Pace vs finish time

I got the idea for this while skating Sunday morning and a cyclist read off his computer the speed in which we were moving.  Basically at average speed in MPH this is the time to complete a 26.2 mile Marathon.  In order to finish in under an hour twenty minutes the average speed needs to be 20 miles per hour or a 3 minute per mile pace.  I thought this might be helpful for training.

 

Average Speed            Total Marathon Time   Pace per mile

(in mph)                     (hour, minutes)                    (minutes, seconds)

16.0                            1 hour, 38 minutes                     3 minutes, 45 seconds

16.5                            1 hour, 35 minutes                     3 minutes, 38 seconds

17.0                            1 hour, 32 minutes                     3 minutes, 32 seconds

18.0                            1 hour, 27 minutes                     3 minutes, 20 seconds

18.5                            1 hour, 25 minutes                     3 minutes, 15 seconds

19.0                            1 hour, 23 minutes                     3 minutes, 9 seconds

19.5                            1 hour, 21 minutes                     3 minutes, 5 seconds

20.0                            1 hour, 19 minutes                     3 minutes, 0 seconds

20.5                            1 hour, 17 minutes                     2 minutes, 56 seconds

21.0                            1 hour, 15 minutes                     2 minutes, 51 seconds

21.5                            1 hour, 13 minutes                     2 minutes, 47 seconds

22.0                            1 hour, 11 minutes                     2 minutes, 44 seconds

22.5                            1 hour, 10 minutes                     2 minutes, 40 seconds

23.0                             1 hour, 8 minutes                     2 minutes, 37 seconds
