Here are the continuation videos of Scott “Shroomer” Williams’ talk that I captured at our annual blessing of the pilgrims event. Among many great tips, he demonstrated shortening your walking stride, using trekking poles and umbrellas, and ways to lighten your load. He shared lessons of people he met along the Camino. He brought a box of gear for show & tell and demonstrated how to use everything. From blister and bedbug prevention to avoiding jungle rot, there’s something for everyone! Watch and learn from the Shroomer.

One thought on “More Injury Prevention Tips for the Camino”
This talk by Scott Williams is the most helpful info I’ve seen on trail walking injury prevention! So glad I watched, even though it was long-ish. I especially appreciate what he says about shoes. Had I known this before I went (three times I made the same mistake of taking boots!), I would have done all my Caminos differently.
At the beginning of Part I, Scott hands out a list of Spanish words for medical conditions. Is it possible that you could post that list?
