Ryan Leonard gives us a brief insight into Spain...Southend United midfielder Ryan Leonard will be giving you a break down of Blues' pre-season training camp in Malaga...
Day two started with an 8am breakfast before a 9am training session, I was hoping the weather would be a little cooler but we soon realised it was already 26 degrees on the thermometer! We were put through our paces with a lot of speed work by the fitness coach before a really tough football session which included a large directional possession game with all the boys getting a real good sweat on, believe me it was extremely tough.
Session two was an evening session, again out on the football pitch which I must add is second to none out here - We started off with a sight at the goals which got all the boys excited and the defenders were with the Gaffer for a defensive workout leaving us midfielders and strikers to be put through our paces in a sharp crossing and finishing drill.
We then finished off with a small sided game which both teams were desperate to win, Cocko (Graham Coughlan) joined in this part and unfortunately he wasn't quite rolling back the years no matter what he says.. Hahaha.
That finished a really tough but enjoyable day two - I'll come back with more tomorrow.
