Long Covid and Nordic Walking with Ann
Show Notes

In episode 43, I am discussing a very relevant topic to the times that we are living in, namely Long Covid..  Today I am joined by Ann, who caught Covid in September 2021 while working as a teaching assistant supporting primary school children with additional needs.  Due to underlying asthma, she became very ill with covid, which led to pneumonia and a three week stint in hospital, including a week in  ITU.  On leaving hospital, Ann struggled just to walk around her house, never mind down the road, as the fatigue was exhausting  and she found it difficult to breathe. By Christmas she’d had enough and decided to take back control of her health. At this point, she discovered Tracy Hall’s group of Sherwood Nordic Walkers and this proved a turning point in her recovery, as we are about to hear.
