    Look at the purdy column, the other conversions are garbage.
    according to that, i should run a 16:39.

    Ya, that makes sense. I find the Purdy equivalencies are very very accurate.

    Ya, a 2:25 800m is a lot worse than an 18:00 5k (and it comes up with a 19:22 5k if you put in a 2:25 800m anyway)

    You see, the calculator calculates what you can run, not what you may have actually run in the past. If you ran an 800m race as well as you ran your 5k pr, you would run about a 2:16.
