I thoroughly enjoyed the IM plan you developed for 50+ Athletes. I made it through the entire program with zero injuries. This combined with the use of Fulgaz, really prepared me well for IM Tulsa.
Extremely happy with a 14:34:01 for my first IM finish!!! From powerlifting 10 years ago to FULL DISTANCE today!😊
Can’t thank you enough!
Using Coach Moody’s 40-week intermediate FULL DISTANCE plan, my goals were to: 1) Finish; 2) Not permanently injure myself or die; 3) to not be last; and to hopefully beat 14 hours. All goals achieved. With Coach’s plan, I was able to accomplish something I never thought I could achieve. Total time 13:28
Hello 🙂 I’m halfway through your Olympic distance training plan and decided to celebrate by taking part in a duathlon this past Sunday 🙂 it was a great race & I can’t wait to see how fast I can go on race day in a couple of weeks!
Absolutely love your plan!
Thanks so much 🙂
P.s. Also got to take this shiny thing home with me for AG podium – see picture
After 2 years of Covid cancellations , I finally made it to the start line of the 2022 Port Macquarie HALF DISTANCE FULL DISTANCE. It was hard to stay motivated through Covid lockdowns and weeks of rain, but Steve's program kept me focused and gave me a realistic training load and intensity. I realised I'd been overtraining, and Steve's program taught me the value of low heart rate sessions. I was impressed with Steve's quick response to emails and his reassuring and helpful advice. Thanks Steve!
Coach Steve & I have been working together for a number of years, Steve has been invaluable in my ability to train & complete races. Having a young family, busy job & limited free time, his structured yet flexible approach allows me to still get training in. Accompanying S&C programs really help you training smart as well as hard. The best thing working with Steve is having a rational voice to keep you honest. He will have that difficult conversations with you, this helps me set realistic goals
Thanks very much for the plan – I’m doing the BEGINNER Time crunched FULL DISTANCE 36 week plan – I’m really enjoying doing it and looking forward to Septembers iron!
Steve’s plan was really great. I felt very well-prepared and ready my first HALF DISTANCE. I remember my first Olympic – done with some self-training/a tri club, no real “plan” per se – being anxious about the race. After using this training plan, I knew I could complete the race before I stepped foot on the course – it almost felt easy! Looking forward to using Steve’s plans again for my first FULL DISTANCE!
Coach Steve’s training package helped me to perform better than I ever thought possible in the 2017 West Australian HALF DISTANCE full-distance. I went from being a middle of the pack finisher to finishing in the top 20% in my age group by following his intermediate 12 week plan on Training Peaks. I actually enjoyed the whole training period and went into the event feeling confident and strong. The plan was easy to follow with full detailed sets and is incredible value for money. The swim sets are particularly great with enough variety to keep it interesting. I’ve come back for another training program this year and Steve has been awesome answering my emails, almost in real time conversation. Highly recommended!
I Found Steves Intermediate Olympic training plan a gamechanger. The blended layout of lower and higher intensity workouts was perfect! His online support was also great, helping me out a few times. I will be using Steve again in 2024 for an FULL DISTANCE HALF DISTANCE plan.
Keep up the great work.
I used Smartendurancesolutions for my 1st full FULL DISTANCE this year, I can’t recommend Smartendurancesolutions enough, Steven took me from very low levels of fitness to completing an FULL DISTANCE in a time I had only dreamed of. There is great feedback on all sessions. It is easy to see all sessions have a purpose and tie into the overall plan. Heart-rate controlled sessions, which make it all easier on race day to stay on target in zone and in control. The added advantage of having a coach who is very experienced and accomplished long distance racer, is great for bringing a calming effect, for those times of pre-race panic
I used your plan for Cork last year and was so happy with it.
I sent your plan on to two friends in Tralee so they signed up also
With this time I became 4th in my AG (36 woman) AND I won a slot for the IMHALF DISTANCE WC in St. George End of October! What a great success
Thanks again for your guidance and your training plan.
