5:35 in my debut 70.3 and all thanks to your program.
I loved every minute of it!
Just a quick note… I am very happy with the plan and its workouts … [Advanced IRONMAN 44 week plan]
Signed up for my first IM which was due to take place in August 2021. Although the race itself was canceled, some friends and I decided to do the IM distances ourselves in June. Admittedly I cut the training short by 2 months but with that said I was still more then prepared and breezed through the swim, bike and run. I can't say enough good things about the program and when it comes Coach Steve himself, he is always on hand with speedy email responses and a wealth of knowledge!
I want to let you know that my son, CJ Hoff, finished his Ironman Wisconsin last weekend. It was brutally cold and wet. Rained all day. He used your beginning plan, originally supposed to be for Texas but had to move to Wisconsin.
He is 18 and this was his first triathlon. He will be heading to Boot camp for the Marines on Monday. The training was a great success and perfect for getting him ready for the military. Thank you!
With this time I became 4th in my AG (36 woman) AND I won a slot for the IM70.3 WC in St. George End of October! What a great success
Thanks again for your guidance and your training plan.
Thanks for the IronMan training plan Coach Steve.
Just finished IronMan Austria with a new personal best. Felt really good during the race and only the hot temperatures of ~35 degrees Celsius stoped me from getting an even better finishing time. The plan was great, with lots of long rides and runs that proved their worth during the race. Very important: i don't have any next day pain after the race (I can even do squats) so the recovery went so well. Highly recommend your plan to anyone. Thanks
I am really enjoying the 70.3 program!
Steve’s attention to detail is impeccable! No stone unturned.I did an Olympic triathlon about 7 years ago and said it was my last! Here I am at 53 having just finished one and looking forward to the next one! It’s never too late!Steves coaching in all disciplines helped me more than achieve my goals. Would highly recommend you reach out to him.Always good to have a professional pushing you through to the next level!
Finished with a 6:09 and change. I was really happy with it overall.
Appreciate all your help along the way!
I would like to say thank you again for your support. I finished my #7 Ironman in personal best 10:05h. The bike course was 5km longer and the transition area was super long. So I believe i would have been sub 10 🙂 I’m very happy with my performance/results.
Have loved reading the SMartEnduro Community updates and motivational stories over the past year. Have done a few sprints and Olympics during the season but waited until my A race to post. Firstly, thanks to coach Steve for setting out a progressive and challenging training programme. I won’t lie, I didn’t stick to it meticulously but it was great motivation when other things, covid, family, life, posed distractions!!
Coach Steve had the job of mentoring & preparing me for the IM Cork and a half-distance event in Galway.
Without his guidance/tips and tricks, I would not have got on as well as I did.
His humor/patience / experience were all vital and helped get me and also many others through the day”
