Yeah, thatโ€™s plenty of time... the longest race plans Iโ€™ve seen are six months long... youโ€™ll be more than ready by June! Good decision, you have something to aim for during the winter.

Yep you'll definitely do it. Never try to increase your weekly distance by more than 10% to avoid injury and fatigue. When your running 8k you'll be amazed how way 5k feels!! You'll feel great when you cross that 10k line

Yes most definitely , plenty of time to do it .. even following the 10% weekly increase rule you will achieve 10K before then ..

Yes you can!

You'll breeze it. Best of luck. ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ‘

You will achieve this goal, plenty of time to train for it.

You will love it once you are done!

So glad there are other mad people out there! I've signed up for a half marathon in February, and the furthest I've run so far is 6K! Must be nuts ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚
