SportLog  – On-line Training Log

Start using this great on-line training log created by Steffan Lloyd of Nakkertok! Any athlete should log basic training and performance information (e.g. hours of sleep, resting heart rate, time spent in each activity and zone) on a daily basis to track one’s performance from season to season, to monitor one’s health, prevent from overtraining or getting sick and determine how to alter your plan and goals over time. It is very useful to determine by how much you can increase or decrease your training volume and intensity year to year and month to month, according to your goals.

This training log is very simple to use. It’s in a calendar format, it’s intuitive, it can be printed, it can let you create graphs by different variables such as time spent in each training zone or activity and it’s inexpensive. Plus, if you want your coaches to check out your progress, it allows them to access it on-line, view your training and statistics, and provide comments and feedback!

Here’s how to start using SportLog.ca:   Click on the sportlog.ca link and then click on the athlete registration link. Fill in your personal information. Put “XC Chelsea Masters” as your training group and “skiing” as your registration code. You can choose to pay immediately or try it out for two weeks and then pay. The cost is $25 per athlete per year.
