Log Book

I got a new heart rate monitor for Christmas, and I am working on a new Excel Spreadsheet. I am going to combine my bicycle logs with my HRM logs, and make a big log book for the year.

I also got a riding video, and a DVD player for the workout room, a 50oz camelback, and new sox. I made out like a bandit.

Anyhow if anyone wants a copy of my log book let me know, and I will post it.

Thanks guys, I am very excited about this winter's workouts. We had some down time this week, so I hate to say that I did most of it on the clock. Better than banging my head against the desk.

I feel that by spring I will be up to doing my road workups for my 100K ride. I thought that I would be doing this late summer, but the way I am feeling I think that as soon as the day stays over 65 I will be doing my metric century! That means that it is feasible that I will be able to punch out an American century before the end of the riding season.

Enjoy the log book, and enjoy the ride.

Heck, the double century will be in reach!

One goal at a time. I am shooting for 20 continuous minutes on the trainer first.

I got a DVD for Christmas, but I have to get a player to watch it. Oh well.

Holy keeerap! That is one sweet logbook. If I had an HRM, I'd definitely use it. I have some friends with HRMs, and I'm going to suggest your site to them.

By the way, what type of computer are you using to get the HR reading in those groupings?

I use my workout to keep track of what zone I am in. If I am working for zone 2 for 5 minutes, then jump to zone 3 for 3 minutes, and so on.

well sort of what Air said, how are you keeping track, manually or via your HR unit? Do you plan to work 5 minutes in zone 1, 15 in 2, ect or does your HR give you that level of detail?

I have a Timex Digital HRM.
http://www.timex.com/gp/product/B000...imexBrand=core

What I do is set my target Heart rate, and start the timer. It will tell me how long in the selected HR zone. from that I can deduce how long I was in the other zone.

I workout in zone 3, and my body does a dash through zone 1, so I figure what time I am not in zone 3 I am in zone 2 less 3 minutes. I had my wife work closely with me the first few times I worked out, and with her we figured that 3 minutes is about right.

I wish my HRM would brake it down for me, but alas I have to do some work myself.

I didn't get a chance to take pictures last night, but I will have them for you tomorrow. I think I am going to have fun with the pictures, so be watching my web page.

Thanks for the log book, I just purchased a Sigma Sport PC15 that actually has 3 "fitness zones" and keeps the minutes and percentage of time spent in each zone so I modified your form to just the three heart zones and really think it will be a great tool. Again thanks!

I think the HRM honed my workouts, and I am sure it will make a difference with yours.

Keep pushing it down the road

Bigmark,
Great log! And we have the same HRM! I purchased mine about 3 years ago (when i was a runner). Because the watch tends to beep at me too much when I'm outside of a zone, I use the manual zone and have the range at 62 - 180. This gives me a bit to record and during a workout I check it about every 10 minutes.
