done to that point!), then the actual walking time was only 1hr and 7 minutes - 3 minutes faster than last time!
I was So happy with that!
Went to Bachata lessons
