Maintaining a Daily log or a Journal is an important part of Athlete’s daily routine. The log covers the exercises undertaken during the day, sleeping hours, your diet pattern and end of the day self-evaluation. Having a log always helps one to keep track of training in a proper manner.
“Without proper self-evaluation failure is inevitable”. These were the words of legendary US Basketball coach John Wooden. According to him “Without a plan and a method of periodic measurement, you really can’t claim to be maximizing your talents. If you don’t have a chart or two in your home that you mark daily, or at least twice a week, you surely are achieving below your capacity.” So, self-evaluation and filling up a daily log should be part of every athlete’ daily routine. This way you can monitor the progress one has made over a period of time.
The objective of learning from your past performances is to find ways to improve in your chosen sport. Humans have a tendency to make mistakes and more so under pressure of sports performance and there is always a margin of human error in every sports performance. Post-match evaluation is a way to find out the high and lows of your performance in the competitive matches
We rate each post practice self-evaluation question on the scale of 1 to 100. This is the easiest way to know the days you have done well and days you have not. You can also find out which parameters you rated better than the others. For example, one day your ‘Mental Focus’ might be excellent and you rated it as 90 out of 100 while on the other day you lacked ‘Effort’ in your training and you rated it 50 out of 100. So, it will be easier way to track your training performance
