Time Management...

Well the first year of University is nearly out of the way and with coursework assessments becomming increasingly thinner I have had the chance to get back out on the water.

Assessments that have been underway in the last few weeks have consisted of assignments and reports in modules including Adventure Sports, Sports Coaching and Exercise Science.

For the Adventure Sports module I have been writing a personal reflection which has involved myself choosing three personal incidents in an outdoor education context and critically reviewing each incident and analysing why each of the three incidents will benefit myself as an outdoor practitioner.
For the sports coaching module I have been writing an assignment on the moral and social issues in which sport coaches should have an indepth knowledge. Along with this I have included the legal requirements and legislative factors in which sport coaches should adhere to.

For the Exercise Science module I have written a report on the ways in which we can assess human performance. This has included myself taking part in exercise testing and comparing my results with normative data. The report also includes test protocols and ethical issues which coaches must adhere to when testing clients.

Boring coursework talk aside I managed to get out on the weekend with friends and run the river Erme from Harford bridge down through the Erme gorge. Video below...
