first off, thanks for the great discussion on running in the evening versus the morning. seems like the general consensus is we like to run in the morning. you all have definitely motivated me to try and get my butt out of bed and enjoy a morning run more often. let's also get a "holla" for daylight savings time, though huh? i ran 8 miles last night (in my goal pace!!) and walked the dog afterwards before it was dark. hallelujah.
so my next burning question is how anal are all of you in your record keeping when it comes to your running? since the dawn of my running time, i have faithfully logged every mile, every course, every time, every race. i love being able to see exactly what i've run every week, every month, every year. i know how many miles are on each shoe and when to replace them. i know what goals to set for myself because i can see where i've been. however, it's a little exhausting having to recall and record all of it. do you think it's worth it?
i use a few different ways to keep track of things. nike's training log is fantastic, just due to the fact that is talks with nike+ when i upload runs from my ipod. i also keep a separate excel log that i can manipulate and total. yes, double record keeping i know. but it works for me.
