A Quick Note About Record Keeping



A Quick Note About Record Keeping

One of the simplest and least expensive but most beneficial technics that you can employ to improve your health and fitness is to keep a training journal or “training diary”.

Recording your progress, or lack of progress, will allow you to visualize your training efforts and know when and where you need to make adjustments. This is especially important when you employ interval training.

You may recall from our prior post that interval training is a workout in which you alternate periods of high-intensity exercise with low-intensity recovery periods. It is particularly helpful when your trying to push yourself to the next level but your body isn’t quite ready.

Interval training is a great way to make progress for new or restarting exercisers as it gives you the opportunity to rest after pushing hard without completely stopping. By shortening the rest periods the next time you are out, you make progress.

But how much time did you exert yourself and how much time did you rest? How did your training today compare with last week’s training? Am I making progress?

By tracking your progress you can see the progress you are making even when you feel like you are not making progress. You can also see when you plateau which is a perfect time you shake up the routine. But with out recording your progress you may find it harder to see all of your progress.

A few more reasons include:

Accountability - Make yourself accountable to your diary. You will be less likely to skip your workout knowing that you will have to explain that blank page and make excuses why you skipped today. Your new running regimine will become a healthy habit more quickly if you make record keeping a habit as well.

Accomplishments - As you train and run past your initial 8 weeks, you will begin to set new daily and weekly records, longer distances and shorter times. You’ll be able to record and track these accomplishments and progress in your Runner’s Diary. If you don’t already have one, start yours today!

By tracking your progress, you create accountability to yourself and you can better manage your routine so that it is not so routine.

Get up and get moving.

Warning: Get a check up with your favorite physician before you start any exercise program.
