That Was Then
A calendar on the wall. A lined notebook tucked away under your bed. A spiral-bound training diary emblazoned with that year’s digits on the cover. Back in the day, training logs took a tangible form and involved scribbling notes on pages that were rarely seen by anyone’s eyes but your own.
Training logs, regardless of the form they take, have long provided a historical documentation of one’s workouts and races, a reference point for evaluating training methods and a place to reflect on particular performances. They are among a runner’s most valuable tools for reflection as well as future planning.
