Using your plan got me through my first FULL DISTANCE event in Wales, Tenby on the 15th of September.
Only 1 or two changes were made to the plan because of weather or pool being closed, a good 95% or more of the workouts were completed as expected. No injury, no excessive fatigue – fantastic, thank you!
Just short thoughts and memo at the other side of the incredible experience that was FULL DISTANCE Emilia-Romagna.
All in all, a great day, great race, incredible race course, quite manageable, and in the end my time was even better than I expected.
I want to thank you for the program I used. It got me well prepared and it was never the overwhelming experience I was afraid of in the beginning. So, if nothing else, a big THANK YOU for your part in making the whole experience as great as it was. It was even that great, that I am almost sure to do this again
Training to a plan built by someone who knows what they’re talking about has made a huge difference. For me having the structure outlined by Steven was motivating, but more importantly it has improved my enjoyment of racing and without-doubt has improved my times. I have had sprint and olympic PBs already this season and with Dublin HALF DISTANCE on the horizon I am confident of a PB at that distance too.
I am using coach Steve's intermediate 20 week plan to prepare for this season. Every session is super easy to follow, when loaded into TrainingPeaks they sync with my watch which is great! If I do have a question I can email Steve, and he's always quick to respond with clarifications and encouragement :-). My power has increased on the bike, and I have PB'd a local 10k race already in the build up to the season. Highly recommend getting one of these plans. I am going get aHALF DISTANCE plan next
Just wanted to say thanks for your advanced Oly training program I enjoyed it and used it for my race this weekend (1500 m lake / 28 mi bike / 10 K run). Fun getting back into it, even if a little more effort beating the “young bucks” now that I am 50 years young/old!
[Overall placing 5th of 175/AG placing 1st 50-54]
Made the most of lockdown with your base training plan and emailed advice – coming out the other side stronger and faster (on bike and run anyhow!) – just need to work out my race schedule for next year but I will be in touch for a full plan! Thanks Steve
Thanks for your help in identifying a plan to prepare for FULL DISTANCE Cork, found it brilliant and really useful to give me the structure I needed.
Looking forward to race day
I just finished my HALF DISTANCE—Gulf Coast HALF DISTANCE and I felt amazing! Thanks for all your help along the way. I got carried away and crushed the bike so my run suffered but I in the end I'm so pleased that I finished HAPPY AND HEALTHY!
I just thought I would drop you a line to say thank you for your help in the build-up to my first FULL DISTANCE. It was a big big help having a structured plan to follow and it’s been a massive learning curve these last twelve months.
So I actually finished the damn thing, amazing really!!, was doubting myself a bit at the start line but I had a FANTASTIC day in Barcelona. It was an experience I think I will remember forever, and I enjoyed it so much I reckon I’m going back next year!!! 🙂 I’ve been well and truly bitten by the tri bug.
All is great I'm loving the structure and logical process
I have been using Coach Steve’s maintenance and race prep plans for 9 months. The plans have been great: easy to follow, clear progression and enjoyable. The icing on the cake has been the quick and thoughtful input I have received along the way – invaluable! I have gone from being a middle-of-the pack finisher to qualifying for the HALF DISTANCE FULL DISTANCE World Championship in St George in my last race. 50+ and getting better. I can highly recommend Coach Steve and his plans.
Thanks for your plan/support, today I managed to keep a pace of 4:50 throughout the whole 1/2 marathon achieving a PB on this route.
