Logging your workout Posted: Mon Jun 13, 2005 3:31 pm 

I'm curious about what sort of running logs people use to record and track their run workouts.

For the past 3-4 years I've been using for a software program called "RunMaster." I purchased it through Road Runner Sports...but I don't think it's available anymore because I can't find a link to it on their web site. A Google search took me to Peak Running Performance, but their site doesn't seem to have any mention of it. That's too bad becasue I think it's a pretty good program. It allows you to plan and record all types of workouts (Running, cycling, swimming, weight training, etc.). It allows you to plan and track your diet and calories consumed/burned. It has the ability to help you plan a training schedule for completing a Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, or 5K with a goal time in mind. It even tracks the milage on my shoes. I like this program a lot, but since it doesn't appear to be supported anymore I wonder if there is another program out there that is even better.

Is anyone else using a software program that they think is worth looking into.

Well, I don't use software, I use a good ol' pencil and paper, in a manilla folder... I then find the mean of the data by the week, month, 1/2 year, etc... Of course, I've only been logging for about a year now, in fact, in one month and three days it will be a year, so, I don't really have too much running logged...

You need to download the free Excel file from the Dead Runners Society. It has some interesting features...all driven by macros that work off your planned and logged runs as well as a bit of other configured data you feed into it. It's a great (FREE) runner's log. Goto the software page at http://storm.cadcam.iupui.edu/drs/software.html and look for a downloadable file called runlog.exe by David Hays.

I've been using RunLog Deluxe by Pegasus Software for a long time and find it to be very useful and versatile. There are a lot of features to the program and it can be customized in numerous ways to make it fit your particular circumstances.
