Go at your own pace, it really doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are. Jogging or running is a great way to take a bit of time out and clear your head.
You can jog with the buggy or on the way home from dropping the kids at school. Starting with a friend or joining a beginner’s group makes it sociable too.
