May 31, 2016 – PSA – Capacity Training Session

This morning we have a traditional capacity workout consisting of a 1500m warm up, 250m anaerobic capacity set followed by a aerobic capacity set with regular spikes to elevate lactates (LA 4).

This was then followed up by slow recovery swims to reduce it back down to steady state levels (around LA 1).
