I created an individual comparative effort google sheet that I can use for 5 different paces, 400, 800, 1600, 3200 and 5K (each has their own table) and that gives comparative efforts for the paces of the Half Marathon, 10K, 5k, 3200, 3000, 2000, 1600, 1000, 800, 600, 500, 400, 300, 200, 150, 100, and 50. The separate table also gives the splits for 50 100 150 200 300 400 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000 for each of the above listed paces. I made this to fit my needs. I have an individualized plan for everyone of one my athletes. This allows me to help take that individualization even further and spend more time coaching my athletes, instead of figuring out times.
You might ask what the difference between this and the comparative effort calculators available on the internet...several things. I can duplicate one of these for every athlete I have (each athlete I have has their own protected sheet they keep theirs in) and use their goal pace (or PR) depending on how you train your athletes and they have every training pace and split at their fingertips Once their GP or PR is met simply make them a new one. My kids write their splits for the workout on medical tape and put it somewhere on their body that they can see.
With XC season coming up, I will just use the 5k chart. When we have a VO2 Max day, we will use the 3200 pace on the 5k table. Depending on what distance you are doing your 3200 pace work at all you athletes will have their splits already computed for them. SE2 days use the 800m pace, SE1 use the 400 pace, speed endurance days I use the 200m.
Imagine the time you will save having all your athletes splits and paces at your fingertips and theirs. I have a 400, 800, 1600, 3200, and 5K to meet all my training needs from XC to the events I coach in track, each with their own chart . I change the time for the 400 and just the 400 chart changes, if I change the 800 just the 800 chart changes...and so on
Please take a look at the restricted one. Nothing on it changes. Let me know if you would like me to change one of the times and I will change it and you can see all the changes made to that table.
