    Making available some type of "journal" would be a good idea. One that had places and maybe even a place to transcribe in the results of the final vet in and for inclusing of commnents from ride vets so a new - or maybe not so new - rider could have a record to see his progress.

    When I started I kept one - a loose leaf binder where I kept records on all my training rides: temp, humidity, speed, heart rate at 5 minutes and 10 minutes, etc. It really helped this new rider.

    The endurance riders journal that has been published by various people over
    the years was kind of in that vein. A place to record your efforts over the
    year and to organize your training and competition information.
    Maybe AERC should consider including such a riders journal in the new
    members packet (or even as  a regular membership publication). It might, as
    you point out, help new riders become familiar with training regemes and how
    to plan their season. I think you're correct that over time, such tools may
    be less important to more experienced riders - tho some very experience
    competitors do keep log books I think.
    For new members, it would be great to review the training schedules and
    notes of other riders as well. Sounds like a collaborative log book thing.
