There are lots of different ways to explain this, and i’m sure lots of pros and cons to this method of measurement, but this one seems pretty popular in France right now, so we are just going to go with it.

Its linked to your V02 MAX, for a more precise interpretation of the calculation please give Wikipedia a go here

After our latest VMA sessions with Thomas (right)  we have the following results :-

This is what you should see – (with your VMA result in the top left hand corner) – so you can see that with my VMA of 17.5 I should be able to run a 10km at 90% of VMA in 38mins – which is actually not far off my personal best – so hows does yours compare ??
