T2 Aquatics – Lactate Tolerance

A reader asked for a description of a “Lactate” workout a few weeks ago. The following is an example of what I would consider a “Lactate Tolerance” practice.

 

We spent about 5 weeks performing a set like this one, about once per week — during April and May this season.
