Track Workouts Using the Training Log

Athletic.net offers athletes a full suite of training tools in the Training Log. Athletes can track and plan workouts, participate in challenges, view and compare workout statistics, receive assigned workouts from coaches, and share workouts with others.

Getting Started

In order to use the Training Log, you'll need to have an athlete attached to your profile. The best method to do so is to claim your athlete bio so that your existing meet results are tied to your Training Log. See Claim Your Athlete Bio for more information. If you don't have any existing results on Athletic.net, see Adding an Athlete to Your Profile.

Once you've claimed your athlete bio or added an athlete to your profile, you can view the athlete on your Dashboard. Click on your initials or picture in the top right corner, and then click  Dashboard.

Once you're on your dashboard, you'll see all athletes associated with your login. Next to it you'll see a Training Log summary. At the bottom, click Log a workout to be taken to your training log.

You'll be asked to answer a few brief questions about how you'd like your Training Log to work. First, you'll be asked who should be able to view your training log. You have the following choices:

  • Public: Anybody viewing your bio page will be able to see your Training Log
  • Team: Only your coaches and teammates will be able to see your Training Log
  • Private: Only your team coaches will be able to see your Training Log

You'll also need to select whether you want distances displayed in miles or kilometers. Once you're done, click Start Logging to begin using the Training Log.

Logging a Workout

To enter a competed workout, click Log a workout.

You'll be prompted to enter details for the workout:

  1. Name: Give your workout a name (required field)
  2. Date: Select the date that your workout took place (required field)
  3. Description: Describe what the workout looks like (optional)
  4. Activity: Select and describe what you did in your workout. You can choose from a number of different activities using the dropdown arrow next to the activity type, including running, swimming, biking, weights, or you can describe your own. Enter the distance and time (if applicable). If you're doing interval training, you can use the Add Intervals button to add intervals of different distances to the workout.
  5. Add an Activity: You can use this button to add a second activity to the same workout.
  6. Notes: The notes field allows you to enter observations about how the workout went.
  7. Visibility: If you made your Training Log viewable to the public or to teammates, you can use this menu to change who can see this particular workout.

When you're done, click Save.

You'll see your workout on the log!

Planning a Workout

You can also add future planned workouts to your calendar in much the same way that you enter a past workout. Click the Plan a workout button and enter the details of your planned workout, as described above. Entering dates in the future will order the log chronologically, or you can also use the Calendar View.

Once the date of the workout arrives, the workout will be shown with a question mark next to it.

If your coach assigns you a workout, it will be shown as a planned workout. Make sure you mark it as completed so your coach knows!

Sync Your Workouts with a Fitness Device

The Training Log interfaces with a number of popular fitness devices from Garmin, Strava, and Fitbit and will automatically retrieve workout data from these devices. To connect your device to the Training Log, click  Settings above the workout list.

From the Settings screen, click on the manufacturer of your fitness device. You'll be taken to the manufacturer's website, where you'll be asked to log in and confirm that you want to share your workout data with Athletic.net.
