Intermediate Marathon Training Guide

Training Diary

Keeping a record of the training that you have done is best way of reviewing your training and learning what works for you and what doesn't.

Try to keep as detailed a record of what you have done as possible, including what you did, any recorded times you managed, the weather, how you felt about the session, if there were any other factors involved (eg a busy day at work).

It will really help you to see what you have done over time, for example if a particular period of training left you very tired and your performances suffered because you were over training. Equally, you'll be able to see your progress, maybe by seeing the times that you run for specific distances or courses improve over time.

You can record you diary in a number of ways and media:

In a paper diary

On a spreadsheet

By using the Momentum Sports Online Training Diary, which we believe gives you the best way of reviewing your training as you progress, with a number of different reports that can be generated.
