Buddo/Greg - Yes, I had to pay, but it was cheap. $45 for the two tests. It would've only been $65 if the other 2 were included, as well. I guess that's what's nice about having it done at the university. The students need the experience, so the fee basically covers the cost of the tests.
Chris - FFMI (Fat Free Body Mass Index) for Elite Female Athletes, for Distance Runners, should be 16-17. Based on my weight/height, my FFMI is 16.
A VO2 max chart indicates that women between the ages of 40-49 are in the "superior" category if they are >36.9. My VO2 max was 42.2. (I'll be throwin' this "superior" thing around for awhile!)
Reaching 1,243 in 2008 -- one day, one week, one mile at a time.
