I used to be able to run 5-10k about 3yrs ago (I found out I was pregnant 1 week after doing a 10k race!!)
Now that my little one is not so little anymore! I want to get back into running as its free and can fit around work/childcare.
I am going to start with the C25k and see how I get on as I have a local Parkrun 5 mins from my house but too scared to go as I am so unfit and would love to be able to actually run a little of the way before I make an idiot of myself!!
Anyone have any advice for a newbie? many thanks
Fellow newbie here but think your going the right way, use C25K to get back into the swing of things then use the weekly parkrun to see your improvements - you don't need to run the full parkrun but yes, you may want to see how you go first.
Ha Ha must be!! I thought I felt sick as I had pre-race nerves until I found out it was a bubba!! Thanks I will take a little look at the mums running thread
remember some people walk the whole of the park runs so you might as well go and even if you run/walk whatever you want it doesn't matter..............hope your comeback goes well..

Must be something about 10k. I found out I was expecting little C the afternoon I'd run a 10k
I think it's just running in general. Completing my first-ever 5k had a remarkable "effect" elsewhere.....
I help out at my park run , and regularly I,m sweeper,Its amazing how quickly runners improve one week I,m walk /jogging with a lady , a couple of weeks later and shes knocked 3 mins off her time and shes off.Well done you for getting back into it after having your little one, you,ll be blasting round your parkrun in no time !!!
