I have found this website useful for recording your training. Keeping a quality training log will help us track your progress, record the follow information routinely:

Specifics of your main/session (Duration, Intensity, Training Type)
Try to fill out the other information it gives.

Personally, I like to list a few other measures also:

RPE - Out of 10, how hard was the session?
Muscle Soreness - How sore were your muscles out of 10 during the session?
RPR (Rating of Perceived Recovery) - Out of 10, how well did you recover from you last session (ie at the beginning of the current session).


I have found outlining the specifics of your post-exericse recovery in your training log useful as it highlights whether you have dedicated any/enough time to recovery and what it was. For example, you might list as below:


Cold Water Immersion (10C water) - 4 mins
Self Massage - Gluteals & Hamstrings
Stretching - All major muscle groups
