VO2 max fun

First of all, I can sympathize with my clients...doing a detailed Food Diary is a pain in the butt...especially when you eat all day long!!! The study is going well, though. Tomorrow is the last day. I will spend it at Emory and Georgia Tech giving skin biopsies, blood, and sweat (and maybe some tears). I will spend about 2.5 hours on an indoor bike sweating away 3% of my body weight. I did get my VO2 max test yesterday. I'm not telling what it was...but I think it was decent considering I'm a female endurance cyclist. I'm sure it's nowhere near Danielle's...she is just a genetic freak! I sent the results to my coach so she'll have a better idea of where I am and how I need to be training. That test was the hardest 10 minutes ever! Actually, it was OK until the last 3 minutes....and then it was pure torture. That mask you have to wear could be the most uncomfortable thing around.
