Abstract

The aim of present work was to examine the relationship between the running velocity at the lactate turn-point (vLTP) and the time at which VO can be sustained (TVO ) during a continuous run to exhaustion at a minimal running velocity that yields VO (vVO ). Pearson’s correlation coefficient was used to determine the association between vLTP and TVO and between other selected physiological variables. Correlations between the relative vLTP and v VO was significant (r=0.63) at the p<0.04 level, TVO and T vVO (r=0.91) at p<0.001 level, and T vVO and TAVO (r=0.80) at p<0.01 level.
