I don't know why I do this to myself, but last month I sent in a request to be a guinea pig for a new "Research Study for Cyclist". Well, unlike my request to gain entry into the Leadville 100, this one was accepted.
I guess one benefit is I get another VO2 Max test performed. Back in August I had one done with Dr. Smith at Performance Plus and the test results were much lower than any of my previous test. I have had several done over the years and they were all about the same - VO2 MAX of 61 ml/kg/min with a 203 Max hr. The one in August had me at 42 with a 187 max HR. Did my VO2 Max and HR really drop that much in just a few years? Or were the results incorrect? We will see if I am just getting old on February 22.
