From these predictions, I can make a few assumptions:
- Either all the stars were aligned when I ran my 5k PR and have not been able to do anything that great since, or I am not running to my full potential given that PR
- My 10k PR should be faster. This makes sense, since the time I plugged in was from Ragnar and not an actual race. I did not taper for Ragnar, so I can assume if I taper then the time will decrease.
- I think my marathon times are a little ambitious...I have never ran a marathon before and complete my first one in those times would be a near miracle in my mind.
- This is just a computer, giving me feedback, and does not take into account a lot of other running variables, such as weather, preparation, determination, sleep, injury, and so on.
Have you ever put a race time in a running calculator to see what you "should" run for a different distance? Was it accurate?
