My Running Journal (Day 5 #writeandrun31)

Anyone have a hard time finding the “perfect” running journal? I’ve been through something like 10-12 different journals/logs and I always end up either not using them at all, or scribbling down a few days worth of entries before deciding that I just don’t like it.

I do log all my mileage on the computer (in an Excel sheet), but there’s just something about having a “hard copy” that appeals to me. And I finally found a running journal that has everything I was looking for, including being just the right size, and attractive :)

I ordered this from They have several different designs and you can even have them personalized, but I opted for one of the generic designs (i.e., cheaper) since I was afraid this would be another “dud.” Now that I see how awesome it is, I’ll definitely be ordering another one, personalized :)

It has goal pages, race pages, a section for notes, and more. Here are some of the inner pages:

Most of the pages are for logging your runs.

So if you’re looking for a new running journal, I highly recommend one of these!

Today’s run was Week 7 Day 1 of the 10k trainer app from Zen Labs. 5 minute warm up, run for 25 minutes, and 5 minute cool down. I ran 3.5 miles in just under the 35 minutes.

And this morning’s weigh in was 116.8.

Ciao for now :)
