Training Log

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!!).

The Training Log is located in "My Profile" after you login to the seeMOMMYrun site. It is quite useful for tracking your progress.

I had to go under "my homepage".

Got it! I never log in, I just go directly to the blog. Maybe I'll have to login from now on..

Just for the record, I set this goal because I "accidentally" ran 750 in 2006. I religiously log my miles (on a site I've used for years) to keep myself motivated and in December of 2006 realized I had run WAY more than I ever would have guessed throughout the year. I'll bet you find the same is true of your running -- yu may really surprise yourself!
