Used to keep one on here, but have been very lapse recently!

NEXT!
Very remiss of you :p

It helps with motivation...I put brief details on here and write a diary at home...have done for years...not a lot goes in ...generally just time and distance plus some weather details if relevant.

since the start of 2008 I;ve kept my training log/blog on here pretty much up to date, though admitedly I do fall behind from time to time (e.g. now!)

I like to use one when I'm in training for an event. But otherwise I feel it takes some of the fun away from my running, I don't like 'having' to beat my last run distance/time.

I used to just write down the distance in a notebook (I only run for 30 minutes at a time) and note how I felt and any injury niggles.

I've not been running regularly because of injury, but I got a new phone which has sportstracker on it and I've used it a couple of times (I think it records similar info to a garmin).

I also like to use the training blog on here, albeit irregularly :confused:

I've recorded everything I've done since I started running on April 9th, 1986. Apart from the date I record what sort of a session it was (long run/intervals/hill reps/race), where it was, the distance and the time. I've also recorded injuries, treatments, medications, etc... It makes interesting reading. It tells me to date I've run 30,478 miles, run 280 races and registered 135 category wins on Road, Track, X-Country and Fells. I often look at it and wonder "How the 'ell did I do that?"
Cheers!

I use the blog on here and also my own blog (see sig).

I find looking back at times etc useful, as I can see how much I've actually improved when I feel stuck - but I also like to write a lot of incidental details about how I was feeling as well, as it's interesting to look back and see my mental progress as well, as times don't always tell the whole story :cool:

Don't tell me you're still working in your 70's! :huh:
The way I do it Trin, running is bloomin' hard work, not to mention bombing up and down ruddy great hills, knocking off Munros and daft stuff like that. And by the way, we're off to the Alps again this Thursday. If I've time, I'll think about you!
Cheers!

Only started keeping a note when I got the Garming 305 - cos it done it all for you ont he computer :)
Use Training Centre and Sporttracks software with it.

Use it for both running and cycling - it records a whole host of data, but I tend to only check distance/times/heart rate/pace

Also started using the blog on the forums when I joined up.

Lucky you, RF, I wish I was off on holiday too!

As far as my training diary goes, I log dates, times, distances and location of my runs. If I'm doing weights, I log the weight lifted and the number of reps for each set.
