From lockdown to 5k…and with a smile!

Weeks five & six in the bag!!…We knew you could do this!  So here we bring weeks seven & eight!

We all know that running is great for us…It improves our fitness; it helps with our stress levels…it evens boosts our confidence. It helps to tone our physiques…and can even help to grow our social networks! What not to like! Are you feeling it already?!

Welcome to the first of our new Running Bear

“I can do this” virtual “beginners running groups”…We are now on weeks eight and nine!!

Every Monday we will be giving you all the guidance that you will need to take you from a beginner to a 5k hero…and in fifteen weeks!

It’s easier in a group, it’s easier with a friend! Invite a friend to be your running buddy!

If you need any advice on the kit that you need or the trainers to wear, Running Bear is open online to help! https://runningbear.co.uk/

So…Let’s go!! We know you can do this!!

Break up your exercise to allow for short intervals of running. Use you watch…pick out lampposts…enjoy the moment!
