Next to running shoes, a training diary is the most important piece of training equipment a runner owns. Whether training for a PR or just staying in shape, runners of all abilities will gain insight into their fitness and performance with "The Runner's Diary" by running coach Matt Fitzgerald. This two-color training diary offers plenty of space for key data like mileage, workout time, pace/splits, heart rate, intensity, aches and pains, notes, and workout enjoyment ratings.

"The Runner's Diary" is much more than a record of past training; it's a tool to help runners improve. Guidelines help runners design their own season-long training plan while Fitzgerald's Target Pace Level and Intensity Factor systems help runners make sure they are on track and gaining fitness from every run. "The Runner's Diary" also includes handy pace charts, weekly tips, and a daily nutrition monitor.

Best of all, "The Runner's Diary" is undated, so runners can pick up a copy whenever their season begins.
