Look into bryton cardio 40 60 pace training feature

2. 2. Pace Calculator Before we answer the above questions, we need to demonstrate how to use the Pace Calculator: 1. To update to the latest version of the firmware, select the main menu on the Cardio 40/60 by scrolling down to the last page. You should see the option “Pace Cal.” Press this option to enter into the submenu. 2. To select “Race Time”, enter your most recent race providing both distance and finish time. For instance, let’s try an example by entering a 10K race and 1 hour 10 minutes finish time. 3. The Cardio 40/60 will automatically calculate the corresponding race finish time. The calculation report contains two sections. The first section is “Race time” which calculates the equivalent finish time and average pace of common race distances based on your record. The second category is “Training Pace”. It provides pace recommendations for your training workouts. 2

He recently finished his first marathon. He enters his Personal Best (PB) record of this race and compares it to the results which the Pace Calculator predicted. Distance Personal Best Pace Calculator: 10K/49 minutes 53seconds Finish Time Average Pace Finish Time Average Pace 5K 24m:19s 4:52 min/km 23m:55s 4:47 min/km 10K 49m:53s 4:59 min/km 49m:53s 4:59 min/km Half-marathon 1h:48m:55s 5:10 min/km 1h:50m:04s 5:13 min/km Marathon 4h:51m:18s 6:54 min/km 3h:49m:28s 5:26 min/km As you see from the above table, the prediction of half-marathon is quite accurate. However, there is an hour difference between his finish time and the Pace Calculator prediction time. The reason is this specific race included many uphill roads. In addition, he lacked the needed stamina; therefore, after 30thK, he decided to complete the rest of the race by walking. Generally, Pace Calculator assumes users have sufficient endurance to run in the entire race and assume the course environment is constant. Now that we have covered the basic concepts of Pace Calculator, we can move on and answer the runners’ question. The 1st runner has a current pace of 10K/1hr15mins. Can she finish her first half-marathon within 3 hours? The Pace Calculator predicts her finish time for a half-marathon at 2hrs 45mins 30secs with an average pace of 7.5. If she runs at a pace 7.5 for 15K, she will have 62 minutes to finish the rest of 6K. Even if she walks at a pace of 10 for the final 6K, she still can finish the race as predicted by the Pace Calculator. However, if she fails to run at pace of 7.5 for the first 15K, she will not be able to complete the race under her goal (3 hours). Therefore, the best solution for the 1ST runner is to increase her stamina and to run at the recommended pace for the first 15K. 4
5. 5. ▼1st runner: Half-marathon prediction Most Recent Race Record: 10K/1hrs15mins Half-marathon prediction Finish Time: Average Pace: 2hrs 45mins 30secs 7mins 50secs The 2nd runner expects to improve his marathon finish time from 4 hours 30 minutes to 4 hours. The Pace Calculator recommends his average pace should be increased from 6.23min/km to 5.41min/km. This is a big challenge, indeed! To reach his goal, following a marathon training schedule may be a great start. Marathon training is specific for each runner. Even experienced runners rarely run 42K at one time for preparation. Actually, there are several kinds of workouts that the Pace Calculator has designed for different levels of runners, including Tempo Run, Long Slow Distance (LSD) etc. Some training schedules even include Speed Run, Interval Run, e.g. Yasso 800m. For the pace of Tempo Run, beginner runners may question whether or not their pace is the same as other runners in their category? The answer is no. But the Pace Calculator can help you decide what pace should you run or how slow should you run in a LSD workout? Another key feature of Pace Calculator is to provide the runner with the equivalent pace of commonly used workouts. Take the 2nd runner as an example: ▼2nd runner: Customized training pace Training Full Marathon 4h30m00s Full Marathon 4h00m00s Current Pace Target Pace Race Pace 3.23 min/km 5.41 min/km Yasso 800 m 5.34 min/km 4.57 min/km Tempo Run 5.38 min/km 5.19 min/km LSD 7.07 ~8.00 min/km 6.22 ~7.10 min/km Easy Run 7.07 min/km 6.22 min/km We suggest the 2nd runner follow the recommend pace, starting from their current pace. After familiarizing himself with each workout, he can challenge himself by moving toward the target pace. Making the recommendations of their training goal, he should be finish the marathon race in 4 hours. 5
