We will begin with short strolls on flat land and, progressively, we will increase the number of kilometres and vary the type of terrain in order to adapt our bodies to what we are going to find on the Camino

When choosing footwear, this must have a hard sole and must not have a heel which is too soft as this could lead to injuries

In order to achieve a comfortable position, it must be placed in such a way that its weight is near the axis of the body and its centre of gravity. Moreover, it will be positioned depending on the terrain being travelled on

Stretching the calves is one of the most recommendable activities before beginning and concluding each stage

One point which is very important concerning avoiding injury is the use of a staff (stick or cane) which will serve as an aid to support us on difficult terrain and even to probe the stability of the route. The support of the staff can prevent the appearance of tendinitis.

Support bandages will be used in cases in which there are small breakages of fibres, always consulting a doctor and a physiotherapist, who can evaluate the possibilities of addressing the rest of the Camino

In order to minimise the risk of injury to the Achilles tendon, during the previous preparation or training for the Camino, it is necessary to remember to do exercises which benefit the stretching of this tendon, always increasing the intensity progressively

At the beginning, travelling will be done on flat terrain with no difficulties and, as progress is made in the preparation, routes which alternate flat parts and parts uphill will be used
