For pretty, you might want to look at the Believe Training Journal. You can find it on Amazon, along with (my favorite) the Runner's World Training Journal (not as pretty but I like the info better). Another one I like and have used is the running journal at Gone For A Run - good information and you can customize the cover. Let me know if you have any questions and good luck!

I haven't gone so far as making a training plan that is hard and fast, because unfortunately, life always throws curveballs. I do start nearly every week with a loosely defined plan to run 5-6 times, to include 1-2 tempo runs, if 2, one is about 33-50% longer than the other, 1 long run that is about 8-9 miles, 1 interval run, and 2-3 easy runs. I also plan on walking 1-2 miles with my pups and my wife (who has her own set of goals, but with whom I try to run with on one of my easy days per week), to cool down. I find that I burn many more calories if I take the time to walk a mile or two after my run, than if I do a walk in the evening instead (I run in the morning). If I walk when I'm already cooled down, my heartrate doesn't elevate enough, even when walking pretty briskly, to give much cardio or calorie burn benefit.

Hi! I'm back at running and getting more serious. So far I've been making my running plans in my everyday agenda, scheduling in the time and distance I hope to go.....and I have a table I print out for the month with run, weights, yoga columns .... I tape this to the wall and colour in the box when I complete the workout. It's nice to have it out where I can see it to remind me to get all the boxes coloured in.

But I might like to change it up. I see training logs that have more information like min and max heart rate, distance, mood etc etc. I might switch to that more detailed training log but I haven't found one that's pretty enough yet!

If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!
