Perfect Gift Aug 2, 2008
I gave this gift to a friend who is preparing for a Triathalon and she swears by it! She says that it has been a great tool for her training program.
Prefer the older edition Jul 9, 2008
I used the prior edition/version of the 'Triathlete's Training Diary' for 2 years and, after beginning this version I found that I don't care for it nearly as much. I like the areas of consistency (boxes for sleep, fatigue, stress, soreness, resting HR and weight) and the fact that there is space for 2 daily workouts, but that is about all. I do not like the fact that distance and time are hidden down below 'planned workout' (these were near the top of the entry in the older version). The last version had both time (duration) and time (of day), this one has just a place for time (which is it? I'm guessing duration) and I think time of day is important, especially when you may have 12 hrs rather than 24 hrs between workouts. I don't need two lines for 'planned workout,' I indicate this (often in pencil) in my week's goals or as a small note to the side - what I am entering instead in the log is my actual workout. (I guess I could just cross out the word 'planned'). What do you do if you don't do as 'planned? (Cross it out? Write comments in the 'notes' section?) I miss having the weather space (I refer back to prior years' weather, especially in the spring; and a windy day can really impact your bike avg speed). I realize that I can fill a lot of this in the 'notes' section but I'm not looking to read a narrative when I glance back to review my old logs. I don't really care about the 'nutrition' section which I used to put in with my notes when I felt it was relevant (which isn't every day as far as I am concerned). Bottom line, I like having what I see as the critical info near the top of the entry (how long and how far) and, for me, next in importance is how fast (pace; MPH; splits; etc.). I have been searching the web for copies of the old edition and if I can find them I will buy them up. I do not plan to continue using this version.
Comprehensive and just the right amt of space... Feb 14, 2008
I looked at several tri diaries and found this one had the best space and format for keeping track. I use it daily and love it!
Keeping up... Jan 18, 2008
This training journal is a great way to keep up with the different workouts for any multisport athlete or anyone who prefers to cross train on a regular basis. There is enough room for each workout (up to 2 per day) and an improvement upon the last edition is the increased space alloted for general notes and a new nutrition section. This training journal is an invaluable tool for my training.
Better choice, even for Road Cyclists Dec 12, 2007
I'm a runner and cyclist, but I primarily ride. I had the Cyclist Diary in one hand and this one in the other.
They are both by the same author, and they are pretty much the same, except the Triathlete's Diary offers you 2 exercise log sections vs. only one in the cycling.
Even if you are a cyclist only, I recommend this one for that reason (2 rides a day or weight training). Other than that, its the same..at the same price.
Different areas of the book include:
Diary (80% of the book) Section to write down bike measurements (Road and MNT) Grid paper for Test Results Blank Tables for data entry (ie Best Routes info) Extra PULL OUT Chart section with Weekly Training Hour and a 12 month calender (blank to enter data in)
