Hi all, to some i'm sure this is a silly question but what is the difference between average speed and average pace, i thought they would be the same but the different readings on my garmin say otherwise.

They are the same thing.

Theoretically they could be expressed differently as in miles per hour or minutes per mile but that's not likely in running.

Speed is usually how many miles/km you will travel in an hour.

Pace is how many minutes it takes you to run a km/mile.

It's just a different way of expressing how fast you are going.

Speed 10km/hr - Pace 6mins/km
