Coach Steve put together a comprehensive training plan for 70.3 Mallorca. Steve took the time to make sure the plan takes into account Christmas break, my other commitments (college) and B races along the way. I’m really happy with it and started training this week with only 20 weeks to go to the race. Bring it on!!!
Just by way of saying thank for being my coach during my time leading up to the Ironman Triathlon in Barcelona in Oct 2016.
During this time I found you very knowledgeable and helpful on providing advice and structure on the training plan you set for me. The detail was very helpful in understanding what was required both from each of the training session as well as the delivery of the race day performance. Your knowledge experience and understanding of the requirements showcased your knowledge of the sport and Ironman distance racing.
Great plan! I had a 12 min PR on exact same course from 2 yrs ago. Even in some hot conditions I met all my goals and felt confident and strong the entire race. I felt the plan was very efficient and effective for someone wanting to be competitive in AG. I already purchased the middle distance plan with big goals for that one as well. Thankful!!!
I wanted to say thanks!, simply Thanks! and thank you a lot. I followed mostly the 20 weeks plan for Training for my 70.3 and beat 3 out of my 4 goals.
1. finish under 6 hours – done
2. finish my 13.1 under 2h30 mins – done
3. be in aero for the most part of the bike – done
4. swim under 30 mins – not done but very very close!
I liked everything that you put in the program and although sometimes I was tired, life got in the way, or had other commitments, it was by all means v
Thanks Coach Steve for the great plan. I completed my 1st Marathon the United States Coast Guard Marathon as a veteran this was very special to me to complete. After shopping an overwhelming amount of beginner marathon plans on TrainingPeaks your plan “Beginners Marathon for Off Season Triathletes” was the perfect fit for me. My run base was pretty good but I have a hard time recovering from tons of running. This is what made this plan perfect for me was adding in the swim and bike between runs
I’m actually wrapping up one of your plans right now for a half iron in Waco on Oct 16th. Really enjoy using your plans as they truly help me finish strong and give me great confidence going into race day
This isn't just a stock plan. I've entered my first 70.3 and wanted some structure to my training, with the benefit of some questions if needed. This plan has been spot on, the workload, and the descriptions are easy to follow and build up gradually. Steve has been extremely helpful from day 1 in providing advice and tailoring the programme (i.e. Covid & no pools!). If you have entered any form of triathlon I cant recommended enough how valuable these plans are. Thanks Steve!
I'm loving the plan so far!!!
I purchased the Beginner Ironman 22 week (50yrs+) plan that included email access to Coach. So far I am very pleased with this heart rate based plan. I was also pleased to see a training plan designed for my particular age group. This plan helps greatly to organize my weekly workouts. And if you have a Garmin Forerunner 935 watch, this plan can be synced to Garmin app which makes it even simpler to keep track! Join the Facebook group to get your questions answered is an awesome feature!
I couldn't recommend Smart Endurance Solutions more highly. I am currently undertaking their over 50's HR based intermediate ironman training plan after having completed their base building/maintenance plan earlier in the year. I have found both plans to be enjoyable , rewarding and have seen fantastic results. Progress has been steady and each stage has fitted my age and fitness profile perfectly. I have found communication and advice extremely helpful.
After completing my 70.3 in Barcelona at 5:53, I joined the PB Hit squad for improved training. Coach Steve and Coach Mark’s meticulous sessions and calls transformed my performance. With their guidance, I’ve achieved numerous PB’s since then. The PB Hit squad is the ultimate training experience for progress. I am sure that by joining the PB hit squad it has transformed my training.
Hi Coach Steve! I’m loving this plan you have developed. Thank you!
