Just wanted to say thanks for your advanced Oly training program I enjoyed it and used it for my race this weekend (1500 m lake / 28 mi bike / 10 K run). Fun getting back into it, even if a little more effort beating the “young bucks” now that I am 50 years young/old!
[Overall placing 5th of 175/AG placing 1st 50-54]
Used and loved Coach Steve’s 70.3 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
Happy new week! I wanted to share I took part in my first Olympic triathlon last week and got 3rd place in my age group. More importantly, is that I felt strong and comfortable during the event which was my goal! The placing was an added bonus
Great help, and very quick responses to specific problems and issues. Really good service, that I would highly recommend!
Hello 🙂 I’m halfway through your Olympic distance training plan and decided to celebrate by taking part in a duathlon this past Sunday 🙂 it was a great race & I can’t wait to see how fast I can go on race day in a couple of weeks!
Absolutely love your plan!
Thanks so much 🙂
P.s. Also got to take this shiny thing home with me for AG podium – see picture
Thanks to Cairnscrocstriclub for another amazing duathlon event this morning. I was carrying a niggling injury which affected my run times but super stoked to have shaved 10 mins from my bike time last year. Massive thanks to Coach Steve for the IRONMAN training plan which I am seeing tangible results from
Very attentive and interested in my progress while being realistic about adjustments needed around life happening – provided good structure and focus then backed it up with accountability
Steve is a great coach and a great guy. I was coached for my first full distance race with him in Barcelona. A real coach that cares for his athletes. When I do another full distance race Steve will be my first port of call.
Great plan so far btw!
Completed the Ironman training camp last weekend in Youghal with Steve and would highly recommend! Great info and course specific knowledge learned during the camp. If thinking of doing an Ironman would recommend Steve’s training camp. Thanks again see you in August! Dave
Thanks again for your responses, its refreshing to speak to a coach who seems to care about what the athlete is purchasing
I can’t say enough about Coach Steve and his training plans!
I’m only 5 weeks in to my 32 week beginner Ironman training plan and
have already seen huge improvements in my fitness…especially my
running! At the start, 4 km seemed like a hurdle but now I’m easily
running 7-12 km 3+ times a week. It took me months to reach those kind
of distances when I was training for a half several years back.
On top of the great plans, Coach Steve has been incredibly accessible
and has helped to move around my workouts to work with my crazy
schedule and my fitness level…it’s been super helpful knowing that
there’s someone there to help and build a bit flexibility into the
program, rather than just skipping workouts all together.
I’m really just getting started and already have a ton of confidence
in my ability to make it across the finish line. I would highly
recommend SMart Endurance Solutions and Coach Steve
