Dec 16th

Max HR field test today. Once this is calculated & lactate threshold is determined, then I will know where I will train at as related to HR. Training will be done to increase the lactate threshold, which in return will enable me to go farther, faster. Max HR changes with age (decreases), but usually just 1 or 2 beats per year. Therefore, I will not have to do this Max HR test for another 2 years. It was fun to do, but very very hard!
Also did my body composition test today. That is where they take the calibers & basically pinch you with it. These measurements are calculated to get your % of body fat. Also will be used to determine my optimal race weight.
I'll post all this numbers once I get them.
