Following the training plan worked like a charm, no surprises on race day
Loving the plan, started the 32 week beginner 70.3 plan in early Jan with A race coinciding with Cork in August. Been following it to the letter and while I’d be a strong swimmer and cyclist, I’m seeing massive gains in my run having gone from a 1:45 half marathon to running an 18km training run comfortably in z2 at 4:50 average (including 2km warm up and cool down), at the tail end of a 3 week base block! If you’d told me that 6 months ago I’d have laughed at you
Happy new week! I wanted to share I took part in my first Olympic triathlon last week and got 3rd place in my age group. More importantly, is that I felt strong and comfortable during the event which was my goal! The placing was an added bonus
All is great I'm loving the structure and logical process
A great plan for an absolute beginner, got me over the line. I had never done a triathlon before and went from zero to 70.3 with the 28 week beginners plan.
Admittedly as a total beginner the plan can get hectic but it's easy to edit if you need to (e.g. due to illness or injury). I was very appreciative of the email access to Coach Steve because as a beginner I had a hape of questions and all were answered with great help given.
Reusing the plan for 2023. Bought the full IM plan for 2024!
I'm loving the plan so far!!!
I appreciate your program. I felt like your training worked really well for me as well as how you set things up in Training Peaks, it was great to have trust in the HR zones and see the progression. The last Triathlon I did was in 2012, California 70.3 which I finished in 5:40. A decade later, I finished Florida 70.3 in 5:32, a new PR!
I’m so glad I found your plan to help me accomplish my goal of completing my first triathlon this year. With no prior triathlon experience, I signed up for the Timberman 70.3 which was held on 9/18/22. I signed up for this race in late 2021. In January, I purchased this plan – INTERMEDIATE 70.3 32 week plan includes email access to Coach, reusable, HR based and got started in February. I completed my 70.3 in 6 hours, 11 minutes and am very pleased with this
I completed Ironman 70.3 Muncie this past weekend. It was a big success (for me) my first completion under my belt.
I loved your plan [INTERMEDIATE 70.3 24 week plan (50yrs+)] ,I bought last spring so much now I am looking for a winter base training plan!
I’m actually wrapping up one of your plans right now for a half iron in Waco on Oct 16th. Really enjoy using your plans as they truly help me finish strong and give me great confidence going into race day
Finished with a 6:09 and change. I was really happy with it overall.
Appreciate all your help along the way!
