The term running means nothing to me...oh wait a minute...a jogging yes! That
Hi Shirley, weldone you! 3 and half stone is amazing and 5 kids wow! I also started out at jogging 5Ks, then up to 10K's, half marathon and now I'm training for my first marathon. It's taken me years to build up speed (two pregnancies in between) but everyone gets there eventually. Cougie is correct about your 10K. You don't need to change your entire diet for this distance. Just make sure you drink water on route and I would avoid alcohol before you run! I would also eat 2 hours before you go on your run as otherwise your food will not be digested and you may get a tummy ache. Good luck!
What everyone else has said. Well done on the weight loss and starting out. I'd not make any change to my diet for 10k but would make sure that i'm hydrated and not eating too closely to running (as Pipski mentioned).
