TOP TIP: GO STEADY

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Advice | Foot Care -

Many foot prob­lems stem from sud­den in­creases in the fre­quency or rigour of walk­ing, says Michael.

“If you walk five or six miles reg­u­larly and then dou­ble that to 15 miles, or tackle a mountain route over rough ter­rain with no prepa­ra­tion, it can leave you prone to in­jury. The best advice is to build up gen­tly. In­crease your dis­tances in­cre­men­tally over time, and get your feet used to more chal­leng­ing ter­rain be­fore go­ing on a big mountain walk. Do­ing that will re­duce the risk of dam­ag­ing your feet by do­ing too much, too quickly.”
