Product Description

Synopsis

The authors of the best-selling Runner's Handbook present a companion diary full of information, running tips, reference charts, and training schedules that allows runners to record their runs, times, distances, and other factors. Original.

From the Author

I use it myself several times each day!
We sell out the diary faster than we can stock them at our classes and at the New York Road Runners Club. It is really two books in one. Besides serving as an easy-to-use place to record your daily and weekly training, as well as your key speed workouts, long runs and races, it is a handy reference source. I refer to the charts for training paces, speed training and age-adjusted race prediction and scoring often. Lots of runners like using the sample 16-week marathon schedules since they are easy to flip to in the spiral-bound diary. This is my dream diary. It includes everything I've always wanted in a diary in my 30+ years of running.

Format: Spiral-bound
I was very disappointed with the Runner's Training Diary, particularly with the "log" portion of the book. The design seemed dated and too confining. I never had enough room to write much, and it was visually unpleasant with its boxes of various grey shadings for the different categories. I did find the articles and charts generally useful, but to me, the "log" portion is the heart of any logbook, and I ended up ditching my Training Diary and bought The Ultimate Runner's Journal, which was much more flexible, has a much "cleaner" design, great articles, and included color pictures to boot!

Over the years I have used a number of different types of journals to log my workouts (including electronic logs), and this one is far and away the best I have found. I am going on my 3rd volume in a few weeks. I love the flexibility and ease of use of the training diary section, and the wealth of helpful information for pacing and training included in the back.

Best training diary on the market 2 Dec. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
I'm now placing my order for my sixth consecutive yearly training diary. It's easy to use, attractively designed and there's plenty of room for recording your daily runs. I use all the charts in the back: the week-by-week mileage chart, the training mileage graph, record of races, pr chart. The pacing charts and race time comparison and predictor charts are indispensable (yes, you can find this info on the web, but it's great to have right here in the book for when you are traveling).
Every runner should keep a log like this. It helps keep you motivated and see your progress.

Finally! 14 Dec. 1999

Finally, a logbook that has charts for the slower runners of this world! Somebody finally realizes that not everybody runs a 9:00 minute mile! Thank you!

Great Log With Great Charts and Info 9 Dec. 2004
By CT runners - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
My husband and I have been using this log for nine years. Two new logs are our annual new year's present to each other. One year he tried a different one, another year I tried a different one, but we both find this log to have the best format, charts, extra info, etc. If you don't keep a log, try it. You'll be amazed at how helpful and interesting it is to have a diary of your runs.
