I survived! After spending nearly 2.5 hrs at Boulder Center for Sports Medicine I walked out reassuring what I kind of already knew, KEEP THE DAY JOB! Jokes aside, the data I got from the test should help me a ton next year.... we will see.
The Lactate test
The lactate test was much easier then I would have thought, here is how it generally went....
* 20-ish minute warm up on the bike
* start the test at 125 watts and ever 4 minutes take some blood from my finger, ask me what the RPE is and up the watts by 25
