Zambian international Memory Phiri has revealed her tight training schedule which keeps her in shape despite the absence of football in the wake of the novel coronavirus.
The global pandemic which began in Wuhan province, China, has touched every facet of life including football affecting the sport in an unprecedented fashion.
Until yesterday none of the major leagues in the world had taken to the pitch in months. Most footballers – both male and female have resorted to personal training and training under the coach’s guideline to stay in shape.
Revealing her training schedule amid COVID-19, Ms Phiri told online portal nbsportslive.com,
“I routinely have morning and evening workout sessions. Here is my workout schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Friday 3-mile run in the morning and body workouts in the evening.
She continued: “Wednesday – HIIT. Thursday, Saturday 3-mile run in the morning and ball workouts in the evening and on Sunday I do recovery.”
After marking her debut for the Zambian U17 Women’s team, Memory has not looked back on a career that is destined for greatness.
Currently studying and playing football simultaneously in the United States of America, Phiri, 22, plans to return to her native Zambia when her time in the United States elapse to play for Green Buffaloes Women’s Football Club.
