On checking easy pace on McMillan pace calculator, does anyone find it is a bit confusing and actually quite dangerous? According to my 5-10k race times, my easy pace is between 8:10m/m and 9:10m/m. Now, I know, from being quite an experienced runner that to do all my easy runs nearer 8:10m/m would be a death wish (given that my HMRP is around 7:50m/m) BUT to some less experienced runners, on looking at that guide, they could think "right, this is the right pace, off I go on my 10 miler at 8:10m/m" and injure themselves. I find the other paces for speed sessions pretty spot on, but really do question the easy pace guides. I use a HRM to gauge my easy pace but I do know some runners who use McMillan as a guide for pace and have ended up injured.
