This morning I hit the track to determine my VO2 max using the Balke test. You run as fast as you can on a track for 15 min, do some equation, and voila. Or you can just input your distance into that handy site. It probably wasn’t a good idea to stuff my face with two bowls of cereal, a banana, and multiple Girl Scout cookies before my 2.5 mile warm up TO the track but I suppose this only means that I will be faster after my second VO2 test. I did beat some high school girl on the track though. After all that, I determined my VO2 max to be 42.72. Whatever that means.
Anyone ever test their VO2? If so, how did you do it?
