I got an email from my brother Bob yesterday. He's currently walking the Camino Frances with his 21 yr old son Rupert.
They've been walking nineteen days now, without one rest day, and last night they would have got to Leon.
That's hooting along!
I'm astonished, because they hardly did any training. My brother did though do squats in lieu of walking. He said he was doing 300 squats a day before he left Australia.
He said in the email they both have bad blisters, but they're “soldiering on.”
Ha! And before they set off they were wondering if they'd even make 100kms. They'll be in Santiago before they know it!
The Camino carries you upon its wings…
