Abstract

We measured the gross rates of oxygen consumption (VO2, mlO2.kg-1.min-1) and energy expenditure (E, kcals.kg-1.min-1), and determined the oxygen (O2COT, mlO2.kg-1.km-1) and energetic (ECOT, kcals.kg-1.km-1) costs of transport in Average and Elite runners over a wide range of submaximal speeds. Stride frequency (SF) and length (SL) were measured at each running speed. Ten Average (10 km run time=40-60 min) and 10 Elite (10 km run time
