McArdle Disease - videos of walking tips

Some videos giving various tips on walking with McArdle Disease.

These were made mainly on the 'Walk over Wales' in 2010, when we didn't have time to practice or re-shoot so they are a bit rough edged, but do the job. Many thanks to Jamie Muir and Dan Chambers who filmed and all the McArdle participants. Hopefully there will be many more to follow in due course.

Please allow time for this page to load - these are links to Youtube. Click the 'More info' link in the top right corner of each video for some text explanation.
