Editorial Reviews

Review

"Training logs accept all workouts equally, the low key and boring as well as the sensational. Start to fill these empty spaces."--Amby Burfoot, winner of the Boston Marathon and executive editor of Runner's World
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

After nearly four decades of running, more than 100,000 miles logged and something like 12,000 separate entries in my training journals, I have three favorite days: one, the day I won the Boston Marathon (of course); two, the day i got married (of course); and three, the day I got married again (hey, no one's perfect, and the second time around was particularly sweet).

Here, in short, is what I wrote in each of those three log entries.

April 19, 1968: "27 miles, including 26.2 miles in Boston Marathon. I won! Felt great the whole way until side stitch the last 2 miles. But I struggled through it."

November 1, 1970: "20 miles, really hard, with a bunch of my running friends who are here for the wedding. The last 5 miles, we were practically racing. What a competitive group!"

July 4, 1995: "3-mile jog in the Groton Long Point July 4th fun run with Cristina, Gary, Dan, Laura, Bill and Jeff. A gorgeous sunny, dry day. We couldn't have hoped for anything better." [Note--The names mentioned, in order: the woman I would marry several hours later; my brother, who performed the ceremony; my two teenage kids; my brother-in-law; my nephew.]

My changing priorities are clear. Once I ran for speed and distance. Now I run for health and friendship and release--to enjoy 30 or 40 minutes away from the phone and the computer. I still seek challenge on occasion, and still enter races when they appeal to me. But mostly I run to clear my head of the day's swirling activities and to enjoy the wondrous thoughts and images that rush in to fill the void.

I hate to admit it, but I've never been any good at keeping a journal--one of those personal diaries that chronicles all the highs and lows of a life. Instead, my best efforts have gone into my training logs. There's no screeplay or Pulitzer Prize int he dozens of these logs I've kept over the years, arranged a bit haphazardly across the bottom tier of a bookcase, but they're good friends, and that counts for a lot.

Thumbing through the pages, I'm carried instantly to the places I've run and the people who have sweated at my side. In high school, we ran through

I'm a beginner runner and love this book.

This journal helped me be accountable to myself and the motivational quotes and tips were very helpful to me as well.

This is a great training journal! Not only does it have a space to record daily run info, but it has little tips and fun facts on every page.
For each day, there is a space to fill in the route you took, distance and time, any cross-training you did, how you felt, and thoughts. At the end of the week, there is a place to record your weekly total miles of running, and your total milage to date.
There are 52 weeks of log space in this journal.
Start recording your milage, feelings, and thoughts now... you will benefit from it in the future... and it may even give you some laughs to see how you felt starting out.

The 2006 edition has been released. The earlier reviews were written about the earlier edition (2001 or 2002?) and the editors seem to have taken the feedback to heart and have come up with a much improved version this year. For this edition, instead of having the week start at Sun, they have decided to put the weekend together, starting the week at Mon and then ending with Sat and Sun. There is plenty of space to write. The pictures and captions are colorful, attractive and useful. There is half a page of notes for you to fill up with thoughts of your runs, nutrition, whatever you want at the end of each week.

I just started running 3 months ago and I found this journal really helpful. Just the thought of filling up the pages with my runs motivate me to do better each work. It feels great to see that your efforts are paying off when you go through the filled pages and see how your mileage has been going up. Also, I use the empty half page to put down my calories intake, my goals for the week (whether for running or for personal life) and my thoughts. It is like having a friend! I recommend this for beginning runners!

Full color is nice. Organized and has places for miles, time, etc.

Only con is I wish it had more space for writing comments daily, instead of the big weekly comment box. That's just my personal preference, there's nothing wrong with this log.

This is my third year using this journal.....I can't find anything that's any better than this. I can fit all my needed information into each day. I also love that I can start this journal when I want & fill in the dates myself.

This is my second journal so I've been using it for a year. It's pretty much got everything covered but it would be nice if there was a little more room to record daily cross training and more space for recording races in the back of the book since I do more then space allows. I've bought and tried other journals but they do not compare. I like the "Tip of the Week" and there is even a running quote to keep you motivated. Buy this journal whether you're a beginning runner or been running forever and want to keep a record of all that hard work as well as the good times.

This running log was very disappointing in two respects. First, it isn't calendar based so you have to fill in the dates, and even then there's not a space given to record the date for each particular day, only for the week. Secondly, there's simply not nearly enough space for writing comments for each run. I like to really have space to describe the weather, how I felt, how hard I felt I was running, etc. You just don't get it here. I just paid good money for this and find it just isn't very usable for my purposes at least. It's not rocket science to come up with a really nice functional running log- The Compete Runner's Day by Day Log and Calendar had it just right for years until they messed it up this year.

Format: Spiral-bound
As the title of the book suggests, this is simply a journal for you to record your daily runs, some info about your races and times, and your shoe history. Each page lists space to record info for 3 days of running, and has a quote about running or a tip off to the side. While the tips are helpful for new runners, and the book might be a nice motivational fctor, there is really nothing here that you can't find off the Internet by typing in "running tips" in a search engine.

If you don't have Internet access, it would be a decent book, but Runners World's own web site (and many other sites) has a much more comprehensive online training journal that can not only log your runs, shoes, and routes, but provide detailed reports and graphs as well.

The price of the book is low enough so that it's not really a bad deal, just a little behind the times. But if you like having a written journal, it's not a bad deal.

This has been really great for recording my runs. It's allowed me to keep better track of my goals. It is also very motivating and includes really applicable fun facts.
