Predicting One Mile and Two Mile Run Performance from Physiological Measures.
Sucec, A. A.
Twenty-three male distance runners between the ages of 16 and 23 who had achieved a ten-minute or better two-mile performance were tested to determine physical and physiological characteristics to be used in predictive research regarding running performance. Relative body fat ratio, metabolic data, and oxygen intake capability were among the components isolated by the measurements. Treadmill testing to the point of exhaustion revealed that aerobic rather than anaerobic energy conservation was of significant importance to the athletes' performances. Projections based on the proposed predictive model were concurrent with those arrived at from the physiological research. Tables, charts, and statistical listings of performance objectives are included in the research report. (LH)
