Plan Description


After racing 13 years on the international professional triathlon circuit, and training under some of the world leading triathlon coaches, I now want to share my knowledge and my own spin on training. My training plans have already helped many athletes to optimise performance, reach their sporting goals and succeed in running.


  • Sessions that are proven to work

  • Programs that are designed for peak performance at the right time

  • EMAIL ACCESS for any questions for the duration of the program

  • Reusable plan for future training


This program is designed for the Advanced Marathon runner who really wants to exceed in their next race with the help of some solid and structured training. This advanced program is still for the athlete who has a full time job.
To complete this program, you should be able to complete a 2 hour run

In this program you can choose to use Pace/Heart rate/ or feel as a measure of training intensity.

Hours will range from 3-8 hours

32 weeks is a long time to train, so I have put in a week off during the middle of this plan for you to refresh the mind and the body, and come back stronger. Please do not miss this!


Have any questions about the plan throughout your training? You will have email access to ask any questions you may have during your plan directly to Tony.


Specific strength workouts to compliment this plan. Ranging from general base phase all the way through to specific power work.
Don’t worry if you don’t have access to a gym, we have “home workouts” for you to complete.

Evolve Triathlon Coaching

I was a Professional Triathlete for 13 years, competing in 1 Olympics, and 2 Commonwealth Games. Since retiring as a professional athlete I have made it my mission to pass on the knowledge and experience I have gained over many years.

I believe that persistency is key and will always pay out in the long run. Finding balance in sport, work, family and friends is an essential to being able to train and race healthy and successful for many years.
