I am following the Advanced FULL DISTANCE Program for my next race, and I am extremely happy with the results. The detailed training plan has helped me to not only improve my fitness, but also my confidence. Steve's timely answers to my few questions have been always very clear to understand. His advice has been key for me to develop my skills and enhance my knowledge. I feel fully prepared for my next FULL DISTANCE and I would recommend this program to any advanced athlete.
Many thanks for your plan and support in answering my questions, I really appreciate the time you took to support me.
Regards from Australia,
Bring on the bling!! Huge thanks to Steve and Smartendurancesolutions – your plans and insight have not only kept me injury free this winter but built an aerobic base which has seen me set 3 5k pb (Winning our club handicap competition) and also complete a marathon without feeling like death at the end!! Next up – FULL DISTANCE Italy!!
Great start to my season as nailed a 6 min PB on the first of my planned duathlons – thank you CS – loving the structure and the helpful videos!
I really enjoyed your beginner 36 week full IM plan for my prep for IM Florida this past weekend.
With all kind wishes and support of crossed another milestone on 8th Oct 23. Completed my first FULL DISTANCE Goa HALF DISTANCE in 7:14:23 hrs. The weather was so brutal that out of 787 starters, only 517 crossed the finish line i.e. 34% DNF. Thanks a lot, Steven sir, on the hardest climb on the bike and 36’c run your words were in my mind – Believe your Training. Next target FULL DISTANCE Kazak.
HALF DISTANCE done! And an age group podium to boot (which got bumped up to 2nd in the official results!!!)
The balance of training that allows me to run that fast (for me) off the bike seems like a mystic art!!
Another HALF DISTANCE race done and would not have been able to finish without the support and guidance of Coach Steve (CS).
I had an injury at the beginning of the year and wasn’t able to run for two months. CS help to tailor my plan to allow for the reduction in running which allowed me to focus on my bike and swim. Before the race I felt in the best running condition of the last 18 months.
Cairns of course made it difficult but I learnt so much.
CS will be there to help me to FULL DISTANCE 2022.
Well I'm the guy a coach doesn't want or need .
Can't get my shit together can't get motivated or maybe I should say can't get motivated without a kick in the arse from coach Moody who never gives up on me.
Coach Moody adjusts and readjusts my programme to where my head is at while all the time giving me a reason to stay with it when I want to just Jack it all in .
I would most certainly be in a worse head space without coach sticking it out with me .
Thanks coach this time I'll get it done
Used and loved Coach Steve’s HALF DISTANCE plan – as not only got me fit and strong but got me that elusive PB … not bad for a guy nearly hitting 50! Age is just a number! Thanks CS
Really impressed with the training so far. I bought my HALF DISTANCE Intermediate plan for my upcoming HALF DISTANCE (NC) and I have to say, I’m impressed.
In 14 weeks I have raised my FTP from 198 to 243, I have improved my Time Trail Swimming from 2:10 to 1:42 and all because I have followed as close as possible (with life commitments) the plan from Coach Steve.
He does know what he is talking, he is super approachable and you can ask questions when in doubt, ask for guidance. He is great!
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!
