I used your 40 week Beginner FULL DISTANCE Program as part of my training for FULL DISTANCE California because it fitted my personal time and commitment goals..
I met every one of my goals. My goals were to finish, to enjoy the experience, and to come out of it injury free. I finished in 15 hours and 3 minutes…exactly where I wanted to be.
FULL DISTANCE was a bucket list item for me, and you helped me check that box! If I need another program for any of my other goals, I will be coming back to you!
Thank you again,
Thank you for helping me not only refind my training Mojo during all the COVID cancellations but also emerge from it a stronger biker than before…. your base sessions kept me motivated and challenged! Now onto IM Bolton in 2022!
Really enjoyed your half marathon plan so I’ve bought your 20-week full marathon plan for Dublin – going to be great!
The combination of this training program and access to coach Steve is invaluable.
The first time I trained for an FULL DISTANCE HALF DISTANCE I just found a workout on the internet. It worked, but that’s it.
Being able to bounce questions off of Steve throughout the training has been a major confidence boost for me. I feel like I’m actually doing things the right way now! And it’s more fun to have a friend encouraging you along the way!!
Thanks for the FULL DISTANCE training plan Coach Steve.
Just finished FULL DISTANCE Austria with a new personal best. Felt really good during the race and only the hot temperatures of ~35 degrees Celsius stoped me from getting an even better finishing time. The plan was great, with lots of long rides and runs that proved their worth during the race. Very important: i don't have any next day pain after the race (I can even do squats) so the recovery went so well. Highly recommend your plan to anyone. Thanks
As someone who needs structure to my training I found working with Steve invaluable. Constant feedback helped keep me focused and when I was unfortunate to pick up an injury we worked together to ensure training was back on track.
After initially signing up for a practical HALF DISTANCE plan, I then moved to his coaching. The tailored approach with constant feedback makes the whole process and delivers everything I want from training. You can see the improvements with each block but most importantly training is enjoyable. Coach Steve gets the balance between tough sessions and recovery just right so that training is consistent. Steve’s knowledge on all aspects of each discipline would make me highly recommend his plans & coaching.
I completed the full-distance last Sunday, August 13. My time was 14:18.16.
Thank you for helping me accomplish this goal of mine. Also, through training for this, I learned how much I love cycling and I hope to participate in some cycling races in the near future.
P.S. I really enjoy your youtube videos
I would like to say thank you again for your support. I finished my #7 FULL DISTANCE in personal best 10:05h. The bike course was 5km longer and the transition area was super long. So I believe i would have been sub 10 🙂 I’m very happy with my performance/results.
Steve is a great coach, extremely responsive and sets a plan that will work for you! I seen my fitness increase way more during his plan than when I was creating my own. Would highly recommend!
Training with Coach Steve is fantastic. He gives clear information and cuts through the jargon (vital for a first timer like myself). He’s very responsive, supportive and genuinely interested in how to help achieve goals and make progress!
Hi Steve , followed the plan that purchased from you to train for yesterday’s Hamburg FULL DISTANCE , this was my first FULL DISTANCE and my first triathlon. Really enjoyed the plan , thought was easy to follow and to be fair you were very good at responding whenever I had any questions. The race went really well from a fitness prospective, the plan obviously had the right balance and finished the race strong with a 3,25 marathon.
