Welcome to Loughgall Country Park
Lets go walking…
Here are a few useful tips.
· People who currently take no exercise will gain most from any increase in physical activity.
· If you're not in the habit of taking regular exercise, start slowly, enjoy being out and about, and gradually build up to the recommended 30 minutes walking a day.
· Drink a glass of water before and after you walk and don't forget, wear good comfortable shoes.
· Walk safely – observe the Highway Code and wear bright, reflective clothing. · Remember, loose clothing is more comfortable and in winter, add light layers rather than thick chunky clothes. It's much better
· If you have a history of heart trouble or other significant medical illness, talk to your doctor before you start.
· Stop, if you have unusual symptoms, such as chest pain, breathlessness or dizziness and consult your doctor.
· Why not invite your friends, family or work colleagues to join you when you go out walking..
