Are you a runner or cyclist (or triathlete) that likes to keep a training journal? If so, JournalMenu is something you’ll want to check out. Each journal is custom made just for you. You create the cover, with your own art and inspirational quotes or words. Then, inside are all the tools to make your fitness training life easier. Tools include goals, PRs, milestones, nutrition, benchmarks and much more.
I was able to create a training journal JUST for my dream goal race this year, the NYC Marathon. The folks at JournalMenu were so amazing at showing me proofs of what my journal would look like before they made it. When I got it in my hands, I was extremely impressed. Not only is it awesome having my website logo on it, but there’s a cityscape backdrop symbolizing New York City. Definitely unique, like nothing else out there.
Inside my journal, there’s a section for goals (including the SMART technique informational in how to make goals that are achievable), body measurements, a mobilization quick guide, 5k through marathon training planners, interval training log for my track workouts, race planning and reviews, pace charts, PR recording, and daily/weekly logs for nutrition and run logging. Also, each page has motivational quotes at the top. So many great tools are in this journal!
Now, I do log my workouts online via dailymile, and use my Fitbit app to log my food and such, but I find having something to write in to be a nice additional tool. If I forgot to log something in one place, I can go back and update the other. The writer in me loves having pen in hand. 🙂
I especially like this journal because it’s an original. No one else has one like mine. It’s unique, and there’s something to be said for that. That’s a big reason JournalMenu stands out from other training journals. And, at a cost of $14.99, it’s a great deal for what you get.
The folks at JournalMenu are giving one lucky Girl’s Got Sole reader a free customized journal!
