Lactate Testing - It's That time of Year Again

It's that time of year for lactate tests everyone:

Dr. O just had his lactate test done, see the attached graph.  I was surprised to see that I was fitter this year, because it sure didn't feel that way during the Peak to Valley Ski race!  The test shows how useful lactate testing is - I pushed to the same max wattage and my perceived exertion was similar to my test from last year. Without the lactate I wouldn't get to appreciate all of that hard work I put into my fitness this year.

Stop playing small everyone, lactate testing is for everyone that exercises, not just elite athletes!
