Here is a list of my best performances at each distance this year:
TC 1 Mile 5:27 MCQ = 39:13
USATF 5000m 19:51MCQ = 41:14
Human Race 8k 31:27 MCQ = 39:38
Get in Gear 10k 41:30 MCQ = 41:30
MDRA 15k 1:03:24 MCQ = 40:55
Rochester Half-Marathon 1:33:22 MCQ = 41:58
City of Lakes 25k 1:48:40 MCQ = 40:34
Twin Cities Marathon 3:25:43 MCQ = 43:41
Based on how I felt during and after the race I’m going to say it is between the MDRA 15k and City of Lakes 25k. City of Lakes was an average pace of 6:59 while the MDRA 15k was a 6:48 pace. The number next to the finish time above is the McMillian Calculator‘s 10k equivalent.
I would have picked City of Lakes as my best performance of 2008 but according the the somewhat scientific method of McMillian the TC 1 Mile was my best overall performance, then the 8k, then City of Lakes.
I know that using McMillian’s calculator isn’t neccessarily the most precise way to figure this out. Do you have a better method?
