The HALF DISTANCE training plan from Steve was brilliant and was key to completing my first HALF DISTANCE. 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 FULL DISTANCE Full which shows how good Steve and his plans are! Highly recommend to anyone starting their Triathlon journey!
Thought I would drop you a quick message to thank you for your useful info/assistance. Last Saturday at the age of 66 I completed the full distance in 14hrs 45. I was first in my age group out the swim!
I definitely will recommend you to others.
Steve’s training plans are really well tailored by event, duration, ability and age-group. Following his plan has made a step change to my training. Even though there has been no formal racing of late, I have seen continuous improvements in training ‘test sessions’ and virtual races. It has also been reassuring to have email access to Steve when the questions / doubts / second-guessing can creep in.
Thank you Steve.
Used the “Marathon Intermediate 12 week plan – 40 – 70 km per week” and it brought me from a 4hr16 marathon to a 3hr25 marathon. Great plan and easy to follow. Volume is sufficient and not too much and therefore I managed to stay injury free.
Thanks for answering my training plan query so quickly … Ran my fastest 1km during a 10km run, and just increased my FTP on the bike (by 5%) last night on the bike trainer without me pushing to do it….just happened.
So I am excited to see where this all ends up in a few months
Awesome plan, really seeing the gains as I go into the build phase of the plan, Steve responds quickly to emails while also providing interesting information along the way, will buy from Steve again 5 stars from me.
I jumped into triathlon after not having done hardly any exercise for over a decade. I did a sprint to see if this was something I liked and I did. I signed up for a IMHALF DISTANCE and immediately bought Steve's HALF DISTANCE plan. I quickly saw progress with his extremely well structured plan and finished feeling great. Had it not been for Steve's plan I would have struggled to train and definitely would not have been able to finish like I did. I'm buying his IM plan and continuing on to the next level. Thanks!
I’m really enjoying your plan, exactly what I needed. From my previous HALF DISTANCEs, I feel that a lack of volume in training was my downfall. I was just making it up as I went along so this is a good change.”
My training for the Peach Classic Olympic distrance tri went very well. I felt so prepared and fit coming into my race thanks to following your training plan. I have never felt so ready and confident for a race. I ended up winning second in my age group, and as it was a provincial championship race, I got a podium moment, a medal, and a prize bottle of wine. I will definitely try another training plan next year!
I hope you have an amazing summer and thanks again for your great program!
Vancouver triathlon (olympic) was today for me with a PB, despite being with minimal sleep and training in the past 40 days (baby was born)! I haven't received the results yet but I am happy with the experience and my performance! Felt good passing some people with Team Canada jerseys on that bike! Thanks again Coach Steve for the support!
Great plan so far btw!
I have been taking your Olympic program and it is going really well. I’ve seen so much improvement!
