When running, I work mostly in metric. 5k. 10k. 21.1.k. 42.2k. I think of running paces in mins/k. Miles confuse the hell out of me, especially when talking about running paces, so when our run leader talks about a 7 minute mile tempo run, I’m usually lost. So, I made these!
Mins/mile on the top, mins/km on the bottom. You can then judge just how fast your friend is when they are bragging about their run yesterday, or advise a pace for a newbie asking just how fast their tempo runs should be.
Couple of points on the bands:
- They are on the larger size, but to happily lodge behind running watches so don’t fall off that easily. Please bear that in mind if you have very small wrists
- The text is a little small, so if you struggle with close vision you may need your glasses. If I make a new batch, I’ll have a wider band so I can increase the font size.
- Yeah. I know no-one needs a 2mins/mile pace. I was a little over eager!
