Just wanted to say ended up with 2 PBs this season from one of your marathon plans – a B race half marathon PB (complete bonus – very happy) and nailed my A race marathon goal – thank you and happy holidays to you and your family Coach Steve
I completed my first 70.3 this week. Thank you so much for the beginner training plan! The event was a blast, and I surprisingly completed/finished feeling strong. I was actually amazed that I was not tired during the run and I owe a lot of that to your plan. I am already browsing what other plans you have out there!
Finished with a 6:09 and change. I was really happy with it overall.
Appreciate all your help along the way!

I’ve found the marathon plan really effective so looking forward to getting started on your IM plan in a few weeks.
Steve is a great coach, extremely responsive and sets a plan that will work for you! I seen my fitness increase way more during his plan than when I was creating my own. Would highly recommend!
A huge thanks to Coach Steve for his 40 week IM program. The pace of progression was ideal. It really helped to minimise injury and took me to the best shape of my life. Steve's help and enthusiasm when I had questions made me feel like I was always supported. The result was that I felt like I was 'racing' rather than simply dragging myself to the finish. Many thanks Coach Steve. I'll be back for the next plan!
Plan:46 week Ironman Beginner plan
Progress after 3months: 1st race of the season (Olympic)
Swim: After a chaotic start & 38mins later (my fastest open-water swim) I was on my bike. Which was a breeze. I started the run and was surprised to see that I finished my first mile at 7.30min. Your words "focus on good running form, engage the core, lean forward, land on the ball of the feet" became a mantra. And just like that I had my first sub-3 by a good 7minutes.
Thank you Coach Steve! You rock!
I took the 18 weeks marathon plan to prepare for my first marathon and succeeded! The plan and Steves support definitely contributed to reaching my goal!
The plan it self was very good and clear, and gave good variation. The quick and enthousiast email support from Steve to answer any kind of questions was a very nice addition.
Will come back in future when I need a plan and support. Keep up the good work!
Coach Steve Moody is a great Ironman Triathlon coach on Training Peaks. He is extremely accessible on email when I’m struggling. He takes the time to respond and adjust my workouts. I really appreciate the way he has tailored a training plan, especially for 50+-year-old athletes. Another thing that has helped me is the fact that Coach Steve has written a plan for 48 weeks compared to other plans that are only for 36 weeks or less. His plans use heart rate and power. I like how I can jump on my indoor bike and all I have to do is go to Zwift and Coach Steve’s Training Peaks workouts are automatically there for me! His plans are affordable, reusable, and effective.
