So in some of the strava data, I see "best estimated" race "efforts" (everything from mile, 2mile, half marathon, 30k, etc.). Does that mean that RY covered that distance in that run somewhere? Or is that converting 2 miles of his run uphill at altitude to its rough equivalent at sea level on a flat course?
On this 26.8 mile run on May 19 (which has since disappeared, but it's still open on my computer), Strava says "best estimated 2 mile effort" in 8:57. Does that mean he covered 2 miles in 8:57 in that run somewhere?
If so, 4:29/mile for 2 miles would be pretty impressive in a 26.8 mile run mostly uphill at altitude.
Screenshot this. I don't know if Strava requires that the run is continuous, but it would seem logical. It doesn't really make sense to say "best estimated mile effort" if you stopped your watch 15 times to rest.
