I started my one session in my 5th week today, I did a short session than normal, but was enjoyable and worthwhile.
I started off with a ten minute bike ride to the field, then a five minute jog, followed by a 5/10 minute stretch.
5 Mins - Kick-up's, one left, one right for 5 solid minutes.
5 Mins - Ball control - generally hit the ball in the air and certain distances from my body and try and bring the ball down succesfuly.
1xSprint Track - I did the jog/sprint drill, where I would jog three sides of the pitch, sprint one, then jog 2, sprint 2 e.t.c. I did this around the outside of a Mini Soccer pitch.
I then started with the ball at my feet at one goal-mouth of a Mini Soccer pitch, and did what Gio calls "Suicides", but with a ball running high pace looking up. I did it to the edge of box and back, to centre line and back, to opponents box and back, then to the opposite goal-line and back.
5 Mins fluids.
I then use the length of a Mini Soccer goal-area to do in-betweens to the line and back x7.
I then have a twenty/thirty minute shooting/passing session. (I have these two big white board/blockers, which the Cricketers use, do you know what I mean? I couldn't find a pic on the net to show). I just use my trainers to create a goal, and this board reflects any shots, and there is a little square where I try to drop long balls into.
There is metal rail along the bottom so I use it as a barrier for the shots & passing. So I now do one-touch one left pass, one right pass low against this barrier from about 5 yards away.
I then did my warm-down. Not much today but that was a general gist of one of my easier sessions.
Total time of around 1hr30 mins.
