Sometime in early 2011 Buckeye Outdoors, the website I had been using to log my workouts, crashed. When I say crashed, it crashed big. All of my workouts were gone forever. The website was down for a while, they offered some hope that the workouts might be recovered but it never happened. Kind of a downer because I like to look back and see what I have done and how I have improved. I picked up the shattered pieces of my training log and moved on to what turned out to be a better place. A place with friends, interaction and doughnut tracking. Really.
After the great Buckeye Outdoors crash of 2011, I turned to a couple of places to log my entries. (I am creating redundancy in fear of another website crash.) I currently use Beginner Triathlete and Daily Mile. I like to see my workouts in a calendar format so one point for Beginner Triathlete there. They also have some pretty great forums full of helpful people.
Daily Mile, on the other hand, is like facebook for athlete types. The comments and virtual high fives on your workouts, never gets old. I also like the stats on DM.
After I started logging in March of last year, I managed to log 3173 miles of swimming, biking and running which, according to DM, equals 231.65 televisions powered, 1271 doughnuts or 67 pounds burned. Crazy.
If you aren’t on Daily Mile, look me up. We can be friends. I promise to support you with unlimited virtual high fives. :)
