In this episode, I’m talking to Derek Holloway, who qualified as a British Nordic Walking instructor in September 2021, which is a remarkable achievement, as in 2018, during the Beast from the East, Derek contracted pneumonia.  Whilst in hospital recovering, he suffered a stroke, which affected his limbs and mobility.  Through perseverance, physiotherapy and nordic walking, Derek has regained his fitness and has kindly agreed to share his experience with us today.
