# Pacing....

equivalent pacing.

Just trying to work out a training session for a group of people and I was wondering what the difference in pace there might be at different length runs. For example... if an athlete is a 50 min 10k runner then on a 400 m track he/she will run 2 laps (800 m) in 4 minutes.
therefore how fast can I expect this person to run 800 m at 5k pace...3k pace...1k pace.

800M
10K PACE = 4 MINUTES
5K PACE = ? MINS
3K PACE = ? MINS
1K PACE = ? MINS.

Any information on this gratefully recieved
Hopefully the above makes sense
Thanks

Put their 10k time into the race predictor calculator (on this site), work out the equivalent time for 5k, 3k, 1k. Then divide by the right 800m multiple.

For a 50min 10k you get the following times:

5k: 23:58 = 3 mins 50sec for 800m
3k: 13:57 = 3 mins 43sec for 800m
1k: 4:21 = 3mins 28sec for 800m

The <a herf="http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/Running%20University/Article%201/calculator2.htm">McMillan<a/> calculator gives suggested times for different length intervals based on race times.
