Staying fit after the Camino

The question was:

I have just finished walking the Camino Frances for the second time. Like last year when I had finished, I am now super fit. At least, my legs are so strong. I love being able to walk up steep hills effortlessly. However, last year, over time, I gradually lost that fitness and by the time I started walking the Camino again this year it was like starting from scratch. I did try to keep up a walking routine throughout the year but I suppose like most people, I find it hard to find enough time to go for long walks – except perhaps on the occasional weekend. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to keep up this level of fitness – or what a minimum level of walking might be to stay in shape? I was thinking about a daily run perhaps.
