This is a little calculator I put together to compute how many
miles per day to run a given number of total miles per week. In the default
(reset) settings, I entered 35 miles per week at a pace of 7:30 per mile. The two calculated rows show the
Miles and Times for each day of the week. For the miles, you'd run 3.9 miles
on Monday and 7 on Sunday. At 7:30 minutes per mile, Monday's run would take
you 28.9 minutes, and Friday's would take 52.5 minutes. Changing the pace per
mile will change only the "Minutes" row. Changing the miles per week will change
both the "Minutes" and "Miles" rows. If you need a rest
day, just add the number of miles on the day you takeoff to the Miles per
week, and you'll be pretty close to your original total miles per week as
each day will increase a bit.
You enter data in the yellow boxes only, everything else is calculated.
Just hit Enter or click on a box that's not yellow to recalculate.
The "Starting Day" dropbox lets you choose the day of the week to
start with.


The "Weight" field needs a bit of explanation.
It’s where you enter the number of miles or minutes to run each day. Rather
than entering an actual value for miles or time, you enter a number that's
relative to all the other days. If you
want to run twice as far on Monday as
on Tuesday, enter a number twice as large for Monday as Tuesday. The actual
miles and times will be calculated based on what you enter in the "Miles
Per Week," "Pace per
mile," and "Weight" cells. I set the default numbers to total
100, just to demonstrate that the "Percent" boxes will show the
proper percent for each day. However, you can enter any values, the
"Total" doesn't need to be 100.
