The Believe Logbook offers an open, customizable design that helps runners focus, plan, record, and ready themselves. This Logbook includes just the essentials: an undated annual calendar and undated daily and weekly running logs for up to 6 months of running.
Professional runners Lauren Fleshman and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas have spent nearly a decade refining their popular Believe Training Journal into the best old-school training log for new-school runners. Now in their new Believe Logbook, Lauren and Ro offer a minimalist workout diary that is the perfect tool to prepare for a specific race or event that is 3-6 months away. You’ll spell out your goals, plot your path, and then start chipping away.
How you fill your Believe Logbook is up to you:
· Log your time or distance.
· Record the course conditions.
· Observe how the workout felt.
· Note crosstraining and recovery work.
· Consider how running fits into your life.
· Track your gear usage.
· Plan races and review them.
· Reflect on your goals and season.
Taking as little as one minute each day to thoughtfully engage with your training can transform you. Just by putting pen to paper, you will find new momentum to power each workout. Day by day, you will unlock insights into your running and create a physical object that holds your physical efforts. Your Believe Logbook will become a snapshot, a goldmine, and a story of how running is woven into your life.
