The mmol of plasma lactate achieved varies from person to person, but as a general rule, running along a fit runner cruising along at 85% of max heart rate will be at 2-2.5 mmol of lactate. A fit runner cruising along at 90% of max heart rate will be at 3-4 mmol of lactate. The levels vary according to factors like duration of the event, temperature outside, dehydration, fuel shortages (lower lactate levels), and muscle fiber types. People with high percentages of fast twitch fibers will have higher lactate levels, normally. A guy like Al Salazar in his prime had very low lactate levels as he ran along quickly because his muscle fiber population was highly slow twitch. I hope that helps some. Regards, Tinman
