This web site is an online tool for generating a table to check one's pacing in training (e.g. in running, swimming, etc.) The target time (or multiple alternative target times) are interpolated (assuming constant speed overall) to intermediate times for the given intermediate distance/for every lap.

The table output by this site can be output as a HTML page or alternatively output as a file to be processed further in a spreadsheed or word processing application. If you use the CSV output format the file will be offered automatically for downloading to your hard disk, where you can open it with a spreadsheet application (using appropriate import settings.)

The text sizes in this page and in the HTML output page are not defined as fixed sizes, which means you can size the output appropriately in your browser.

Mandatory input. Enter a distance here (e.g. 3 km). If you input a number, without an unit, the unit m (for metres) will be assumed. (e.g. an input of 10000 means 10,000 m)

This site can understand the following units:

Input | Alternatives | Meaning | Example |
---|---|---|---|

Meter (m) implicitly assumed | 3000 | ||

m | meters, metres | metre (m) | 3000 m |

km | kilometer, kilometres, kilometers | km (1000 m) | 3 km |

mi | mile, miles | statute mile (1609.344 m) | 2 mi |

nm | sm, nautical mile | nautical mile (1,852 m) | 2 nm |

yd | yard, yards | Yard (0,9144 m) | 100 yd |

ft | foot, feet | Foot (0,30480 m) | 1000 ft |

Mandatory input. You have got two options here:

If you input a single value here, it will be treated as a lap length and the intermediate times will be calculated for each multiple of the lap length until reaching the total distance. For example, for a total distance of 3000 m and a lap length of 400 m, itermediate times for 400 m, 800 m, 1200 m, 1600 m, 2000 m, 2400 m, 2800 m and the total distance of 3000 m will be output.

You can use all the units mentioned above unter "Total distance" i.e. m, km, mi, nm, ft etc.

If you input multiple values (i.e. values in multiple lines), then these will be treated as multple intermediate distances (measured from the start), That means you can calculate intermediate times for a training run where prominent features (where you want to check your time) occur at irregularly spaced points.

Also here you can use all the units mentioned above unter "Total distance" i.e. m, km, mi, nm, ft etc.

If you note something in brackets () at the end of one of the lines, the text within the brackets will be treated as a free-form note text and will be output as a remark in the appropriate line of the output table. If, for example, you enter 2 mi (footbridge) in one line, an intermediate time will be calculated for a distance of 2 miles, and footbridge will be shown in a remarks column of the output table.

You can enter one or more target time(s), one per line; for each target time the output table will contain a column with intermediate times for this target time.

Possible formats:

- Numerical value (without an unit or with unit s or seconds - target time in seconds e.g. (z.B. 1000 s or 1000 für 1000 seconds
- hours, minutes, and seconds, e.g.
- 1:20 = 1 minute 20 seconds,
- 3:2:20 = 3 hours 2 minutes 20 seconds,
- 1:2:4:40 = 1 day 2 hours 4 minutes 40 seconds,

You can also express a target time in terms of speed. The possible units are:

Input | Alternatives | Meaning | Example |
---|---|---|---|

km/h | kmh, kph | kilometres per hour | 10 km/h |

mph | mi/h, milesperhour | miles per hour | 20 mph |

kn | knots | knots | 3 kn |

m/s | mps | metres per second | 3 m/s |

ft/h | footperhour, feetperhour | feet per hour | 10000 ft/h |

If you have entered at least one target time in absolute terms (as a time or a speed), additional target times can be stated as percentages, referrting to the first absolutely stated time (reference time). Percentages with a sign (+/-) are treated as percentage deviations (e.g. +5 % = one-twentieth more); percentages without a sign will be treated as multipliers.

For example:

1000 s* = 1000 seconds (reference time because input as first absolute time)*

20:00* = 20 minutes 0 20 seconds = 1200 seconds (second target time)*

95 %* = 95 % of 1000 seconds = 950 seconds (third target time)*

-2 %* = 98 % of 1000 seconds = 980 seconds (fourth target time)*

+5 %* = 105 % of 1000 seconds = 1050 seconds (fifth target time)*
