Have been training for a number of years under coach Steve and I have to say he is brilliant and very flexible with training sessions. Any questions are answered /cleared up very quickly. Sessions will be planned to your abilities & availability.
Highly recommend coach Steve 👍
I completed the Dublin Marathon based off your training plan from June.
My first marathon ( done a couple of halves before) and first time trying running in HR zones rather than just run as fast as you can.
Delighted with my result. Thanks
I set out looking to do a full distance FULL DISTANCE event with no previous experience of triathlon and no idea what a training plan would look like. I had no idea where to start so I got the beginner time crunched FULL DISTANCE plan, I have a part time job while studying engineering at university so my time was slim. I wasn’t racing for a time I was racing to get to the finish and this plan fit my schedule amazingly and I made it to the line ! I now have the bug for triathlon and purchased my second plan
Just finished your 12-week beginner Olympic plan and had an awesome day out – my swim was way better than expected, the bike had me passing lots of people and I finished the run a little slower than I hoped but my overall time was WAY faster than my target 3 hours (2:48!) – thank you so much!
Should I go straight onto an intermediate plan now? I want to race again soon
I just finished your BEGINNER Olympic 12-week training plan and finished my first triathlon yesterday (had a flat tyre though so had to walk to T2) but felt really strong and still finished my run with a good tempo. Your training plan definitely helped me achieve that!
Switched over to a smartensurdance plan for my next upcoming IM and so far it has been night and day with other plans. Two biggest benefits so far are firstly the zone and output effort variations are keeping me fresh and continuously improving my metrics while allowing recovery at precise times, and secondly it has taken all of the guess work out of my mind as the analysis provided in the scheduled trainings are granular in design yet simple to follow and my gains very traceable.
Followed the HALF DISTANCE training programme from Coach Steve on training peaks prior to competing in Tri X, advertised as the world’s toughest half iron. This was my first triathlon and I couldn’t of done it without the excellent training advice. Going into the race the fittest I have been in a very long time, taking 6th in my age group and 21st overall. Thanks Coach Steve, on to the next one!
Hello Coach Steve,
I am delighted to inform that I crossed the HALF DISTANCE Weymouth finish line in my personal best of 7 hrs 21 mins and 11 seconds.
I am really happy with the result, your training plan helped. All in all, a very satisfying result. And also a demonstration that I can push more and look to bring that time to sub 7.
I worked with Steve to train for my first full-distance FULL DISTANCE. I got tailored specific feedback on every session, which helped me ramp up my training volume, avoid injury and build fitness. I went into the race feeling confident about my plan, all three disciplines and the race itself. Steve’s coaching took the guesswork and stress of out competing in an FULL DISTANCE, and I plan to work with him again. Highly recommended!
Smart Endurance Solutions Made me an FULL DISTANCE 2018!!!
Didn’t have to think about a thing! Followed the plan and the rest follows! QED
As a newbie to Triathlon, Steve's training camp was an invaluable experience. His thoughtful guidance and tips throughout the camp gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed for race day.
I couldn't recommend Smart Endurance Solutions more highly. I am currently undertaking their over 50's HR based intermediate full-distance training plan after having completed their base building/maintenance plan earlier in the year. I have found both plans to be enjoyable , rewarding and have seen fantastic results. Progress has been steady and each stage has fitted my age and fitness profile perfectly. I have found communication and advice extremely helpful.
