Abstract: This study investigated the interrelationships between predicted Max VO2, actual Max VO2 and various running performances of individuals from three subject groups. More specifically, the study attempted to ascertain within a composite and each of three ability subgroups: (1) the relationship between actual Max VO2 and predicted Max VO2; (2) the correlations between actual oxygen uptake (L/min. and ml/kg/min.) and half-mile, mile, and three-mile performance times; (3) the relationship between predicted Max VO2 and performance in the half-mile, mile, and three-mile run; and (4) the significance of the difference among the correlation coefficients obtained between the predicted and actual measures of oxygen uptake (ml/kg/min.) and running performance . . . The relationships between predicted oxygen uptake and running performance were significant for the composite group at each distance vs. MAX VO2 ml/kg/min. and the trained runners at half mile (L/min.). The t value obtained for the differences among the correlation coefficients revealed significance for the trained runner sub-group at the half-mile and mile. With one exception, the relationships between actual and predicted Max VO2 (ml/kg/min.) increased as a function of distance.
