    Injuries upon return from the camino

    As one who just completed the camino (oct. 3rd). I have returned to my home country with stress fracture in my foot, and IT band syndrome in knee. I'm wondering if others who have walked have experienced similar injuries or conditions from walking for so many miles day after day. kim
