So i performed the Aet test yesterday on the treadmill. Lactate measurements were high from the start! I did a 15min warm up averaging 119 bpm which is very low for me. I Started around 100bpm. The last 5 minutes i averaged around 138. My max was around 144 during the end of the warm up.
During the test
1st stage: hr123 – 6.2 Mmol
2nd hr129 – 11.2 Mmol
3nd hr143 – 3.3 Mmol
4nd hr148 – 3.6 Mmol
So as you can see from the start the 2 mMol limit was exceeded by far. I took a Lactate measurement 30 min after the test (at rest) . It showed > 2mMol!!
I knew my hear rate has always been high! My 30min HR Lactate Threshold test last year was 190 bpm. A few months ago it was 185hr on flat terrain (4:30 min/km pace) For my easy/moderate runs i usually average 140 to 160bpm. Some times before races my HR can be at 160-170 without even moving. However the Lactate concentration is unusually high. I did a bit of research and found that elevated Lactate at rest is not a good indication. What can this mean ? I’m planning on doing the Lactate test again next week.
Also 3 years ago i did a lab test. Lactate measurements 5min after the highest intensity test (vo2max) was at 12.2 mMol. My Max HR was 200 bpm
