I have your full-distance plan (24 weeks) and I love it, a big fan!
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
After self-coaching for a few years, I decided to put some purpose and organization into my FULL DISTANCE training, signed up with a plan from Steve, and am very impressed with the layout and attention to detail in the plan. Steve also responds to questions quickly and addresses the issues immediately. I also have a shift pattern work schedule which he helped me figure out.
Highly recommend, if you want to step it up a level!”
Great plan so far btw!
Coach Steve’s HALF DISTANCE training plan not only got me to the finish line on my first HALF DISTANCE FULL DISTANCE event, but managed to prepare me well enough to beat my expected 6 hours by 22 minutes!
Will most definately stick to SMart Endurance for my next event.
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.
May weekend in Youghal. Great weekend, knowledgeable coaches. Good group splits. Good craic
Steve was very knowledgeable and kept things interesting. The program helped me to get a better understanding of my zones for training and I enjoyed being able to get advice on upcoming events.
I felt your coaching skills combined with your knowledge of when to push and when to accept my excuses (!) was such a help to me. Our partnership was key in getting me across the finish line in the race with a PB too…. I definitely did more brick sessions than in previous years and that stood to me on race day
Awesome beginner FULL DISTANCE plan from Steve with great email support where needed. Helped take me to my first FULL DISTANCE in 12.44. I found the plan helped me balance training with family…aswell as possible with this kind of thing anyway! Onto the next one, cheers steve
Just want to say I’m loving the plan and bar this week its really trying in with my work/life balance which is really what I 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.
