The plan you recommended worked great for me. Especially being a noob! I will definitely be looking at another plan, thinking of upping my game to a 70.3!!
My triathlon was last weekend and I came in 3rd in my group, master clydesdale.
I participated in the Philadelphia marathon in PA, USA. It was my first marathon and your plan really helped me through it!
This was my 1st time on one of these camps. Overall the camp was excellent, from the comms prior to the camp, whatsapp group messages leading up to and during the weekend, topics covered, planning sessions (including due to weather changes) and the great atmosphere within the group during the camp.
Both coaches were very knowledgeable, approachable and chilled.
I would recommend one of Coach Steve's camps to anyone looking to gain confidence, insight or a kick in the a** prior to their race.
I have done 2 Ironman races and both occasions I have used Ironman training plans from Coach Steve.
His plans are well thought out and are crafted to fit into the hectic schedule of family life while at the same time getting you fit and ready to take on the race. I found Coach Steve very obliging and helpful whenever I had questions or just needed a little encouragement.
The biggest compliment I can pay is that I’ll be back to him when planning another Ironman.
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
The Training plan you have done out for me is going really well. Pushing me harder than I have ever gone but my fitness is flying up. Thank you very much.
Bring on the bling!! Huge thanks to Steve and Smartendurancesolutions – your plans and insight have not only kept me injury free this winter but built an aerobic base which has seen me set 3 5k pb (Winning our club handicap competition) and also complete a marathon without feeling like death at the end!! Next up – Ironman Italy!!
Coach Steve is phenomenal in providing efficient, detailed, and flexible training plans tailored to your goals. He is very responsive via email and is willing to help with any issue that you bring to his attention. I highly recommend!”
Wow Coach Steve— I really admire how you go above and beyond to help us out.
I just completed my first Ironman after buying your training program. I didn’t really hit most of the training on the days but hit what I could week to week. Had a few mechanical issues on the 140.6 so easily could have gone faster but with my minimal training I’m pretty happy with the results and still have lots of room to improve.
Even with a bad photo you can probably see that I was pretty relaxed finishing my very first Ironman distance in a pretty decent time. While I was running people couldn’t believe how little I was sweating! Well that’s all down to the excellent training plan I followed to the letter ( Well as much as I could) from our very own Coach Steve. Thanks again Coach!
Having struggled over the last couple of years with injuries, health issues and the big 6 0 fast approaching I was close to retiring from any type of training. Then I came across Steve via Social Media and after a few E Mail conversations his enthusiasm and encouragement relighted the tri passion in me. Currently 13 weeks into a 70.3 50+ plan which is easy to follow and understand and with Steve's quick responses to any E Mail queries is as good as having a 121 coach.
