Calculator to help runners increase their weekly base mileage in a consistent fashion. As mileage increases, the time spent at each training milestone increases as well.
Sample estimates with the current formula:
- 0 to 20 miles = 4 months
- 0 to 40 miles = 11 months
- 0 to 100 miles = 3.2 years
This calculator is for entertainment purposes only. Consult your doctor before starting any sort of training plan.
var Training = require('base-building'); // How long do I train at 3 miles per week (mpw) before upping my mileage? Training.makeWeeksHuman( Training.weeksAtMileage(3).weeksAtThisLevel ); // I've been training at 10 miles mpw, what should my new mileage be? Training.weeksAtMileage(10).milesAtNextLevel; // How long will it take me to go from 10 mpw to 40 mpw? Training.makeWeeksHuman( Training.weeksToGoal(10, 40) );
