I’ve Got An Ass Like a Pro

I cannot wait to tell you all about this physiological test I had yesterday and why you need to  do it too. Can’t do it now, though, as I have some other stuff on the agenda.

P1100332

As a teaser, here are a couple of “bonus” things I learned  with Dr. Inigo San Millan, Director of the Exercise Physiology and Human Performance Lab at the University of Colorado's Anschutz Health & Wellness Center:

  • No one laughs at you when you go into the storage closet instead of the bathroom
  • It’s okay to drool in the oxygen mask when you start breathing hard. Burping is kind of gross, though.
  • It’s fun to sit my ass on the same bike seat where the pros sit their asses
  • You really do not know what’s going on behind the scenes in your body while you train until you have this done.

More later on V02 Max, fueling, training zones, body composition and lactate thresholds and what they say about my training and future.

Now, baseball tournament then off for margs at the pool. Got to have some priorities beyond blogging and training, right?

  19. I'm really looking forward to your explanatory post! I have been working hard and dropping lbs, I lost 18 but I have 50 to go until I can be healthy! (yep...just under 200 now. :)...spine surgery sucks and helped me gain a lot. As I get fit again, I do kind of wonder what is going on, it feels like the more I know the better I can go forward back into being fit! Take Care, Janna
