Thanks for the welcomes and advice everyone! Very friendly place!

I already have blisters from just the 3 miles haha I think my walking boots are trash. My heel lifts up in them and the back chafes.

To prevent chafing in my thighs i will literally try anything. Id bathe in a tub of vaseline if it helped!

Aye the mental side will be tough. My friend Iím walking with is great company, we have a good laugh. Hopefully that will see us through the tougher times!

Good to do the challenge with someone - you can encourage each other when one of you hits a bit of a wall.

If your heel is lifting, you might get some benefit from searching online of heel lock lacing techniques. If it works for you, it will be cheaper than a new pair of boots.
