Oxygen Uptake Response to an 800-m Running Race


We tested the hypothesis that time course of 02 uptake (V02) measured during a supramaximal exercise performed in the field is driven to maximal oxygen uptake (V02max). 0n an outdoor track, five middle-distance male runners first performed a test to determine V02max and a supramaximal 800-m running test at least two days apart. V02 response was measured from the start to the end of exercise with the use of a miniaturised telemetric gas exchange system (Cosmed K4). V02max was reached by all subjects 45 ± 11 s (mean ± SD) after the onset of the 800-m race (i.e., 316 ± 75 m), and was maintained during the next 33 ± 6 s (i.e., 219 ± 41 m). The mean relative exercise intensity of the 800 m was 120 % V02max. An unexpected significant decrease in V02 (24.1 ± 7.0 %; p < 0.05) was observed in all subjects during the final 38 ± 17 s (i.e., the last 265 ± 104 m). We concluded that, at onset ofa simulated 800 m running event, V02 is quickly projected towards the V02max, and then becomes limited by the achievable V02max. This race profile shown by all athletes is in some contrast to what can be expected from earlier findings in a laboratory setting.
