At the beginning of June when I made my decision to walk 800 km on the Camino de Santiago in 2014, I had to take an honest look at the fitness and training involved to complete the walk. Things like:
- My Camino Fitness Goals?
- My exercise history and my current fitness level?
- My ideas and perceptions about myself and exercise, as I close in on 60?
- The exercise types, and activities I prefer, and did those include long distance walking?
- Could I commit to the time and effort?
