I ran a 10k marathon last week for the first time and it was fun! Some guys were running shirtless, so that was nice to see haha  Cheesy

Any of you runners that participated in a marathon before?

I haven't yet, but I'm open to the idea?

How much do you need to train prior?

For a full marathon, at least a year (definitely more for true beginners who haven’t ran much)

For a half marathon, probably around 6 months. Jogging on a regularly like 3-4 days (30 minutes) a week helps your body ease your way into it

I'm not sure what you mean with the term 10k marathon?  Huh?

A 5k is 3.1 miles, a 10k is 6.2, a half-marathon is 13.1 and a marathon is 26.2 miles.

So the term you used, 10k marathon, genuinely confuses me! If you just mean a 10k then I did an official chip timed 10k yesterday, it took me 55mins, and I've been running just 3 or 4 miles once or twice a week for 2 years to get fit enough for that time (combined with a weight loss diet).

My best half marathon is in 2hrs 10mins -again with the occasional running making me fit enough for that.

I'm not feeling ready for a marathon with the training I have done. It would take me at least 6 months of increased training I think.

Nice!!

By 10k, I mean 10 kilometers, which is exactly 6.2 miles like you said. My city hosted one a month ago, so I guess it’s like a quarter of full marathon.
