Loved this plan. Completed the sprint in the middle of the pack instead of back of the pack which I had done previously. Life changing having these goals in many ways. Steve is a dude and I can see myself doing a lot more of his plans. 🙏🙂
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.
Coach Steve’s HALF DISTANCE training plan not only got me to the finish line on my first HALF DISTANCE FULL DISTANCE event, but managed to prepare me well enough to beat my expected 6 hours by 22 minutes!
Will most definately stick to SMart Endurance for my next event.
Steven set me up with my first HALF DISTANCE training plan back in 2015 and I haven’t looked back since. He designed a structured, balanced and personalized plan that enabled me achieve all my goals and far more!
Steven always gave great feedback for my sessions while remaining lighthearted and making sure i stayed grounded!
I would highly recommend his training plans to anyone looking to make gains from whatever level they’re at.
I crushed the race! Placed 3rd in my age group! First time I’ve made the podium in any race. Huge confidence boost, and it was nice to see my hard work reflected
As someone who needs structure to my training I found working with Steve invaluable. Constant feedback helped keep me focused and when I was unfortunate to pick up an injury we worked together to ensure training was back on track.
1st in AG at Goulburn Duathlon over the weekend!
Was feeling a little underdone on training due to illness, but had followed Coach Steve's plan as best I could.
Conditions were freezing and windy on the day, but a great feeling of accomplishment post race.
This plan is exactly what I needed! I started from nothing at age 57 and I finished a HALF DISTANCE 6 months later in 6.5 hours. I am so proud of myself. Coach Steve helped through all along the way by responding to every little email question I had. When I came to the start line I felt so well prepared thanks to Coach Steve’s training plan!
Have been using your intermediate 24 week marathon plan and ever since I have embraced your zone based system of training – I am already seeing benefits – my avg HR is down 5 beats on my long runs and I am still able to run 8 min miles really comfortably – excited to see how much more I can improve – I will let you know!!!
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.
I took the 18 weeks marathon plan to prepare for my first marathon and succeeded! The plan and Steves support definitely contributed to reaching my goal!
The plan it self was very good and clear, and gave good variation. The quick and enthousiast email support from Steve to answer any kind of questions was a very nice addition.
Will come back in future when I need a plan and support. Keep up the good work!
The Training plan you have done out for me is going really well. Pushing me harder than I have ever gone but my fitness is flying up. Thank you very much.
