Not only did I podium my age group and PB’d, I felt great throughout training, and after the race. Felt good enough to go out after the race with my family and went to an all day music festival the next day. The way coach Steve’s plan manages intensity enabled me to stay injury free and still get in the best shape of my life at age 46. Only time I felt any tweak in my legs was a two day period when I stupidly deviated from the plan. Stick to the plan, it works!
I completed the HALF DISTANCE 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.
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.
The plan you recommended worked great for me. Especially being a noob! I will definitely be looking at another plan, thinking of upping my game to a HALF DISTANCE!!
My triathlon was last weekend and I came in 3rd in my group, master clydesdale.
Anyone looking to dip their toe into the world of triathlon and want a coach or a training plan look no further than Steve Moody. As someone on the wrong side of their mid forties and somewhat daunted by the thought of doing a full FULL DISTANCE I contacted Steve and I’m so glad I did. Steve was supportive, generous with his time ,very knowledgeable and always eager to help.In addition he regularly provides you with helpful hints to keep you motivated and on track with your training. Brilliant Coach
What a fantastic experience!!!!
I’m a normal athlete , 42 yr old , married man and two small kids … basically new into triathlon. But It was my dream to complete an IMHALF DISTANCE , after reading many reviews, decided to purchase a plan with Coach Steven Moody , and what a fantastic experience it has been, the flexible plan and the continuous support made my dream come true … The plan was balanced and accommodating to my schedule with work/family… and I was able to complete my first HALF DISTANCE FULL DISTANCE
After 4 attempts I finally broke my goal time for a marathon and QUALIFIED for Boston! All down to your plan … so delighted – thank you Coach Steve
Training is going well so far! Thank you so much for this plan. My bikes and runs are progressing nicely.
Coach Steve is phenomenal in providing efficient, detailed, and flexible training plans tailored to your goals. He is very responsive via email and is willing to help with any issue that you bring to his attention. I highly recommend!”
Really enjoyed your half marathon plan so I’ve bought your 20-week full marathon plan for Dublin – going to be great!
My Kona Qualification is a joint achievement by me working with Coach Steve. He took a chance on me almost 4 years ago when the only thing going for me was relentless consistency. I thought he would tell me what to do, to “train smarter” and if I did it to the letter, I would improve. What actually happened was much more collaborative, with us both listening to the other and sharing decisions together, modifying the plan as required, truly the difference between training and coaching
Steve’s plan was really great. I felt very well-prepared and ready my first HALF DISTANCE. I remember my first Olympic – done with some self-training/a tri club, no real “plan” per se – being anxious about the race. After using this training plan, I knew I could complete the race before I stepped foot on the course – it almost felt easy! Looking forward to using Steve’s plans again for my first FULL DISTANCE!
