Very impressed with the level of detail and guidance in each workout, easy to get to grips with bits of TP functionality is didn’t know were there, enjoying the work so far
I did your Olympic 8 week training plan before (which was 8 weeks after my first marathon) and loved it! That is why I bought a second one 🤗
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for your training plan and advices.
I completed IM Barcelona on 3 October. I’m sure you’ve heard that the swim was cut short which was a pity. However, it was the toughest swim I have ever done. The bike proved harder than expected because of a head wind. I had been hoping for a 6 hour bike but did it in 6.30. The run went as well as I could have expected as I knocked about 20 minutes or so off my previous time.
Hi Steve , followed the plan that purchased from you to train for yesterday’s Hamburg FULL DISTANCE , this was my first FULL DISTANCE and my first triathlon. Really enjoyed the plan , thought was easy to follow and to be fair you were very good at responding whenever I had any questions. The race went really well from a fitness prospective, the plan obviously had the right balance and finished the race strong with a 3,25 marathon.
Great thanks to Steve for immersing myself in successfully-finished triathletes.
For example in the Russian market is dominated by plans from Nonames. Prices bite, and the plans are created according to standard selling templates, without confirmation of the coaches ‘ expertise. There are a lot of such offers on training peaks. On the contrary, Steve’s plans show a huge experience as a coach and athlete. The plans themselves are simple, transparent, and perfectly structured. Before choosing, I wrote to the coach, he warned me about the difficulties, explained the requirements for me as an athlete. He checked my plans for adequacy and then gave me all the necessary recommendations. This only confirmed my desire to follow his plan.
When I got sick during training, the coach gave instructions on how to adjust the training to compensate for the loss of form.
For the little correspondence that we had during the training, Steve has shown himself to be a very nice person, and training athletes for him is more than just earnings. He plans to invest in themselves and their knowledge.“
What a weekend.
Thanks very much for all your help and support over the last year.
Crossing the finish line and hearing those words “David Hill you are an FULL DISTANCE” made all the time and commitment worthwhile.
Your plan really assisted me in my training. I especially enjoyed the fact that the workouts loaded to my Garmin watch and then told me what Zone to be in. The drag-and-drop calendar was great helping to move sessions around.
My fitness improved dramatically, and I lost 26lbs in weight which was an achievement in itself!
I feel a bit cheated (with cancelled swim) as I cant really say I have done a HALF DISTANCE but enjoyed the training and would definitely recommend
The combination of this training program and access to coach Steve is invaluable.
The first time I trained for an FULL DISTANCE HALF DISTANCE I just found a workout on the internet. It worked, but that’s it.
Being able to bounce questions off of Steve throughout the training has been a major confidence boost for me. I feel like I’m actually doing things the right way now! And it’s more fun to have a friend encouraging you along the way!!
Since we teamed up your coaching and advice has made a major difference & improvement to my training. Your analysis has highlighted instances where I was overtraining, brought a focus and rationale to training in the correct HR zones which has developed my endurance. Your coaching has also introduced proper periodization to my training. Crucially having you coaching me has taken away the usual second guessing that goes with setting one’s own training schedule. On the journey I have found that you listened well to my particular circumstances and been flexible and adaptive to suit my busy worklife. TrainingPeaks played a key role here also allowing me to lay out my work commitments in advance and you could tailor the training load and schedule to fit.
So thank you very much for the 2016 season and I look forward to working together again in 2017
Thank you coach Steve for the programme and the support when needed for me to complete FULL DISTANCE bolton. If I ever do another triathlon I will 100% be speaking to Steve again!! Thanks coach
I'm loving the plan so far!!!
15 months without racing but I can honestly say that Coach Steve's plans keep me motivated day in day out. Recently we discussed and changed my training regime from IM to Olympic distance training. Yep, due to this bad worldwide situation my IM dream is on hold for the time being. I m honestly more confident as an athlete thanks to Steve's base training and yeah I m so ready and pumped to race!
