    Walking 60 miles with a less than perfect leg

    Here's the deal. In 2009 I was in an accident where I broke my leg in 3 spots and broke my hip. I had to have surgery where a rod was put in my leg. I'm back to normal, for the most part as far as my workout routine is concerned.

    I'd really like to do this 3 day, 60 mile walk and I'm wondering if it would be ok to do so

    I don't know the answer. Is there a physical therapist or a physician still involved in your case who you could ask? 20 miles a day is a lot of walking, and someone who knows your condition should be consulted. As for training, you'd obviously need to build up to it. If the doctor or therapist gives you the okay, then post back with how much you've been walking and I'd be happy to advise you.
