Running calculators. ~TJ76

Race pace and event time estimates.

A lot of clever folk have crunched lots of number and created lots of online calculators.

One of the bad things is that if you enter  your one mile time it will  predict your marathon time. Now before you all fall about laughing the maths does not know if you are capable of running 26.2 miles.

BUT if you could, the numbers are there for you to look at.

So the 2 mile time is double the one mile plus a bit.

The accuracy of the predictions is better the closer the distance. So an accurate 5 mile time will give you a good idea of your 10k time. Now I have done 3 marathons none anywhere close to my predicted times (not enough training) but from one mile to 30k (marathon is 42k) the predicted times were very close.

It is a pretty big topic but if anyone has any questions I will try to answer them.
Some example links coming soon too. I will update this post.
