AFL – Day 2

Day 2

Day 2 started at ‘early o’clock’ with a boot camp at St. Kilda beach before a ten minute recovery session in the sea. I think its fair to say I’ve NEVER been as cold in my life, although my muscles are thanking me! We had another training session in Visy Oval No. 1 (Visy Park next door being Carlton’s home) with Scott Lucas and Jason McCartney that focused on goal kicking and kicking in general. After my 13 behinds last weekend this session was listened to very carefully and all tips duly noted!

The evening concluded with a talk and lively discussion with The Age journalist, ABC reporter and Friday Night Footy presenter Sam Lane. Sam gave us an overview of her career and the ensuing discussion provided some interesting views on how female sport is represented in the media and where women’s AFL is heading. It also gave us what must be the ‘funny moment’ of the camp so far, with our own Nat giving Sam an impromptu hug mid-talk in what can only be described as a ‘you’d have to have been there’ moment!
