During the last few weeks we've added quite a few "predicted times" to the site.
For example, you can now:
- use our running race time predictor to estimate race performances across different distances, given inputs like your age, your gender and a previous race performance
- use out triathlon race time predictor to estimate triathlon race performance from input statistics likes some swim, bike, and run times, and some guesses about the hilliness of the courses.
To achieve this new functionality we've used 5 prediction techniques:
- V02 Max
For the rest of this post, I'll try to offer an explanation of how we've worked out some of those predictions. For further information I highly recommend runningforfitness.org
who've assisted us with information and content for this part of our site. Indeed, I'll even be relying on some of their explanatory content for parts of this blog post.
