2k test. Fail

3 attempts. 3 failures. Handle down between 300m and 1000m in in each attempt. Combination of fear and upset stomach. Will try again soon. But not very soon. 

Very bummed. 

Lactate curve thoughts 

From Jan Olbrecht’s book. 

And this quote:

The swimmers with the best competition results over 400 m achieve the fastest times at low concentrations of lactate (2-Speed test, see Standard Lactate Test). Exceptions to this principle are possible if the swimmer can compensate for his lack of endurance by reaching higher levels of lactate (fig. 24). This compensation, however, is limited.
