I'm keeping a training log this year. I wrote nothing but a zero for each of the days this week (Monday - Thursday). Tomorrow will be different.
Plus I get "paid" $1 for every 10 minutes I run (as an incentive). I use that money to help pay entrance fees and for equipment. I log the miles and time and then when I want to buy sometime I use that "money" so it doesn't need to come out of the regular budget.
