- Year of past OR future Camino
- Camino Frances Sept-Oct 2020
Has anyone else really struggled with motivating themselves to get active before their walk? I work a driving job, and many days probably don't even hit 2 miles a day because of it. In September I did really good, walking 4 or 5 miles multiple times a week, but then the past 6 weeks I've just sucked again. I fly out 17 weeks from today, and hoping to do CF from St Jean and include Fisterra and Muxia. I'm sure the weather change and less light outside haven't helped lately. I also know I don't need to overdo training, but I definitely need to get more consistently active. I am overweight, no surprise there. I even considered a gym membership for 4 months because there's one minutes away and it would get me at a consistent pace and things, but not worth the cost for a short term. I don't have the luxury of rest days, etc once I'm there. My flights are fixed, and I know I need to train now so that I'm not miserable there. So, all that being said, this isn't a question for those of you in good shape, consistently active, etc. For anyone who struggled before the camino, how did you get through in preparation?
