    Just did a LT test

    And it sucked! Wow. Not that I didn't expect it to, I'd previously been using an LT estimate from an indoor TT. And that sucked.

    Turned out I was right about having underestimated my number previously.

    The worst part is that I made a wrong turn and ended up messing around at low speed long enough for my heart rate to drop enough to mess with my average. D'oh! Will have to revisit it relatively soon.

    What's an LT Test? Seems like if you wanted to know your lactate threshold you could look at your HR for a 30 or so minute time trial effort or similar?

    I never look forward to testing, It's all I can do to roll to a stop after the test and not fall down and vomit

    I could indeed.

    I was following the protocol in Friel's book. Which is to do a 30 minute TT and take my average from the last 20 minutes.
