The training went well and the athletes enjoyed the session as they controlled their own rest periods. A game of ladders was used to keep fun at a high.
The session was based at Yarborough School Sports Hall. The warm up was coach delivered due to limitations of space. the Coaching assistants set up the equipment while the warm up was in session.
The main session had 9 stations (see session plan for more). The athletes started with 30 seconds rests between 1minute effort stations. I noticed some athletes were starting to show signs of boredom, so I asked if they were out of breath. of which a quick “no” occurred. This resulted in recovery times being reduced to 15 seconds, then 10 seconds.
Room for Improvement
Challenge athletes according to their ability individually if needed.
