In future posts, I'll talk about the process of how I put this together which will hopefully help you to put together a suitable plan for you. I'm still in the process of discovering how to build purposeful and actionable plans to train, so I'll keep you up to date as I learn new things.
- Win at least one medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow
To achieve my outcome goal I will...
- Average 49.7 or more at short range
- Average 48.5 or more at long range
- Develop and refine a single technique with my new rifle
- Improve my cardiovascular fitness significantly
- Ensure that my posture and core strength is in good form for shooting
- Keep my kit in top condition
- Maintain a healthy diet
To reach the level of performance necessary to achieve my performance goals I will...
- Shoot at least 60 shots per week on a SCATT from Jan - Jul 2014
- Live fire at least 3 times per month on average from Mar - Jul 2014
- Practice imagery for at least 7 shots per session at least four times per week from Jan - Jul 2014
- Keep my training diary carefully, noting down lessons from training & live fire practices
- Run at least five miles per week from Jan - Jul 2014
- Do light weights / resistance training at least 3 times per week on average
- Ensure I put away my kit carefully after each training session
- Get my rifle thoroughly checked by my armourer at the start of the season, including trigger weight
- Get my rifle rebarelled at the start of the season and keep the spare barrel in case of emergency
- Get my eyes tested at the start of the season and have a new lens + spare made
- Get my shooting jacket checked and re-cut
- Hydrate properly during training and competitions
Riddle me this though; if you've not got at least a rough plan in mind then how do you expect to improve?
