Hi

I have seen links on here to good training diaries/blogs but can't seem to find them!
Could anyone please recommend a good one.
I have been off running for 5 months due to an injury and want to make sure that I am keeping track of my progress properly so it doesn't reoccur!
Also it will hopefully provide me with some much needed motivation!

Thanks for your help

Hi Hoggle

I monitor all my training in www.fitnessjournal.org

It's American, but still good despite that... ;o)

You can log your daily activity (running, cycling, swimming, walking, weights... whatever you want), put in your race dates, compare your distances/hours training with others, see your progress in miles plotted over a map of the US or Canada or Australia...

There's lots of little motivating bits and bobs in it. You can even monitor your diet, although I found it quite time consuming after a while. It was useful for me to do it for a bit to see where I was going wrong though... How many bags of crisps...?!?!? :o)

I can't remember how much it cost - worked out about £25 or so - maybe... I just put it on my credit card.

The good thing about it is you can keep it updated wherever you are, as long as you have internet access.

Good luck!

Hoggle,

go for it, I'm just coming back from Achilles tendonitis, it's not quite fixed yet, but it's now bearable.

I got so frustrated with not running that I started again (taking sensible precautions) and now feel so much better.

email me if I can help motivate you in any way

Thanks, thats what I need to here!
I am going to the gym today and am going to do a short session on the x-trainer to see how I go!

Good luck with you recovery as well!
