Half Marathon Training

Your First Half and Beyond

Half Marathon Training

Make room on that medal rack for bigger medals.

Right here, you get schedules, a coach, videos, a knowledge base, and more. Everything you need to succeed.

As you target your first half, you'll need to take your cross training and strength training to the next level, but more than anything else, you'll need a strategy for building endurance, safely.

Train Wisely

Push yourself, recover, push a little more

You need a realistic, appropriate plan, one that will provide enough endurance building but also adequate rest and recovery.

The First Half Marathon Schedules have you running just four days a week and just walking the other days. A 2-mile walk is all you need on your non-running days.

About Your Instructor

Debbie Voiles

Debbie Voiles


By the time I became a certified coach, I had been running 30 years; yet, I was blown away by how much I learned and its immediate impact on my running. 

That’s when I set out to spread the word about the proven, most successful ways to train.

You can have what I have. I’m 64. I don’t take any medications, my blood pressure is ideal, blood work is excellent, and knees are fine, even though I've been running 41 years.

I'm happy to share what I've learned. Most critical for new runners is training at an appropriately low intensity and listening to their bodies.

I give my clients permission to walk - a lot - for a while, to give their bodies time to adjust. 

I created a Facebook group for online coaching members to have a place to ask me questions and to interact with others in the this program, making the online experience a bit closer to that of my 'in person' coaching clients.
