I like late afternoon workouts. I seem to be much better.
Today, I started around 4:30 at home after we returned from Cape Cod.
- L4 format
- power target: 10W x spm
- Slow start to warmup
- HR limit: 155 (never got even close to that)
- Lactate test at the end
Completely routine until about 12 minutes to go from the end. My phone rang, and the number that came up was my Dad. I thought that I would call him back as soon as I finished. But as soon as it stopped ringing, he called again. Now I was worried, so I stopped and picked up. No emergency, thank goodness. Then I picked up where I left off and finished.

I tested lactate when I finished….1.2mmol/l
Last time I did this workout, it was over 2.
