Walk Description:

A gentle to moderate walk around grassy farm tracks, walking at your own pace whilst benefiting from a full body workout and the cross training that walking with poles gives you. A few prompts from me to remind you of your technique and to help you maintain a regular pace. Using the gentle inclines to improve rhythm and cardio fitness. The pace of this walk is mainly Gear 1 but Gear 2 interval options will be given to those who want to walk at slightly stronger pace.

Gear 1 - A nice, easy and natural pace that you can do for extended periods with recovery periods where appropriate. Short hills might be introduced. 

Gear 2 - A faster pace gained through technique. There will be less recovery time.  

Remember to bring your own water bottle, weather suitable clothing for the weather on the day. Parking is just off the hard track on grass.
