Catch Me If You Can

What does this planner do?

This planner/calculator estimates how long you’ll survive in the Catch Me If You Can (CMIYC) benchmark/signature workout @ OTF, based on a set of predefined strategies.

Unlike the pace chart, this planner gives you the flexibility to have a mix of
push
,
base
&
all-out
during the run!
