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
May weekend in Youghal. Great weekend, knowledgeable coaches. Good group splits. Good craic
After completing my HALF DISTANCE in Barcelona at 5:53, I joined the PB Hit squad for improved training. Coach Steve and Coach Mark’s meticulous sessions and calls transformed my performance. With their guidance, I’ve achieved numerous PB’s since then. The PB Hit squad is the ultimate training experience for progress. I am sure that by joining the PB hit squad it has transformed my training.
I’m really enjoying your plan, exactly what I needed. From my previous HALF DISTANCEs, I feel that a lack of volume in training was my downfall. I was just making it up as I went along so this is a good change.”
Coach Steve is the BEST! He is very accessible and accommodating! He defnitely knows triathlon. I am thrilled with my fitness so far and can't wait to cross that finish line!
Steve’s training plans are really well tailored by event, duration, ability and age-group. Following his plan has made a step change to my training. Even though there has been no formal racing of late, I have seen continuous improvements in training ‘test sessions’ and virtual races. It has also been reassuring to have email access to Steve when the questions / doubts / second-guessing can creep in.
Thank you Steve.
Many thanks for your plan and support in answering my questions, I really appreciate the time you took to support me.
Regards from Australia,
Sorry for delay in posting but just wanted to say a few weeks back I smashed my PB with your intermediate marathon plan – found the race pace sessions had me so dialled in for execution on the day – so will be looking for a new plan for Boston! Thanks Coach Steve
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 first contacted Steve in 2019 for some coaching and remember phoning him for an initial chat to scope out my options. He insisted that he should come around in person, for a kick start meeting. I was immediately impressed with his enthusiasm and passion for what he does. Since then, I've managed to complete my first full full-distance last year and am currently following one of Steve's intermediate IM programs to prepare for Cork IM. I would have no problem recommending him anyone.
Huge thank you to Coach Steve for my fully customised HALF DISTANCE & 140.6 plan combo.
I’ve tried a few different plans in the past & Steve is most def a coach who listens & will be sure to identify what your base, strengths and weaknesses are to come up with a solution that works best for you. Steve is open to adjust the plan & offers advice when life gets in the way. A lot to be said for a SMart plan that works around your life & the goals you’ve set for yourself no matter how challenging they are.
I joined the program with some sort of hesitation from deviating from my current functional program I follow.
But since joining the SES program my fitness has increased like never before! My body has reacted really well and I can’t wait to see the results on race day.
Steve has been great and made the program super clear and accessible through the online platform.
5 stars from me
