The second month of preparation for El Camino
Try and do three long walks during the week and use the week end to more attainable hiking paths. Start with routes that are 1 or 2 hours long to finish with routes of 3 to 4 hours, with the shoes and bag you will be going to take on the Camino de Santiago.
Hydration is very important during long hikes as well as eating correctly during these long lasting trips.
Third month of preparation
The last few weeks before facing the Camino tour, keep sticking to your previous hikes but this time, try to hike up mountains with a slope of 500m or more, take it slowly, but it will add to your training making your feel more confident both physically and mentally so that your can fully enjoy your Camino tour.
You should also think about your posture when you walk, standing up straight and looking forward, leaving your hands free for a more natural walk. If it path is long, you can help yourself with a walking stick or too to reduce the strain that is put on your legs and knees
