Boggy Pathways - is it easy to walk in the rain?

Okay, I'm used to the rain, but I've seen it make some pathways very dangerous, that or annoying, with mud everywhere

how well are the paths set up for walking in the rain? Is it easy, or is it best when it rains to take an off-day?

Boggy Pathways

When I walked the camino in 2002 it rained every second day! We couldn't take days off so we just followed the advised route for cyclists.
In 2004 we walked for six weeks and had three days of rain altogether (there was a heatwave in Europe that year). The only boggy paths we had were in Galicia where there are lots of subsistence farms with cattle and the mud and dung was a challenge!
You'll be fine! Take each day as it comes - rain or shine.
