Is there a HR phenomenon I should know about?
In week 1,5,10 and 15 of my 16 week training (marathon on Sunday) I've done a 1 mile time trial at 142 bpm as a way of showing my progress.
Week 1,5 and 10 showed my time to run the same mile around a track go from 8mins 30s to 8mins 10s (not huge, but does equate to 8 mins+ over a marathon).
My last time trial today showed me running the mile at 9mins 20s FFS.
Not the best result as prep for my marathon on Sunday. Training gone really well, no issues, good taper, good sleep etc.
