Note Worthy

If Bridget Jones has a diary...then I'm going to have one also!!! :) I started contemplating on having one after I read an issue of Runner's World magazine a few days ago. The magazine got me motivated again. I love all the inspirational stories of ordinary people who excel in running , diet tips, running tips and product recommendations. It's so overwhelming actually but I'm learning a lot. One article discussed about having a training journal to keep runners motivated and focused. I think this is what I really need now. I've read about keeping a journal when dieting but I haven't tried it yet. So this time, I'm determined to have one so that I can achieve my ultimate goal in life (for now!) --- losing weight!

The journal can just be a wall calendar or an online diary.(I decided to just log mine in a planner.)
As suggested by Runner's World, these are the things that should be written down in a runner's training journal:

Mileage ( or time)
Routes and Terrain
Interval or Race Times
Temperature and Time

Morning weight
Aches or Pains

Food (before and after the run)
Goals (set targets daily, weekly and monthly)
