I initially got in touch with F4L Triathlon Coaching after doing a few triathlons with my own training but was not seeing any improvement. I had hit a plateau, was bored doing the same sort of things and had no idea how to progress. Paul was really approachable and explained how the coaching would work and was keen to find out what I wanted to get out of it. The plans are simple and easy to access and follow and are based around your availability to train, taking into account work and family life. They are done in advance and are e-mailed every day so you know exactly what you are supposed to be doing and when, so no excuses! Paul is always on hand for help and advice. He really makes you feel like you are the only person he is training. With only 2 months training I am already knocking minutes off the same races from last year and entered a half ironman, coming in over 20 minutes faster than I had hoped for. From being at the back of the pack when I started triathlon in 2011 Paul has given me the confidence and belief to compete in races not just try and complete them.  Just this week I did a new 400m swim pb!! Looking to the future i've made the ultimate decision and entered a full iron distance event for next season and I know, that with the help, support and knowledge of F4L Triathlon Coaching I will be ready to become an ironman!
