4-1 Run Pace Calculator

This project has nothing to do with robots, microcontrollers or electronics, but I have decided to include this here as I consider this as a fun endeavour. I found this fun not only because it is an intellectual exercise but because I used the actual calculator in computing for my first 42K Run/Walk Pace during the 2012 Cebu City International Marathon.

The objective of this projects is to create an online calculator that will compute for the "Run/Walk Pace" when using the "4-1 Style of Marathon Running". 

It is consist of 2 parts, the derivation of the working equation and the implementation of the actual "Running Pace Calculator" for the "4-1 Style of Marathon Running". 

The paper detailing the Equation Derivation can be found here. And the actual online calculator is found here.

That's it for this project.

Keep running!!!

I am Johnson, a.k.a the MoBoTGeek.

I have decided to created a Blog to document the stuff I have have been doing relating to mobile robot, microcontroller and other electronics projects.

As planned (hoping to follow it), blog entries will all be introductions to a project that I have completed. Details of it will all be written using LaTeX2e and posted in PDF format.

If there are stuff you think I am capable of building/making or if there are stuff you think I can help you with, please feel free to e-mail me and will be posting replies in the form of a Blog or if needed, a PM.

Well, that's it for my first post. Allow me to end it, with my favorite line from my favorite movie, Star Wars, "May the Force be with you!!!".

Till my next post.
