More musings on Lactate

Comparison of two lactate tests.


Roughly similar, but lower readings for the powers below the aerobic threshold.  I think that’s a good thing.  4mmol power is about 5W higher now, also good.  HRs are right on top of each other which is just plain weird.

So I see this as a very hopeful sign.  I went from this baseline to setting most of my distance PBs using lactate based training.  There’s no reason I can’t do it again.

      Unfortunately, my training journal from that “era” is gone, so I can’t look at how things were going, but I think it was actually a bit of a low point for me. Starting Lactate Based training was a huge breakthrough for me then, I hope it can be again. From the stuff I posted on the Free Spirits Lactate thread, I was quite disciplined about staying <2.0mmol. My memory had fogged that out. I'm getting excited and hopeful.
