Diamond Groups

Here is an interesting way to help you determine what splits you might want to target.  This idea came from The Great Ed Willson of Eugene, OR. The splits for each segment are separated into finish hour groups. Let’s say you want to run 22-23 hours. You can look at the splits that the 22-23 hour finishers ran. Outliers to the positive ran slower for that segment that other 22-23 hour finishers, while outliers to the negative ran faster than the group. The perfect split for your time goal may be right in the middle of your diamond group.
