I've been an active member of SMR for nearly three years now and JUST discovered the personal training log on the site. I started using it this year and found it quite motivating. I'm not sure if I would have even bothered if I hadn't read a blog on the Manassas VA SMR team site......you see, I looked because I figured that I'd know a couple of gals on the team. I read one of their blogs that described how one of them has set her New Year's goal for 1000 mile ran in 2008 (Katy). I thought....CRAZY!!!! Then I felt completely incompetent to be on one of these teams. Then I started calculating in my head......I run more than I think I do. (Perhaps a little ADHD??!!) Granted, I am no where close to 1K, but 500 would seem like a reasonable goal for me. That would be only averaging 1 and a third miles a day for the year. Put that way it seems easy (hahaha!!) I even log "non running" training just to keep track. Anyways, if you haven't checked it out, give it a try or maybe even set your goal for 1001 miles (Just to motivate Katy!!).
