So, for example, my VDOT at peak fitness was between 55 and 56.

He reckons the race times for 56 that are:

Mile: 5:16
5k: 18:05
10k: 37:31
HM: 83:00
M: 2:53:20

I was close to all but the latter at peak fitness (missed 83 at HM due to weather conditions...and my 10k is a *bit* slower, but wasn't at peak when I set that PB).

I've just plugged some data (2013) into a VDOT calculator, and I can just about see that, although I did do some specific 5k training for that 5k time.

If I could convert my current 5k to the suggested marathon time in the Spring, then I'd be pretty happy!

Ha, just looked my T pace based on that VDOT - should be 6:15/mi.

Not sure I could do one mile on its own at that pace at the moment...

Maybe I need to go and do an eyeballs out 5km...

Got something to say?
