Becky took up Nordic walking in May 2018 and in July 2019 travelled to London for training to become an Accredited Walk Leader with Nordic Walking UK. It’s great to have her joining John and I on the team. In her own words:
“I signed up for Nordic Walking not really knowing what i would achieve, I hoped I would get fitter, I guessed I may have to put up with being bored (I’ve done the gym thing so exercise and boredom come hand in hand) Then I learnt the techniques of walking the Nordic way, and believe me it is a special way of getting the most out of walk in the park….or a walk along the coastal path…or anywhere!
Since that day I have been hooked! I have met some lovely interesting people, upped my fitness, trained for my first ever Nordic Half Marathon, lost weight and discovered new places in Norfolk I never knew existed. I am so excited about joining the Norfolk Nordic Walking Team and can’t wait to get started…”
