running economy

defined as the volume of oxygen required per km, relative to body mass, to run at a submaximal speed, so expressed in mL.kg-1.km-1. Most commonly reported, however, in terms of the rate of oxygen usage relative to body mass, in mL.kg-1.min-1, in a run at a standard speed of 16 km per hour: note the lower the value, the greater the 'economy'.
