The Run SMART Project Launches Online Running Calculator
The Run SMART Project and legendary coach Jack Daniels have launched the official Jack Daniels’ Running Calculator, a free mobile web application designed to help runners quickly calculate racing and training paces.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Unlike most online running calculators, Jack Daniels’ Running Calculator allows users to factor in wind, temperature and/or altitude to calculate the effect on a race performance or training pace.
Based on the formulas used to calculate Jack’s world-famous VDOT tables in Daniels’ Running Formula—and previously unreleased formulas to factor in wind, temperature and altitude—the calculator offers runners and coaches an amazing app to fine tune and adapt their training based on weather or altitude conditions.
“It’s long overdue to have a mobile web application that takes into account all of the factors that create a race or training experience,” said Run SMART Founder, Brian Rosetti. “These calculations are based on countless scientific studies by Jack who has updated the formulas to help enhance every runners training.”
Jack Daniels’ Running Calculator is very user-friendly: a user provides a distance and pace, or distance and time, and is shown how fast to train for various workout types (easy, threshold, interval, etc.) and what their predicted race performances are for various distances. Users can then factor in weather conditions. For instance, if a person’s goal time for the marathon is 3:40, and they have a workout coming up with a forecast of 84 degrees, they can adjust their training pace accordingly, (e.g. 4 x 1 mile in 7:42 pace, but with 84 degree temps = 4 x 1 mile in 7:58 pace).
