First time using a training plan and it made such a positive difference to have structure in place with Training Peaks. Any questions I had on any aspect of it were always answered quickly by coach Steve and he explained things in simple easy to follow language with great hints and tips along the way. First class service and I will be back!
I loved your plan [INTERMEDIATE HALF DISTANCE 24 week plan (50yrs+)] ,I bought last spring so much now I am looking for a winter base training plan!
The 32-week plan (which I followed to a tee, minus a few swims) was truly phenomenal and was instrumental in helping me reach my goal of a sub-12hr (albeit “unofficial”) FULL DISTANCE finish… (My friend and I mapped out the FULL DISTANCE course and did it, along with a few other diehards, on the exact date the race would have taken place). The official entry was rolled into 2021 so I’m gearing up for what I hope will be another PR.
Coach Steve had the job of mentoring & preparing me for the IM Cork and a half-distance event in Galway.
Without his guidance/tips and tricks, I would not have got on as well as I did.
His humor/patience / experience were all vital and helped get me and also many others through the day”
Just back from an excellent training camp on the full-distance cork course hosted by coach Steve and Niall , very informative and great attention to detail, despite some challenging weather managed to get some solid training done, have a bit of craic and pick up some very useful tips, couldn't reccomend these camps enough !!!!
Thanks @SMendursolns for your fantastic help with my FULL DISTANCE Nice HALF DISTANCE Personal Best this year – with your help I exceeded my goals and I’m on track for another PB in 2019.
Thank you Coach and I love the training so far. I only wish i lived somewhere close by to train with you, because i see the positive benefits of your plans remotely!
Great plan! Gives you also excellent base fitness to participate half marathons and sub 5 hr cycling events.
Great help, and very quick responses to specific problems and issues. Really good service, that I would highly recommend!
Had to start from scratch in my triathlon career andCS was recommended to me by a friend. He has been awesome from start to finish – "No such thing as a stupid question – unless you ask it too late" to quote the man himself … he is patient, detail-focused and seems to give a shit! I already have completed my first sprint and standard distances and am thinking long next year… all possible due to CS – thank you so much (p.s. I also beat the friend who recommended CS to me – first time ever)
I completed the Dublin Marathon based off your training plan from June.
My first marathon ( done a couple of halves before) and first time trying running in HR zones rather than just run as fast as you can.
Delighted with my result. Thanks
I'm doing my 5th full IM this year – IMCA and chose Coach Steve's plan as I liked the longer duration and the 50+ training plan – 2 weeks hard, 1 lighter week. I had a complication tho as I'm doing the St George HALF DISTANCE WC in mid Sept then have 2.5 weeks of travel between St George and IMCA. Coach Steve came up with a revised plan that allowed for my race, recovery, travel and then enough key workouts to be ready for IMCA.
A great job, very responsive and I highly recommend him as a Coach!
