For a few years I’ve been keeping track of my workouts with small spiral notebooks. I’ve actually filled up several of them. The last one I had covered from October of last year to right up to the Portland Marathon. So today I went and purchased a new one. Yes, I’m a dork. But I’m really excited about it.
There is something satisfying about looking through hundreds of pages detailing workouts. I also write down everything I eat and how I feel that day. I detail personal issues and how my body feels. Doing this lets you see progress, regress, trends, etc. It keeps you honest and keeps you inspired.
