Hi

On my homepage I have the 'Monthly Stats Overview' shown, and it's a very useful metric for me. However, having recorded a split of '7:55' this evening I'm surprised to see that the overview shows my January fastest pace of '8:23'.

I'm frequently confused by the difference between pace and speed, so perhaps it's some failure on my part to understand the subtlety. What does the fastest pace time indicate? Perhaps it's the fastest average pace for one run.

Thanks,

Anthony

Hi Anthony,

I too enjoy that facility showing last month and the current months stats however they are not perfect!

The fastest pace is, as you corectly assume, only calculated for each total run and splits within these runs are not picked up. We thought that a 100m sprint within a run would not really be representative of anyones fastest pace on a length of run. However of course one could do a short run and if its is loggged as a separte run then the pace for that run would be taken into account and show up in the stats.

Andy,

Thanks for clarifying. I can see it more clearly now, as I've logged just one run for February (so far), and the statistic is as discussed.

Cheers,

Anthony
