Nordic Walking week commencing 13th November, 2017
Seeing some fantastic speeds this past week! With the chilly mornings we all tend to speed up to get warm and it is great to see! The increase in speed has great health benefits for the entire body; Increased blood flow to muscles, more calories burned and Heart and lungs work harder and get stronger Why isn’t everyone Nordic Walking?!
I will be needing menu choices for all the walkers who are coming to the Christmas lunch at The Chequers in Westoning. The menu will be posted on our website: www.walk2fitness.co.uk. if you can send me your choices by November 17th, that would be fab. Thanks.

A BIG thank you to my Walk Leaders Gordon, Denise and Rachel for risk assessing and leading the Pop Up walk last Friday. A truly great walk which we’ll definitely do again! Thank you to all who came on the walk and for supporting our fellow walkers in the Christmas Fayre raising funds for charity. Lesley informed me that £2,195 was raised for Willen Hospice. Well done everyone!
