Walk Description:

A moderately paced walk establishing the technique with the aim of  increasing fitness to an intermediate pace.  Benefit 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. 

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.
