How do you log your miles? Literally - do you right them down, use an excel worksheet, rely solely on a garmin, etc?
I'm still running and would like to get back on some sort of a schedule; I've just kinda been all over the place since the marathon. I'd like my weekly mileage to be around 20ish and complement that with strength training this winter.
In the past, I've logged on an excel worksheet in detail or I've printed out training plans and put them on the fridge, highlighting for completing the workout. Since I finished the marathon, I keep looking at the fridge blankly wondering what I should be running - I'm so lost without a plan :)
Now I just need something simple. It would be nice to easily keep track on my weekly and monthly mileage just to know. But I've never done that before, so I'm wondering what you find simple to use??
I use a spreadsheet in Google docs. I track the date, route, distance, shoes and make some notes regarding weather.ReplyDelete
I use Daily Mile, and love it. It's basically a social media site, but for running. You can add friends, comment on runs, etc.ReplyDelete
I use Daily Mile and I also upload all of my runs from my Garmin into the Garmin Connect site. It's nice to be able to look back at what I've done pace and distance-wise.ReplyDelete
As for a training plan, you could go to something like SmartCoach on Runner's World and generate a maintenance plan. I usually keep something like that on my fridge, too, so that I'm accountable (plus, it always feels good to highlight a completed run!)
Honestly? Dailymile.. and thats it.. I know its a horrible way to log it (site crash, whatever) but for now thats what I do.. Im beginning to use the Garmin software..but all of my training prior to getting the Garmin is just on DailymileReplyDelete
use my garmin and an iphone app called Running Log. I know - clever title. lets' me categorize each run by pace and more. also keeps track of total miles per week/month/year. it will also average out your weekly pace, monthly pace, yearly pace.ReplyDelete
I LOVE runningahead.com. If you have a Garmin, you can connect it; but if not, you can enter the info manually. It's a great website!ReplyDelete
I use daiilmile too. You have a Garmin and it makes it so easy to sync it.ReplyDelete
I use the daily mile and my Garmin downloads. Both are very easy to use, though daily mile is more social so that makes it fun.ReplyDelete
Garmin Connect. I just add comments on how crappy or exciting the workout was. I use it for strength training too.ReplyDelete
I run with my Garmin, so I have all of my running stats on my Garmin connect dashboard. But, I also then sync my Garmin stats to both dailymile.com and runningahead.com. I like dailymile for the social aspect, and I like runningahead for all the fun charts and graphs you can create.ReplyDelete
