A new Alexa skill called, Race Pace, is a pretty simple calculation tool – but also extremely valuable for runners who want to quickly identify workout and race paces to gain a new PR. Those that know me, know that I run quite a bit. As of today, I’m sitting at 672 consecutive days at an average over 10.25 miles per day during that stretch. When you run that much, or even close to that often, getting new PRs is tough. Using this Alexa skill, I can get a good idea of what it might take to accomplish the next one. For those really hard core, you can research others in your upcoming race and figure out what pace it will take to win.
Race Pace is a pace calculator that can help plan your next workout or race. Tell race pace your desired output, either: finish time, total distance, average pace, or average speed; then follow the prompts to complete a calculation. Race Pace supports both imperial and metric units as well as event names.
