Ah, didnt realise that IW, makes sense now

I am not bothered about the avge pace, I know I do a lot of slower miles than most as I takeeasy runs very easy and the early part of longer runs easy as well. The way I log my intervals probabl;y doesnt help as I include the recoveries. I know there are some faster things in there as well

Even comparing the tempos etc m ight be hard as some people log juist the tempo part while I usually log one run but which has a tempo section in it - but notalways.

Fetch I have a polar m400... To upload I have to first upload the week to polar then individually download each run from there and upload to fetch. Sorry ain't got time for that when I can train twice a day up to 8 sessions (so 8 downloads and uploads!) including cycling.

So I went and looked up mine. I think the 16 weeks is 1060 miles (including taper), avg pace is 6.67mph which I guess is around 8:50?

Interestingly, avg pace has gone up massively over the course of 16 weeks. That is a more reliable indicator for those targeting a big step change pb I think... Or at least I do until Sunday. If I don't smash it I'll think again ;)

I love how fetch liked his new toy so much he couldn't wait to release it, even if it is just a few days before 100s of Fetchies run VLM and can do absolutely nothing about the training they have/haven't done :)

Around my pace (3:00-3:15ish), I'm surprised by what seems (to me) relatively low mileage - just 42 miles a week average - but the long runs are pretty consistent - 107 in 5LSR and 184 in 10LSR (ooh, that's new!). Guess LSR really is most important run of the week, and average training pace is less important?

"slow old sub-4" surely an oxymoron there 100fRNIB (although you'll notice I haven't disputed the git part :-p)

I guess this is a bug, but for the (new?) Q1-Q4 bit, I can see everyone else's mileage and the median, but not mine?

Wow, I like it. I am surprised that for my best time & target time (sub 3:45/sub 3:30) I've done about half the training miles as most and i've done them faster too, looks like I'd better sort my training out if I want a better marathon time. LSR's are about the same though.
