RW reviews of New Balance shoes, and New Balance contact details
we use only km for ours officials races . for exemple my time during a training is 5 mins/Km . when i compare with you i know about the difference and tell to my friend abroad 8mins/mile . but mileage or km ....our nightmare we call it number 36 (22,5 mile) .
good run everyone

I I therefore propose that we should use furlongs for distance, fortnights for time,
I just came home and realised that I no longer know how fast I am running becuase it's all in km's and I am used to working in miles from the UK.
I now just gamble all over the road and hope for the best
Not much changes in 7 years then huh?
That completely depends on where you are in world
Here in South Africa, it's a gamble to be on the road at all!
whatever happened to decimal time. 10 hours a day with 100 minutes with 100 seconds
hi marshallini (how are you?)
my opinion....fat buddha
it doesn't matter kms or miles you learn quickly
nice week end
good run everyone
I'm a geek as well then, one reason I haven't got a garmin is it might take the fun out of that part of racing.
hi marshallini i thought to be in your black list. (i'm happy no )
good morning to you . (excuse-me for my misteake )
if i run miles (for exp) my watch can help me to calculate kms (my case) but ....if is my watch broken there is a problem...some good advice... but like Shley told above during a race kms or miles is not a problem iis secondary n your mind important is to have fuel to arrive at finish.
I can't work pace in kms at all- yes I can convert 5miles into 8kms (and multiples of) but that's it!!
Soooo if I usually run 10 min mileswhat is that per KM ?
Camlo, since a km is about 5/8 mile you will run a km in about 5/8 of the time it takes to run a mile.
If you are doing 10 min miles then that is 10 times 5/8 min kilometres. Thats 50/8 mins per km. Since there are 60 seconds in a minute, that's 50*60/8 seconds per km. Which works out at 3000/8 or 375 seconds.
375 seconds is 6 minutes 15 seconds.
Next week we move on to trigonometry. Please bring your rulers and protractors.
might be simpler just to divide by 1.6 (approx 1.6km to a mile):
10/1.6 = 6.25 minutes
then convert the decimal to seconds (0.25 * 60 seconds = 15secs)
so thats 6m 15 secs
or to convert km to miles multiply by 1.6
I'm another calculator whilst running. (though usually only on the treadmill cos you've gotta do something to keep yourself occupied!) I was most put out to discover that if I looked at teh display the tredmill did these calculations for me though.
one mile is 1604 metres.
Living in Germany I can't deal with miles any more, I agree with Swiss Bobby, running the FLM it seems to take ages longer to reach the next marker. Well, it is 604 metres further than 1km, or 1.5 times round a running track, unless your local track is 400 yards instead of metres.......shall I stop now? And I deffo can't relate to peeps talking about swimming laps in a 33 yard pool! Our local ones are all 50 metres.
1609.344 metres, actually. Unless you are talking about the US Survey mile, which is 1,609.347219 metres.
The Meile was a traditional unit in German speaking countries, much longer than a western European mile. It was 24,000 German feet; the SI equivalent was 7586 meters in Austria or 7532.5 meters in northern Germany. There was a version known as the geographische Meile which was 4 Admiralty nautical miles, 7,412.7 meters, or 1/15 degree
And they still do have certain races using that trad unit in Germany. The Heddesheimer Meile is 7.7km. I think there's another in Karlsruhe, certainly there's a Badischer Meile.
My head hurts! I dropped math in the 3rd year of grammar school.
