Include a Running Log in Your PHR
Thursday, April 01, 2010 | Sarah Dietze
 

Whether you’re training for a race or want to increase your run time or distance, include a running log in your PHR. Share it with your doctor to give him or her a more complete picture of your health and fitness level.

According to LifeMojo, a running log can be kept on paper or on a spreadsheet. Depending on your fitness goals, you might want to include the following:

- Distance
- Length of the run
- Your route
- Heart rate
- Warm-up/cool-down exercises
- What you ate pre- and post-workout
- Observations on how you feel the run went or your progress

Set goals and use your running log/PHR as a motivational tool, but be sure to keep your doctor informed about your workout regimen.
