Lactate test this morning, 4min intervals on the treadmill (1% incline), with speeds increasing from 11 kph to 19 kph, - 4 mins at 19 kph was a killer at the end of the session.
My heart maxed at 186 in that last 4 mins-highest i have ever seen it. I am 44 so think thats fairly high.
Waiting on the full report but looks like important info is recovery runs should be done at less than 143 bpm, and Lactate Threshold 158-165 bpm- as I run mostly hilly off road I hope the heart rate data will be more relevant than pace.
Will use the results along with all the advice I have had on here when I start PnD in 10 days or so.
Fantastic running and amazing targets on here as usual, an inspiring forum if ever there was one.
