GETTING FITTER AND FASTER… REAP THE BENEFITS…PURPLE T-SHIRTS
IT’S TRUE! People who Nordic Walk regularly are able to see a measurable improvement in their walking speed. It is a positive endorsement of the fact that they are getting fitter and faster and that is a great feeling. From Well Being (gentle) walks to faster Workout Walks, we always throw in added exertion to the mix. That way, you get to push yourself to literally go ‘that extra mile’ which you probably wouldn’t do if you were out for an afternoon stroll on your own. Walking in a group definitely is brilliant incentive to move up the gears, work up a sweat and burn some extra calories!
NORDIC WALKING = MAKING CONNECTIONS
Another superb meet-up on 24th April with West Norfolk Nordic Walking Club following on from our successful inaugural event in January where we hosted them at Blickling. This is what Nordic Walking is all about! Meeting new people, making friends, walking in new places and having a day out! We were expertly taken on a glorious 6 s/miler by their instructor Mark through Sandringham Estate and shown routes we would never have known existed. It was brilliant fun and even though we did not see a Royal, we nonetheless felt somewhat regal as we chomped our sandwiches in the sunshine.
Next joint walk will be in August from Wells to Holkham and then back through the estate. Watch this space…
