In June 2019 I started Nordic Walking three times a week on a regular basis. When I first started, I was very unfit but with time and perseverance I gradually became stronger and found I could walk further and for longer. The biggest bonus of Nordic Walking has been the effect it has had on my blood pressure.
While my medication has remained the same, my blood pressure is now consistently within normal range, but only as long as I keep Nordic Walking.
In September I completed a 7km hike through the Lousios Gorge to the Prodromou Monastery in Greece, something I would never have contemplated or have managed before I took up Nordic Walking.
Thank you for introducing NW to Canberra, for your ongoing encouragement and support and for all the fun group activities.
I just love it!
