Lauren Fleshman and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas have spent nearly a decade refining their popular Believe Training Journal into the best old-school training log for new-school runners. Now their new Believe Logbook offers a minimalist workout diary that is the perfect tool to prepare for a specific race or event that is 3-6 months away. With your Believe Logbook in hand, you will set goals, plot a path, and then start chipping away.

How you fill your Believe Logbook is up to you. You can log time or distance, record course conditions, observe how the workout felt, note crosstraining and recovery work, consider how running fits into your schedule, track gear usage, plan and review races, and reflect on goals and the season.

Taking as little as one minute each day to thoughtfully engage with your training can transform you. Just by putting pen to paper, you will find new momentum to power each workout. Day by day, you will unlock insights into you and create a physical object that holds your physical efforts. Your Believe Logbook will become a snapshot, a goldmine, and a story of how running is woven into your life.
