Bring on the bling!! Huge thanks to Steve and Smartendurancesolutions – your plans and insight have not only kept me injury free this winter but built an aerobic base which has seen me set 3 5k pb (Winning our club handicap competition) and also complete a marathon without feeling like death at the end!! Next up – FULL DISTANCE Italy!!
Thanks for your help in identifying a plan to prepare for FULL DISTANCE Cork, found it brilliant and really useful to give me the structure I needed.
Looking forward to race day
Grabbed a nice age group win in my first tri of the season yesterday – helped of course by your training plan! 🙂
Really impressed with the training so far. I bought my HALF DISTANCE Intermediate plan for my upcoming HALF DISTANCE (NC) and I have to say, I’m impressed.
In 14 weeks I have raised my FTP from 198 to 243, I have improved my Time Trail Swimming from 2:10 to 1:42 and all because I have followed as close as possible (with life commitments) the plan from Coach Steve.
He does know what he is talking, he is super approachable and you can ask questions when in doubt, ask for guidance. He is great!
I found Coach Steve’s training programme very useful and highly effective to reach and go further than what my goals were. The programme is easy to follow and having the the ability to converse with Steve on matters to do with training is a huge benefit. Can highly recommend Steve and his expertise!
Coach Steve does an incredible job of dialed in training to your specific needs. I am pleased with the program which has enabled me to prepare for my first HALF DISTANCE. The knowledge that Coach Steve shared has made this process a great experience along with positive motivation/confidence building. I highly recommend this to anyone considering a seamless training program which provides the daily work out up to race day!!
Great plan, found it much easier to stick to than some others i’ve tried. Coach Steve explains things very well with excellent support.
Your plan really assisted me in my training. I especially enjoyed the fact that the workouts loaded to my Garmin watch and then told me what Zone to be in. The drag-and-drop calendar was great helping to move sessions around.
My fitness improved dramatically, and I lost 26lbs in weight which was an achievement in itself!
I feel a bit cheated (with cancelled swim) as I cant really say I have done a HALF DISTANCE but enjoyed the training and would definitely recommend
Completed the FULL DISTANCE training camp last weekend in Youghal with Steve and would highly recommend! Great info and course specific knowledge learned during the camp. If thinking of doing an FULL DISTANCE would recommend Steve’s training camp. Thanks again see you in August! Dave
I thought I would share my feedback.
The plan was great, the level of detail was perfect and all the additional info is a big help.
I appreciate the help, I’m looking at what one next abroad and I’ll be back for more. The plan gave me confidence so I’ll let you know once I book.
I am following your intermediate full-distance 40 week plan and I love it
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
