Nordic Walking

Ok, I admit it!! When I first saw people Nordic walking I thought It looked wierd. I never even considered doing it until I read an article about it this month. Here are some things I like - now that I've tried it :
Its a good balance help - especially on icy surfaces
Its a full body workout
Its easier on my joints, especially when packing moonbeam.
I don't have to walk as far to get a good workout so it saves me time.
The neighbors and assorted family members give me strange looks ( I have an unusual sense of humor so that amuses me).
The poles can also be used as a primitive weapon to fend off attacking chipmunks.

Fitness tip 101 : Con Your Kids

This is Karsten's "Special Rock". He likes to ride his bike to it while I hike. I can usually con him into riding further if I ask him to go to "special rock".

Now that she's out of her pack, she can do her favorite passtime - play with and suck on her toes!!
