With train tickets booked we are only a few weeks away from starting the GR5. In this post I talk about our preparations for the trail, the options available and my thoughts on section-hiking the trail (as opposed to thru-hiking).
With a new area to explore and spring nearly here we have been keen to get out an start training for our 2017 hiking season. A injury sustained to my IT band while running however is forcing me to diversify how I train for hiking and develop better overall strength and stability. It is frustrating in the short term but the long term benefits will hopefully pay off in developing better hiking form and endurance.
