I ended up stopping after 3 because I was out of time. Other than that, a pretty standard workout. I was a little tired from the HM that I did yesterday evening (about 12 hours of rest), and I didn’t sleep all that well.
I’ve been seeing some funny lactate readings lately. On Saturday, I was barely breaking a sweat, but my first lactate reading was 2.8. So I redid the test and measured 1.6. Today, again, my first test was 2.8. So I did a second test and read 1.3. I think I must be getting too lax in my sweat wiping processes.
To try to get this a bit more under control, for the next week or so, I think I will routinely do 2 tests after 60 minutes to look at the variation in readings. I’ll also try to be a bit more fastidious in my procedures.
I will try to do a quick 30 minute steady state session this evening.
Tomorrow morning: 4 x 5K / 2′ rest. Pace target: 1:52
