New to runningahead.com. Also new to running. Under the Run info sec of entering a new run. There is easy, interval, Etc. I want to enter my runs corectly. So I am running indoors on bad weather day and in my neighborhood on good weather. Should I be putting Easy on all them. I noticed other logs had different descriptions. That weren't on my page. Thank you this is a great site.

lew1043, There really is no right or wrong way to use the log. If it makes sense to you, then keep on doing it. Here's how I log my runs. The run types describe your runs. Here's how I use the types: Easy - an easy run, mostly for the sake of running. I lump warmups and cooldown into easy as well, but other people create separate types for those. Hill - they are runs done on hills, typically as repeats similar to intervals Intervals - an interval workout, such as 10x400m, or mile repeats Long - a run long, usually much longer than my easy run. For example, my easy runs are around 5-10 miles, anything longer than that is considered long. Tempo - a fast paced run, it's somewhat hard, but not near race pace Fartlek - some kind of weird Swedish running thing that I don't do Race - I only use this for races The type of run is independent of weather or location. I use courses to describe location. For example, you can have courses like "Loop around the neighborhood', or "Treadmill". To log "running indoors on bad weather day", I would set the run type (i.e. easy, tempo), create a course named treadmill (or indoor track), leave the weather entries empty because I'm indoors. For "in my neighborhood on good weather", I would set the run type, use a course named "my neighborhood", check the sunny checkbox. Let me know if you want more clarification. Maybe other people can chime in on how they use the log. eric
