Let {Xn;n1} be a sequence of independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) random variables and denote Sn=k=1nXk, Mn=max1knXk. In this paper, we investigate the almost sure central limit theorem in the joint version for the maxima and sums. If for some numerical sequences (an>0), (bn) we have (Mn-bn)/an𝒟G for a nondegenerate distribution G, and f(x,y) is a bounded Lipschitz 1 function, then limn(1/Dn)k=1ndkf(Sk/k,(Mk-bk)/ak)=-f(x,y)Φ(dx)G(dy) almost surely, where Φ(x) stands for the standard normal distribution function, Dn=k=1ndk ,and dk=(exp((logk)α))/k, 0α<1/2.
