You're stupid. You can't use "20 seconds" as some determining factor between times; you have to use percentages. The 20 seconds between 3:43 and 4:03 are a much larger percentage of the time than the 20 seconds between 4:12 and 4:32 (4:12 being the women's record? I'm not actually sure.)

Well her 1500 PR is like 20 seconds off WR. Add 20 seconds to 3:43 and that is how I got 4:03. Those numbers you posted are bogus. Mary Cain ran a 4:04 yet a 4:10 is equivalent to a 3:55? So what is Cain's 4:04 equivalent to? A 3:49 mile?
Look at it this way (which also isn't entirely accurate)...Mary Cain is about a second under the A standard, which would be like running a 3:34.something if you were a guy. A 3:34 is roughly equivalent to 3:51 for the mile. So yes, pretty much.
Subtracting the same amount of seconds between vastly different times is pretty stupid, bro. Learn some maths.
