Daily Mile 2010 Year End Report

I log my workouts in various places for a number of different reasons.

- Garmin Connect: This is where I sync my Garmin to so it automatically tracks all my running stats.

- RunningLog.com: Last year we had a challenge at work to see who could run 500 miles. So we used this site to log our miles so we could see everyone’s progress. Sadly, there are only 2 of us who kept up with it…and we still do. Why not, right?

- Buckeye Outdoors: This is what my coach uses to upload my weekly workouts, and what I sync my Garmin to, as well as log the other non-running workouts so he can see my results.

- MyFitnessPal: I just log my calories, so I can see how many “extra” calories I’m allotted for the day.

- Daily Mile: This is my most favorite one. Why? Because it’s a social media site for like-minded people. I’ve met a lot of really interesting people via this site who are incredible athletes that I learn from and mutually support.

But selfishly, I’ve also kept up with logging miles at this site just so I could see my end of year report with stats like this:

{this is swimming, spinning and running miles}

and this...

DM_Summary
DM_Summary

{who knew how many donuts I burned?!?}

and this...

Seems like a lot of maintenance to keep up all these sites, but it honestly doesn’t take more than 10 minutes. As soon as I’m home after a workout, I log everything while its still fresh in my mind. Seeing all this data at the end of the year makes me glad that I kept up with it.

Here's a summary of the entire Daily Mile Community:

Amazing!
