Do I need to keep a training diary?

Whether you’re an elite athlete or a casual competitor, a training diary is a fantastic tool for many reasons. Not only does it serve as a great source of motivation when looking back at all the workouts that you’ve logged, it also enables you to objectively analyse why you are running well or maybe not so well.

After each run record the distance and/or time completed, how you felt, plus any other relevant details such as the terrain, route and weather.
