A way to see non-race personal bests? (Read 452 times)

    Yea, maybe its just me being used a different site and wanting to migrate everything here. I understand the more seasoned runners probably would not have a need for it. I can live with it either way, I will just have to make sure I do the occasional time trial and mark it as a race from time to time.

     

    Just do what Mikey says in the post on the previous page! Smile

      Wouldn't this also make all of your "PR" for a certain distance come from a slightly longer run? Basically this function gives you a flying start for each distance.

       

      Although, I guess if you're not interested in racing and are running for fitness then how you come off the line and get up to speed is irreverent and steady-state running becomes the more important factor.

       

      I probably wouldn't use it, but it is an interesting idea for a new function.

        Thats what I meant, but I have to make sure I run exact distances first. I cant right now as I never just run 5KM, if I am trying to beat a previous 5KM time I would run 1KM to start then the 5km then the last km to kind of cool off. I would keep my watch running the entire time as I knew the other site would pick the best 5km from that time. Right now on this site I would only see the 7KM time.

         

        Anyhow, thanks everyone for the replies! Smile

           No lap function on your watch ?

            Yes, I have each lap set to 1KM. But it would count a 7km run as 7 laps. I can manually figure it out easy enough, thats not the issue.

              I was actually thinking jog warm-up, press lap, run 5KM, press lap, cool-down, press stop.  Your workout then has three separate pace sections.

               

              Your idea may have merit, I'm not trying to talk you out of it....not my intent....just pondering.

                I used to just be chicken until I met Bash and BadDawg at the Saturday Porter Square run, they showed me the hills in Arlington Heights...those are enough to turn anyone angry Smile
