I am in the midst of convincing myself that I am becoming serious in my training now because I’m one step further to booking a Test Cardio-Respiratoire, or a V02 Max test. I’ll bet some of you have done this and I’ll equally wager that some of you have thought it’d be cool to do.
It turns out that Nimes has a center dedicated to sports testing in the general hospital and the test costs €200 unless you have a prescription. Yes, that’s right, according to my bike shop owner (an ex-pro cyclist), you can ask your doctor to write a prescription to get this done because it can be considered a kind of medical check.
I’m getting shots in my knee tomorrow at the sports doctor’s office, so I’ll ask him if he can whip up a prescription. How many of you have done this type of thing?
