10 Mistakes Athletes Make When Developing a Training Plan: #1 – Not Evaluating Past Performance

Before you develop a training plan, you need to honestly assess your past performance. That’s the only way you can accurately identify your strengths and weaknesses as an athlete. To evaluate your performance, simply ask yourself 5 questions about your most recent season:

  1. What goals did I achieve during the season? How (be specific)?
  2. What goals did I fail to achieve during the season? Why (be specific)?
  3. What were my greatest strengths during the season?
  4. What were my most significant weaknesses during the season?
  5. Overall, how do I feel about my performance?

Consider these questions very carefully.  It is important to be clear about your successes, failures and the specific causes of each.  Use this assessment process as a learning tool to identify the steps you need to take to achieve your goals next season.
