Pace Zone Analysis
Understand your pace zones to better align your workouts with your goals. Edit your profile to add a recent race or time trial and Strava will create custom pace zones for you. Please be aware that the race or time trial time saved in your account’s settings will only be used to generate pace zones on new activities uploaded to your Strava account. Changes to your race or time trial time will not update the pace zones on previously uploaded activities.
Pace data is bucketed into these zones using Grade Adjusted Pace (GAP), showing you how long you spent in each pace zone. Now you can easily see the varied pacing of interval workouts and the steady speed of a long, slow run. Pace zones are inspired by potential equivalent race performances by James Gardner and Gerry Purdy.
In addition to Pace Distribution and Heart Rate Analysis, runners can tag their run as a “Race,” giving runners interactive and granular pace data at every point during the race, including:
- A pace bar graph showing your pace fluctuation, as well as your mile/km trends.
- Visualization of your meaningful race splits, such as 5K splits for a marathon.
- Pace scrubbing data to analyze every critical point during the race.
- Projected finish time data based on your performance throughout the race.
