Walk Description:

This will be a warm up and walk to Grimley Hill of about 1.5 miles where we will do a series of hill intervals working at a our own appropriate intensity but it will be challenging.

The beauty of the hill is that we can all work in the same general area at our own pace but push ourselves appropriately.

If you want a social walk then this one is not for you but if you want to work hard with minimal chat then you  will enjoy the challenge.

Some people will choose to walk up the hill several times and some will skip or run.  It is up to you but the nature of the hill will means that you will be working at 70-85% of your MHR throughout the hill section.

After the hill session we will warm down by walking back to the Queen's Head for coffee and a natter.

As you can choose to work as hard as you want to the session is suitable for all who are wanting to work really hard to their own fitness level and Carol will encourage you.

We will have fun too with a series of games on the hill to keep things fresh and entertaining.

Please do not book if you just want a social walk.

Gear 2 - Faster pace gained through technique.  Expect Gear 2 at times throughout the walk.

Gear 2/3 - Faster again using technique and with less recovery.

I also list the length of the walk so you can make a judgement as to whether the walk is for you.
