I got my VO2 Max tested again at Peak Fitness & Performance* again. My take away is that I am fit, but fat. This was not really a surprise though. It was apparent based on the picture below which was taken during the Zen ride last week after the race. The nice thing about this is under my control. Additionally losing some body fat will ultimately make me more fit. So I have been working on losing my winter weight. This usually happens somewhat naturally as the season progresses.But I do need to start watching my diet.
Aaron also asked if I had ever had a muscle biopsy to see what muscle type I have. My anaerobic threshold was calculated at 144 bpm. Based on this he believes I have a high percentage of type 2 (fast twitch) fibers. It would be interesting to find out.
A fat KC*Aaron from Peak is sponsoring some members of the Mad Dog Team and providing training advice. We were lucky enough to be selected to work with him. I am excited for this opportunity. I have heard great things about Aaron's training.
