First Time Athletes
|Daniel Velardo||Victoria||Marathon||I achieved a personal best and gained many other benefits by slowing down. My recovery was better, I wasn’t sore during runs, and my body was always ready for the high-intensity speed sessions.|
|Christi Landaeta||Venezuela||Half Marathon||After a lengthy break from running, I ran the Miami Beach Halloween Half Marathon in 2:40:56. Since then I've been following the principles laid out in the 80/20 Running book. I ran another Half marathon in Caracas, Venezuela and got me a PB of 02:12:13. The result speaks for itself!|
|Roger Thompson||Washington||Olympic||Thanks to your plans, I was able to capture a USATriathlon National Title in Cleveland this year.|
|Chris Rydelski||Wisconsin||IRONMAN® or equivalent||I PR'd in the Ironman 70.3 as well this year by 20 mins!|
|Tom Bryant||London||Marathon||In April 2019, I ran my first marathon in 3:50. Five months later, after training with an 80/20 plan, I ran the Berlin Marathon in 3:36 (a 14-minute improvement!)|
|Alex Ochoa||Ciudad de México||Sprint||When I started to use my current 80/20 triathlon training program I realized that my endurance and performance were increasing.|
|Bettina Dorsch||Germany||Sprint||The training was intensive, but did not burn me out. And I still had enough time for my family and my job!|
|Brendan Griffin||Texas||5K||I never got through a block of training without injuring myself and feeling so frustrated about starting over. I finally found what works for me with 80/20 Running. No injuries, a personal best, and a newfound love of running!|
|Tom Brooks||Victoria||Half Marathon||80/20 works. I've gotten amazing results and remained injury-free.|
|Barnaby Coupe||Nottingham||Olympic||I switched to the 80/20 Olympic Plan in January 2019, which allowed me to train far more consistently and I ended up taking over 20 minutes off my PB in May 2019.|
|David Raymen||Hertfordshire||IRONMAN® 70.3 or equivalent||I used the 80/20 plan this year and found it great, as I have a busy life juggling work and a young family. It just took the worry out of thinking about what to do.|
|Paul Carroll||Shropshire||Half Marathon||I'm training for a marathon with an 80/20 plan but I ran a half marathon as race prep and got a three-minute PB.|
|Doug Simms||Washington||IRONMAN® 70.3 or equivalent||I used 80/20 for the first time in attempting to go below 5 hours in an Ironman 70.3. It was a definite game changer. I would highly recommend the programs. |
|Konstantinos Michopoulos||Greece||Marathon||I found my 80/20 Marathon Plan coherent, thorough, and easy to follow, with thorough information and additional resources.|
|Elizabeth Sweet||New York||IRONMAN® 70.3 or equivalent||80/20 plans take all of the guesswork out of training for triathlon. I have successfully used the plans for both the half and full Ironman distance and each time I have crossed the finish line feeling strong, confident, and happy! |
|Gavin Moore||Queensland Australia||IRONMAN® 70.3 or equivalent||I used your plan in the lead-up to Cairn 70.3 in June 2019. I was fitter and stronger than in my first attempt at a half IM and came away with a strong finish.|
|Jason Hendy||Massachusetts||IRONMAN® 70.3 or equivalent||After learning the hard way what overtraining syndrome was in my first year in triathlon, and only training at one speed in year two, using the 80/20 method revolutionized my training in year three.|
|Jon Ottosson||Sweden||10K||The 80/20 method helped me shave minutes from my 10K time.|
|Kurt Phillips||Ohio||Sprint|| As a result of following my 80/20 plan plan to the letter, I dropped my sprint triathlon time from 1:27 to 1:09! |
|Lindsey Noseworthy||Massachusetts||IRONMAN® 70.3 or equivalent||After having three surgeries in eight months to realign my right leg, I knew I had to train smarter. 80/20 was the perfect balance to avoid the overtraining and damaging injuries. |
|Luke Henderson||Victoria||IRONMAN® or equivalent||The 80/20 plan was great. It kept training super interesting and intentional, and helped lift me to a new level.|
|Michelle Lee||Washington||Half Marathon||With the 80/20 Half Marathon HR Plan I was able to get my aerobic base up and cut my time by over 30 minutes.|
|Markus Boehler||Austria||IRONMAN® or equivalent||The last races with your plans were very succesfull.|
Thank you for that.
|Martijn Crajé||Gelderland||IRONMAN® 70.3 or equivalent||80/20 is the Holy Grail for me. I can actually feel the improvement, but I am never too tired to train.|
|Tim Siegenbeek van Heukelom||New South Wales||Marathon||I've been using your plans since 2015 and they have helped me with a range of (half) marathons, trail runs, ultras, and simply keeping fit. Best thing I ever did to improve my running was adopting the 80/20 practice.|
|Michael Schollmeier||Illinois||IRONMAN® or equivalent||The 80/20 training plan ramps athletes up though the various training phases, intensities, and distances to help keep you injury free. The increases in distance were easily managed. I highly recommend the purchased plan versus simply using a training plan from the 80/20 Triathlon book. Finding and adjusting my various zones was fairly easy to do. I had an issue with one area, and emailed for assistance. I received a very quick and helpful reply from David. So happy with my results. I will use 80/20 plans again next year.|
Thank you for your plans!
|Seth Baglin||California||IRONMAN® 70.3 or equivalent||By following 80/20 Endurance, I not only drastically lowered my HR during my training and race, but I shaved off 50 minutes from my time!|
|Steffen Rettig||Saxon||IRONMAN® or equivalent||The 80/20 plan was perfect for me.|
