Hi, I would like to do this route in three days, have somebody tried before? or think is possible ? I really appreciate your comments and advice
Thanks for your reply, it is my first time, unfortunately I don’t have much time, i wish i have it, Its a family trip but i want to take this days off and dedicate them to myself and be appart of all daily routine and distractions, I’m and endurance athlete (amateur of course) and complete few long distance races in the past I think It could help, also preparing and training myself daily, but i Know this is totally diferent and has different meaning and environment, i mean no offense or disrespect for anybody im taking it the same way as religious and espiritual journey not a race i just don’t have the time right now, I would like to have a great experience and approach to the Camino, that’s why Im seeking for opinions and advice.
It is fully possible to have introspection while walking in 6-7 km/h. The brain does its own work when it doesn’t have to think of what the legs do. And it is also possible to do a full stop and smell the roses. I actually did that on my last camino. I stopped at EVERY rose I saw and smelled it. It was a hassle in the rose garden in one of the towns I also interact with locals some interactions starts with them commenting my speed Fellow pilgrims are a Little bit harder but if possible I talk when I pass them sometimes I slow down and walk as a drunk for a while. Long daily stages doesn’t mean that we run blind through the day. It is just that our legs usually moves 1,5 times faster than the average walker. But our eyes and head sees the same things and we stop to photograph a snail on the ground, enjoy the church in a village and play football with the kid on the street, say hello to every cow and pat the lovely dogs etc but between those things the legs are fast. I do long stages and quite long days. And I think I see the same things as most pilgrims. The only thing I “miss” is half of the albergues, bars and restaurants.Would I recommend it myself when you have no time limits or when it is your first time on a Camino?
No , I wouldn't.
I enjoy a more leisurely pace : need for introspection, time to interact with locals and fellow pilgrims and " smell the roses".
But yes your plan is doable.
