Does anybody know of a training log program? I'd like to advance beyond the old notebook and pen, something that would keep bar graphs and stuff like that would be really cool.
ever hear of Excel?oy

I have a log set up in Excel, and it works great. You can make them as simple or complex as you want, and they are easy to change.

I have graphs set up to show progress in certain areas, it really helps to see the information in that format.

I have been using TrainingBase for about six years. Easy to use, not limited to cycling, pretty good displays and graphs, totals, search functions, etc.

You can try it for free unitl you hit 50 entries.

You can get it at

Hmm, just looks like an Access Database, even uses the same extension. If you have any Access skills, you could whip that up in a hour. If not, then this is only $10.

I'd go with Access or this if I was at all organized, but Excel would work well, too, but be more limited.

I used a paper log for about 9 months and then I switched to using the software for the Polar HRM units. It could improve in some ways, but it is quite impressive with regard to the analysis of workouts. One area where it fails to impress me is its inability to help compare and analyze a given workout over time. I'm currently working on "massaging" the data so I can do this in an external application.

This is a nice shareware program that I've used for several years. Its loaded with practical features, updated frequently and relatively cheap ($30). I like to ability to define and export text reports and just about any data field. Try it out at:
