Lactic Acid

Please tell me more about lactic acid. I have a very rough idea what it is.

Thanks in advance.

I did that. I was hoping for personal experience stories.

Go to the track and start running around it as fast as you can. Then you will have a personal experience with lactic acid.

I'm not that up to speed on it and can't give a scientific explanation, but here's what I do know of it in regards to running.

When the lactic acid builds up in your body, you will slow down.

MaxVo2 is not as important as your lactate threshold level.

You can increase your running speeds by raising your lactate threshold, which does not require running at an all out pace.

You can actually get a pretty specific idea of what your threshold level is with some blood testers (like for diabetics).

I've learned that while on the tread mill.

I didn't know that. Two days ago I tested for VO2Max.

Very interesting. I am a Type 1 Diabetic (insulin dependent). You can see my insulin pump on my website.

I need to learn more about the lactate threshold. Thanks AlB!
