Has anyone noticed a change in relationship between race time predictions over different distances, some time over the past year or so?? I'm pretty sure that for a given time/distance, McMillan is now predicting faster times for shorter distances and slower times for longer ones. e.g. call me stato but I'm pretty sure that plugging in my 10k pb of 33:25 predicted 16:09 for 5k and 2:34x for the marathon last time I checked, but now the figures are 16:05 and 2:36:49.
McMillan was always my favourite race time predictor because it seemed to work fairly well for me over these distances, but I can't help thinking I'll start to struggle with maintaining the relationship going down the distances now. Also, as far as I recall the RW predictor seems to work in the opposite direction, which would make the respective predictions even more diverse now.
I could e-mail the site and find out I suppose, but anyone know anything about this? Has he had too many complaints from people missing their marathon "targets"?
