    Not sure if we have enough interested runners here for this.

    I've been part of other running sites and it's been a great motivator to log daily mileage online with other runners. You can post as much detail as you like (distance, pace, conditions, time of day, how it felt, etc.) or keep it to a minimum. Everyone is welcome, from the most committed marathoner -----26mileman icon_wink.gif ---- to the guy who has just started walking with aspirations for his first 5K.

    It's really simple: someone (anyone) starts a thread with the date in the subject line and posts his workout. Others follow suit and encouragement is doled out all around.

    Personally, I'm running less-than-satisfactorily these days and trying to regain speed and endurance. I'll humbly start the first thread tonight (separate from this), as I just returned from my run.

    Sure I will! Training for Cascade Lakes Relay, so it's good to log my runs...

    Good man. icon_smile.gif

    I just posted the first thread in this forum. If you had a workout today, feel free to add it to the log.

    BTW, great race times on your link. You may be the inspiration for me to regain some traction!

    There are also other places online that are better set up for this, like http://www.dailymile.com

    Or having a Nike+ sensor and an iPod helps keep track as well, that's what I use, they can be glitchy at times but the majority of it, it's great!

    9.7 km yesterday.
    basically one long climb ending in a 20% hill .. then back down , great for working on stride.

    i'm in a rut in my 5k timings so i need to increase stride or cadence or both.
    implying i need more power. I've been stuck at an average of 3min55 / km in my last 2 races and i need to bring it down to 3min50
    ... sounds like nothing right ? well, it's hell !
