I jumped on the Computrainer and did my first Conconi lactate step test at high altitude. After having done maybe a hundred of these on myself over the years I no longer need to plot data points in to a graph to see the rough results. I look for three things; HR plateaus, ventilatory threshold and PE (perceived exertion). All three of these add up to give me a ballpark idea as to what my LT is right now. I crossed VT between 250-260 watts and my HR also plateaued right at 170 while PE jumped. I would guess my LT to be in the 167 HR range and ~250 watts or so. I'm still fairly sick and I am not rested so these factors are also considered. Plus my Computrainer sits at 8210 feet altitude which may have the biggest impact on lactate production. But for Leadville (if I get in) this test has more relevancy than a test at sea level would. After all, for Leadville it will be about how you perform at altitude.
2:10 total ride time.
Pm) 4 mile jog. Walked a few hills to keep my HR under 145.
