‘Fitness Spa’ @ Racers’ Toolbox


I was at Racers’ Toolbox this afternoon for two tests – Lactate test and Fat Burning Test. And here’s a short clip of what I got to do for the Lactate test.

For the Fat Burning test, I had to put on a mask to run.

And here are the results…


Fot the Lactate test, I had to run on the treadmill for 5 sets of 5 minutes with 1 minute of break in between. The speed that I ran are 10km/hr, 11km/hr, 12km/hr, 13km/hr and 14km/hr.

Lactic acid is produced in our body all the time but it will be more significant when we exercise. When this happens, our ability to perform (in this case, running) will be affected.

Hence, from the graph above, the effects from Lactic acid affects me from 13km/hr. A good speed for me to maintain running the 26.2miles would be 11km/hr – 12km/hr.


Fat is always the best choice of energy source when we run a marathon. This is simply because we have a lot of fats as compared to the other sources such as carbohydrates and proteins. For the Fat burning test, I ran on the treadmill from 6km/hr to 14km/hr progressively over 20 minutes.

We were looking at the speed of 11km/hr to 12km/hr that we identified earlier on from the Lactate test. From the graph above, fat was the ultimate source of energy at this range of speed and this is good.

Doing the tests at Racers’ Toolbox was interesting. I didn’t know about my conditions until I took the tests. Now I know better what kinds of trainings I should focus on.

More photos and videos to come, soon!
