    Eric, just wondering how the VO2max is calculated automatically for our entires...? Does it rely on heart rate info vs distance, time & body wieght? I have no idea...
      JaySee, I used the formula suggested by SteveB in this post.

        JaySee, For a full explaination, have a read of Daniels Running Formula by Jack Daniels, or the following link gives a bit of a summary. http://www.runningforfitness.org/faq/vo2.php The formula requires only run time and distance, and is really only accurate for 100% effort events, ie races.
