BHB - I hope your daughter is happy with your selection criteria. Somebody more cynical than me might suggest that you were deliberately selecting old plodders to take part in the study to artificially inflate your own performance on the treadmill. Now it would be a pretty sad and desperate individual who was prepared to jeopardise the scientific integrity of their daughter's final year degree project in a vain attempt to maintain their daughters childhood memories of a competitive high achieving father but sometime desperate times call for desperate measures!
Hope she is taking account of the biased selection process in her final statistical analysis!
