The main determinants of performance during the marathon are 1) maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), 2) ability to sustain high percentages of VO2max during long periods of time, and 3) running economy (RE). The fractional use of VO2max is related to the ability to sustain high workloads before lactate begins to accumulate in the blood, i.e., the so-cal...
