You are quite correct - each day is doable if hard but the fatigue builds up. So very wise to break some of the stages
The roads around Donastia have changed quite a bit since the book was first published but were updated for the 2013 reprint. However, finding the centre of the city should be easier than finding a quiet way out in the right direction

We chickened out and took the train from Barca to Girona. It looked like a day and half by bike but not, we thought, the most interesting cycling so we gave it a miss.
Barcelona looked a big place so full marks for crossing it! Locals certainly friendly, some of them we can even understand but Catalonia and its identity clearly a hot topic here.
