Hello all I have been walking the Camino Frances for about 7 days now. I started out knowing my pack was a bit too heavy, but not so heavy that I couldn't carry it, and I thought it could be a good opportunity to get a bit stronger. In the past 7 days I've had problems with my ankles being strained, bad blisters under callouses on the balls of my feet, and my hips as well as my glute muscles have become extremely sore and achey. Basically what I'm wondering is how much of this is basic Camino adjustment and how much of this may be due to my pack weight. What I could send ahead out of my pack isn't very much and really isn't worth what it would cost me...how long does it usually take your body to adjust to doing 25-35km a day?
