@CoachDavidShen: I use a HR monitor (only the Poolmate HR works u/w though) but have no idea of how to read / calculate etc my lactate threshold

@Werner: re those questionmarked acronyms you've got:
EVL may have been a typo?
I use FB to mean Facebook (sorry)
FWIW = For What It's Worth (FYI = For Your Information, etc etc)
I don't know if SB = Season's Best

Oh yes, how about MET? It stands for Metabolic Equivalent of Task and is the basis on which exercise monitors (in sports watches, fitness equipment etc) assess how many calories have been burned in a task. As far as I can tell it's a pretty unsubstantiated form of measurement, but that's what's being fed back to folk as fact.

p.s presumably Tbc means To Be Completed ? ;)

Great stuff
