The Voice of Resistance

A recent conversation, on a recent winter’s morning, sounded a little like this.   Mine is the voice of resistance.

Let’s go for a walk. It’s a beautiful day and we need the walk.

It’s 27 degrees outside.  There’s snow on the ground and did I mention it’s really cold outside?

So?  It’s good training.  We’ve got a big walk coming up!

It’s 27 degrees outside and there’s snow on the ground.  Did I already say that?

So?  It’s good training. Remember?  Whose idea was it to walk across Spain?

It’s 27 degrees outside and we’re walking the Camino in April, when there won’t be any snow on the ground.

Good.  But in the meantime let’s go!

Let’s go!

Okay, but I reserve the right to turn around if it gets too cold.

Several hours and 9 miles later…

We’ve logged about 30 miles in our new hiking shoes so I’ve declared them broken in and ready to walk the Camino.  Whether or not we are ready is a whole other story!
