On here tho…Hard to commit to…Travel Nationally for work, so portability a prob. don’t take my laptop with me all the time. If you’re interested in my prog tho, drop me a line…(I’m a 100/200 sprinter)
Actually I keep two: The one on this forum, and then another, just because I like having a reference without having to get to the computer all the time.
It is also helpful to keep a hand written journal in case my coach in Greece for instance wants to see what I’ve been doing in the States for workouts.
The only difference is that the internet journal is a lot more detailed, including weather circumstances, personal moods etc. The other just lists the workouts and it’s a lot easier to go back to if I want to see what I did in previous seasons.
I was just wondering if a more thorough training diary, where you can put all info posted above (e.g., training details, food log and other comments about weather conditions, mood on a given day/session, etc) could be helpful in the training process.
And of course, going back to it with some analyses (e.g., tables, graphs, etc) could prove an effective way of monitoring how things are so far and how they can (further) improve!
I think some sort of software to help keep a training diary is an excellent idea. I keep a written one but I must admit I rarely make comparisons with previous years/months etc. I think if it was possible to make easy comparisons (through graphs/tables etc) it would make diaries more useful straight away- good idea Nikoluski!
