Results of bike test

Please allow me to gloat just this once. I may never win anything again worth winning or beat any records worth beating but I think I have a right to feel chuffed about the results of my bike test. You get a mark out of 10 for each of the various categories, your VO2max, how close to your VO2max your anaerobic threshold is, your effeciency in terms of oxygen use, how many watts you can crank out etc. The mark "10" usually corresponds to an elite athlete (for example, Paula Radcliffe, unsurprisingly, gets 10 out of 10 for running efficiency and VO2max, a combination of which makes her a World Record Marathon runner). Ordinary mortals may get very high marks for some aspects but not for others, resulting in a good performance but not a World beating one. Well, I didn't get 10 in some of the criteria, I got #N/A! which means literally "off the scale" (more than 10, not less than zero - very funny!). My VO2max came out lower than in the running test I did at the end of last year (53 versus 61) which I suppose reflects the comments I made here on the day of the test.

I shall enjoy my little victory but now the trick is to convert it into something meaningful, or at least, something that is recognized (by me, if not by others).

Haha, I managed to crash the spreadsheet with pure leg power
