This is my first post in this forum and need some help. I have recently signed up for a walking marathon (schedule on 28th Sept) and have started practising as per the walking plan recommended on the portal.
I am in the 4th week of practice and until now have had no issues following the plan. Although last week after I finished my schedule of 5-6 miles, I developed a callus in my feet. I do not know why this happened but now has put my practice on hold. I have stopped my walking plan for the last whole week and the callus has subsided to a large extent.
I want to know is it due to shoes or something else (my wieght / walking pattern etc)
I am fat and weigh around 18.5 stones
I am very keen to complete the marathon but dont want to have any injuries which could be more harmful
Request for help relating to any home remedies, any particular shoes that I need to wear, any care I need to take etc...
I will also try an upload a pic in a while.
