This is a calculator which although looks crude is based on some hairy mathematics. Thanks to Charles Harper for digging up the theory.

Master Points Calculator

This is a calculator using the same logic as employed by the system which Jeff Philips coined the 'Italian Points Calculator'. It has recently been taken offline from its original source, so we here in DSC towers have collated the data and recreated it.

The logic is you take your masters event and you get the top ten swims in that event in the world of all time. You then discard the current world record and get the average of the remaining 9 times. This time is then equal to the hypothetical 1000 points.

Swim Time Prediction Tool

First Swim

Distance: metres

Time: hours minutes seconds

Second Swim

Distance: metres

Time: hours minutes seconds

(Optional) Target Predictions

Calculate this: yes no

TFD:

If enabled, predicted target times will be calculated using the TFD as defined above. 1.06 is considered a good rate of decay for triathletes. The expected improvement (EI) column denotes the potential gains that you could see should you train well!

Target Distance & Desired Time

Distance: metres

Desired Time: hours minutes seconds

Suspected SDI:

Note:

  • It is recommended that you calculate your existing SDI using the other calculator.
  • If you set SDI to 1.0, it will give you your required 100m split time.

For reference: SDI < 1.05 would suggest that you are one paced or very fit. SDI > 1.09 would suggest that you are good at sprinting or out of shape. If your SDI is low, but your times are poor, you would probably benefit from sprint training. Conversely, if your SDI is high and your sprint times are good, you should do some endurance work.
