Covid 19 – Suspension of WALX Derwent and Dales

In these difficult times we are having to make a decision that WALX DERWENT AND DALES will have to suspend all walks during the current Covid 19 pandemic.

It has been a quite a fast-paced moving situation in a chaotic and bizarre week with a lot of mixed messaging. Two things are abundantly clear though – social distancing can’t work in our walking areas where other people are disrespecting the space and the disease is spreading faster.

You have been part of a wonderful supportive community which has helped make a difference to so many lives. It taken 12 years to build this business that grew from my own adversity. I can’t thank you enough for being a part of that and being part of my vision of how I wanted to bring a healthy fresh air fitness practice into people’s lives.

We still heartily recommend that you try and get out for some fresh air, even if it is to walk around your garden, the block or a local park. Avoid busy times when it is awkward to allow social distancing.

Whether you opt for bone-density-boosting walking or running, or head to a small green patch for some body weight training, or discover the delights of the park bench gym, the variety of exercise you can do outside is probably more than you realise. Changes in terrain, workout surface and even wind resistance can all provide an added challenge to your workout. Boost your vitmain D and endorphins to keep your immune system strong.

As always, if you do need me to help you through this with either a smile, chat or virtue coffee, just get in touch.

Maybe it is time that Mother Nature wants her earth back just for a little while.

I will write again when the walks are able to safely start again.
