We are using the same math here as used on the previous page, but it is doing just the reverse. That is, instead of calculating a predicted time from a VO2max score, we are starting with a known time and calculating the "effective VO2max" score. The word "effective" just means that the score is VO2max multiplied by a mitigating factor that is determined by one's running economy, running efficiency, biomechanics, and mental toughness. Your actual race or PR time reflects that composite.
Notice that I have placed a pull-down option for choosing either miles or kilometers. The actual "Oxygen Power" tables of Daniels and Gilbert provided cross-references in both miles and kilometers. You might want to compare the results you obtain from inserting different values in the above boxes to that on Pages 63-64 of the Daniels'Running Formula text.
The table there lists VDOT for race performance optimal times, and these should match up with what you derive here, except I have extended them to the third decimal place. To see the full range of data contained in the Daniels/Gilbert tables, You can plug in PR times for distances as low as 0.8 kilometers (800 meters) to as high as 50 kilometers.
Once your effective VO2max is known for a PR, it is a simple matter to plug that same number back into the mathematical algorithm used for Page 8 along with other distances, and predict your performance on those additional distances. We will do that on the next page. I have not written the next page yet, but I should be doing that soon. Come back again to read the update.
