The April meeting opened with a taster session of Nordic walking by one of our members Claire Harris. This has become a very popular way of exercising. We all picked our poles and stretched our muscles mostly our laughing ones!
We marched up and down the car park trying to get technique and not assault each other as the poles were attached to our hands.
We then knuckled down to get the hang of it and did a 10 to 15 minute walk in the nearby wood. Julie got the hang of the technique but was excused the walk as she had just had a knee op, she retired to the golf club to look after the minute book.
Everyone enjoyed Claire’s tuition and the taster walk, although I must admit my arms were aching a little after and perhaps we should have done this last month after the dessert tasting!
Following the walk we re stretched our muscles not forgetting Claire’s favourite stretch!
