Hello good evening, nice to meet you all, I'm new here on this forum.<br />
I don't know if this is the correct way to start a new topic, but let's try.<br />
I'm an an intermediate/experienced runner. <br />
I have a specific question about running and VO2 max / hitting the treshold:<br />
Is it possible to "feel" when you hit your VO2 max level while running? And if yes, how should it feel like?<br />
Is it possible to "feel" when you hit your treshold heartrate? And if yes, how should it feel like? <br />
I'm asking this question because I think I can feel it in my breeding when I hit my VO2 max level, but I'm not sure if what I feel is really me hitting my VO2 max. What I feel is I'm really starting to gasp heavily while hitting a limit. My lungs are trying to get in more air, but they just can't. It feels a bit like choking, like if someone is squeezing your trachea/windpipe. Has someone experienced the same feeling when you really push towards the limit? After the gasping I can still push on until I reach HRmax.
