Hey guys & happy Tuesday! Hopefully you are all slowly easing out of the candy coma and feeling back to normal and crushing your workouts!
Today I have one of my favorite giveaways, and it’s not even food or clothing related! This is for any athlete, and yes, if you workout you are an athlete. If you lift weights, do CrossFit, or run, then this workout is for you!
I introduce to you Journal Menu! When I used to CrossFit regularly, I had a log book that I used to track all of me workouts, lifts, and progress. I loved it, and now that I’m focusing more on running and lifting at a regular gym, I haven’t been tracking any of my workouts. So when Erica of Journal Menu reached out and asked if I would review the book geared towards runners, I was all in. Seriously, so excited for this. Even cooler, you get to customize the front and back cover!
Erica gave me cover ideas to use, but said if I found an image of my own that I wanted to use, I could. I wanted one that would motivate me, so I chose an image of a running path that I took when I was spending time in southern California years ago, and found a quote that would motivate me to get out the door.
Journaling improves your memory, your consistency and your outlook on life, because you can go back and review why it’s all going so great, or figure out what’s been going wrong.
The journal starts with pages for you to write your goals, how you will achieve them, body measurements, and mobility exercises to strengthen your body. It then gets into race planning and tracking your races. What a great idea!
And then what I’m most interested in, the different training programs for races. 5k, 1/2 marathon and full marathon training programs are all in here.
The program provides you with the proper workouts/runs, along with a page right next to it to track your training! I am so using this once my 1/2 marathon training begins!
After the goal pages, measurement pages, and training programs, you get into the meat of the training book. Here is where you get to track all of your runs, or WODs if you choose a journal geared towards CrossFit!
Since starting using my Journal Menu to track my runs, I’ve noticed that I’ve actually improved my runs. From being able to hold a longer tempo run, to increasing my overall speed on miles, this run tracker has only brought me positive workouts.
And now one lucky reader can win a customized training book of their own, whether it’s a running journal or a CrossFit journal, it’s your choice! The giveaway will end Thursday night, and I will announce the winner Friday morning!
