About the Book

Whether they're training for a marathon or just trying to stay in shape, runners log hundreds of miles every year. "The Runner's Diary" gives them a place to keep track of them all. Inspired by VeloPress' best-selling training diaries for triathletes and cyclists, this comprehensive journal allows athletes to record all the information they need to stay on target with training goals and to better understand their performance. With ample space to note distance, pace, heart rate, and effort level, runners can review their entire season or refer back to earlier workouts. Room for tracking daily vital signs like resting heart rate, soreness, and quality of sleep and nutrition helps runners keep tabs on their overall health, while a race section with space for dates, distances, and times helps them chart their progress.
