|I'm looking for some software that I could use to maintain a training log. Is anyone aware of anything out there?|

|I don't know of any training log software other than what came with my Polar HRM.
www.trainingbible.com offers a free online training log. They allow access to almost the entire site for 1 week. After that the log is free but you'd have to pay to continue using the advanced features.
Don't overlook the obvious. Microsoft Excel is a great program to create your own log. The other day I used it to create a paper log for 2003. But you can certainly set it up to add your weekly/monthly totals and do graphs and stuff.

|I made one and have been using it for several years. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will e-mail you a copy. It tracks dates, mileage, distance, riding time, average speed, maximum speed, average heart rate, maximum heart rate, ride intensity, wind speed, temperature, etc. and does the totaling and averaging for you.|

I made one and have been using it for several years. You can download it for free at:
Scroll down and follow the directions and you can download the 2002 (same for 2003) Training Log. It tracks dates, mileage, distance, riding time, average speed, maximum speed, average heart rate, maximum heart rate, ride intensity, wind speed, temperature, etc. and does the totaling and averaging for you.

|There are lots of freeware ones: CyclistsLog, Pilotraining, TrainTrack are a few (google them to find links).
However, I prefer and use Athlete's Diary, from Stevens Creek Software. You can customize it, and it has graphs and various features (search, isolate, etc.) that are useful if you do more than one sport and/or run several bikes. If your a Palm user, there's a version for it, too.
According to their website, both Frankie Andreu and George Hincapie are users. Go here for more:
You can download a trial copy.

|Buy it for 79 cents, don't have to boot it up, doesn't use any power and you can access the data instantly. What could be better?|

|Right about the first of the year, there were a few sites posted here with some excel spreadsheets that you could download. I looked at a few and found one of them to be very good but not perfect for my requirements. It allowed different bikes, ride types, altitude, lenght, time, heartrate, etc to be input and graphed. Check board postings for a few days just before and after the new year. Actually, I think it was just before the new year as I modfied the sheet to fit my needs and I think that was before the 1st.|

|Just open the "File" menu, click "Save as" and save it to your hard drive where you can find it, like in "My Documents".

|I've used this program for years. Very user-configurable, great search capabilities, good support. It's shareware. You can find a copy to try at:

|With the 510 HRM's and up you get their software. Its great for keeping track of all your training + you get hr/speed and optional cadence/power/altitude graphs. What more could you ask for?
