I liked the old Penguin Brigade Training Log a lot, but this new 2nd Edition is even better. It has space to record your basic training details -- where you ran and how far -- but also space to record the weather, your diet, heart-rate, cross-training, sleep hours, weight, and mood. It tracks your goals on a daily, weekly, and yearly basis. I like the new I-Rate system of rating your personal effort separate from the objective measures of mileage.
It keeps me focused and inspired every day, without fail. The new photos are beautiful, too. Really nice package.

I am a big fan of John Bingham, and credit his book "The Courage to Start" as a major inspiration to me to begin running and making it a part of my life. Even better (if you choose only one of his books) is "No Need for Speed" which covers many of the themes but is a more complete beginner's guide to running. John is a fine writer and motivator especially for those of us who are "at the back of the pack". That said, I found his training log disappointing. Essentially you have a some running tips from John and Jenny (which are very good, but all are found in his books) and the same single page (the weekly log) copied 52 times and spiral bound. If this is what you are looking for, it's fine. I prefer tracking my running and races on an Xcel spreadsheet. Even a regular notebook would do about the same. The bottom line for me is that if you don't own both of his books, either would be a better purchase.

Bingham is a great motivator if you need a little help. For us, putting our training down in writing is a motivator too. A calendar works, of course, too, but then you miss out on his little fun tidbits of wisdom.

About the only thing this one doesn't do is the exercise for you! (That's why only 4 stars) Space to track what you need to, and you can add what detail you choose, but doesn't micro-manage.
