Just completed the 70.3 and Ironman Cork training weekend. An excellent course with good information on how an ironman event works, what to expect on the day and nutritional info. Also guided swim plus guided cycle of the full 90km route and run route. Would definitely recommend for any ironman newbies or anyone wishing a race reckkie
Thank you so much for all your support and advice while I have been training. The fact you replied so quickly to all my emails with great advice was a huge factor in me successfully completing my first Ironman. I could definitely have done better on my run but I was delighted with my time and really just the fact I finished! The fact I feel great this week and am only in pain due to losing 2 toe nails shows how well my training worked
Great training plan for me, brought me to the top of my fitness in June 2021 after only 3 months of efficient training following my base training.
Hi Coach Steve
I am in the last few weeks of my prep for Ironman South Africa. 29 March 2020.
I have learned so much from your program. Thank you very much
Awesome plan, really seeing the gains as I go into the build phase of the plan, Steve responds quickly to emails while also providing interesting information along the way, will buy from Steve again 5 stars from me.
I approached Coach Steve from Smartendurancesolutions back in September, as I wanted to have a second opinion on how structured marathon training would work for me – so I bought his advanced marathon plan. From the beginning Coach Steve was very friendly and answered lightning fast all the questions I had- although I’m a decent runner with a pb of 2:51 on the marathon – regardless the question, he was there with a good advice or a joke 😉. Truth is that for those 35 usd paid on the plan you just get more then that – so once this marathon plan is completed, I’ll continue working with Steve on my next goal – sub 10h IM (currently sitting at 10h, with a pb of 10:01 and several other around 10:15). Bottom line – I’m very happy with the choice I made and can’t recommend Smartendurancesolutions enough.
I have your full-distance plan (24 weeks) and I love it, a big fan!
Hello! I am currently training on a 16 week Olympic triathlon plan and loving it.
The scientific structured training approach using data has been excellent.
The coaches feedback is vital in understanding how all of the insights work together to improve performance.
Many thanks for your plan and support in answering my questions, I really appreciate the time you took to support me.
Regards from Australia,
A big thank you Steve for all your coaching over the past few years and sorting me out with one of your plans.
I've finally got to a stage of being IM race ready & I couldn't have done it without your support and guidance
So thanks again
So Coach, the season is now done for me! I completed Outlaw X 70.3 on Sunday in a PB time of 5:13. My previous like for like was 5:36 in June 2019. So 2 years older and 23 minutes faster! Happy with that.
