Your wife suggests going on holiday at the end of January and you think 'let's go somewhere warm' rather than 'let's go skiing'.

Literatin, when I took up running I came from a background of playing footbal on Saturdays and Sundays and doing regular 20 mile cycles, but it still hurt.

When I took up running it was always my chest that gave out before my legs no matter if it was an easy run or not.

I have been led to believe that VO2max is just a measure of the maximum amount of oxygen your body can absorb, it isn't a measure of how effeciently your body uses that oxygen. How efficiently you use oxygen determines your performance. Is that wrong?
