VO2 Test

This is an amended version of my earlier post. I didn’t do the VO2 max test, but VO2 sub max test. You can learn more about these tests – probably more than you want to learn – here.

This is one assessment result that I was most surprised to see, and I’m so psyched by it!

This morning, we completed yesterday’s assessment with the VO2 sub max test. VO2 is one factor that can determine an athlete’s capacity to perform sustained exercise and is linked to aerobic endurance.

Today’s VO2 was 38.6. This isn’t something I paid a lot of attention to in the last 36 weeks. I didn’t even remember what my starting VO2 was, so when Danny said that 38.6 was exceptional, I figured he was just being supportive and encouraging.

When I got home, I looked at my starting VO2 and saw that it was 15.5, but I still didn’t have a frame of reference.  Then I talked to Traci, who said that essentially I’ve gone from very poor to above average?! What?! All of those early, early mornings are certainly paying off!
