Talking new pullbuoy time conversions

-- pullbuoy time conversions

The pullbuoy convertor now includes ASA equivalent performance tables, so you can switch your times between long and short course at the click of a mouse.

I should also say that although I have tested it extensively, there may still be teething problems, so if you find a strange result, please let me know either by email or by posting here.

Thanks for that - the ASA tables are a real pain to use! The conversion worked for the event I tried (male 800 free).

Conversions LC Yards to LC/SC Metres

Is anyone aware of any conversion tables or calculator that will convert LC Yards to Short Course Meters and Long Couse Metres?

Thanks

Thank you, but I think we are after a conversion for a long course 50 yard pool into long course metres if such a thing exists.

I'm pretty sure long course yards aren't commonly used in terms of racing? I thought it was just short course yards, and then long and short course metres, but I could be wrong.

The ASA tables only give values for 50 Metres, 33 1/3 Metres, 25 Metres, 20 Metres, 36 2/3 Yards, 27 1/2 Yards, 33 1/3 Yards, 25 Yards and 20 Yards so the pullbuoy convertor is also limited to those distances. The automated conversions for the pool lenghts other than 25m and 50m will be online soon.

Steve,

Perhaps I am not using it properly, but it doesn't seem to convert times between intervals, just gives the lower (faster) time, nor does it interpolate where the intervals between the respective upper and lower bands step change (LC is 0.5 sec, SC is 0.6 sec for example). Am I doing it wrong?

Nope you've found a bug - for some reason it doesn't get into the interpolation having found the lower bound time. I'll have a look at it after training tonight.

Now fixed (as far as I can tell) - interpolates correctly when required.

You are indeed right, It was a pool we use for LC training at Oundle School. We were doing some max sets in prep for the world masters, I was trying to make sense of my times.

LC Yards to LC Metres

Well I did find this on the web, I guess it'll be good enough

Yards to Long Course Meters:
1. Convert your time to seconds
2. Multiply by 1.1
3. Add 0.8 seconds for each turn you aren't doing. For instance a 200 yd free has 7 turns, a 200m free has only 3 turns, so you would add 4 seconds.

In a nutshell, then:

meters = (yards x 1.1) + (0.8 x turns.diff.)

We'll see how I get on swimming in our LC lido, it's 100Yards long
That really is LC training
