Why you should start a running training blog
Here we show you how to keep track of your training with a running blog. We'll tell you what a running blog is, how they work and how you can start your own running blog today.
What is a running blog?
Blogs are online logs or diaries that enable you to record any aspect of your training; your times, routes or training techniques. All this information builds a picture of how your training is progressing as well as pinpointing any areas of weakness. Check out these great running blogs to find out more.
But, if you want to keep your blog straightforward, you can. You can use your blog to record simply how you feel during your sessions; good days, bad days or even the best post-workout treat you have discovered. That is the beauty of the blog – it’s up to you.
Another plus is the boost a blog can give you when your motivation is rock bottom and you need a kick-start to get out and complete a session – as the last thing you want is a gap in your blog showing you skived off.
