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.
I participated in the Philadelphia marathon in PA, USA. It was my first marathon and your plan really helped me through it!
Finished with a 6:09 and change. I was really happy with it overall.
Appreciate all your help along the way!
Thank you for helping me not only refind my training Mojo during all the COVID cancellations but also emerge from it a stronger biker than before…. your base sessions kept me motivated and challenged! Now onto IM Bolton in 2022!
Thanks again for your responses, its refreshing to speak to a coach who seems to care about what the athlete is purchasing
LOVE how the bike workout exports to Zwift!
Breast /lung Cancer from 2018 to 2020 chemo/radation 5 surgeries, COVID 3weeks before cork,3 kids working full time ,on the bucket list half ironman, everyone thought I was nuts, Steve didn't he believed in me and made me believe in myself, while it didn't work out on the day and I missed cut off for bike , I got thick and did my own 21 k ,just didn't cross that line , Steve has given me my confidence back, I can't recommend him enough, cork 70.3 2023, 💪💪💪💪
Second time I have used the plan [Intermediate 70.3 12 week plan] and I really like the workout descriptions and guidance
Finished my first 70.3 this weekend – a great swim, fast bike and good enough run put me just sub-6! thanks to the training plan for getting me there. @ niagara falls barrelman
I found Coach Steve’s training programme very useful and highly effective to reach and go further than what my goals were. The programme is easy to follow and having the the ability to converse with Steve on matters to do with training is a huge benefit. Can highly recommend Steve and his expertise!
For that B race we targeted, I came in 2nd overall and won my age group by a wide margin. It was great to get some experience with that length of event, to practice my transitions, and to get more confidence going into my A race (Olympic) in two weeks. As you suggested, I didn’t taper at all and was able to continue with the plan by the next morning. Strong testament I think to your plan. My body feels good. Thanks again.
Since we teamed up your coaching and advice has made a major difference & improvement to my training. Your analysis has highlighted instances where I was overtraining, brought a focus and rationale to training in the correct HR zones which has developed my endurance. Your coaching has also introduced proper periodization to my training. Crucially having you coaching me has taken away the usual second guessing that goes with setting one’s own training schedule. On the journey I have found that you listened well to my particular circumstances and been flexible and adaptive to suit my busy worklife. TrainingPeaks played a key role here also allowing me to lay out my work commitments in advance and you could tailor the training load and schedule to fit.
So thank you very much for the 2016 season and I look forward to working together again in 2017
