51 mins faster than last year!! Going for a beer after a lie down.. Thanks Coach Steve
Just want to give a big thanks to Steve. Completed the Dublin marathon at the weekend with a 4 minute pb that I’ve been trying to beat for the last 4 years. Followed his 4 month marathon focused triathlon plan. Trust the plan and the results will come.
I was looking for a long-term FULL DISTANCE training plan. Only coach Steve offers such a program (48 weeks, shorter ones are also available). Before purchasing the plan I asked him which plan would be better for me (There are advanced, intermediate, and beginner plans). Steve took the time to understand my fitness level and needs, before recommending a plan (intermediate). He was also very responsive and answered all my questions rapidly and in detail: He not only provides you an answer but also explains why he gave that answer, which is very useful. The plan itself is well thought and the workouts are clearly explained which is important to perform them efficiently.
I highly recommend coach Steve. Knowing that you can count on an expert is highly motivating.
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 enjoyed the plan it really suited my work life balance, feeling fitter and stronger.
I used one of Steve's 2 month marathon training plans following IM Cork HALF DISTANCE. The plan also included bike and swim. At no point did I feel like I was overtraining or being pushed over my limit. Steve was quick to respond to any questions I had. Highly recommended.
This program was awesome. After many seasons riddled with injury I learned how to run based on my heart rate and to be ok with running slower while training.
I had to opt out of a HALF DISTANCE due to a back strain and started this plan as redemption. I stayed healthy throughout the plan and even came in 10 min under my goal time. The mixture of swim, bike, run also took wear and tear off of my legs.
Thank you for helping me complete my first marathon in 12 years.
Great instructions by coach Steve and I’m looking forward to smash my training for this Marathon. The training peak app is very straight forward once you get familiar and with Steve’s advice
Steve’s training plans are really well tailored by event, duration, ability and age-group. Following his plan has made a step change to my training. Even though there has been no formal racing of late, I have seen continuous improvements in training ‘test sessions’ and virtual races. It has also been reassuring to have email access to Steve when the questions / doubts / second-guessing can creep in.
Thank you Steve.
Many thanks for your plan and support in answering my questions, I really appreciate the time you took to support me.
Regards from Australia,
Just finishing up your 8 week triathlon specific S&C plan – in previous seasons I always tended to end up injured when the running volume built up due to weak claves … but this year – before the real intense stuff starts – must admit I am feeling almost bullet proof – thank you Coach S
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.
