How to Use a TRAINING LOG – track your running mileage

Hi, I’m Marc Pelerin. The owner of TrainwtihMarc.com. I’m here to show you how to use your 2017
training log. So we’re back and we’re looking at our training
log. On the left you can see all of the miles you’ve
run per month and the cross training you’ve done per month. At the bottom are the totals. Here are a collection of your run totals and
here’s your mileage history for the year. On the right, you can see where it tracks
your shoes’ mileage. And you’ll see later when we get into the
monthly calendars how that exactly works. So now we’re on the training calendar page
and this is where I type in exactly what it is that you’re supposed to do for the day. And you can see, here are a few examples of
training plans that I’ve created for runners focusing on their goals and what they are
trying to achieve. On your racing page, at the top it has your
PRs that you’ve already set and on the bottom you’ll see it’s your racing calendar. The races you have planned and what your goals
(time and pace) are. Here is an example of one of your monthly
pages. You can see, you put in your miles, your time
(hours:minutes:seconds) so for example, 26 minutes would look like 0:26:00. It will automatically calculate your pace
based on your time and distance. The type of run you have should go in the
Run Type column (easy, LR, race, workout, etc). On the mileage page, if you put in whatever
shoe corresponds with that number, then it’ll track your miles for that pair of shoes. Cross training works much the same as time
of run (hours:minutes:seconds). And then you’ll put in how you felt, where
you ran, etc for that given run. If you scroll to the bottom, you’ll see your month in a
calendar view. Here’s your miles per week. Your miles per month. Cross training details. Number of runs in the month. And the average run distance for the month.OK,
that’s a recap on how to use your training log. If you still have questions, email me.
