    Astorga to Santiago in 10 days

    Cheers, I will definitely spend some time there either way! That is good to know. I will keep things open ended for now. Might head out early and try and get a bed at the Municipal in O Cebreiro if I don't feel like stopping at La Faba. Great! Looking forward to it :)

    Astorga to Santiago in 10 days

    Yes, I might keep it open for now. Looks like O Cebreiro is fully booked for the date I will be there anyway. Any thoughts on staying in La Laguna?

    Astorga to Santiago in 10 days

    I had a look on booking.com, but couldn't find a bed in O Cebreiro for the date I will be there. Closest I found was in Albergue la Escuela in La Laguna. Any other places you can recommend for finding accomodations?

    Astorga to Santiago in 10 days

    I'll trust you on that one, and will opt to make it for O Cebreiro. I read somewhere on this forum someone saying that O Cebreiro was a tourist trap, but they might have been woefully wrong. I will definitely try to make that adjustment, as I am usually a good friend with the mountains. On...

    Astorga to Santiago in 10 days

    So this is my 10 day itinerary so far. Will make changes along the way if I find it necessary. Also have one flex day, so could extend to 11 walking days. That means one less day in Santiago though. Any feedback on the stages would be appreciated.

    Thanks for sharing this. I ordered a magnesium supplement with a blend of 5 different types of magnesium. So hopefully it won't cause too much of a laxative effect.

    Shoe problem

    Yeah, that's true. I have been looking for some liner socks for a while, but couldn't find them in any sporting goods store over here. Any idea if they sell them along the Camino?

    Shoe problem

    Thanks, will get some magnesium and see if this helps. By ankle exercises, do you mean strengthening the calves?

    Shoe problem

    That's great advice, thanks! I will definitely try out these stretches. Also thinking of bringing a massage ball to loosen up soles and calves. About the walking poles, I'm debating if I want to bring them or not. Why would you say you spend up to 20 % more energy using them?

    Shoe problem

    This is great to know. I got some new Salomon trail runners yesterday. Very light weight and comfortable shoes. I'm glad your shoes are working out so well. Buen Camino!

    Shoe problem

    Thank you very much! I ended getting Salomon trail runners in goretex. Hoping I don't need to break them in much, as I start the camino in one week.

    Shoe problem

    I will try and stretch more during my walks, and after I finish. Sounds like that could help a lot.

    Shoe problem

    Couldn't find them in the right size, unfortunately. But for my next Camino, I will definitely try them out!

    Shoe problem

    Yeah, I will definitely take some breaks during the walk to stretch and take care of the feet. Hoping that will help.

    Shoe problem

    Great advice, thanks! I've got some new trail runners now, with a lot more flexibility. Will test them out today to see how they feel after 20-25 kms. But will definitely ditch the hiking boots now.

    Shoe problem

    That's great! I went to a store yesterday. Tried some Hokas, but couldn't find the right size. Ended up getting some Salomon track runners. Light weight and fits perfect on the foot. So I think I will stick with those, and get some sandals or flip flops as my second pair.

    Shoe problem

    Thanks for the advice! I went and got some new Salomon track runners yesterday. They feel a lot more comfortable for walking long distances. Will try them out today for a 25k walk with full equipment. I don't believe they had any drop, so I guess I don't need to walk them in much.
