I did yesterday, had fun. The weather was crisp but sunny. I like longish walks, so I did about 9 km. I slightly overworked the skin on my feet, probably the socks I wore weren't the best for this :-) Nobody's doing nordic walking in my area so I was a little shy to hit the road with my poles, but I'm glad I finally did!

I have thought about trying this also. I would love to know what you think about it if you try it.

Good luck!

Thanks! I found an article somewere on the web about cross training for runners (to think about myself as a runner is just so LOL) and they said that cross country skiing is great cross training. Nordic walking is just that-only without your skis. So I'm going to turn my laptop off and hit the road (with my poles)
Good day to you!

I would think it would be a good part of whatever else you decide to do that day. You might also check it out with one of the team coaches.
Have a great week!

Is nordic walking a good idea for cross training days?
