When was the last time I walked more than 20k? It was probably in September before Burgos, watching the sunrise over the cathedral while the sun sets on my Camino. It was a good time and 20k was a breeze. I had good company and many good conversations.
Since the New Year, I have barely walked more than 5k a day. Work has put a halt to that. Even the organised walks I join are far lower in distance to what I cover in Spain. I am so Camino unfit it’s not funny.
Anyhow, I have 4 months before myself and the brother travel to Ferrol and start off again. Luckily enough our days are not as long as they were back in September. Bring it on!
I reckon 20km is a very civilised distance. Enough to make you feel like you have achieved something, but not enough to exhaust you completely when you arrive at your destination. 25km is also more than doable, but you definitely know you are alive (or dying??) with anything over +30km!! But sometimes it just has to be done! Happy training. Mel
