    my training journal

    i started keeping a winter\upcoming spring training journal (yes, i am a huge dork by the way ) i love logging in data and reviewing past days. i think this will be a huge part of keeping me motivated as the weather gets grim. i'm also hoping it will keep me on track for the races in the spring and summer. i toss it in my backpack and log in everything i eat as the day progesses. here are the categories i maintain:

    date:
    goal for the day:
    week goal:
    month goal:
    weather:
    bike used:
    mileage:
    time:
    route:
    average\max speed:
    how did i feel (scale from 1 to 10, and room for notes):
    gym routine:
    food for the day:
    supplements:

    do any of you do anything similar? what other things do you record or would find useful to look back on?

    I have these variables as well: wind speed and direction, air temp, and average heartrate.

    I like you rating for "how did I feel". I'm going to steal that.

    What about barometric pressure?

    If you're a numbers geek (I am!), you might enjoy my CycliStats ride logger and training diary. It tracks most of those things, and allows you to easily "slice and dice" your accumulated entries. In addition, it tracks some of your personal health stats (weight, resting heart rate, blood pressure, body fat percentage), along with bike maintenance activities (so you can easily see how many miles are on your chain, tires, etc.).

    It also automatically estimates calories burned and average watts for each ride, and includes a bunch of cycling-specific tools (e.g., gear calculator, wheel circumference calculator, etc.).

    You can download a free, fully functional, 30-day trial version from the website.
