"Lactate Threshold is like the floor in your home. VO2max is like the ceiling.
With my own training I would like to improve my lactate threshold. In other words I want to raise the floor up towards the ceiling."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
