Do we really need to keep track of every detail?
Right now my online running log can preserve such details as: location, distance, time, pace, heart rate, which shoe I'm wearing, my weight, weather, and yes - a place for freehand notes.
But how much of our run do we really need to save?
[I have years and years of data saved as an Excel file.]
In Galloway’s book – Half Marathon - You Can Do It, he dedicates a whole chapter on the importance of journaling and keeping all the data about your run.
“The journal becomes the steering wheel that keeps you on the road of positive progress.”I suppose someday I will look back at all those miles and details and recognize running was a big part of my life.
This site even wants you to note your Happiness...
Let’s see now before today’s run about a 3 - after my run a 7.
Pretty good for a Monday.
