10 or 11 days even might do, I did

Puente La Reina
Torres del Río
Villafranca Montes de Oca

exactly one year ago

Now, if I had a chance, I would probably take even longer than 12 days...


i,m fit enough but i,ve never walked so far before,so dont know how my feet will last with blisters , and all the advice seems to say dont push oneself to hard or you will miss the meaning of the camino?

I think it's helpful if one knows how fast one walks- it allows for constant refiguring of time of arrival, the day's overall walking time, time to lunch spot, etc.

For example, I know I walk on flat ground at roughly 3 m.p.h. (miles per hour, sorry metric types) at a saunter and 4 m.p.h. if I'm late for dinner. Knowing that info about yourself, you can make the big plans for the Camino, like you are doing now, but then also constantly adjust for the vicissitudes (terrain, weather, side trips, health, etc) you will inevitably encounter on the walk itself.

Go outside and walk for an hour with the full pack and see how far you get or walk a pre-measured distance and see how long it takes- then do the math for mph or kph. I think it would be good basic info to have.

PS: A.M.D.G.: I saw that a LOT on my high school test papers...


A.M.D.G.. i used to go to a church run by jesuits . and its there motto .ad marjorem de gloriam .my latin spellings wrong ! but there again my english is rotten too .it means for the glory of god...i kinda like that ...makes me think about the camino .. but when my feet are sore will i be saying that or cursing !!!

"To the greater glory of God". I teach in a Jesuit High School! It is what we strive for in all things.
Buen Camino,
