Sports Science, two 1 hour 30 minute lessons, not always fitness, depends on what we do: o One of the first things we did was do a 5 km run to akarenga and back. I failed miserably.

Special Days o Basketball tournaments. Intense days of basketball, 6-‐7 hours a day.

Spring season: • My weekly routine: Physical education (same) Sports science o There were many days where we ran up steps. Those were extremely hard, and challenged my cardiovascular strength and endurance. o We also did many circuits. These circuits included weight training and muscle toning. Soccer, 2 times a week 1 hour 30 minute practice: o Components similar to basketball. o I really challenged my cardiovascular endurance because I was rarely ever subbed off and the weather conditions were bad and I have asthma. o There were a lot less practices Special Days: o On may 15th, I went for my first 6 km run. I’d never accomplished that distance, or I never tried. Since I hadn’t run in a while and the weather was good, it seemed as if my feet were carrying me any I didn’t feel tired at all. I ran 6km without even knowing it. o Soccer tournaments. Intense days of soccer in intense weather conditions.
