Preparing My Feet For Walking The Nile


Ahead of Walking The Nile with Lev Wood, I’ve been getting my body ready for the 200-mile assault.  But as much as conditioning, I’ve been learning how to stop things going wrong in the first place.  And central to this, is looking after my feet.

Here’s a little video about what I’ve been doing to get them ready.

How do you prepare and protect your feet for expedition?  Let me know in the comments section.

    I can’t even protect my feet for a day’s set running (I learnt the hard way) I don’t think I’d even contemplate walking 200 miles! Good luck.

    Thanks Mel – preparation is key. Learning where the hotspots are; how different ways of lacing lead to more or less rubbing; and how to strap your feet so that blisters don’t form. Still – it’s not going to be easy!
