How to run 5km as a beginner.


So, it’s been 4 weeks I dusted my shoes to get back into fitness after baby 3.  Yep .. I have a 9 week old baby and I think it’s safe to say that it has not been a walk in the park. 

-For one my body is older than it was 5 years ago when I initially lost weight.
-Two, I have 2 older children to look after plus a business. 

This time though, I have decided I am not running a race and I am going to try my best in the little time I have.. 
To help me on this Journey, I have set myself little targets out of my big goal. First of which was to be able to run 6km at a go in October.
