Being Young Again

Over on the New York Times Wellness blog, some researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim have developed a low-tech means of assessing aerobic fitness and estimating your “fitness age.” I made my selections on their rather simple online calculator and got this.
Must be time for me to visit the cosmetic surgeon because I look closer to my VO2MAX rating than I do my fitness age.

Did you enter your waistline in inches rather cm? That's the only way I could get that calculator to generate such a high VO2-max (70 is average for Division I collegiate distance runners).

Good catch, Jason. Danged metric! I should've known. That brings me down to 55 VO2-max and age 22. That sounds more reasonable. But I still need the surgery. :-)

Also note they are using dog years. You may need to convert?
