Lactate Training Pays Off!

Well I've been following the new heart rate training zones for a year now and the results speak for themselves. I've ran new PB's for 5km (15:23), 10km (31:42), 10 miles (52:41) and half marathon (1;10:31). All of this on the back of 2 years where my performances had plateaued and I recorded no PB's!

Furthermore I had 21 runners who had been lactate threshold tested competing in the recent Athlone Half Marathon. Of these 20 recorded new PB's!

Lactate Threshold Testing in Galway

By combining a scientific approach to training, it is possible to calculate the correct training intensities for all types of run sessions. Cut out the guesswork and make sure you hit the sweet spot each and every time you run - be it a recovery run, a threshold run, an interval session or a race.

That's where a lactate threshold test will help. This allows us to accurately calculate heart rate zones for all of your run sessions.

This test is now available on an on-going basis in Galway! Here'a some photos of recent visitors:
