Week Commencing 24th July 2017

Nordic Walking week commencing 24th July, 2017

Hi Nordic Walkers,

Where is this month going?!  Just flying by.  We had a fab week of walks last week with some great speeds considering the heat on some days.  We managed to dodge the heavy rain too, thanks to the Nordic Gods!  This week the weather looks changeable with Wednesday looking a bit wet, but we know this can change.  I will endeavour to email you if there are any changes or cancellations.

The Moderate Plus group have been asking (nagging!) me for a new name for their group. So I’m open to suggestions from all of you.  I had thought along the lines of “quick as a flash” so The Flashers would be great; but realised quickly that that wouldn’t work and we may get the wrong kind of folks showing up!  Let me know your ideas for an appropriate name for our fastest walk group.  Thanks.

HIT Class this week is at the earlier time of 5:45pm.  Back to normal next week.

This Saturday is Aragon Day in Ampthill and there will be a parade through Ampthill at 11am starting at the church and heading to The Old Sun on the High Street.  So you don’t miss it, I will make sure we walk up Alameda for 1045am and those who wish to splinter off to see the Parade can head off then.

NORDIC WALKING CLASS COSTS:

All evening classes – £5
Moderate & Gentle Plus – £5 or £4 if you have your own Poles
Mod Plus & Gentle – £5

SPEED GRADING KEY:

1 = Mod 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 (High Intensity Training, Tough and exhilarating!)
