i need a book for beginners on hiking and how to get prepared. a book for someone of no knowledge or ability in hiking, for someone who whats to get started in a new sport. what recommendations do you have?
Hi, I think itís very important to maintain a level of fitness, whatever that level is. I usually go on day hikes (between 4 to 10 miles) on a regular basis at weekends and thought my feet were well conditioned. I spent a week in the house without doing any walking during the week and the next weekend did 14 miles. My feet were very sore, I believe it was because of the short break! Keep it regular. Regards
I have been on a few hiking trips but, I am still a beginner, and it has been several years and I would like to prepare for a trip in seven months.
Every time I go hiking I have trouble catching my breath. How do I condition my Lungs for alltitude? What is the ideal weight for hiking? Also, I have high blood pressure - do you have suggestions on taking easy trails, moderate trails? Thank you
I think the idea is to not be over weight check your height/weight index and to prepare just jog a few miles and find out how much you can do 5-6 should be enough and double that if walking do that twice a week and you should be able to do a medium trail
