Well June has got off to a sunny and warm start with 2 new routes for both the Sunday and Thursday club - with more holiday makers in Cornwall it's adjustment time to allow for parking - however that does not detract from the quality of our nordic walks - On line classes are trundling along, we have stared to slowly move away form spine focus and getting back to the pelvic floor, we have always worked around the body with focus on specific areas, time change form next Monday, we start at 0930 and NOT 10am - Enjoy the sun when you get it, and stay safe, stay fit, be happy!!

It was almost perfect weather for nordic walking for the Sunday group when they visited The Dodman after 7 months away - the highest point of the coastal path on the south coast - although the wind was cooler with sprinkles of rain - the Monday club were off an another new route at Cornwalls 'Hidden Corner' - setting off from Maker and along the coastal path - the final hill was GR8 workout and showed the group are no ;anger Siblyback Strollers!!!!! Cardinham woods 5k will be tested by the Nord Trailers this Friday - before then the Thursday club will be at Rock and then the Upper deck for a table and a bite to eat - it's all go, go , go on line sessions stated with a circuit/pilates combo - we actually got an in and out session at the first time of asking! - The sun shine seems to have elevated everything- just hoping it's here to stay for a while…

AT LAST!!! - We get weather that starts to cross the border into summer! - Lerryn had blue sky Monday - a gr8 nordic walk on the light side - Thursday and the wind direction changed anew had warmth at Cardinham after a frosty start - the blue sky makes all of the difference - so much so that the poles actually go faster!! Times have been quicker - smiles are always the same - but this week the teeth were glinting in the suns rays! - On line fitness means the weather can be enjoyed because the p n p ensures the sessions are always there - FINALLY with lighter, blue sky mornings we get more attending worm catchers, an 0730 perfect start to the day - next up is The Dodman- a return after 7 months to SW Cornwall

WHAT A WEEK! - AT LONG LAST WE HAVE THE WEATHER ON OUR SIDE AFTER A VERY WET, WINDY AND RATHER NIPPY SIBLYBACK LAKE ON MONDAY - TO A SPRING DAY NORDIC WALK SATURDAY.

Monday may have been adverse conditions, but the Nordic walkers turned up in force for what turned out to be our largest group to date - must have been the cabin fever! - Thursday was another new route and a first time at Meldon - whilst being in fog on the ridges, and although still a little 'swampy' in the valleys, the sun did shine and we missed any rain - the weeks weather has slowly improved and it was at it's best for a 'Barn Storming' nordic walk by the Saturday on a Sunday group in support of the fireman's charity - they smashed the pace and it was a fantastic achievement on a brilliant day! Also very strange that it was the first time a live tis was DIDN'T TAKE PLAVE IN 5 YEARS - PNP all the way for the on line fit family - all in all db fit family have had a gr8 week - looking forward to moving the bar - 'just a little higher'!

The Monday club are pushing the boundaries and everyone is achieving more every week - originally the Siblyback Strollers, they now are expanding routes as fitness increases - this nordic walk at Padstow was a fantastic afternoon - we had blue sky and at long last not a hint of rain - beautiful Cornish beaches and countryside - and all topped off with a swamp to keep motivation high!! Gr8 group - gr8 fun - and coffee to complete

16th Feb and this is the route around Siblyback lake for the NORD TRAIL - we practiced 'pacing' 100 steps trail run - 100 nordic walking - it gave the fastest time so far over the route - NORD TRAIL is the combo - it os not just one or the other - pacing helps to give a gr8 balance especially when on a more flat route

It's not the weather or terrain or even the views that make a gr8 nordic walk…..It's the people in the group - due to half term Thursdays club this week was more 'cosy' - weather was also 'Mizzly' but this did not detract from it being another gr8 nordic walk - stopping half way for a coffee at Charlestown (where did all of the people come from?) it was then a tortoise and hare return - a bit of nord trail was also thrown in!!

5 NOV 2023

It was a last minute change of todays planned session with db polers today due to rain logged ground and a fallen tree - however we resurrected the old school 'Hill' route, some rain but we also had blue sky, gr8 company and a coffee mole to finish - oh and we also had the social committee meeting who have suggested a mid Xmas special - watch this space - being looked at now.
