If you’re a swimmer looking to improve your performance, a pacing calculator can be a valuable tool. This calculator can help you determine your pace, time, and distance based on your goals and performances. With optional settings for MIN/100YDS and MIN/100M, you can customize your calculations to suit your needs.
The Pace Calculator can be used three different ways:
- to calculate your Pace, then enter in the Time and Distance. Generally useful when time trialing in training ie 2000m TT or if your looking at calculating possible Paces for an event coming up that you need to target. Interesting fact the Men’s World Record for the 1500m is 14:31.02 held by Sun Yang which calculates to averaging an amazing 58.07 seconds per 100m. In the 2012 London Olympics triathlon star Alistair Brownlee swam a 17:04 for the 1500m leg of the Olympic distance (1.5k-40k-10k).
- to calculate Time, then enter in your pace and distance variables. Used typically when you know a pace you can hold and the distance your looking to cover. Pablo Fernández holds the fastest 100km open water swim in history 12:21.14 (current assisted).
- to calculate Distance then enter in the pace and your time. Great when your about to hit the open water or pool and hold a set pace for a set time. Interesting fact, if you think you can hold under 1:24.05 (needs to be under) for a 24hr period then you will be Maarten van der Weijden’s World Record where he covered 102.8km back in 2018.
If your looking for a specific race PB then the Goal Time Calculator is best and fun to play with.
