Hello all- When runners reach VO2max in the laboratory they are often (always) running at some incline. However, runners like to get a velocity associated with VO2max to help pace themselves during workouts. Are there any calculations that relate this velocity to the velocity they would be reaching on a flat?

Maybe Power = Force * Velocity. I just don't know what the force would be. mg? resistive forces? GRF? Or maybe I am way off base and calculations already exist?

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
