EARNED RUNS THREE YEAR LOG; FREE DOWNLOAD!
KEEPING TRACK OF YOUR PROGRESS is one of the suggested methods for increasing adherence to a running plan, race training program, or exercise regimen. Keeping a log is often suggested. Most logs will be similar to a weekly or monthly calendar and very closely follow your plan/program/regimen. It can seem pointless to recreate the same information in a log. EarnedRuns has taken a bit different approach and designed a 3-year log.
The idea was borrowed from a weather log that I kept for 5 years. I would faithfully record the outdoor conditions beginning in January, when I hungered for sunny and clear skies regardless of the temperature. The exact times of sunrise and sunset were important to me then, as the gradual lengthening of the day was sign of making progress toward spring.
As soon as the weather improved significantly (in the Great lakes area, this was about April) I slacked off making log entries. As a result, this log will be downloadable one month at a time. It might be something that helps you some months but not others.
You can find the JANUARY LOG added to the website RESOURCES page; the others will be posted soon. It's a printable PDF. If you print 2-sided pages the upper portion of the sheets include the first half of the month and the bottom portion include the last half (cut pages in the horizontal middle). Seeing your progress year to year is one way of getting a BIG PICTURE view of the effects of your hard work during the previous year. It also may point out HIGH and LOW points that repeat themselves over the years, that might guide your efforts in the future.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
