They look great to me. A VO2 max of 40ml/kg/min is good for someone of your age. Typically, you'll see a sedentary college-aged individual with a VO2 max of maybe 35ml/kg/min, but that will drop as they age, assuming they maintain that level of inactivity. So with your age and a VO2 max of 40, that's really good! You must have had either a pretty high VO2 max to start with (genetics) or you did some good training throughout your life.
Lactate Threshold of 81% is very good as well! So you should be able to theoretically ride just under 81% of your maximum heart rate and still feel pretty good.
Resting HR of 44bpm is great. That's nice and low, where it should be.
