I’m curious what people’s practices are around taking breaks while hiking.
When hiking with my wife, she’s pretty good about checking in on the time and having us break hourly, switching between 5 minute breaks (sit down, have some water), 15 minute breaks (take your shoes off, have a snack), and the occasional 30 – 45 minute break (soak your feet in a stream, have lunch). On my own, I’m more likely to push on and overdo it.
