Update to Heat limited running pace

As part of my continuing research in to how heat affects runners, I have tweaked the formulas behind the ‘Heat limited running pace’ calculator. You will find the values have changed slightly, but not significantly. (For those interested, I have modified the parameters for calculating skin temperature based on Bodil Nielsen’s work).
