Playing with a spreadsheet after a full week at work is never a good idea.
(Some people would doubt it as a good idea regardless – we all have our weaknesses!)
With having a 10k race this weekend I’ve been puzzling over my race strategy – or at least the pace I ought to be able to take it. Having looked at the statistics of my last few races (who wants to go out on a Friday night anyway……) I then realised it was meaningless given I didn’t know what pace would give the expected race time.
Hence the spreadsheet.
I figured given I’d worked this out that somebody else might find it useful. I don’t know how accurate these figures are (please feel free to comment!) but given my GPS watch seems to disagree with the measured race length by a wider margin than I’d anticipate, I guess it’s fairly academic.
The first column is the anticipated race time. The second is the minutes per mile (pace) time.
10 Miles distance
You don’t need to tell me I’m sad working this stuff out – I’d guessed that a LONG time ago!
