Heart rates are roughly as follows (varying with weather, hydration status, glycogen levels, hormonal levels, etc.).

Very easy - about 70-73% of HR max

Easy - mid 70s

Moderate upper 70s to low 80s

Tempo - mid to upper 80s

Threshold near 90%

CV low 90s

AP - mid 90s

V.O2 max 98-100% of HR max.

Note, your personal max HR can go up and down. I may test you tomorrow morning and your HR max is 190. Tomorrow at 5pm it may be 196.  The following morning it might be 187. That afternoon it might be 192.

You have to use ranges for heart rates, I think. And, lock into how it's supposed to feel. When it's an easy day, be sure it feels easy, regardless of what your HR is.

Honestly, I don't know how. A friend from the Air Force who has a Master's degree in computer science input my formulas using coding to secure them. I don't know coding, and my friend has used up his time to help me. I don't expect him to help me further. If someone else, whom I can trust, knows coding and can help with inputting other information that I have, such as heart rate, body weight, running over hills, etc., please contact me.

In summary, I'll be glad to include other information to my www.runningprs.com website, but I need someone to secure my formulas and keep them private. Thanks!

The calculator does give you an equivalent performance for the the Half Marathon and Marathon, so simply do the math to calculate per mile, per kilometer or per 400.  The calculator does the hard part already.

I noted a minor problem this morning.  When I put a time of 2 minutes and 4.5 seconds in for an 800 meter distance, the 800m equivalent performance is listed as 2:03.88.

I know about that problem, but I can't do the code to change it, and it's such a small problem that at this point I am not worried about it. In the next few weeks, with the help of two computer science runners on this website, we'll get those glitches worked out.
