    Football Performance as a fitness goal

    I am a fan of Darebee for a long time. However, I have only recently 'discovered' the Hive, this supporting and enthusiastic community. I believe that the principles and values that Darebee supports are AMAZING and should be taught to children from an early age!

    I am 30, I love football and I have spent the last season playing football at a local team. My program was two football training sessions per week and a football match during the weekend.

    The season has finished from the beginning of April 2019 and since then, and after of 6 friendly matches, there is no scheduled training until the end of August, when the preseason period starts. I am already experiencing the bad results of not being physically active and this bothers me. Through football I have managed to build a strong pair of legs and reach a very good level of stamina and speed. But everything is falling apart and I am worried. This is why you read this right now!

    For the past month (May 2019) I attempted the 50 push-ups a day challenge with partial success (1310 push-ups during May). Still this is the largest number of push-ups per month for me! This is the only thing that I managed to do in terms of training (and a couple of 30-minute runs).

    So, now, the general objective is to be in the best possible condition until the end of August. I forgot to mention that I have registered a couple of months ago for a half marathon (21km) race.

    So my primary target is this right now: 21km. My recent training sessions:

    3/6/19: 35' 5.5 km
    6/6/19: 30' 5 km
    9/6/19: 44' 8 km
    10/6/19: mini football (5-a-side) game for 70'

    I am sure that I do not have the time to get to 21km from 8 km. However, I will try my best for the remaining days. And then I plan on focusing on an HIIT program, which I will choose when the time comes. I felt the need to write everything down, in order to get some motivation. Thank you!

          Yesterday, 13/6/19:
          Running
          Distance: 12.06 km
          Time: 1 hour 8' 50''.
          Average pace: 5'42''/km
          Longest distance covered (running) ever
          Longest time spent running
          But still long way to go until 21 km (the race is in one week exactly and I do not believe that I can do it)
