I know a lot of you already know about and use Daily Mile, but I wanted to do a post on it for those of you who aren't familiar. Basically, it's a site that lets you track your physical activity -- from running to hiking to swimming to rock climbing.
Everything is super organized on a fancy dashboard.
You can track your stats by week, month, and year! (I am a HUGE statistics geek.)
You can ever discover some fun facts about your training. Like you fastest or farthest run of all-time, total number of workouts, and even number of donuts burned.
It's also cool to see how many miles I've run since joining last year. 1,569 -- that's like running from Boston to New Orleans!
Best of all, you can link up with like-minded athletes and get support. This especially helped me when I was dealing with my knee injury. Gotta love a tight-knit online community!
And for all you bloggers out there -- you can get a nifty widget (like the one we have on the bottom of our site) with your latest workouts! I don't know about you, but I find it incredibly motivating.
So, if you haven't yet checked out Daily Mile (I'm on there as neverhomemaker), I definitely recommend you do. I used to track my running the old fashioned way . . . then Facebook had a handy application . . . but now I'm hooked. After I get in my workout, I immediately log it.
I like seeing my progress.
I like seeing patterns in my training.
I like seeing it all added up.
I LOVE getting/receiving support from other athletes.
