EDIT 4: I have adjusted the layout and added a section for gear notes and a selecting if you used ERG or level mode. The Numbers version has equations for the intensity and drop downs for selecting the type of workout. I started using this to track which workouts I will be considering for my quest. I only have a PDF and Numbers version. I attempted to convert it to Excel and… will… it was pretty messed up. Thanks Microsoft! I have also added an additional page so if you want to print it, you can do a front/back thing. Suggestions welcome!!! Still working on the rest of the workbook. The idea is turning it into a Quest Book, of sorts, that I can share with anyone on the journey to help them organize and plan. Unless there is something like that already out there Suf Tng Log V3
EDIT 3: I have made a couple more changes. I have added sections to annotate for trainer mode and split the subjective section to allow for notes on gears. Some aesthetic changes were also made. Thanks to @JSampson, Sir Jon, for the suggestions. The link is the most recent version of the spreadsheet. I am still working on the rest of the workbook. Bookmark the thread for the latest updates.
Original Post: I tend to do things and then research. I didn’t go looking for a training log/journal. I’m sure there are a lot out there. I love tracking metrics. I love telemetry. Numbers. Statistics. It’s a fantastic way to see growth and change. Or in this case, a measure of Suffering.
I made a “purpose-built” one to fit my needs. I wanted to share it with everyone. I apologize in advance if I needed permission to use the images; I can remove them if I need to. But it’s free if you want it.
The data tracked in this journal is based on 4DP, both subjective and objective performance, and writing in a good ‘ol diary.
I’m working on an entire logbook with spreadsheets, formulas, charts, calendars, and some other features. This is just a taste. I’m no programmer or spreadsheet expert, but if you have any suggestions, ideas for features, or what you would want in a training log/workbook/journal please let me know. I’m willing to share or incorporate suggestions when possible. If you want a copy not in .jpg, I have a .pdf at the link and Numbers file I can upload.
I am excited to release this so I don’t have an excel file yet, and I cannot attest to the continuity of an excel conversion. But when I “finalize” the file, I want to release the spreadsheet so anyone can type in it, use the drop down menus, and have access to the formulas and tracking. However, I might be overselling it a little bit.
Cheers, and Suffer on.
