Correct. The thing is, he could be running .1 miles at a time, taking a 30s break, going again, etc. Still too fast, and stupid. But we can't know anything about actual elapsed time over a certain mile or something from this Strava.

As some have mentioned, you could cross-reference to the RV tracker for some more info.

The Strava "best efforts" will be accurate - actual elapsed time for that distance.

I'm still not following why elapsed time is necessary here. Is "maybe he was doing intervals for 30 miles" the argument?

I think it's beyond the feasibility of human physiology that someone running across the country was doing these paces, this often, regardless of how frequently they stopped entirely to rest.[/quote]

I completely agree. It just irked me that people are saying "look at this mile stretch done in 5:xx or whatever". We just cannot say that without the complete data. There is no knowledge of the amount of time passed between 2 points based on just looking at the Strava splits. The time when he is stopped is completely ignored by Strava for that. Just making sure we put the right analysis out there to be credible.

But yes, I don't care how many breaks you take, the paces he runs are unrealistic.
