VO2 max, or maximal oxygen uptake, is one factor that can determine an athlete’s capacity to perform sustained exercise and is linked to aerobic endurance. VO2 max refers to the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense or maximal exercise. It is measured as “milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight.”

Today I did my first run after many months (years). Spate of injuries forced me to  not be able to run, yet even today’s run was not the most comfortable. Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 9.21.50 AM
