Day 006 - Keeping a training journal

Rest day        Training via ActiveMail

MAKE TODAY A REST DAY: Today is a rest day, so we're going to talk about keeping a training journal. This is a vital habit to get into no matter what form of exercise you enjoy. It's an invaluable record of your program that lets you review what did and didn't work for you during your training. You can keep all sorts of training journals, but you should at least use it to record the following information: target WHRs (50%, 60%, 70%, and 80% of your MHR), resting pulse rate (take it each morning before you get out of bed), scheduled workout for the day, scheduled WHR for the workout, weather conditions, and what you do to cool down. We'll talk more about these items in Week 6 of this training program.
