- Camino(s) past & future
- September/October (2015) CF; October 2017 PC from Porto
I'm training for the Portuguese Camino (Porto to Finisterre and Muxia) for October of this year. I'm walking 5 to 8 miles a day with my backpack on, but also including occasional back to back days of longer distances, 10 t0 12 miles so far. My training has been primarily on the indoor track at the gym, because the weather outside here is dangerously hot. In late August and September, I'll get outside and take some long hikes on hilly terrain. My question has to do with the Hoka One One's I've decided to wear. They are the W Challenger ATR 3 model. I'm wondering if the shoes will hold up for all the training, followed by nearly 200 miles on the Camino, or whether perhaps I should get a second pair to wear on the Camino or to alternate now with the ones I have. Any advice?
