This is my first time using a Coach’s training plan, the plan is easy to understand and structured which helps a lot for my novice brain. Really enjoying it so far and quite surprised at how responsive Steve is to queries and resolving any issues. I have a feeling I will be coming back to Steve after my first HALF DISTANCE to work on my next one
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
I started using the beginner FULL DISTANCE program from Steve and found it to be extremely helpful and saw my fitness improve dramatically since then I have moved onto the advanced FULL DISTANCE program from Steve and have managed PB’s in all three disciplines. Steve has always be approachable via email with any questions and responds quickly. I now have 4 programs by Steve across FULL DISTANCE and HALF DISTANCE distances. Thanks a lot Steve for helping me become better and more importantly faster!
Great trial really enjoying getting back to training and this programme is giving me massive motivation to get fully back into training
All is great I'm loving the structure and logical process
This is my 4th year using SMart Endurance ,
The attention to detail in feedback from all sessions is exceptional ,
Always at the end of a phone when advice or direction is needed,
I searched through a number of training programmes on Training Peaks and was delighted I chose Coach Steve and Smart Endurance Solutions.
From a long time absence away from triathlon, I wanted something that would get me up to date without having to think too hard, and that would also adapt to my own development.
So far it has challenged me without being over-faced. The Facebook community and ability to email Coach Steve is a really nice extra for such a good value package.
Thanks for your plan/support, today I managed to keep a pace of 4:50 throughout the whole 1/2 marathon achieving a PB on this route.
Thank you coach Steve for the programme and the support when needed for me to complete FULL DISTANCE bolton. If I ever do another triathlon I will 100% be speaking to Steve again!! Thanks coach
I want to say I liked your training schedule and although I didn’t have to consult you much, it is a good feeling you have a backup. Also your emails with advises and your data which you can consult is good.
Steve is an experienced coach. He has a thorough understanding of training peaks and how to interpret the data so if you are using TP then Steve can help you to leverage the information to provide more insights. I used Steve's plan for my 1st HALF DISTANCE and finished it injury free in the time as trained and planned.
I've found SMART ENDURANCE SOLUTIONS HALF DISTANCE plans to work really well for me. I've seen my results improve while following his plans. It takes the "thinking / overthinking" out of the training process and I just have to do the sessions and trust in the process. Steve replies quickly to my queries and always has helpful advice when needed. He was able to design a custom plan which was tailored to my strengths and accounted for my club swim sessions, Zwift sessions and solo runs. Thanks!
