% drop in heart rate - best measure of wellness.
Quicker the drop in heart rate, better the recovery.
Recovery slows down when you are dealing with physical or mental stress, due to:
When recovery is slow - performance, wellness and energy levels are all likely to be sub-par.
Lactate [anaerobic] threshold - best predictor of endurance.
Lactic acid is produced as a by-product when muscles use glucose as fuel.
This creates the familiar sensation of "burn".
The lactate threshold is the highest intensity at which you can tolerate the amount of lactic acid being produced.
You can sustain this pace for ~60 minutes.
At intensities above the threshold, there is excess lactic acid produced, slowing you down when you cannot tolerate the "burn" anymore.
