Todays Nordic Walking

What a lovely day to be out walking on the Edge today was, even better to be out with good company and a pair of Nordic Walking poles in hand.
Two fully booked sessions saw 20 people having a go at this low impact, full body workout. Enjoying the sunshine and a new experience all seemed to be having a good time and agreed that it is easier than walking with more benefits.
After some basic tuition we headed off on a 4 mile walk which included a couple of hills, under the watchful eyes of instructors Martin and Sue. The hills came and went easily as people got the hang of using the poles to propel themselves forwards, leaving a pleasant stretch along the top of Lea Quarry before descending back down to the car park.
There is one space available on the 1pm session on 5th March, e-mail chris.dunkerley@nationaltrust.org.uk or call 07948072075 to book it.
We are hoping to run another Nordic Walking event in May, details will be finalised in the next few days and will be posted here as soon as possible.
