Classes week beginning 13 September, next Nordic Walking Technique course and Memorial Service for Eric.

Hello,
We are slowly getting back to a more normal situation. I am still obsessed with ventilation so you will need jackets as the temperature drops.
We had some lovely weather for walks last week with stunning skies.



Next Nordic Walking Technique Course Saturday 25 September 1pm- Worden Park
Just such a wonderful way to exercise outdoors and it is sociable too. Book by going to Book a class – Do Fitness with Diane Oakden Poles are loaned to you for the Technique Course.

Memorial service for Eric

Our lovely class member Eric Nixon passed away last year after a short illness. He was much loved and I saw him every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Circuits classes along with his wife Zoe. He only didn’t attend if he was away on holiday! I personally really miss him and I still have the ‘buzzer timer’ that had made for me to let everyone know a minute was up. The service will be on Sunday 19 September at 3pm at Leyland Methodist Church Turpin Green Lane, Leyland. Everyone welcome to come.


Self Care September
Looking after yourself is so important in order to be able to care for others. I know many people in my classes have caring responsibilities – partners with health conditions, childcare responsibilities with grandchildren and parents who need support.
This month Action for Happiness Action for Happiness has a campaign called Self-care September. I think there are some really good reminders in the calendar if you click the link.
They say: Self-care isn’t selfish, it’s essential.  Self-care increases our resilience and helps us get more out of life.

Classes week beginning 6 September

Hello,
It was lovely to see everyone last week. We even had some beautiful weather for our Nordic Walks on Thursday. I know quite a few of you will be away during September so some classes might be quiet over the next few weeks.
I will be ventilating our venues as much as possible so you might need a jacket that you can put on for the gentler parts of the class. Also I will be asking you to wait outside until the start of class time – so an umbrella might be useful. This is all part of keeping indoor classes as safe as possible.


Chorley Buddies
As some of you know I have been involved with Chorley Buddies – a group set up during lock down to support anyone feeling isolated. I was asked to run exercise sessions for them – which was tricky with the ever changing regulations! They have been nominated for Radio Lancashire’s Make a Difference Award – here’s a chance to see me in my florescent pink tabard :

We are back from Wednesday 1 September

Hello,
We had a lovely time on the Llyn Peninsula, North Wales. The coastal walks are stunning and there are amazing beaches. My daughter and her friend tried Paddle Boarding which they really enjoyed.
Looking forward to seeing everyone from Wednesday 1 September when we start classes again. I know quite a few people will be going away in September so things might be quiet in class.

Week beginning 26 July

Hello and happy Sunday to you. I hope you are having a lovely weekend in the sunshine. It is not as hot as last week so it is much more enjoyable for most of us. During the hot weather it is really important to keep well hydrated and drink more if you are active. I know when you are busy it easy to forget to keep drinking but it is really important. Hydration | NHS inform
