Author Matt Fitzgerald designed this running-specific training diary to capture all the details that will help runners establish and achieve their training goals and improve their performance over time. Fitzgerald explains the essentials of training and how to plan mileage and workouts from week to week. The diary is complete with pace charts and sample peak training weeks for 5K, 10k, half marathon and marathon events that will streamline and simplify training.
With space to note every aspect of their workout--distance, pace, and intensity to name a few--runners can rate each workout and review their progress toward better fitness and faster times. Runners can also monitor their health and diet through resting heart rate, weight, and a simple breakdown of their daily diet.
Matt Fitzgerald is a prolific health and fitness journalist and author of 12 published and forthcoming books on fitness, nutrition, and weight loss, including Brain Training for Runners and Performance Nutrition for Runners. Fitzgerald is also a featured coach with the online training group Training Peaks, where he creates interactive training plans for runners and triathletes.
