With fantastic Cornish weather once again Doublebois Nordic Walking club headed off to Fowey at the weekend for an amazing coastal/woodland walk form Fowey harbour to Gribben Point.
Its a perfect example of why distance is not always the key to how difficult or demanding a Nordic Walk can be, height gained and lost in the SW dictates this with only our Sibleyback Lake route being flat.
Conditions at his time of year are perfect for outdoor sports and activities with the added bonus that a lot of ‘Emits” (holiday makers) have now left and it is now time for the locals to ‘come out and play!’
With steps declines unclipping poles for safety is a must, along with a varied hill climb techniques which keeps up the pace, using poles on steps and a different height adjustment were all practised – these techniques are taught by us when teaching the NWUK courses as the terrain as previously discussed is always hills.
A well deserved lunch in Fowey after our Nordic Walk – with ‘free protein in a salad’ proving everything in Cornwalll is fresh!
Ans speaking of food our next Adventure Nordic Walk is to Mole Valley for a ‘Fat Boys breakfast’ – Want to be there? – Get in touch, get qualified, get along – meet new people, have fun, improve fitness….IMPROVE YOUR LIFE!!
