Carol Goode

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.

 

Check the title of the walk for more information.

The session also includes advice on the different types of pole available including traditional strapped Nordic Walking poles. 

Poles (strapless) are provided for your course.  

Currently taught in a small group (max 3 plus instructor), at the end of the 90 minutes you will have a full understanding of how to use poles effectively and at a level where you can then join our Parks and Pathways regular walks and classes, sign up to other NWUK or WALX classes or simply get more out of walking in your own time. 

The session price of £15 also includes your first walk with the group once you've completed your induction session. Your instructor will give you advice on which regular sessions are best suited to you. Regular walk sessions take place on Thursday & Saturday mornings at Salford venues & Monday mornings at Chorlton Water Park, Manchester (see full schedule for more info on the 1 hour Workout Walks or Motivator/Strider Walks. There are also monthly 2 or 3 hour walks on several dates a month). 

There will also be an option to sign up to a second Power of the Poles 2  - 90 minute course  - at a later date to discover more advanced Nordic Walking technique using strapped poles if you so wish.
