For anyone interested, I've made an easy online calculator to calculate percentages of pace. You can choose which of the two methods mentioned (division and multiplication) to use. You can find the calculator at http://tinyurl.com/trainingpace. I hope it's useful to other runners as well!Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-655615381194721421.post-46004563168607104382015-01-31T09:34:57.635-06:002015-01-31T09:34:57.635-06:00Thank-you so much!

I'm an 8 min per mile race pace runner in 5k and half-marathon, so using division method is 70%=685seconds, and 80%=600 secondsAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-655615381194721421.post-4228455075945560762013-05-17T11:11:57.321-05:002013-05-17T11:11:57.321-05:00Thanks for spotting that!

Just one minor quibble. In the key you state "P = Percentage, in numeric form (i.e. 85, not 0.85)" But I think that for the division method P would have to be expressed in decimal form, no?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-655615381194721421.post-31711295084803551532013-02-14T10:46:55.830-06:002013-02-14T10:46:55.830-06:00Thanks for catching that!
