In these difficult times I had to make the decision that White Peak Nordic Walking will have to suspend all walks during the current Covid19 pandemic.
Two things are abundantly clear though – social distancing can’t work in our walking areas where other people are disrespecting the space and the disease is spreading faster.
You have been part of a wonderful supportive community which has helped make a difference to so many lives. I can’t thank you enough for being a part of that and being part of my idea that I wanted to bring a healthy fresh air fitness practice into people’s lives.
I still recommend that you try and get out for some fresh air, even if it is to walk around your garden, the block or a local park. Avoid busy times when it is awkward to allow social distancing.
Whether you opt for walking or running, or head to a small green patch for some body weight training, or discover the delights of the park bench gym, the variety of exercise you can do outside is probably more than you realise. Changes in terrain, workout surface and even wind resistance can all provide an added challenge to your workout. Boost your vitamin D and endorphins to keep your immune system strong.
Maybe it is time that Mother Nature wants her earth back just for a little while.
I will write again when the walks are able to start safely again.
Keep safe, stay healthy
