i also had some more fun playing with the scoring tables and here are some better updated conversion formulas:
100 -> 200
(100 x 2) + .5
up to an additional .5 can be added if the sprinter is slower (12ish seconds). if you have a sub 11 sprinter, everything changes depending on if they are a 200 or 100 specialist etc.
200 -> 300
(200 x 2) +2
this actually works pretty well im surprised. i made it up because i didnt have an equation to use.
300 -> 400
((300 – 2) x 1.333) +5
should serve you well.
200 -> 400
(200 x 2) + 5
the old x 2 + 3.5 or + 4 doesnt really hold up well. maybe if they are in super shape with a middle distance background (the secret to baylor?)
I treid this with our teams fastest sprinter:
(11.5 x 2)+.5= 23.5 200m
(23.5×2)+5= 52 second 400m
Maybe I should tell him he can't run that fast of a 400m…
And I tried it with our teams slowest sprinter:
(12.33 x 2)+.5 = 25.16 200m
(25.16 x 2)+5 = 55.32 400m
Works very well here. Overall, I really like the conversion chart cockysprinter. Do you have conversions for 150s, 250s, and 350s? I was thinking about testing my speed in the offseason by running 200s, and if you could figure out some conversions it would be greatly appreciated.
i do think that the equations get less accurate for runners that are capable of running faster than 11.00, 22.50, or 50.00, but it sounds to me like he should step up to middle distance and see how he fares. there could be a timing issue withe 100 (if it was ht) or maybe he just doesnt know how to run the 100 very well. or possibly he just doesnt run the 100 very often since he seems like a 400m specialist.
i dont have and 150, 250, or 350 calculators, but mike does have a points system on his test decathlon, i believe one of the tests is a 250m. maybe for a 150 you could use (100m x 1.5) + .2 or .25. i dont really see the point in a 250, i think a 300 would work just as well. depending on your 150 compared to 300, you could see which event you are better at or how your SE is coming along.
also, on the front page i added the splits from asafas final 9.77 run.
