Subject: RE: 3000 to 2 mile conversion
Body:

To go 3000m to 2 miles -> divide 3k time by .926

To go 2 miles to 3000m -> multiply 2mi time by .926

To get your 2 mi equivalent from a 3200m time ->
divide 3200 time by .9941
Multiply by .9941 to get a 3200 time from a 2 mile time.

These work well and are accepted by statisticians as legitimate ways to convert/compare times in the 1500/1600/Mile and 3000/3200/2 mile.

Note that this conversion factor equates a 3:26.00 1500m with a 3:42.46 Mile.

Also note that an 8:30 3k (typical college level) converts to a 9:10.76 2-mile and a 9:07.51 3200m.
