Running Calculators - Training Pace, Race Times, Calorie, BMI and Heart Rate Calculators

Running calculators can be incredibly helpful in putting a little bit of science in your running.

Take for example, the Running Pace Calculator. It calculates your running training paces (easy, tempo, interval etc.) based on a recent race performance. A useful tool to determine whether your intervals are too fast (an often seen problem) or your easy runs too fast (even a bigger problem).

Running with a heart rate monitor? Then there are two calculators available to you to calculate your heart rate zones, using a slightly different methodology.

So yes, use some of these calculators from time to time to check in with your training and make sure you are on the right course.
