Hello Norfolk Nordic Walkers,
We really are now fully immersed in summer walking – and loving it. Hydration is key on our walks, along with asthma inhalers where necessary and factor. Last Wednesday 20 of us explored a brand new route from Itteringham over to the Blickling Estate. As you can see from the photos, it was fabulous. We then all did a quick change in the car park of the Walpole Arms and partook of a wonderful “under the vines” lunch al fresco, eating tapas in the cool of the shade. We do have TWO more recce walks lined up here – so watch this space as there will undoubtedly be another WALK + LUNCH in this beautifully rural area.
BECKY’S FRI-YAY DUNSTON WALK – NEW TIME FROM JULY
Becky loves this walk! (But actually she is an even bigger fan of the Car Boot Cafe afterwards for a good natter!!!) The news is, she will be starting this ever-popular Friday session at the earlier time of 9.30am from the 1st July. For those of you who like to come to this walk after my STRETCH, FLEX AND BALANCE Zoom class, don’t worry! I will start my class from 8.15am instead of 8.30am from July also.
(Book ahead as this session can fill up fast!)
KEEPING COSTS DOWN
I have always been determined since setting up my NNW business in 2017 to make walking / exercise accessible for all, regardless of age or fitness level. In line with this, I aim to offer as much variety and choice as I can at a very reasonable price. I don’t want this to change. I therefore have no intention to raise them this year as I want us all to keep exercising together regardless of the current unsettled economic climate. Phew! One good piece of news for everyone…
For £27 per month, you can book on UNLIMITED walks AND Zoom Workouts too. You also get PRIORITY PASS to book ahead – and thus avoid the Waiting List! It’s a total bargain and keeps you motivated to exercise MORE – good for your body, mind and soul.

SEPTEMBER HALF MARATHON TRAINING WALKS
Looking ahead – not so far away now – there will be longer distance training walks specifically ‘geared’ to those of us taking part in the North Norfolk Half Marathon run by Positive Steps Events:
13 Aug HALF MARATHON TRAINING WALK – 7 miles
20 Aug HALF MARATHON TRAINING WALK – 9 miles
3 Sept HALF MARATHON TRAINING WALK – 11 miles
24 Sept THE NORTH NORFOLK COASTAL HALF MARATHON – 13.1 miles from Burnham Overy Staithe to Morston!
PLS REMEMBER: The Half Marathon is not an event I organise. I am a participant NOT A LEADER but if you want to walk as a team, we will aim to walk at a steady 3.5 mph and joining the training walks will help you get into the swing of that pace for the duration. On the day, you may prefer to take your time and do it at your own pace. It’s totally UP TO YOU.
I have now booked taxis for those of you who responded to last week’s email about needing a lift from Morston – Burnham.
We LOVE our Saturday adventure walks. This week Lynne has been over in Potter Heigham doing her recce for today’s walk and was delighted to find that whilst walking between reed beds she was accompanied by butterflies and birdsong. Meanwhile Becky has been over in Gressenhall putting together a wonderful 6 mile circular, starting from the workhouse and ending in the cafe! i have been back to Felbrigg as I cannot decide which route to follow for my July walk. Decisions decisions! Our Saturday walks are always longer (approx 4-6 milers) so watch the website to see what floats your boat. We do like a cafe, Car Boot Cafe or pub afterwards too. #weekendvibes
