That looks like an interesting site. It's not too long before I head off to start my camino and I'm looking to squeeze in some more training so I look forward to investigating the site in more detail.

Thanks,

Wulf

Lillypond I looked and never found it. But I found that JustRob had suggested a website where you could go for training schedules:

I used the Trek Training Guide from Do It for Charity.com!, a 16 week training programme. I´m sure it was recommended by someone on this forum and that was where I got it from.

I´m on my final countdown now, 10 days to go :D . Very happy, excited and apprehensive :!:

Except the Francés
Rather a late answer to your question, but, as part of my training for the Via de la Plata this winter, I'm just over half way through St Cuthbert's Way. It's mostly fine and goes through lovely countryside past interesting places, but it's not as well marked as the Camino, and is a largely fabricated itinerary (it goes through some deliberate loops: I suspect to ensure that it reached 100km and therefore qualified as a long distance route and was eligible for European funding). I'm blogging the route for the Guardian's website. Here are links to day one http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/the-northerner/2012/aug/29/walkingholidays-scotland and day two http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/the-no...lkingholidays-scotland-northern-ireland-extra I've had more blisters in 3 days on St Cuthbert's Way than I did in over 30 on the VdlP
