>Racing>Incredible new Race reports & "On The Run" Pacing wristband
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
I like the concept of the wristband, but I don't see how someone without a Garmin or other GPS is going to make better use of this than they would a regular wristband (which you also offer). Thanks for letting us know about this.
I am confused by your comment. This wristband is to help you determine how much you can slow down if your ahead of pace..or how much to speed up if your behind. You do not need a Garmin or GPS.
Look at the example --> http://endorphinreport.com/Tools/WristbandOnTheRunExplained.aspx
Wristband - "On the Run" Explained
This wristband is slightly wider to accommodate the three extra columns:
15 Second | 30 Second | 60 Second
During your marathon your pace will fluctuate throughout the race due to a variety of reasons (hills, downhills, crowded early miles, nervousness, water stops, endorphins kickin, etc...)...the last thing you want to do is PANIC. The "ON THE RUN" adjusted PPM calc is a fast, simple, accurate way to determine what your future PPM needs to be for you to still achieve your GOAL TIME
SEE CHART on SITE
How to use:
At any distance along the route, compare your REAL time versus your GOAL PACE. Take this difference and use the wristband to see what your adjusted PPM is:
>> The 1st column is based on 15 seconds off goal pace
>> The second column is based on 30 seconds off goal pace
>> The last column is based on 60 seconds off goal pace.
On a Goal Time of 3:00:00 (refer to image above), if you cross the HALF MARATHON distance in 1:28:30, you are 1 minute and 30 seconds under pace.
Looking at the wristband you can determine your per mile pace difference to still get to your goal time:
4.6 (60 sec value)
2.3 (30 sec value)
6.9 seconds per mile
This means that you can run 6.9 seconds slower per mile and still reach your goal pace.
On a Goal Time of 3:00:00 (refer to image above), if you cross the 15 Mile distance in 1:45:15, you are 2 minutes and 16 seconds over pace.
Looking at the wristband you can determine your per mile pace difference behind your goal:
2 x 5.3=10.6 (2x60 sec value)
1.3 (15 sec value)
11.9 seconds per mile
This means that you need to run 11.9 seconds faster per mile than goal pace to still reach your goal.
I apologize for a delayed response. I am still whacking my brain on how to respond to it. I understand the desire to advertise on the site. After all, this is just another place where runners gather. I'm not against advertisement. Not all ads are bad if they are done tastefully and may be of interest to the users. This site is devoid of ads because I find more interest in creating running related features than to actually work on putting up ads.
Allow me to be selfish for a moment. I feel that if I allow advertisements on here, then maybe my site should benefit from these ads. I don't think it's fair that I'm struggling to keep it ad free and to have someone else reap the benefits.
That said, there was precedence with regards to the ads. Users have made posts on sales and products endorsements. I allowed them because the users were just happy customers. They have no financial gains with the products they endorse.
Run Hard: I remember you creating this account from a long time ago, which was why I wasn't sure if you were advertising or endorsing. Thank you for the disclosure of your interests.
To all potential advertisers: please send me an email. It's not an approval process per se. I just want to keep these posts relevant to the users, because they are the ones I care about. Without the email, I reserve the right to remove advertisements that I deem inappropriate.
