Camino de Santiago training plan

We are in the process of writing a detailed training plan for the Camino de Santiago and other long distance hikes. This is the training programme that we are using ahead of walking the Via Francigena in March.

The Via Francigena is another long distance hike, but this time through Italy rather than Spain. Needless to say, we can’t wait. But we are keen to get in shape and train properly with a mix of yoga, strength training and walking. You’ll be able to find our training plan shortly!
