Charting Effort

  1. ejschro says:

    A feature I'd like to see added is something I've developed for my own running log that I describe as 'effort.' Basically, I take my best times for a 5K, 10K, and half-marathon, and create an equation that describes my max effort curve. Then, based on my pace and distance, I can find out how close to my max effort each run was, and project 5K/10K/13.1 times based on that run. I normalize the data on a scale from 0 to 1. This lets me make sure I don't do too many hard runs close to each other, or too many easy runs.
    So, the feature would require a little user input, but it would make me (and maybe other analytical types like me) more likely to use this site for my log.
