MTB: Lactate threshold (LT) training...
Found an interesting article on lactate threshold (LT) training.
I'm not seeing myself as an athlete (far from it), but I've been watching my heart rate more carefully over the last few rides. I've also started to read up on "best" heart rate range for my age, especially since I've watched my HR staying in the high 180's for > 20 mins during extended climbs on the recent Ourimbah night ride...
I know that there are various rules of thumb, e.g. 220 - age = max heart rate, in my case 220 - 46 = 174. The article below talks about the benefits of staying in the 90% zone (LT), i.e. in my case this would be around 157. Are there any Nobmobers out there that are following a training guide that takes this into account? Can you please enlighten the rest of us? Thx.
Please post your target heart rate, track, duration, basis of training regime, pro's and con's. I know that Motionbased graphs can show HR vs elevation quite well but lets keep it to simple key facts only to make it easier to interpret/compare.
Happiness is a warm shock.
