I’ve been training for my Camino Frances since Christmas, mostly accompanied by my walking partner/friend/neighbour Sue, with average weekly walking distances of 30-45 miles. I’ve bought a pair of Merrell mid boots, which I’ve done some 50 miles in but want to save them for the 500+ miles of my trip. My foot regime is sports stick and some taping of the usual trouble spots and a double socks (Coolmax liners and padded Bridgedales). I suffered badly with blisters last year, so have researched and tried out a few preventative methods. It seems to work, so I’m hoping that this is still the case with the relentless day on day pounding of the Camino. Fingers/toes crossed!
I look at the long range Accuweather forecast for SJPdP daily. Just a tiny indication of my current obsession. It concerns me somewhat that there are thunder storms forecast for my two days.
