Good stuff here.
Knight, the absolute Vo2 hasn't changed with weight loss, just the relative Vo2. So, is 1 minute improvement in 5k with 10% vo2 improvement, due to better oxygen exchange or decrease in mass??
Have read this in only one place, i'm paraphrasing- "women's anaerobic threshold is naturally almost same as vo2 max, much more than in men". Read in Coe and Martin first edition, I can site page tomorrow. Have not read anywhere else.
In experience with one more elite female have found this to be very true. Has anyone else found this to be true or read anywhere?
