So you must mean every event above 5k?
You will have to forgive me Shane. I am a former Ironman type triathlete, so my bias is for longer stuff. I did not know you could contest something so short as 3K ; ).

However, even at 95% VO2 max, the performance limiter is still metabolic adaptations inside of the muscles and not cardiovascular.
