Released Friday, 26th June 2015
Good episode? Give it some love!
To walk through it, or get off trail? Our correspondents struggle with injuries, changes in plan, and aches and pains.What’s the best way to take care of yourself on the trail?

In this podcast we discuss the hard business of thru-hiking, and the wear and tear on our bodies as a result. Injuries are incredibly common. According to a survey by distancehiking.com, 60% of thru-hikers report having been injured on trail. Although, if they are defining an injury as: “an injury, or more than a few days of aches and pains”, this rate seems a little low.

Tune in to see how our correspondents are doing and how they are dealing with their setbacks.
