Daily Training Routine for David Harte

7am: Wake-up

The first thing I do is get some food in and this consists of porridge, scrambled eggs and beans, cereal, fruit and juice. I leave for training at 8.15am.

9.30am: Training

On a Monday, the first thing to do is get any injuries assessed and we have a physio available here if needed.

12pm: Cool down

This might not sound like much but it is an essential part of training. Here, we take our protein shakes on board and have ice baths to help with recovery if we need.

12.30pm: Lunch

We’ll make our way to the Irish Institute of Sport for lunch, which would usually be something simple like chicken salad and some couscous-based dishes.

2pm: Strength and conditioning session

This session is done in the gym at the Irish Institute of Sport — a facility we are blessed to have access to. Normally lasts about 90 minutes.

4pm: Individual training/video analysis

Usually eat a cereal bar and get a protein shake on board before this pitch-based session. Afterwards, I’ll do goalkeeper training until 7pm.

7pm: Cool down

Return to Irish Institute of Sport after cool down for dinner with the team. Again, it is a simple dish like lasagne or a cottage pie.

8pm: Team meeting

This will involve a sports psychology chat or a nutritional talk. We then go back to the hotel around 9pm.

10.30pm: Bed time

Get some much-needed sleep to repeat the same process the next day.
