I’ve found the marathon plan really effective so looking forward to getting started on your IM plan in a few weeks.
Yesterday I raced in the Nepean Triathlon in Sydney. This race is Australia's oldest triathlon, celebrating its 40th anniversary.
I had a good race, coming 3rd in AG with a course PB!
I’ve bought/used yr plan for a HALF DISTANCE distance last year and really liked it!
Now would love one for this shorter distance
Have been using your intermediate 24 week marathon plan and ever since I have embraced your zone based system of training – I am already seeing benefits – my avg HR is down 5 beats on my long runs and I am still able to run 8 min miles really comfortably – excited to see how much more I can improve – I will let you know!!!
Great coach Steve!! I’m following your plan for the FULL DISTANCE and I’m improving very well!! Very fast in email reply with his advice and assistance!! Highly recommended
Just completed the HALF DISTANCE and FULL DISTANCE Cork training weekend. An excellent course with good information on how an full-distance event works, what to expect on the day and nutritional info. Also guided swim plus guided cycle of the full 90km route and run route. Would definitely recommend for any full-distance newbies or anyone wishing a race reckkie
I just wanted to let you know my training has been going great so far and I’m shocked at what I’m able to accomplish with this training plan
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
So Coach, the season is now done for me! I completed Outlaw X HALF DISTANCE on Sunday in a PB time of 5:13. My previous like for like was 5:36 in June 2019. So 2 years older and 23 minutes faster! Happy with that.
One of the best decisions I've made in my short triathlon career to date was having Steven as my coach. I went from being barely able to run 5km without stopping multiple times to consistently placing top of my age group and winning the Sprint Age Group National Championships. I could not recommend Steven more highly to anyone who is looking for a great Triathlon coach!!!!
Steve organised a fantastic weekend, steve along with Mark covered the swim, bike and run courses, advice on transitions, nutrition, fuelling on the go. Plus advice on training on lead up to the event. Couldn't ask for more for a triathlete to newbie FULL DISTANCE competitor. Have the confidence compete on race day, bring it on!
Thanks Coach Steve for the great plan. I completed my 1st Marathon the United States Coast Guard Marathon as a veteran this was very special to me to complete. After shopping an overwhelming amount of beginner marathon plans on TrainingPeaks your plan “Beginners Marathon for Off Season Triathletes” was the perfect fit for me. My run base was pretty good but I have a hard time recovering from tons of running. This is what made this plan perfect for me was adding in the swim and bike between runs
