|The thread on training logs got me looking at mine again. It has a nifty feature that computes the "PIH Points" for all your races. PIH points are basically a way of scoring races of different distances on the same (arbitrary) point scale, so you can compare performances across different distances. More points = better performance.
It's pretty encouraging when I look back over the races I did this year, because the PIH points for each race go up as the year goes on, meaning I'm actually make some improvement here! The values are:
OK, it looks like I declined a bit at year's end with that 629, but that's mostly due to me cratering in the final miles of my last race (California International Marathon). But if you take my time from the first 20 miles of that marathon and score it as a separate race, it gets a PIH score of 661, my best ever! Now I just need to keep that fitness rolling into 2005, instead of going to pieces and having to begin all over again. :-)
