This is a series of calculators that can be found as a part of the RunCoach program. Descriptions are as follows
Body Mass Index: This provides a correct height for weight index. This particular measure is used by the US government (NIH) to generate obesity statistics. It has been modified here to provide some guidance for running weights.
Basic Prediction: This calculator provides an indication of a performance at one distance based on a result from another. This is quite an advanced system using three integrated models. It provides reasonable accuracy right through the range from 100m sprints through to 6 day Ultra's.
Advanced Prediction: This improves on the basic prediction by taking into account other factors. This calculator also includes weight, age and time since your performed your base input PB.
Heart Rate Zones: This is a standard heart rate zone calculator. It calculates you pulse rates for a variety of standard runs. The calculator uses both the Karhonen heart rate reserve as well as straight percentages. I have avoided going further and varying the zone based on the distance run as it all gets a bit academic without more information about a runners response to training. (eg lactate threshold)
VO2max: This series of calculators predicts your VO2max without going to a laboratory. There is a walking test, a running test and a couple of calculators which use race results.
PB Analysis: This calculator accepts PB's for up to 10 distances and then analyses your ability. It will give you a relative performance ranking based on a couple of criteria. How well each stacks up against a world championship perfomance and indicate which distances are your forte.
