I started in September with a training program of 14 weeks with 5 sessions per week. I followed everything as faithfully as possible and learned a lot from it. I already knew that I enjoyed variety, but there were some new training forms in there for me. I also found out that training at a very low heart rate really works.
I crossed the finish line in 2:07:26. Definitely a successful weekend.
Thanks very much for the plan – I’m doing the BEGINNER Time crunched FULL DISTANCE 36 week plan – I’m really enjoying doing it and looking forward to Septembers iron!
I Found Steves Intermediate Olympic training plan a gamechanger. The blended layout of lower and higher intensity workouts was perfect! His online support was also great, helping me out a few times. I will be using Steve again in 2024 for an FULL DISTANCE HALF DISTANCE plan.
Keep up the great work.
Thanks for tips on the journey Steve. I couldn’t stick to planned training with life/work, but improvised a little . Oh and got 6th in over 60 age category
I completed my first HALF DISTANCE this week. Thank you so much for the beginner training plan! The event was a blast, and I surprisingly completed/finished feeling strong. I was actually amazed that I was not tired during the run and I owe a lot of that to your plan. I am already browsing what other plans you have out there!
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 purchased your plan [Adv 48 week FULL DISTANCE] on Monday and wanted to let you know how pleased I am so far with the thought and detail that has gone into this plan
I’ve been working with Coach Steven as my coach since late 2015. He’s has a great flexibility to his approach which really suits any Athlete’s personal circumstances. Since he has been my coach I have achieved a number of personal bests at various distances, also I’ve learn’t a lot about the sport outside of the day to day training, understanding what to eat prior to a race, also how to prepare myself physically & mentally on race day.
TrainingPeaks is ideal for our Coach / Athlete relationship having a young family & busy job it allows us to plan ahead but move sessions easily if required. The rich data the platform provides also allows us to agree small changes to ensure we maximize the benefits of every session. The e-mail alerts when Steve comments or changes a session really helps me plan my day according to what I need to achieve as an athlete, employee & Father
I want to say I liked your training schedule and although I didn’t have to consult you much, it is a good feeling you have a backup. Also your emails with advises and your data which you can consult is good.
I used a combination Coach Steve's Beginner 22 week and 46-week plan in my attempt at the first full distance triathlon. I followed the plan 90% of the time and made sure those long ones on the weekend were completed. I took the recovery weeks in the plan seriously. Even if i felt great, i avoided the temptation to go out for a short run or bike. On race day, I am happy to report, i completed the race with a lot of energy to spare. Thank you Coach Steve!
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I bought my first training plan. I didn’t even really believe Coach Steve would actually email me promptly and answer my concerns. But, I needed a plan and his fit me. Not only did his plan lead to me finishing 21 minutes under goal time, but he always was there to answer any question I had. I was so thrilled with his plan that I have purchased one of his HALF DISTANCE plans and have great confidence it will again lead me to success.
Anyone looking to dip their toe into the world of triathlon and want a coach or a training plan look no further than Steve Moody. As someone on the wrong side of their mid forties and somewhat daunted by the thought of doing a full FULL DISTANCE I contacted Steve and I’m so glad I did. Steve was supportive, generous with his time ,very knowledgeable and always eager to help.In addition he regularly provides you with helpful hints to keep you motivated and on track with your training. Brilliant Coach
