A Few Good Books at J&A

The Triathlete's Training Diary & The Cyclist's Training Diary

Whatever your goals are as an athlete, you need a place to record your workouts & a place to record how your body responds to training from day to day. These diaries can be used to:

(1) Monitor daily vital signs - sleep, fatigue, stress, and soreness to protect against over training.

(2) Plan a full calendar year of training and racing on a fold-out spread.

(3) Record every detail of each cycling, cross training, or strength workout, with space for weekly and monthly summaries.

(4) Highlight your accomplishments by tracking race results.
