When I posted my assessment results yesterday, I forgot to post the VO2 sub max test outcome.VO2 is one factor that can determine an athlete’s capacity to perform sustained exercise and is linked to aerobic endurance.
When I started, my VO2 was 15.5, which for my age, was considered very poor. In May, it was 38.6, which was a low good. Yesterday, it was 46, which is an excellent.Traci credited this to the amount of cardio I do on my off training days, usually at least 30 minutes on the elliptical, sometimes 30-45 minutes on the treadmill.
Going from very poor to excellent in less than a year feels incredible, even better than the weight loss. I know that I’ve worked (and continue to work) hard, but to be able to make that change feels pretty incredible and very empowering!
