Lactate Test #3: Moving in the right direction
Last week, I did my third lactate test of the season. As planned after my second test [https://www.redlinealpine.com/lactate-test-2-what-happened-to-aerobic-capacity/] , I wanted to minimize glycogen depletion in the anaerobic portion, so I split the test into two parts. I did the aerobic part on July 2nd and the
Lactate Test #2: What happened to aerobic capacity?
On May 21st, I did my second lactate capacity test of the season. I planned on both an aerobic and anaerobic capacity check during the test. But the aerobic part of the test was too long. It likely caused a bit of glycogen depletion. Depletion would have compromised the results
Lactate Test #1: Where am I starting from?
On April 7th, I did my first lactate capacity test of the training season. A lactate capacity test tells you: * Your aerobic capacity by plotting ~2 mM/L and ~4 mM/L against pace and heart rate; * Your anaerobic capacity by measuring the peak lactate output during the test; [https:
