After 4 attempts I finally broke my goal time for a marathon and QUALIFIED for Boston! All down to your plan … so delighted – thank you Coach Steve
Hi Coach Steve, first I am super happy with your training plan. It really helped me to be prepared for an FULL DISTANCE.
Was nervous training for my first tri – but emailed Coach with some questions and soon was on his beginner sprint plan – it was much less confusing then – I followed the instructions and get more and more confident as I did – and before I knew it 12 weeks later I was a triathlete! Thanks CS
I purchased a plan on TrainingPeaks from Steve for my first FULL DISTANCE race coming up later this year and so far am very impressed with its structure, variety, and detail.
Steve has also been very quick to respond to any queries or questions I have.
I will definitely be recommending him to friends looking for good quality, structured coaching
I can’t say enough about how great Coach Steve’s PB Hit squad is! I had been training on my own using his HALF DISTANCE and OLY plans for 2 yrs prior to joining the squad and I wish I had joined earlier because
1 I gained a lot of better insight into how proper testing really impacts training.
2 I didn’t realize how much I was adjusting the plan & hurting my training when on my own
3 The topics covered in the zooms were insightful and Q&A helped me talk through scenarios that worried me
Joined the IM HALF DISTANCE programme in May 23 for my first ever IM Goa HALF DISTANCE. The programme helped me so much and enhanced my stamina and strength for all three disciplines nospecially Bike part. Finished the event with full of energy and smile on face. Now I’ll go for training for full distance and join the 140.6 plan. Thank you Coach Steve for ultimate programme.
Great plan! Gives you also excellent base fitness to participate half marathons and sub 5 hr cycling events.
Finishing up on your Inter IM Base plan and feeling great – FTP up, CSS down and avg LTHR for the run down!
Onto the full 36 week plan for Cork now!
I just wanted to let you know (I’m sorry it’s 7 weeks post-FULL DISTANCE) that I finished!!! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you answering my questions and for the training program that leads me to success and making me an FULL DISTANCE!
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
As a beginner to both TrainingPeaks and using a coach, I was thoroughly impressed with how simple and (so far) effective Coach Steve’s plan is. I’m quite hot on hitting the right sessions at the right intensity to be able to be the best athlete I can come race day and Coach Steve’s method has allowed me to be rested for the hard sessions and spent enough after to enable strong benefits through recovery. Steve has also been very helpful with answering any questions/suspicions I may have in using my data, planning for the race, and choosing the right plan. I’m currently about halfway through my race plan, and already itching to get going!
I’m entering week 20 of your ADVANCED FULL DISTANCE 32 week (50yrs+, HR-based) program. Really enjoying the plan so far, making great progress, and—knock on wood—remain injury-free.
