Training Diary
A training is an effective way of monitoring and evaluating an athlete’s progress. It can be used to reflect upon training sessions and how you felt it went but can also be used to reflect upon competitive performances. By keeping a training diary and reviewing it every week, it can be possible to build up an accurate picture of how an athlete may be developing. One issue with this may be that is a reflective piece, therefore an honest opinion of yourself is needed throughout to make records valid and reliable.
