Early Saturday morning a bunch of eager walkers from as far as Hilton attended the Walking Clinic given by Natalie le Roux.
She shared her truely inspirational life story, some of her future goals, nutrition, how to train for a race and a little bit about KZN Masters Athletics before taking us through the warm up routine. Boy was that difficult!!! ‘Pulling the line from your navel’, ‘rocking the baby’, ‘loosening those hips’ and ‘activating the shins’ made us all look at bit silly, but we soon saw the benefits of all these movements.
After a few stretching exercises we walked up to Bulwer Park where Natalie explained how we should approach the up hills and downhills, and some other techniques. We did a couple of rounds in the park showing off our new moves.
The clinic was enjoyed by all and several walkers showed interest in future events. So watch this space.
Thanks to Natalie for sharing your knowledge in such a humble way.
Thanks to Jodi Pastorino from KZNMA for joining us.
Thanks to Stella Athletic Club for hosting the clinic.
Thanks to Michael Mostert who took the initiative in asking for a donation towards the Elders Voice and thanks to everyone who gave from the heart.
I’ll end with a very appropriate saying coming from our own Frankie…
WALK WITH PURPOSE!!
