The CXC Team and I are out in Lake Placid, NY for 17 days of training at the US Olympic Training Center. After a summer of mostly easy-volume training and L3 intervals we finally had the chance to open it up with my favorite workout, on my favorite climb in New York.
Outside of Keene, NY there is a small road that climbs in steps for about 12 minutes. We walk part of the way down during our recovery and are able to get 3 intervals done before shuttling down in the van.
6 x 4 minutes at L4 felt great. I felt more relaxed striding than ever before. That is not to say that we all weren’t pushing each other. I finished the last interval with a lactate of 15.7. I love it.
Here are some pics from cooling down after work the last few days.
