I started doing Nordic walking last November. I enjoy it. You will find it gives more of your muscles a work out. eg. you core musles, arms, shoulders. It takes 2-3 times before you get the hang of it. I sugget you go try it. They will usually rent you poles for the first few times until you decide you want to purchase them.
I walk my dog so one had is busy. Nordic isn't for me at this time. I hear that it is great and I can see that you would get a better workout as you are using arms and legs. I hear it is also easier on knees for some reason.

Good Morning Everyone ~ I'm off to work in five minutes, and just wanted to check in to see if anyone has joined a Nordic Walking group. We have one here that starts Wed eve; they walk with a coach around the town with poles. If you've done it, let me know how you liked it... okay? This morning I danced for about 30 minutes, then did abit of yoga. Gotta get up at 5:15am to fit in exercise in the morning. First day back to work after spring break week, which felt like a month... so great.
So let me here from you please, and hope the moments of our day are beautiful and that we stay encouraged in making healthy choices! Warmly ~ Alaya
