Nordic Walking week commencing 27th February, 2017
Hi Nordic Walkers,
Well done to all those walkers who braved the weather on Thursday. Rachel was a star leading the group while I was in Ireland. Also thanks always to Gordon for covering classes on Tuesday for me and Denise and Sheelagh for helping out too. I’m so lucky to have you all fill in when needed.
Tomorrow at Noon we are meeting at the Hub in Ampthill with our gardening gloves and secateurs/shears to improve some of our paths that have become overgrown with thorny bits etc. If you’d like to join us, please come along! Cuppa for all volunteers at the end!
Our New Walk is starting this Wednesday and as many Gentle Plus and Moderate Walkers have shown interest, we will open this up to both paces. This is a trial class that will run for four weeks to see if there is enough interest. Therefore this will be a Booking Class so please text or email me if you wish to attend. Yipee! This class is £5.
Our Gentle Plus classes are growing and the paces in this group have split into three sections which makes it harder to manage for me and my walk leaders, so this week we will try the faster Gentle Plus Walkers in the Moderate class. All this means is that a lot of you have improved your fitness levels and your pace has increased to spread the group out. This is a good thing! But Don’t panic, with my trusty whistle, no one will be left behind!
NORDIC WALKING CLASS COSTS:
All evening classes – £5
Moderate & Gentle Plus – £5 or £4 if you have your own Poles
Moderate Plus & Gentle – £5
Long Distance and Pop Up walks costs dependent on Distance.
Private Sessions: £12.50
SPEED GRADING KEY:
1 = Moderate Plus (for the faster Nordic Walker, optional Hill running)
2 = Moderate (yet challenging)
3 = Gentle Plus (smidge slower than Moderate yet invigorating)
4 = Gentle (marginally slower than G+ class but energizing)
5 = HIT Nordic (Nothing but Hills. Tough and exhilarating!)
*BOOKING ESSENTIAL FOR ALL CLASSES MARKED BOLD BY 8PM THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WALK. THANKS.
