Conditions at the track were very similar to those for the previous tests. If anything there was a slight breeze but this did not impact at all. A 1 hour warmdown afterwards shows that I am in ultra territory. I was interested in Ewen's recording of heartbeats per km as a tool for assessing how training is going so I have added it to the table. I must be doing something right as the improvement is continuing and the drift in pace over the 5 miles is still dropping. The improved pace of 2 seconds from mile 3 to 4 is a first, which is more than likely due to the margin of error in pressing the lap button at the end of each mile, although it is encouraging that the last 3 miles were at a consistently steady pace.
I got a package in the post this week containing my fueling for Connemara, which will get a road test this weekend.
