Training Log

Do you keep a training log? 

Even though my coach gives me my workouts via Training Peaks, I prefer to write down all of my workouts in a notebook and then write the results as I do the workouts.  This way I always have a record of where I've been, how far I've come, and where I'm headed.  I have kept a training log/journal since I started running way back in 2001.  It's fun to go back and read the entries and reminisce about how difficult a 5 mile run was at 10:00 pace.  We've come a long way since then.

I did religiously from my start (about 2004) until about 2011 or 2012. After a year or so of using Garmin connect, I pretty much gave up the double entry with the paper log. I kind of wish I'd kept it up as it would be cool to have it all together and it's more of a pain to look up individual workouts on garminconnect to read my comments, splits, etc.
