    1000m to 800m Conversion

    Post by FinishingKick on Tue Jan 13, 2009 8:00 pm

    My 800m PR is 2:14, but I looked up my 1000m PR (2:50) on McMillan and it said my 800m would be 2:10. Normally I don't completely follow those things but the 1000m and the 800m are pretty close. Do you think I could run 2:10?

    I don't know exact conversions, but I know I ran a 2:47 1000m and had a 2:10 indoor 800. Those are just for indoor. A 2:40 1000m guy in my conference runs a 1:56 800 outdoor. Another guy on my team did a 2:57 1000m and a 2:12 outdoor 800. That's all the help I can give. Indoor distances are hard to convert.

    i hate converting. anyways I run a 2:41 and run a 1:59 800, also a guy on my team runs a 2:37 but runs a 1:53, so it's kinda hard to gauge.

    It's not an exact pace conversion, but what one might be expected to run in one race based on another PR. Normally they would be different for different people but the 1000m is so close to the 800m that I was wondering if it mattered.

    Oh this is the bullshit calculator that I saw when I first started running. Yea I should be running a 13.2 100 and a 15:30 5k with my times. Very innaccurate.

    That's the point, it doesn't work for large conversions but the 800m and 1000m are really close.
