Shortly after I made the decision to walk my first Camino I also decided to start a spreadsheet record of my training. I was already a long-standing backpacker but had never bothered to keep a record, and I was curious to see how a record would look over time.

You’ll need to ignore the time column. For some reason the format for that column gets scrambled and the grid lines get lost when I send the record to myself.:-(

I hope to carry on in pretty much the same vein until I start my Camino on 25th May this year but include a few back-to-back (3 or 4 days consecutively) 15 mile stretches :-0

ADDITIONAL NOTE
Ok then, sorry folks, I can’t get the blog to show the same lay-out that is shown in the publish preview 😦

Hope you can still get the gist of the record though.

In essence, the entries from left to right on each line are: Date, Terrain, an asterisk for shoes or boots, an asterisk for a small pack or Camino pack, distance and finally the time column.
