I joined dailymile (here's a link to my profile, add me as a friend!) a few months after I started blogging, which was about 6 months after we started running. It is like the Facebook for athletes, you post your workouts and others can leave comments. You can even share photos.
Do you like my profile picture?
Dailymile isn't the best website out there but if you like to see what other runners and triathletes are doing for workouts this is a great tool. It also allows you to keep track of gear that you use during your workouts. This is a great way to keep track of how many miles your shoes have on them.
Just my running miles
I found out about RunningAhead a little while ago, and since I joined I LOVE it! I am never going to make training plans using Word again.
What the calendar page looks like
RunningAhead isn't as social as dailymile but it has a lot more tools and is more intuitive than dailymile. It keeps track of your exact mileage (not rounding like dailymile does) and you can customize it to keep track of different activities on your summary page.
My Summary page
I haven't really delved that deeply into RunningAhead yet, but I am loving it so far. One thing that is really nice is that you can add up your interval workouts and it will provide the duration, pace and total time. No more adding it up by hand!
My last track workout
Cool Running Pace Calculator
I don't use this often but sometimes I will use it to see what pace I need to run a specific distance at to get the time I want (I did this before pacing Sarah, even though we didn't hit our goal). This is a great tool for new runners to get comfortable with different paces.
We know what's on my mind
McMillan Running Calculator
Compared to the Cool Running calculator, this one is way more advanced. You can use this calculator to "predict" what you should be able to run a specific distance at based on your other race times. (I say predict lightly because if you use your 5K time to predict your marathon time, it isn't going to be that accurate).
My current half PR and goal half time
MapMyRun (or MapMyRide)
This is a great tool! So much easier than mapping out your runs (or rides) on Google Maps. The map will mark each mile and then when you generate the map it will provide an elevation chart.
Our long run a few weeks ago
It will also provide turn by turn directions while you are generating the map, which can be helpful for people like us who write out routes. Mike and I use this for running and biking.
Do you use any of these tools? What are some others that I didn't mention?
