I appreciate your program. I felt like your training worked really well for me as well as how you set things up in Training Peaks, it was great to have trust in the HR zones and see the progression. The last Triathlon I did was in 2012, California 70.3 which I finished in 5:40. A decade later, I finished Florida 70.3 in 5:32, a new PR!
I used one of Steve's 2 month marathon training plans following IM Cork 70.3. The plan also included bike and swim. At no point did I feel like I was overtraining or being pushed over my limit. Steve was quick to respond to any questions I had. Highly recommended.
Both me and my wife are using 36 weeks ironman training program from smartendurancesolution, this will be her first full ironman and my third full ironman. This program we use now is specially made for ironman Italy / emilia – romania by smartendurancesolution. So i have good comperance on other programs, I highly recommend smartendurancesolution ironman training plan.
I just wanted to let you know (I’m sorry it’s 7 weeks post-Ironman) that I finished!!! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you answering my questions and for the training program that leads me to success and making me an Ironman!
I completed the 70.3 Base Plan and found it excellent. For me the biggest benefit was having the structured workouts and understanding what I was trying to achieve with each session. I could see myself progressing each week which helped with motivation. I also joined the PB Hit Squad and found this very useful. The weekly Zoom calls have allowed me to improve my triathlon knowledge which will help with the season ahead.
I haven't signed up yet but have been chatting through social media and I'm super excited to find my next 70.3 or Olympic distance Tri to train for, and hoping to sign up with Smart Endurance Solutions. Seems like an amazing value and at very reasonable price points! Happy training 🙂
The 70.3 training plan from Steve was brilliant and was key to completing my first 70.3. The balance of set training days alongside rest was perfectly balanced and fitted my family/work life without much stress. Steve was great at answering my e-mailed questions almost immediately and I have already been in touch to discuss my next plan for an Ironman Full which shows how good Steve and his plans are! Highly recommend to anyone starting their Triathlon journey!
Couldn't be happier with my IRONMAN training plan. Very easy to follow from a beginner's point of view
Hi Coach Steve! I’m loving this plan you have developed. Thank you!
Long distance debut yesterday….12hrs 56mins wow man I still can't believe it! Hats off to everyone doing it on regular basis…one hell of a distance! Thank you Coach Steve
On week 2 of the training and loving it, definitely feeling an improvement and know that my goal will be reached by the end of the plan. Also had a couple of questions in the beginning like most people do when starting a new plan and my questions were answered instantly which was great
Started with Steve on September 2018, training for Triathlon. I have seen tremendous improvements on my time and physical condition. Training are well designed and well monitored by Steve, how most of the times provides feedback to improve. Thank you!
