    *******PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL TRAINER OR HAVE MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE SO REMEMBER WHEN YOU COME OUT WITH ME AND THE GROUP IT IS RECOGNIZED THAT YOU HAVE READ ALL THE INFORMATION AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR SELF. I AM A VOLUNTEER ONLY!!********

    *****  If anyone has a medical condition please get the okay from your Doctor and mention your condition to your leader in case you require some kind of attention if something goes wrong on the trail!!  *****

    There has been a request to help those who have an interest in becoming a hiker. THIS WILL BE A SLOW PACED WALK TO START SO THOSE WHO WISH A FAST PACED WALK WILL BE DISAPPOINTED!!

    This is a training session to help you increase your stamina, pace and  strength for those HILLS and to eventually complete a 15km + walk/hike . 

    A different park each month every Saturday at 10am is the plan for 2 hours. No matter what the weather (except extreme wind or a big downpour) if you are really interested in doing this.  Your goal is to complete as much of the area as you can in two hours.

    It will be tough to start with but you will be surprised how quickly you can increase your ability by being consistent. You have to be diligent, honest with yourself and truly make an effort. Which means I won't always be able to be there with you but if the same area is done each month you still have variety and something to compare your abilities with. For instance it usually takes 2 - 2 1/2hrs to complete the whole of Aldergrove Park so don't expect to do that off the bat, that will be your goal. It can actually be done in less time than that but that is really fast paced but we want to also enjoy the park. ENJOYMENT IS THE KEY, YOU DO NOT WANT TO FEEL LIKE THIS IS TORTURE OR GRUNT WORK. 

    We want to breath, sweat a little, laugh and have fun. You may be sore but that passes and it should be a good hurt to let your body know that it is working but increasing gradually in strength.
