    Psyched to read the test results and would definitely be interested in a Gunny camp. Keep me posted on both!~stubert.http://runsturun.blogspot.com

    Very interesting stuff about the handhelds/carrier study. I look forward to hearing more about this. I've often wondered the same about which is better. I was thinking about this a lot during my run today and just question how accurate the finding could be generally as everyones form is so different. What I mean is that someone running with handhelds and holds their arms high (ie. Geb), is going to be different than a low arm carriage (ie. Ryan Hall) or someone who has more upper body crossover (ie. Paula Radcliffe). So, while the results will certainly be very interesting, I find it hard to understand how it could be effective to make a recommendation for anyone other than the person who is being tested. Great for you to know though. The other thing that I think comes into play too is how technical the course is…ie. more technical might favour handhelds, while a fast course might favour a bottle belt. Regardless, as I said, I find this very interesting and looking forward to reading more.

    Had my own VO2 Max tested last week ironically, enough. And, just as I thought, I am decidedly "enh". :0)

    I'd come up from Montrose for an ultra camp. If you ever want to get out of the cold plains of Gunni this winter and run some canyons outside of Montroe/Delta I'd be happy to show you around.Scott Shineslshine@hotmail.com

    Rumor has it that the reason Matt C carries his water bottles in his armpits is because it drops his heart rate 2-3 beats per minute.
