Training Log 2011 Review and Giveaway!



I was recently given the opportunity to review the Training Log 2011. I am a runner who likes to keep track of what I do, and I would rather do it on paper than online. So, I googled running logs/journals and came across this log that has been around for 28 years. Phil was nice enough to send me two logs - one to review and one to give away. Since it is a log for 2011, I obviously haven't actually used it yet, but I have studied it quite a bit. As for the many things I love about this log: 1. It is predated for the 2011 running year. You don't have to write in the dates; they are already there for you. 2. Unlike the one I'm using right now, it has a place to record the pace of each run, not just the total time. 3. The best part? IT HAS A RACE SECTION FOR EACH WEEK! In the race section, you can record the name of the race, your time, your place in gender, age group, and overall. I love that!

All in all, this log is going to be something I love. It's so very simple, but not at the same time!

Now...onto the giveaway!

Ways to get entries:

1. Mandatory: Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment telling me you already are or have become a new follower. New followers...WELCOME!

  5. Right now just have a notebook that I write in. I have a fancy excel spreadsheet (but I have yet to upload my info into it). This year I was one of the Chicago Diary writer so that kept me on par on keeping track of my training. But I would love a "true" training Manuel.

  11. My current logging system is kind of all over the place. I was using an iTouch until it broke and I lost everything. Going back to a stone tablet has its appeal!
