The VDOT calculation is clearly pretty bad for 5k and 10k. Are we really to believe that 26:40 is equivalent to the 1500 and mile records, and better than the marathon record? Also, a 7:20 3k is only equivalent to a 12:48? Riiiight. I guess Komen or Bekele should have just run a 7:13 3k (VDOT "equivalent" to 12:37).
