Hi Coach Steve,
I did the marathon in Paris and I did a 22’ pb 😊
Thanks for putting together this plan and all the support you have given.
Great plan so far btw!
I can’t say enough about how great Coach Steve’s PB Hit squad is! I had been training on my own using his HALF DISTANCE and OLY plans for 2 yrs prior to joining the squad and I wish I had joined earlier because
1 I gained a lot of better insight into how proper testing really impacts training.
2 I didn’t realize how much I was adjusting the plan & hurting my training when on my own
3 The topics covered in the zooms were insightful and Q&A helped me talk through scenarios that worried me
When you finish your first FULL DISTANCE running and energized like this, I call it a success! I reached out to Coach 5 months ago asking whether I can pull it off after a 10 month hiatus from training and very little time available. Guess what, he had already a plan for this! It was deeply meaningful to me to finish an IM and a great feeling to do it not only with no pain whatsoever, but.
Thanks Coach Steve for all the support over the last two years, from my first sprint to this!
This plan is exactly what I needed! I started from nothing at age 57 and I finished a HALF DISTANCE 6 months later in 6.5 hours. I am so proud of myself. Coach Steve helped through all along the way by responding to every little email question I had. When I came to the start line I felt so well prepared thanks to Coach Steve’s training plan!
In the past 2 weeks I have set PBs for Watts for 30 and 60 min on the bike, I did my fastest ever 30km on the bike last night (beating my old time by a few minutes, even after running 10km in the stinking hot morning), and I actually feel like a somewhat competent swimmer these days! So overall, I am really happy with the workouts and program in general so THANK YOU!
I’m really enjoying this training plan. It’s my first time using training peaks and the accountability is incredible as well as the benefits of not having to think about a training routine for the week. Plus all the data!!!
Awesome service, with creation of a plan for the Swedish weather, a pile of encouragement and humour to calm my first IM nerves. Kalmar 2019 here I come. Thank coach Steve
Excellent person and professional coach, always available to the needs of athletes, at any time of the day. Well structured and easy to follow workout.
Training to a plan built by someone who knows what they’re talking about has made a huge difference. For me having the structure outlined by Steven was motivating, but more importantly it has improved my enjoyment of racing and without-doubt has improved my times. I have had sprint and olympic PBs already this season and with Dublin HALF DISTANCE on the horizon I am confident of a PB at that distance too.
Honestly I couldn’t recommend these plans enough this is my second plan and I’ve loved it again. Plus my emails are always answered within 10 minutes of sending !
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!
