Logging overload

Motivating myself to run can be hard enough, but the subsequent logging malarkey is simply ridiculous.

It started off quite simply.  After each run, I would log onto running free and record my activity.

Then I got a smartphone with a gps app, and I would export the file to myself, download it onto my pc and then import it into running free online.

Then I also joined fetch everyone, so I would export my gpx file, email it to myself, download it onto my pc, import it into running free online and then share it with fetch everyone.

Then I switched to a garmin, so I started uploading my activity to garmin connect, separately importing it into running free online and sharing it with fetch everyone.

Then I got online coaches, so now I upload my activity to garmin connect, separately import it into running free online, share it with fetch everyone and then update my training log.  And then I summarise my weekly activity in a feedback email.

And what does all this tell me?  Goodness only knows.  I don’t have the time to look!
