Thank you so much, Coach Steve, for your support. Great tips on pre and race day which were very helpful.
After a couple weeks break, I'll be back at it and have some goals to reach. Would appreciate some advice on best training program to be ready for Santa Cruz and crush that course
Steve was very knowledgeable and kept things interesting. The program helped me to get a better understanding of my zones for training and I enjoyed being able to get advice on upcoming events.
Hi Steve, just a note to say thanks for all your assistance over the past year. I feel that I have improved since we started working together and am looking forward to working with next year in achieving my goals.
I purchased this Intermediate plan for my first Ironman. I had previously done a 70.3; for the 70.3 I made my own plan and struggled with overtraining. I felt this plan was just what I needed it to be, it provided a good structure, will a repeatable pattern, a steady build complemented by rest weeks. By the time my race came, I made a prediction table; due to my extensive training, my prediction was very accurate for each discipline. I recommend getting a training plan if its not your 1st.
Thank you for helping me not only refind my training Mojo during all the COVID cancellations but also emerge from it a stronger biker than before…. your base sessions kept me motivated and challenged! Now onto IM Bolton in 2022!
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!!!
Steve's plan helped me successfully complete my first 70.3! The plan was manageable and I felt like I was able to move my workouts around as my scheduled allowed. I will be using the plan again to train for my next 70.3. Steve also provided helpful emails throughout the training plan.
Thanks Steve, what and awesome day!! Never would have got to the start let alone crossed the line as an Ironman. Hope your day was good 👍 looks like all the guys smashed it 💪
I’ve found the marathon plan really effective so looking forward to getting started on your IM plan in a few weeks.
Just a big old thank you for the recent PB in my latest 70.3! Got over a little panic attack in the swim (partly thanks to the advice on the visualisation to help me get my mind in the game – mainly down to me MTFU ;-)) , smashed my bike and held it together for the run! I will be in touch re the next challenge – Ironman Barcelona in 2022!
I am entering the second week of the beginner 12 week Olympic distance triathlon plan. Really enjoying it so far.
I have seen many different types of leaders in my day – be that soldiers on the front line when I was serving with the United Nations Peacekeeping forces or business owners pulling their people through our recent economic turmoil – some bluff there way and some even falter but then there are those like Steve who just have it, who walk the talk and lead by example. His hard work and dedication forces you to raise your standards and when you are too tired to see this, he inspires you directly with daily and positive encouragement to stay the course and keep on keeping on. He reminds you of that ever so important WHY!! The WHY that gets you out of the bed at 5am to bike in the rain for endless hours. See, he to has that WHY and thats what drives his dedication, to better his craft, to learn more so he can do more and most importantly, give more.
When I first met Steve – yes, I could technically swim and yes, I owned a bike but I had NO business asking someone to get me injury free to the start and finish line of Ironman Barcelona – and in just four months!!
