Your training plan help keep me focussed, made me a fitter and more knowledgeable athlete. I’m looking for my next event now (maybe another middle distance or Olympic) but I will be back to buy a full distance programme later in the year!

Just a few weeks out from my first HALF DISTANCE. Coach Steve has helped me keep motivated and as best prepared anyone could ask for. Great tips , advice all the way through.

Definitely going on another plan under Steve’s guidance.

Knocked out my first HALF DISTANCE this morning. Came in a little over 10 minutes under my goal of 5:30. Next to the training plan, Coach Steve’s webinar on nutrition and fueling was the most helpful tool for me. Couldn’t have had a better day thanks to all the tools and info available.

I owe you a big deal of gratitude. Dont know how you do it, but the way you planned your program made me, I feel, peak at the perfect time. Likewise, I am pleasantly surprised that your plan catered for hiccups that life throws at us.

Thank you very much for your plan. My experience was incredible, and I believe there is room for improvement in the upcoming half triathlons next year. Let’s keep in touch.

I recently completed my first HALF DISTANCE FULL DISTANCE race, and I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Coach Steve Moody and his team at Smart Endurance Solutions. Their Beginner HALF DISTANCE triathlon training plan has transformed me from someone who struggled to run 10km two years ago into a confident & capable triathlete. I couldn't be happier with the results and the support I received throughout the entire process. The training plan offered by Coach Steve is exceptionally well-structured and value for money!

Had an epic weekend completing my 1st ever HALF DISTANCE and smashing my goal of 6 hours with a 5:43 finish

The plan worked a treat – thank you so much for it and answering all my questions!

Loving the plan, started the 32 week beginner HALF DISTANCE 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

A great plan for an absolute beginner, got me over the line. I had never done a triathlon before and went from zero to HALF DISTANCE 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!
