Rugby Training

Walked straight into a f**king bleep test didn’t I. New club in South London, nice group of guys all about my age or a few years younger. I’m only after the 3rd XV with the oldies – though now that I think about it i’m 6 mins from the pitch and my work is flexible enough that I could make training twice a week.

So the bleep test, i got 10.1 (excuses: too lazy to squeeze another 0.2 out my legs and I had squat doms that held me back). Outside backs have been set a target of 13.5, I like the idea of performance targets so i’ll work hard in the stamina side of training and see where I land.

Football – 75 mins.

Went to do my warm up jog and someone passed the ball to me so I kicked it back quite hard and tweaked my adductor. Absolutely livid with myself, i knew I was tight from rugby and warm up was priority number one.

5-a-side football tournament

Played 7 x 12-15 minute games, took the first few easy and gradually kicked the ball harder until i was near 100%. I did a lot of adductor rehab exercises, foam rolling, glute activation in the morning and it gave me the confidence to play.
